Vinay instructs his team to find out, by hook or crook, what the details are of this plan, and a senior employee, Nishigandha Dasgupta, uses her charms to seduce Sehgal's groups employee, Pervez Merchant, and gets the details from him.

Enter the sleazy world of the CORPORATE BORED - ROOM

I'm not a big fan of these so called arty and DIFFERENT kind of films but I had to go check out this new mall in Mulund and I had promised my friends I would watch a movie with them and this is the only one I hadn't seen.

Needless to say I automatically lowered my expressions before I entered this film.

What struck me immediately was how DIFFERENT AND EXPERIMENTAL (In the words of Madhur Bhandarkar) this film was.

Let me illustrate. By giving you the recipe for different films.

1) All rich people are bad and morally challenged, almost all of them are whore-mongers and even the most uptight of them will indulge in premarital sex and bend the rules.

2)Poor and working class people possess a high moral character and only indulge in dirty work if forced by the circumstances.

3)All women are exploited by men, if they are rich and powerful they exploit other women and are secretly drug dealers, or pimps.

4)Most probably especially If the woman is the heroine and doing bad things (or playing along with the system) its because the circumstances have forced her but no matter what sooner or later she will have change of heart and mend her ways. IT IS NEVER EVER THE WOMENS FAULT.

5)All politicians are bad and are willing to sell the country, most of them are also whore-mongers.

6)Most if not all NGOS are run by publicity hungry people who dance to the tunes of these morally challenged rich people.

7)Any government official can be bought.

8)Anyone can get away with murder especially the bad guys.

9)All second rung actresses, actors and models are whores or characterless.

10)If enough people find the movie SAD AND DEPRESSING AND IF THEY SPEND HALF THE MOVIES BUDGET ON MARKETING THE MOVIE THEN PEOPLE WILL AGREE THAT SINCE IT IS SAD AND DEPRESSING, AND SINCE THE MAKER SAYS SO THIS FILM IS DIFFERENT ENSURING BOX OFFICE SUCCESS.

You get the drift don't you almost all the so called different film makers follow this formula or variations of it.

By promoting this cultural divide they are able to feed of the masses and the classes. All you need to do is market your movie as different and the so called lovers of cinema and socially responsible people from the classes and the uptight people from the masses will watch your film.

Safe to say this movie sticks to this formula to the hilt. It seems like PARTS OF PAGE 3 HAVE BEEN CUT OF A FEW SCENES ADDED AND A NEW FILM IS MADE.

Don't TRUST ME BUT EVEN THE AUDIENCE IN THE THEATRE SIGHED WHEN THE SECOND ITEM NUMBER WAS PLAYED AND LAUGHED AT THE SO CALLED EMOTIONAL SCENES. WHEN KK SAYS "MUJHSE GALTI HO GAYI" A CHEAP JOKE CAME TO EVERYONES MIND AND TRUST ME WAS CRACKED BY OVER 3 GROUPS OF PEOPLE AND APPRECIATED BY ALL.

The acting of this movie is great but you come to expect that from such an established cast.

Bipasha Basu's ACTING WAS STRICTLY OK SHE HAS MILES TO GO BEFORE SHE CAN TURN UP A DECENT PERFORMANCE. You could see the effort behind the scenes she showed none of the ease that the superb supporting cast and KK showed.

Sammir Dattani and Minnisha Lamba were not that attractive showpieces and their insignificant roles added nothing to the movie and only served as a distraction I can think of no CINEMATIC MOTIVE BEHIND THEM BEING IN THIS MOVIE.

The movie had to unnecessary item numbers that were ordinary none of the Rickshaw Blasting UP hilaoing KUAN MA DOOB JAOONGI here.

The guards and peons provided some much needed comic relief the part where even the biggest officials steal stationary was indeed true and hilarious.

In all and ordinary film in all aspects.

If you want to watch a DIFFERENT FILM I would recommend watching Page3 again.

+s superb acting from the entire cast, some pretty original representations of politicians, businessman and god-men.

+/-'s Bipasha Basu , soundtrack

-'s COMPLETELY UNORIGINAL AND Predictable, NOTHING NEW ON OFFER, mediocre cinematically.

total 4/10 (would have given a five because of the superb acting but cant give any encouragement to such films).
