Dor - hindi movie starring Gul Panag, Ayesha Takia, Shreyas Talpade, Girish Karnad. Directed by Nagesh Kuknoor.

After a long time, a good movie. Kuknoor who has created a genre of his own with his creative movies delivers a simple yet one with deep emotions. Refreshing to see actresses such as Ayesh Takia, written off as glamour dolls, delivering some good performance. Also good to see is people like Girish Karnad coming back although in a very small role.

Movie is about two women. Husband of one is allegedly killed by the husband of the other when they are working together in Saudi Arabia. The accused is going to be executed. Only way to save him is if the widow forgives the killer and explicitly instructs the court to release him. So, the determined wife of the accused resolves to get what she desperately needs from the wife of the dead. Does she succeed? How does she manage to do what she does when she does not even know where the wife of the dead lives? Answers to these questions forms the heart of the movie.

Gul Panag as the wife of the accused and Ayesha Takia as the wife of the dead are excellent. The chemistry is unmistakable and perfect for two women who go thru emotional roller coaster. Shreyas Talpade's performance is good too. Nagesh Kuknoor and Girish Karnand take small roles and do justice.

Very well picturized in Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan. Beautiful folk music for background is a nice one. No unnecessary songs or boring dialogs. After a long time one nice movie.
