While going to jail, he keeps his chair in the name of his wife Bimala Devi i.e. Nimrat Kaur. Bimla had till now spent all her time in cow, buffalo and household chores. But Bimala Devi, who is always silent, is for a moment terrified by this position and power.
Here in the jail, the life of Ganga Ram was passing very comfortably. But then comes the reins, the new jail superintendent Jyoti Deswal i.e. Yami Gautam. She refuses to bow down to Choudhary’s chauvinism and makes him do all the jail work. Here there is a constant rift between the two and there is also a Tu-Tu Main-Main.
Meanwhile, Jyoti calls him an ‘illiterate boor’, which strikes at the heart of 8th pass Chaudhary. By then, Bimla Devi starts getting addicted to power, she becomes attached to the chief minister’s chair. She learns politics to stay in the chair. Meanwhile, Gangaram Choudhary decides to give the 10th class exam. As Chaudhary prepares for the exam in jail, he understands the importance of education. However, he also has a lot of difficulty in studies. So whether Ganga Ram is able to pass in both politics and class 10th exam or not.. The whole film revolves around this. ‘Eyes are with everyone, but eyes are with someone.
Acting: Abhishek Bachchan as Gangaram Choudhary looks fine. He has a swag that fits the character well. Yami Gautam has done a great job in the character of a police officer in front of anyone and following his principles. Yami has proved after portraying Jyoti, she goes to the surface of every new character. On the other hand, Nimrat Kaur has also shown her presence well in the character of Bimaladevi.
Direction: This is Tushar Jalota’s debut film. The theme of the film and the motive behind it is good. The film tries to entertain you along with satire in the society. But the film seems weak at many places. The first half of the film is quite slow. Rest of the film shows topics like education and politics. He focuses on the importance of education. In the film, Gangaram tells how education can change one’s thinking and understanding.
Conclusion: ‘Dusvi’ is a social comedy film. The film has some flaws, but its subject matter is good. Abhishek Bachchan, Nimrat Kaur and Yami Gautam… all three have come out in a different style this time, which will be interesting to see. 2.5 stars for ‘Dusvi’ from Dainik Bhaskar.
