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)

Did You Know?

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 »

Talks Mumbai. ♦ 74%
27 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Evidently a cult in the making, the makers have set the bar high with a very apt cast & engaging story-line.

Talking about how Mumbai behaves with its inhabitants, it links with three different stories that culminate into something grave, but eventually breakthrough. Focusing on native topics about the nightlife, the plot constantly introduces new characters. And the characters are totally deep in their portrayal. Rolling finely & softly for 150 minutes, Ek Chalis Ki Last Local never bores off and indeed entertains with references in crime, drama, love & songs.

Fantastic screenplay & lucid dreaming-sequences makes it a perfect Bollywood crime comedy. Neha Dhupia is hot & perfect, while Abhay Deol steals the show with his glamor & introspection.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended!

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? NO

Mouth-Kiss: Mild | Foreplay/Sex: No | Nudity: Mild | Smoking/Alcohol: Strong | Violence/Gore: Critical | Porn: No | Profanity: Very Strong
