Storyline

Bollywood's assistant director and aspiring writer, Shekhar Giriraj, permits a friend, Rajesh Kumar, to move in with him in his Chawl room, after the later is fired by Film Director, Ghosh. Shortly thereafter Shekhar quits his job, writes a movie script, and accepts an advance from V.C. Chhadha. He starts recruiting staff for this project, but finds his life shattered when his work is plagiarized by Rajesh; his sweetheart, Mansi, a reigning Bollywood actress, leaves her abusive and demanding family, and publicly declares that she will be moving in with him. Unemployed, forced to marry Mansi, he becomes neglectful, alcoholic, and goes on a road of self-destruction, compelling Mansi to leave him. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not even up to the minimum mark
22 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Quite a disappointment.

The only thing that kept me in cinema hall till end of the movie is Amrita Rao. She looked different and good too. Better performance.

OK story. Not great music.

Apart from that its low quality work, used up comedy and not so great performance. Don't want to spend much time writing this. Its just not worth it.

In simple terms, its waste of your money, your time, your efforts going to cinema hall and simply waste of cinema reel.

Like 'modistreet' said - save your money, buy yourself a good lunch.
