Debutant director Ajoy has done a fantastic job in bringing this story to life. We are very confident of touching the audience’s hearts and winning box office gold. We are very proud to be associated with the Hollywood studio Warner Bros. Pictures.”
“I have always been fascinated with small towns and villages in our cinema. But such films are not made very often these days. I’m glad my first film Dus Tola is set in a charming little town and I think I have been able to depict that quirkiness on screen. It was a great experience working with Manoj Bajpayee, one of the finest actors of our times. My producer AryanBrothers has been very supportive and encouraging”, adds the director Ajoy.
Inspired by the folk tales which are passed on from one generation to another, Dus Tola is a simply told story of the victory of goodness over greed. The story is set in Sonapur, a quaint little town that has its share of eccentrics. Shankar (Manoj Bajpayee), the local goldsmith is head-over-heels in love with his neighbour’s daughter Suvarnalata (Aarti Chhabria) much to the chagrin of her father Daya Shastri (Dilip Prabahvalkar). Shastri is bent upon finding her a suitable groom from Dubai and cover her with gold at the wedding which will help him climb up the social ladder. Armed with nothing but a heart of pure gold, Shankar sets out to overcome the obstacles of devious plots and heartache. A slice-of-life tale which mirrors our society, Dus Tola is light-hearted in its narrative.
