Muskurake Dekh Zara is a story of a young 'boy man' named Vivek. It's a story of simple emotions & disappointments of love and life. Vivek (Gashmeer Mahajani) has an 'upright' attitude, and ability to put people in their place and add lightness into moody and mundane situations not only when he interacts with his life's love Preeti (Twinkle Patel) but also when he encounters and jests with the simple, funny and harmless folks - like the eccentric live in DLT (Duniya Lal Tripati), the 'badnaseeb' hotel manager Khaatkar , the curious curio shop owner Elton, the heroine's eternally inebriated Chaacha who feels that one's 'spirit' can be derived only from downing spirits. The film's lighter moments beautifully intersperse with the hero's portrayal of a character of depth.
An incident of embarrassment drives Vivek from his hometown to Mumbai where he falls in love with Preeti. His leadership qualities & unusual understanding of situations makes his friends look up to him. It is his wonderful ability to reason that wins him the love of Preeti & finally put the villain Prakash Raj at bay.
In MDZ, it's not just love & disappointment but the fresh way they are handled that makes the film unique. With presence & not prejudice of the mind, Vivek deals with life's various & varied situations as they happen to him. This Love & Laughter story is propped up by excellent comedy tracks & songs.
