Dobaaraa Movie Story

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the mystery drama is a time loop movie. The movie has been originally made in Spanish in 2018 and the name of the movie was Mirage. The Spanish movie itself was based on Oriol Paulo‘s novel Mirage.

The movie begins with an electrical storm in 1996 and a boy who witnessed a murder by his neighbors. Then we have 2021, in which  Tapsee with her husband and daughter shifted to a new house in which they found an old TV and a video camera. And at night, when Tapsee tried to watch the video, she found out that the boy Anay is in the TV in the same room as she was. Both can communicate with each other through that TV. 

In the year 2021, Tapsee has already read in the newspaper that the boy met with an accident and was dead on road by a fire brigade who is the witness of the murder in the house adjoining his house. The movie shifted from present to past and past to present smoothly. Dobaaraa, is a well-acted, nimbly crafted time-loop thriller.

In 1996, on a stormy night, a 12 years old boy got dead and is a witness to a woman’s murder. At the same time, 25 years later, in a storm of the same intensity  Antara’s ( Tapsee ) daughter goes missing. She tried to help Anay through TV and stopped him from going out and saving his life in the past. Thereafter, her own life changed dramatically.

She ends up in an alternate reality she’s created: one in which her life is completely different. This is the third Hindi remake of an Oriol Paulo movie in four years. Sujoy Ghosh turned The Invisible Guest (2016) into Badla (starring Pannu alongside Amitabh Bachchan) and Jeethu Joseph reshaped El Cuerpo (2012) into The Body. Badla and The Body, both released in 2019, had foreign settings and sought to stay as close as possible to the ambiance of the original films

Dobaaraa Movie Review

The movie Dobaara is engaging and keeps the audience entertained consistently. The movie Dobaara has been set up in a Pune suburb and sticks to the original story but we cannot call it a copy. A boy who was a Terminator movie fan, wearing a T-shirt that announces “ I’ll be back.” He videotapes himself on a stormy night.

And the boy is indeed back via an old television set, a camcorder, and an incomplete video recording found abandoned in a storeroom. Fate has its death on the same day at 02:12. The watch shows 2:12 AM – that is from where the film’s title, Dobaaraa, stems.

Dobaara is a matter-of-fact interplay of past and present. A woman who has given up on her career as a doctor and has just been shifted with her husband and daughter. The character played by Tapsee is applaudable. The ease with which she moved from one-time frame to another is marvelous. 

In one reality, she is a mother to a girl and a medical nurse, in another she is a highly regarded surgeon in desperate search of her missing daughter. In the latter timeline, she runs into many a wall because nobody recognizes who she is. Actually, the movie revolves around dysfunctional marriages, cheating husbands, and other women.

The Bollywood film ‘Dobaaraa’, which is an official remake of the Spanish ‘Mirage’, tanked at the box office on Friday (August 19). The Anurag Kashyap-directed movie, which features actress Taapsee Pannu in the lead role, registered a paltry 2-3% occupancy in the theatres. According to film critic and trade analyst Sumit Kadel, early shows of the Dobaaraa were canceled due to a lack of audience footfall.

He had earlier predicted that the film might collect ₹20-35 lakhs on the opening day and a lifetime revenue of ₹1.25-₹1.5 crores. However, the film failed to live up to even such low expectations.

It must be mentioned that both Anurag Kashyap and Taapse Pannu made condescending remarks about the audience, prior to the release of the film Dobaara.’ The duo went a step ahead and urged people to boycott their movie. While speaking to India Today, Taapsee Pannu said, “Please everyone boycott our film, Dobaaraa. I want to be in the same league as Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan. I feel left out.”

She further claimed that those who raise boycott calls on Twitter do not go to theatres to watch the movie in the first place.

Anurag Kashyap, Taapsee Pannu’s time-travel saga is mildly engaging when not verbose. Dobaaraa is moderately thrilling and in parts genuinely frightening, but lacks the rootedness and heft that has come to be associated with Anurag-ness.    First
