Dam at the launch party for Hate Story, her debut Bollywood film
In 2012, Dam made her Bollywood debut in Hate Story, directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Vikram Bhatt. The film had female protagonists; Dam played Kavyah Krishna, a sex worker. In the film, she and her friend Vicky pull off a caper against one of India’s biggest business tycoons.
Dam’s performance in this film received a lukewarm response. The Times of India in its review:
Paoli Dam doesn’t disappoint one bit on the latter aspect, she is not bad in terms of her acting abilities either. She doesn’t incite the pathos that one could fervently feel for her character’s plight. But though her act is not accomplished, she manages to pull off her role quite well.
After the film’s commercial success, producer Vikram Bhatt planned a sequel, in which Dam was replaced by Surveen Chawla.
After Hate Story, Dam appeared in Vikram Bhatt’s next film Ankur Arora Murder Case. The film, directed by Sohail Tatari, is based on the true story of a young boy who died in an operating room due to medical negligence. Dam plays a lawyer fighting for justice. In an interview, she described her role: “It’s something very real and close to life and it’s a de-glamourised role. It’s something that I really enjoyed playing”. After attending a special screening of the film in Mumbai, Indian film critic and journalist Taran Adarsh called Dam and said that she should work more in Bollywood.
Dam performed an item number in the 2014 comedy-horror film Gang of Ghosts, directed by Satish Kaushik.
Dam is scheduled to appear in the Hindi film Yaara Silly Silly, directed by Subhash Sehgal. As of April 2013, she will also appear in Ashuu Trikha’s thriller Jee Jaan Se (with Kay Kay Menon and Raveena Tandon) as a homemaker whose life is shattered after the death of her husband. According to a 25 April 2013 article in The Times of India, after working in two Vikram Bhatt films, Dam has been offered a third (also a thriller).
In 2012, Dam began working on the Konkani film Baga Beach, directed by Laxmikant Shetgaonkar. The actress said in an interview: “I like working in different kinds of films. I met Laxmikant Shetgaonkar at the Cannes film festival in 2011 and later heard his script for Baga Beach and liked it. I thought it would be a very unique experience working in a Konkani film. And I thought 15 to 20 days of commitment to a film is not much to give”.
