Just saw Dor on DVD, one of the most colourful and Vibrant movie of the year. Amazing cinematography and contrasting locations, from the Dry Sand dunes of Rajasthan to green lush mountains to Himachal Pradesh.

Dor is the story about 2 different women from different places connected by a common incident in Saudi Arabia. Its about a women's quest and journey to seek pardon for the Husband who faces death penalty for the accidental death of his friend. The only way she can save her husband is if the victims wife signs the MAafinama(Pardon petition) as per Saudi Law.
The movie brings out the best in Ayesha Takia, Gul Panag also does a great job and ye Shreyas Talpade who plays a Bahuroopiya finally speaks and he surely does speak and mimic more than needed.
Like every Nagesh Kuknoor film it has good songs by Salim-Sulaiman.The best songs are Yeh Honsla, Imaan Ka Asar, Kesariya Balam

Worth a Dekko 3.5/5
G1. As usual Nagesh Kuknoor saved money by giving himself a role in the movie.
G2. Ayesha Takia has no hot scene so don't get the DVD if your expecting any hot scenes.
G3. During the shooting of the climax Train scene Ayesha Takia trips and falls while running parallel to the train.
G4. Ayesha considers Nagesh Kuknoor as her Brother :)), Poor Nagesh KLPD.
