“What if we were dia?” is a million-dollar question that came up to my mind when I turned switched off the movie. Human beings are the most luckiest, painful and suspensive creatures in this world. ‘Never fall in love’. And that is not possible in human life. isn’t it better to let dust get only one instead of two? Let the dust fell into both the eyes at the same time or by anyway let it be sprayed, rather than having the small fist size of the heart being so kindful and letting the dust to reach the other eye. And that’s pain what you believe. Humans are created with one heart and stay with it till the end of your life. Never make your hearts to be doubled. If one fails, then what the other will do? what will a single shoe do without its pair and that’s life!


A story of human’s kind-hearted cruelty that kills them with a word called love. Dia Swaroop (Kushi Ravi), a biotechnology student a little introverted type who develops a crush on Rohit (Dheekshith Shetty). As she wanted to talk and make love, suddenly Rohit leaves India quits his college and moves to Korea. And her life went on to her routine. 3 years passed, all of sudden she saw Rohit in her apartment’s lift and at least by this time she wanted to speak to him. And the scene there was unexpected. Rohit came back to India for her. They both made love then. One day both met with an accident and Rohit was told to be brain dead.

What does a human heart need for medication, with such circumstances play around your life? And would not believe, it is harder than a cardiac arrest. The director Ashok played his story with the hearts of millions of people living around with lots of love, kindness, humanity, painful, unlucky, lucky, affection, suspense and surprise for sure. A movie that made me visually see the human soul outside of everyone’s eyes. It conveys a lot and the director hooked it up abruptly.

Dia goes into severe depression and decides to kill herself at the railway crossings. As she stands to wait for the oncoming train she’s interrupted by a phone call from a good samaritan, Adi, who had retrieved Dia’s bag from a thief, which she wasn’t even aware of. Adi is a man who lives his life full of surprises and miracles. What will you think, if this sort of character is meeting a character such as Dia, who is dumped with lots of pain and love inside her?

The human souls are the most dangerous living thing to play with. Extreme emotions and extreme pains are the weakest links to attack and that is full of problems and pains. “People on this earth have one or the other problem, it’s all just like the mustache and beard, no matter how hard you keep trying it’ll keep growing”. Adi explores with her and teaches how happiness can be learned from pain. There’s no way to earn the past back. This god has done a major mistake by creating human beings with bloody feelings and emotions. A good bond is created with each other then. The amount of the word (value) has a very big cost and respect to it. And that can be experienced visually in the story. After somedays dia makes her way back to Mumbai to her dad’s house, while there, Adi’s emotions are felt to the audience where love is the root cause of both excessive happiness and extreme pain for humans.

Adi’s life is lucky by having his mother who calls her luckii (Pavithra Lokesh), who has made the story to understand deeply about the word, what ‘value’ is meant. Adi grows up all alone with his mother. Ashok’s mother’s love makes the story to add a bit more intense feel.

It’s often that love stories kick up with songs to add an essence to the story but dia is not, without any songs it keeps you glued with the story. (Pruthvee Ambar), especially, deserves a special mention as he lights up the screen, with his tremendous performance in acting and with an endearing act with her mother, the sentiment track that involves (Pavithra Lokesh), and she does a fine job too.

With no extra flourish and a tale that keeps you invested, Dia is new. Not many tales showcase love stories onscreen from the female point of view and this one delivers one in that space. Dia isn’t for those who like their candy floss love stories which deal with just the surface level of emotions. Instead, the film is for those who want to experience cinema in a brave new style in this commercial age.

The moral of the story is that,

No matter how much we try,

No matter how much we want it,

Some stories just don’t have a happy ending!
