A very different experience
19 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is quite different and handled very uniquely. The theme, storyline and everything about this movie is so refreshingly new that you are charmed by these. The entire movie is a laugh riot and the acting by the main character Bharat Bhushan ( Vinay Pathak )is just exhilarating. Others including Rajat kapoor, Milind Soman and Sarika have done very well.

The movie is about the entire stretch of a night and how a man pays for his mischief that he intended to play on others. A very light hearted comedy and very enjoyable.

Then why just 6 stars ? Well reading through some others reviews on this site I find that this movie is a copy of the french movie "Dinner Games" . To verify this I checked on the plot of the original and I found that indeed it is true. This requires that the director should acknowledge this fact in the titles but I don't remember having seen that in the movie titles.

Well apart from this fact ( though a very embarrassing one ) the movie's direction is flawless and the story is very humorous.
