Deepshika's Victory As An Actress
Deepshika has come a long way since she made her debut. It's been a long struggle for an actress who previously had no connection to the film industry and with 'Yeh Dooriyan' she proves how far she's come. Here she assumes multiple roles behind the camera as director, producer, writer, costume designer and plays the lead actress. She also chooses an interesting theme that is considered controversial in India, that of a successful independent divorcée with two children being in a relationship with and wanting to marry a younger man. Deepshika's treatment of the theme is sincere and well addressed well. It is especially stressed out brilliantly in the final sequence. Clearly this woman has put a lot of effort into the film.

However, 'Yeh Dooriyan' has plenty of faults. I can understand that Deepshika wanted the film to appeal to the masses but the writing tends to adhere to clichés. Most of the dialogue is substandard. The pacing is also uneven. The songs are below average (a few are quite dreadful) and they appear randomly, visualized like MTV videos. Keshav Arora is another weak link. His acting, especially when he confronts Simi after his mother's departure, is very poor. The rest of the cast are space-fillers.

The one to keep her head up high is the gorgeous Deepshika as the leading lady. Finally she has created a role for herself that exposes her talent as an actress to the fullest and she does a remarkable job. She is the main reason to watch 'Yeh Dooriyan'. If only her script was tighter and she didn't follow Bollywood conventions, the film could have been something solid. But hey, now that she's demonstrated what an effortless performer she is, better luck next time. I'll be looking forward to her next ventures.
