Twist in the tale arises when Manikyam kidnaps Chandu's dad and sister and demands him to return the money back. What will Chandu do now ? How will he lend back the huge amount to Manikyam ? and where does Kriti Sanon feature in all this set up ? That forms the rest of the story.
Dohchay is along the lines of the 9211 (short film), Raja Natwarlal, Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena, Love Actually, Run Raja Run where we see the slimly bad hero doing thing the way to set things right. Sudheer Varma, however doesn't manage to balance all the aspects of this conic film. Dohchay starts low on momentum and even hurried climax sequence can't scavenge everything. This doesn't cover all the important bases and even an promised sense of direction by Sudheer is not quite enough. Dohchay, therefore ends up being a much lesser film that it could have been. It could have been reveled a lot more; had the con been made more entertaining and loopholes been less in number.The script of Dohchay is chivvied with loony writing. Its an ordinary script that divulges almost nothing to the audiences. The big plan of bringing down a policeman and a gangster is something the film at no point lays out for its audience. Its done to easily, too handily sans any cheekiness. It offends viewers how lightly the story is taken. The is no thrill, no condemnation and no maven in the story which strives to attain even averageness. The romantic track works as a distraction more than a part of the story. It seems frequently that when the plotline begins to go awry, the writer fit in a song out of the blue or needless romantic moment.Other technical aspects of Dohchay are decent but they don't shine through. The editing is good, but the flow is missing. The cinematography by Richard Prasad is one of the major assets of the film. His framing actually elevates action scenes and songs. Music by Sunny MR is good. And the background score is engaging. The editor Karthika Srinivas could have moiled out a miracle with his editing, a factor that is responsible for the film hauling. Dialogues of the routine and the production values of SVCC are grand.
