Bollywood sees the debut of two-star kids, Rajveer Deol, son of Sunny Deol, and Paloma Dhillon, daughter of Poonam Dhillon, in the film ‘Dono.’ Directed by Avneesh Barjatya, the son of renowned director Sooraj Barjatya, ‘Dono’ offers a modern twist to traditional love stories, adding a fresh perspective to romantic cinema.

Rajshri Productions’ Signature Touch

Known for its family-centric films, Rajshri Productions continues its legacy with ‘Dono.’ Avneesh, who has also penned the story, stays true to the Rajshri tradition of creating heartwarming family dramas. The film features a wedding backdrop, a recurring theme in his father’s films, with the serene beauty of Thailand serving as the setting for this destination wedding.

Unveiling the Plot

‘Dono’ revolves around Dev Saraf (Rajveer Deol), an entrepreneur in Bengaluru trying to establish his startup. Dev secretly carries a decade-long unexpressed love for his best friend Alina (Kanika Kapoor). The story takes a turn when Dev, Alina, and their friends, including Megha (Paloma) and her ex-boyfriend Gaurav (Aditya Nanda), attend Alina’s destination wedding in Thailand.

In Thailand, Megha and Dev cross paths, setting the stage for a new chapter in their lives. The film explores the theme of breaking free from old relationships that no longer bring happiness and embarking on a journey of self-discovery and love.

Avneesh’s Directorial Debut

Avneesh Barjatya, following in his father’s footsteps, infuses ‘Dono’ with wedding traditions and customs in a picturesque Thai backdrop. The film addresses the complexities of unrequited love, the dilemmas of past relationships, and the expectations associated with marriage. Through the characters of Dev and Megha, ‘Dono’ encourages viewers to let go of old bonds and embrace new beginnings.

The film doesn’t offer a groundbreaking storyline but effectively captures the essence of youth-centric love stories. Avneesh showcases promise as a director, and his ability to convey the message of freeing oneself from unfulfilling relationships shines through.

Rajveer and Paloma’s Debut

Rajveer Deol portrays Dev’s longing for unrequited love and his struggle to express his emotions convincingly. His performance indicates that he possesses the potential to shine as a new-generation actor.

Paloma Dhillon, Poonam Dhillon’s daughter, delivers a compelling performance as Megha, skillfully portraying the inner turmoil of a modern woman and her attraction to Dev. Kanika Kapoor’s portrayal of Alina is commendable.

‘Dono’ boasts exceptional cinematography by Chiranjan Das, beautifully capturing Thailand’s breathtaking landscapes. Shankar Ehsaan Loy’s music enhances the film’s charm, although it may not be as impactful as previous Rajshri productions.

In summary, ‘Dono’ offers a refreshing take on love and relationships, introducing promising talent in Rajveer Deol and Paloma Dhillon. With the legacy of Rajshri Productions backing them, these star kids show potential for a bright future in Bollywood.
