24 February 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It heartens me to see such movies coming out of bollywood. The movie runs for about 2 hours and never is a drag. I would not want to delve into the story too far... I think this is one of those movies which must be seen.

The movie is all about a day when John hires Nana's taxi and the things start going wrong ... The movie is to the point and does not have any unnecessary songs/scenes (masala). The comedy is superb and the movie itself is quite a thriller.

All characters have played their roles well.. Nana delivers another great performance. Milan luthra shines as the director.

We need more of these kind of movies from Bollywood.
