Storyline

Debu Chatterjee is in his 30s, and is chided by everyone he knows as a "virgin". Tired of being stereotyped in this manner, he confides in Baba Hindustani, and Pyarelal about his predicament, and they offer to help him out, with hilarious results. Then one day, while watching a movie in a theater, Debu is shocked to see himself in an adult sex film, and this changes everything all around him, as people look at him differently than they did when they knew him to be a virgin. A stunned and perplexed Debu sets out to find out as to how he came to be caste in this movie. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Skip The Matinée
25 November 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

How to ruin a premise that had potential. The film starts off promisingly about an ordinary 30 plus guy who, frustrated of being a virgin, has finally had enough. It's the kind of problem that's too embarrassing to talk about so, out of desperation he seeks help from a 'witchdoctor' who promises a solution. However, things only go from bad to worse. The concept promises a hilarious sex comedy and it starts that way, with a few momentary annoyances, like Debu's neighbour and boss (who are irritating). However, in the second half, the script really goes haywire, losing focus and deviating from the initial premise into another halfbaked story, devoid of any humour and filled with clichés. Rahul Bose does a decent job. I was expecting to see more of Parizaad Zorabian and Anusha Dandekar, thinking that they have full-fledged roles. However, Dandekar is limited to being an item girl (she does sizzle though) and Zorabian perhaps has only about a total of less than ten minutes screen time. Saurabh Shukla and Asrani are funny and Vijay Raaz is the usual. On the technical side it's nothing impressive either. In the end, 'Mumbai Matinée' disappoints.
