Storyline

Three Bollywood-stricken, Calcutta-based slackers, Vijay Verma (Chunky Pandey), Bingo Nagpurkar (Satish Shah), and Khoka Ganguli (Rakesh Bedi), board the Howrah-Bombay Mail, to watch a cricket match, and to meet Mithun Chakraborty. After boarding, the trio consume considerable alcohol. Vijay introduces himself to two other passengers, C.K. Kadam (Amol Palekar), and Manjula Saxena (Ritu Parna), as he finds the latter very attractive. He wants to change his seat to sit next to her, but the passenger, Pankaj Nigam, occupying it, refuses to leave, leading to a physical altercation, which ends in Vijay being asked to return to his seat. During a stopover, Pankaj departs, and when the train resumes its journey, Mr. Kadam finds Manjula's dead body. The police begin their investigation, and interrogate Pankaj and Vijay, and not only discover that Pankaj is not who he claims to be, but there is also a third unknown suspect.

Good actors in a Poor remake!
10 September 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I struggled to give a score of 6/10 to this remake of a Malayalam murder mystery No.20, Madras Mail ..It had a good premise, some solid actors who are natural performers like Amol Palekar, Mithun and Sadashiv Amrapurkar... But the first half is a torture with terrible trio of Satish Shah, Rakesh Bedi and Chunky Pandey's lame attempts at humour and too many ordinary songs with an equally ordinary looking leading lady Somy Ali were all avoidable if the movie was supposed to be a thriller..

The victim Rituparna's strange re-appearance into the train is inexplicable... Javed Jaffrey's role was not fully fleshed out. His motive for revenge against Chunky pandey, reluctance to co-operate with the police ,after the murder of Rituparna sen gupta is not revealed even at the end.. The three wastrels using/misusing Mithun chakravarthy the actor also did not make much sense.. The killer's identity, intentions to murder which are key elements ins a thriller are not powerful or convincing enough.. Not a bad choice if you have nothing to see on a rainy weekend...
