Poster of the film shows caricature of the artistes in a state of disarray and puzzlement, each trying to grasp the situation from its tail. Commented Manoj Bajpayee, who reached the venue on the dot of 3 PM, “I have enjoyed working in this film. It’s simple but has so much of humor coming out of everyday life. It’s comedy is 24 carat pure. It’s fun film” When asked if he would like to buy gold jewellary or diamonds for his wife, he tells, “if it is left to me I would go for diamonds but my wife has a taste for gold. And women do win in the end”.
Added director Ajoy, “I had always wanted Manoj to play the role of Shankar. He has brought forward the element of humor in much understated manner, making it real and clean. There is nothing slapstick about this film but it makes people laugh. It has reflection of Malgudi Days but very fresh in its perspective.”
Aarti Chhabria is happy that she has got a performance oriented role and is “waiting for the audience response.”
Inspired by the folk tales passed on from one generation to another, ‘Dus Tola’ is a simply told story of 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. ‘Dus Tola’, a slice-of-life tale which mirrors our society, and is light-hearted in its narrative.
Produced by Kunwar Pragy Arya and directed by Ajoy film Dus Tola is released in India on 22nd October by Warner Bros. Pictures. Its star cast includes Manoj Bajpayee, Aarti Chhabria, Pallavi Sharda (debutant), Sid Makkar, Govind Namdeo, Asrani, Ninad Kamat, Dilip Prabahwalkar, Bharti Achrekar and others.
