Widowed Mrs. Braganza rents her house to seven struggling wanna-be film artistes, who want to make it big in Bollywood, they are Sushmita Banerjee who wants to be a writer; Aditya Sharma who hopes to take over from Shahrukh Khan; pretty Ankita Kulkarni who wants to be an actress and is in love with Aditya; Nandini Shetty who fancies herself a future Lata Mangeshkar; Irfan wants to be a lyricist; while Raman and Vijay want to be music director and actor respectively. Their aspirations lead them to naught and they are even unable to pay rent to Mrs. Braganza for nearly 5 months.

I was amazed by this movie. I won't say too much to give away thought but this movie shows how ambition can become obsession. With the Indian film industry and the mob as a background, it also shows the struggle of those who want to make it big in the industry. It is Bollywood's best thriller so far! Full of suspense and great performances! I think Mahima Chaudhry is the only actress today who's done nothing but good work (and who's still struggling with success). Her movies are really full of surprises (and she also gives pleasantly surprising performances. It's a pity and a real shame on Bollywood that the film didn't succeed! India's best thriller has gone unnoticed! The only other Indian thriller that I'll put on the same shelf is Teen Deewarein. But there's still hope for this one and hopefully people will watch this movie otherwise they really don't know what they're missing.
