Yeh Faasley - movie review

Arunima (Tena Desae) is the daughter of one of the biggest builders in town, Devinder Dua (Anupam Kher). She is happy to be home after finishing her studies. Yeh Faasley movie review…

Arunima returns home after a long stint in boarding school. Life is great for Arunima who is looking forward to a pleasant time with her father but also misses her mother and wishes that she were alive.

She finds contentment in the fact that her mother and father loved each other and were happy for as long as they were together. Her father is generous and loving but slowly Arunima discovers that his version of how her mother died isn’t the whole truth.

Dev Dua is a gregarious man who loves his daughter a lot, but has a dual personality of being loud and boastful sometimes, and then a kind and understanding person at other times.

However, one day to her surprise, Arunima finds a “will” written by her mother which makes her question why a woman who died at an early age of 28 in a car accident would leave a will for her daughter. The presence and the essence of the will intrigues Arunima and with her father avoiding all questions to do with her mother, further frustrates her.

She slowly realizes that her mother’s personality was quite different from what she has been told and the past wasn’t as happy as she imagined it to be.

With questions unanswered and suspicions raised, Arunima is left in doubt about what really is the past. She is at a loss, as she learns that the man she loves the most – her father – has many shades that she was unaware of.

The father has hidden many aspects of his troubled marriage from his loving daughter – like how he and her mother met in college and how a Rajasthani princess fell in love with a “Jath-mazdoor”.

Arunima begins to investigate and finds herself torn between her love for her father and her duty to her dead mother. There is a spooky house in a hill station where the incident happened.

Arunima is torn between love for her father and the truth. The man she loves the most is the man she now mistrusts. She is living in a shadow of too many secrets…

Hence Arunima sets out on a journey to find the truth about her mother’s and father’s past.

Will this search for truth make the bond between the father and daughter stronger? Or will it take her to reveal a sinister figure behind the facade of a loving father?

Arunima sets out to uncover the distance between the past and the present – Yeh Faasley.

Anupam Kher has portrayed the complexities of a man who is passionately in love with his wife and yet deeply insecure about it. Fine actors like Pavan Malhotra and Seema Biswas do not have any scope in Yeh Faasley. Tena Desai is a talented and a charming girl who is marvelously restrained.

Director Yogesh Mittal has tried his bit on making Yeh Faasley a thriller or then a murder mystery and then just a family drama. This is where the interest wanes off. The film does show repeated flashbacks and there are flashes of substance and form, but on the whole it could have been a tight thriller.
