Storyline

Employed in Kurla in a Multinational Call Center where he is instructed to speak with an accent, Nilesh Rastogi misses the last 1:40 AM Kalyan-bound local-train to return home to Vikhroli. Asked to leave the platform by a Hawaldar, he goes looking for an alternate place to hang out until the next train at 4:10 AM. He meets with a stranded woman, Madhu, and both find out that auto-rickshaws are on a flash strike due to a bomb blast at Ghatkopar. Their attempts to find alternate transportation are in vain, the duo then attend a bar and this is where both their lives will be turned upside down. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Director Sanjay Khanduri Planned a sequel, Titled "Gyarah Chalis ki Akhri Metro", which included Vivek Oberoi and Mallika Sherawat as lead pair. But the project didn't seemed to be a perfect follow up to the original, so the title was changed and was released as an independent film "Kismat,Love,Paisa,Delhi". The film bombed at box-office.

Goofs

In the first scene when the actor (Abhay Deol) tries to catch the train his jacket falls on the platform, so he runs in the opposite direction to collect the jacket, but in the very next scene it can be seen that the train runs in the same direction he ran to collect the jacket. See more »

Awesome entertainer
24 August 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I must have seen this film 22 times. Something about it that makes you laugh all the time. Hv a full circle of friends mad over Ek Chalis. I very much enjoyed this dark comedy that is most set in a night between 1:40 and 4:10. On his way home a young man, Nilesh misses the last train. The next one's due at 4:10 so he goes wondering the streets in search of a taxi or any other alternative that will get him home. He only has 70 rupees but, by the end of the night, he ends up with 25 million. How? During Nilesh's adventure (or misadventure) we are introduced to various characters including a Nana Patekar wannabe wannabe, a corpulent 'cabaret' singer, an obese 'hijra', a glass-eyed hit-man, a wacky chatterbox of a tomboy, a ruthless CC (corrupt cop) and lots of unusual 'visitors' of the night.

Abhay Deol is one of the very few fine actors of the current generation who is a risk-taker. Though he seems to be getting into greedy now. .

Neha Dhupia is mostly adequate but in a few scenes, she tends to go over the top. Still her best job till date. The supporting cast are great and really bring out the humor. I just thought the cops and gay goon who tries to rape Abhay was cooool. Three hit men in the car sequences were bit loud and could have used some slight toning down. But twist in screenplay keeps u on edge. I think he has screenplay sense and art of film making better than Sajid Khans and 99% of directors boasting today.

The songs play in the background are blended so well. There is one very pleasant song that often repeats in the background, a great song for a rainy or just-rained scene. The cabaret number 'Kukuruku' is quite catchy. The voice-over is quite charming and quirky and gives more insight into Nilesh's character.

Director Khanduri deserves a pat on the shoulder for coming up with something different that is so much fun to watch.

Now Im just dying to see this director's new film KLPD aka Kismat Love Paisa Dilli. He is coming back after 5 years we r hoping it is as mad or more.
