Storyline

After a bitter divorce from her Kolkata-based husband, Binita Sen re-locates to live in Modern Society, Navi Mumbai, along with her resentful daughter, Nitya.

As ordinary and disappointing as its namesakes (especially sensex)..
25 September 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

First thing that occurs to you about this movie is maybe that it was released 6 months to late.

Because the saas's and the bahu's are here to stay but tell anyone to invest in the sensex now and you can consider yourself lucky if you get away with only a shouting.

In fact everything about this movie seems a bit off..

The saas bahu has been parodied so many times especially thanks to 20 comedy shows on TV that its lost almost all its charm.

The politically correct semi-urban/middle class society with its mix of Muslim, punjabi, bengali etc etc stereotypes (DONT GET ME WRONG I LOVE STEREOTYPES AND I MAY HAVE EVEN LAUGHED ON ONE OR MAYBE 2 JOKES BUT AS A PRACTITIONER OF RACIST HUMOUR MYSELF I KNOW WHEN SUCH HUMOUR IS WELL BELOW PAR)....is actually well beyond its sell by date (probably in the 90s).

The cast is a mix of has beens, will be, or plain forgettable people there is talent (ill discuss that later), most of it lost in the sea or mediocrity.

Offbeat films is one thing, such films usually pride themselves on their subtle social themes,real life themes etc etc but this movie FITS THE STEROTYPE OF THE OFFBEAT FILM TO THE HILT....

Everything is so predictable and so uni-dimensional its scary even those who have shone in their roles have uni dimensional characters.

There are a few songs and the lesser said the better.

Enough to drag this movie till 4 now the good parts.

As said by everyone this movie belongs to Faroukh Shaikh (people say Kiron Kher too,but her role just to uni-dimensional and she is talented to be given credit for this), HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO BRINGS SOME MEASURE OF HUMOUR TO THIS MOVIE AND ALMOST ANY GOOD SCENE IN THE MOVIE INVOLVES HIM.

The others such as Dubey, Kher and other actors do a decent job of hamming/portraying what stereotypical one dimensional characters they have to play ENSURING THAT THE ACTING/ROLES NEVER REALLY IRRIRATE YOU.People with any less talent would have made this really torturous.

Masumeh looked sizzing for a while before even she gets on your nerves, Tanushree has miles to go, maybe she should wear much lesser clothes to distract us from her ordinary acting.

The only brilliant moments for me (although it may be a personal thing) was the way they captured the euphoria of the sensex climbing maybe if they had modified the movie as a satire of the market itself instead of the ending it showed this could have been much better.

In whole an ordinary movie that has a few good moments inter-spaced with mostly ordinary below par moments but never leaves you feeling bored.

Watch only with only low expectations, this movie promises much more than it delivers.

-s one-dimensional, stereotypical, nothing new, weak songs, script wastes the potential.

=/-s masumeh sizzles initially then...., the rest of the actors they showed potential but maybe the roles were to limiting.

+s FAROUKH SHAIKH, THE SENSEX EUPHORIA.

total 5/10 (if i don't get bored i usually give the movie at least a 5 or 6 but i don't want to set the wrong expectations especially since the Sensex Euphoria scenes may only be my personal favourite).
