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. This gives Vinay the edge over Dharmesh and he quickly announces "Just Chill" a mint-based cold drink, and he hands over this project to his wife's brother, Ritesh Shahani, who is also the live-in spouse of Nishigandha.

Must watch for every graduate of business school – Reality Shock!
4 January 2008 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

The cut-throat corporate wars, business tactics, strategies, sleazy deals, political paybacks, eroded business values, the soft-drink scandal.... you name it Corporate has it all... with a touch of realism.

Flip open a copy of The Economic Times, the headlines forms the backbone of the movie. In an attempt to incorporate all of them (which require background and screen time), the movie as whole does not get it right.

The snippets/ humour predominant in Page-3 are missing in Corporate.

Raj Babbar is perfect as Marwah, typical business dynasty. Its good to see Navni Parihar after a long time. The superstitious beliefs of Dharmesh Marwah are true-to-life.

Rajat Kapoor is a perfect cast for the Harvard graduate raring to be the nexgen entrepreneur.

Lillete Dubey as the media bookie is perfectly cast.

Minisha Lamba's role got chopped at the editing table big time.

Sandeep Mehta does the leachy Pervez with utmost perfection that you will hate the very sight of him.

Kay Kay Menon – this guy is a powerhouse of talent and no two ways about it. Very effective.

And finally Bipasha – in business suits she gets into the character of no nonsense Nishi. She portrays the softer side of the character equally well.

Thanks to real-life celebrity for this appearances in the movie.

Finally the end is similar to Chandni Bar – bit depressing, true-to-life.... reinforcing the fact that might is right.
