Cast: Kushee Ravi, Pruthvi Ambaar, Dheekshith Shetty and Pavitra Lokesh
Directed By: KS Ashoka
Dia is a unique love story that tells the unpredictable nature of life. As Pruthvi Ambaar's character says Life is full of surprises and miracles.
This love story is from a girl's point of view, Dia (Kushee Ravi). Dia is an introvert falls in love with her college senior Rohit (Dheekshith Shetty). But destiny separates them and she meets another guy Adi who becomes her best friend or maybe beyond that. The conflict between these three characters unfolds the rest of the story.
The film is directed by KS Ashoka who made a unique found footage horror film 6-5=2 in 2013 which was new to Indian Cinema. So when the same director makes a romantic film as his second venture it will be obviously not usually come fall in love format romantic film.
It is commendable that the director made a 135-minute romantic film without a single romantic or melody or break-up track which is out-of-the-box itself.
Dia turns to be a different kind of romantic film that portrays real-life characters with sheer honesty. The narration of the film and the treatment given to the film is in a feel-good style but the film is not a slice of life or coming of age kind love story.
The film has many standouts scenes such as the realization of Dia and Rohit having feelings for each other or the relationship between Adi and his mother Lakshmi a.k.a Lucky (beautiful performance by Pavitra Lokesh). The post-climax of the film will give you goosebumps and will stay with you for a while.
The only minus point in the story of the film was the relationship between Dia and her father which was not showcased properly. The characterization of Dia's father was half-baked.
Main lead actors haven't given a stellar performance but still, it convinces the audience watching. Pruthvi as hams a bit in an emotional breakdown scene. Kushee as introvert Dia has given a decent performance.
Overall, Dia is a different kind of love story that should not be missed it will surely give an impact upon the audience.
The film is now streaming on Amazon prime video.
