Storyline

Riya lives a middle-classed lifestyle in Mumbai and works as an Assistant Director for a movie producer, Bharucha. After the passing of her mother, she is consoled by a young man, Anthony Gonsalves, in the church graveyard. He introduces himself as the son of Jeffrey, who passed away during 1986, and works as a waiter in Jimmy's Pub, Bandra and wants to be a Bollywood actor. Thereafter she meets him again in the studios when he comes to audition for the part of Mark Anthony in a re-make of Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'. Both are attracted to each other and continue to meet. Little does Riya know that Anthony has lied to her, as he never had a father by the name of Jeffrey, and the real person who brought him up is a gangster and killer, Sikander, who is now a suspect in the sudden disappearance of Police Inspector Gupta.

Unexpected pleasure
28 January 2008 | by (minneapolis, US) – See all my reviews

Not often I get to watch a movie knowing nothing about it, MNIAG was one of those. And what a treat it turned out to be. After the tear-jerking, heartrending glop turned out in TZP, this was an unpretentious delight- nice acting by all concerned, simple story line (though a thoroughly gratuitous fight scene at the end) And that Amrita Rau- she is the spitting image of Emmanuelle Chirqui and equally bubbly! Just the right kind of movie to watch of a Sunday afternoon, no hamming and quite a pleasure to see Anupam Kher actually acting instead of hamming it up as he seems to have been forever since Saraansh.

Yeah, all said and done I recommend MNIAG most heartily and am awfully surprised to see the rating of 5.2 or whatever it has. Must be a bunch of philistines who mistook the shameless emotional manipulation of TZP for real cinema!
