Yeh Faasley: A thin plot and a thinner script

Producer: Om Prakash Mittal
Director: Yogesh Mittal
Anupam Kher, Pawan Malhotra, Tena Desae, Rushad Rana, Kiran Kumar, Suhasini Mulay, Sudha Chandran, Seema Biswas, Rajendra Gupta

MUMBAI: Om Prakash Mittal of Bhawani Pictures is a veteran film distributor in Delhi-UP circuit. While being very discerning about what films he acquired for release in his circuit, it is surprising that he chose to make Yeh Faasley as his production venture; let alone succeed, the film will have a tough time finding minimum number of patrons to perform a show!
Yeh Faasley is a murder mystery that has gone out of vogue because there are not many who can justify the genre. With a thin plot and a thinner script, the film becomes tedious to watch.

Tena Desae loves her doting father, Anupam Kher; he has brought her up since she was a tot when her mother had died. In the course of events, Tena finds out that her father has a violent streak in him; she also realises that he has not told her all about her dead mother. Through Pawan Malhotra, a former royal, she learns that her mother was passionate about music, a passion she shared with Malhotra.

Tena Desae now believes that her mother did not die a natural death as she was made to believe and starts snooping around. Her suspicion falls on her father, Anupam Kher, which makes her sue him in the court of law. The film meanders then on to a predictable end.

Performance wise, Anupam Kher and Pawan Malhotra do well. Tena Desae does not impress.

With average direction and photography being below par, Yeh Faasley has poor prospects.
