Nayantara, who is basking in the status of Lady Superstar, has come up with her first film of the year. She essays the titular role in this horror thriller directed by debutant Doss Ramaswamy. Here then, Nayantara should be appreciated for having faith in a debut director. But how is the result?


Nayantara essays the role of an innocent and naïve girl named Pavalakodi. She is the daughter ofr Thambi Ramaiah and belongs to a middle class family.Due to turn of circumstances Nayantara and Thambi Ramaiah decide to start a taxi business. There is a car named Dora which adds to the thrill of the story. A dog also plays an important role in the film. Watch the movie to know how it proceeds.

Star Performances

The movie is totally dependent on Nayantara’s star value and she does full justice to her character. In the first half, her characted is etched in a light-hearted manner. It is in the second half she gets the fullest chance to prove her acting talent. As for Thambi Ramaiah, his character could have been etched better. However, he excels in comedy. Harish Uthaman is average in his role.


Dora has been released in both Tamil and Telugu. Nayantara has a good fan base in both these places. After Maya, where she worked in another horror flick, Nayantara has worked in yet another power-packed flick. While it is natural to compare both Maya and Dora, it is apt to say that the latter is a perfect fodder of Nayantara, who has been selecting content-driven films of late. 

What’s there?

  • The movie has a unique plot.
  • Vivek-Mervin’s music is one of the assets of the film. As far as thriller movies are concerned music is one of the deciding factors. Here then the duo hasn’t failed to impress the audiences.
  • BGM of Dora gels well with the tempo of the film.
  • The cinematography of Dora is commendable.

What’s not there?

  • The second half of Dora is bit dragging.
  • More concentration could have been given to the writing part of Dora.


The director tries to tell something different and the film works in bits and pieces.
