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)

A lifetime packed into 3 hours!
8 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Abhay Deol plays Nilesh, a Call Center worker who misses the last local leaving at 1:40 am. The next one is only at 4:20 and the remaining hours cannot be spent on the platform. His 'chance' encounter with Madhu (Neha Dhupia), who is also looking for a taxi/auto leads to a rollicking adventure that goes from thrills to chills to the downright macabre. In these three hours we encounter eunuchs, hookers, psychopaths, various gang lords, corrupt Mumbai policemen (including a scripture quoting one modeled after the Samuel L. Jackson character from Pulp Fiction), a cabbie who thinks he is Nana Patekar, an encounter between Nilesh and a gang lord that involves ropes, gags and blindfolds (like Pulp Fiction again), kidnappings, ransom deliveries, a neophyte cop who would like to be Rajnikant. In short there is something for everyone and this one is a rollicking ride and lots of fun as we follow a good looking couple on the run for their life. There are many moments of homage to movies both HW and BW and there is lots of humor packed in.

I really like Abhay Deol - yet again he demonstrates his acting abilities as the ladies man wannabe and a poor sucker who gets caught in events out of his control. He is charming and can he act! Neha Dhupia was decent as the streetwalker and the rest of the cast did their job very well. This movie has a song in a bar and music in the background, but no real singing and dancing, and is another one of the new style BW films that are cropping up this year. A good one and worth a watch!
