For quite sometimes now we have been keeping our patrons updated about Vinay Pathak and his first film as a producer, DASVIDANIYA. Here's some more interesting info!
Most people erroneously think that DASVIDANIYA means goodbye in Russian. To an extent it does. However, things are not as simple as they look here! The movie's title is derived from the Russian word, 'dosvidania'. It's an intended pun on the list of ten things (so we have DASVIDANIYA, note the word 'das', which means ten in Hindi!) that DASVIDANIYA's Amar Kaul (Vinay Pathak) draws up to do in the film, in order to make his life more fulfilling. And in the end how he bravely goes about achieving his set goal forms the most interesting part of the film.
So, all those who thought that DASVIDANIYA was goodbye in Russian now know the exact word and the reason behind the intelligent title.
