Dukaan (2024) Hindi movie

The story of surrogacy and its consequences between the birth donor and the parents is presented by director duo Siddharth-Garima. In Dukaan, a female picks an unconventional route to get money, but when she realizes she loves her surrogate son, she steps into a trap. The filmmakers took on a compelling subject but were unable to make an impact on the entire project, whether it was telling this particular tale or revealing a world that hasn’t been revealed or examined in a mainstream commercial picture to yet.

Fearless Gujarati teenager Jasmine Patel (Monika Panwar) falls in love with shop owner and single mother Sumer (Sikandar Kher). She chooses to marry him straight away, and although though she doesn’t want children, she gives birth to a boy shortly after. Sumer leaves left his wife Jasmine, infant, and daughter before his away in a natural disaster soon after.

Jasmine chooses to work as a surrogate for a doctor at a nearby hospital in order to support herself. However, life presents its own difficulties; Jasmine declines to deliver her child to the impoverished parents. Will she follow the terms of the contract or will being a mother come first?

Siddharth-Garima chooses an interesting topic, but as it develops, it becomes too problematic. The woman is shown grieving for her surrogate child from the start, while her son from her deceased husband is nowhere to be seen. Why is there just so much outcry for him?

The two deftly mimic the tone of maverick Sanjay Leela Bhansali and deftly combine it with Mimi, starring Kriti Sanon, and Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, starring Rani Mukerji. Additionally, Jasmine, the main character, attempts to mimic Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi performance at several occasions. Dukaan is a preventable example of a societal taboo that persists despite all of that.

It is absurd that law and order has no bearing on the story at all, yet directors take into consideration the bill that the highest court has submitted but has not yet passed. While exercising creative freedom is acceptable, making fun of it is not. Although Sunny Deol’s cameo seems forced, it makes people nostalgic since he says the well-known line “Yeh Haath Agar Uth Gaya To.”

With the exception of Monika, Sikandar, and possibly Himani Shivpuri, the performers were always in competition to provide terrible performances. Monali need to limit herself to singing. She ought to give it some serious thought in light of Lakshmi’s fiasco. Her co-star, who plays her husband, is obviously intolerable on film, and she appears fat. Her hair extensions are also very noticeable.

Take a chance on yourself if you’re willing to learn some Garba dancing moves, want to learn more about Gujarati culture, or want to see a young, talented woman perform at her best; if not, Mimi and Chori Chori Chupke Chupke are still far better options.
