Storyline

Owning several aquariums, fish-loving Mumbai-based Guru makes a living stealing cars, getting them to his garage-owner friend, Ganpat Gajanan Jagirdar, and re-selling them through an associate, Sharafat. One day he steals a Mercedez and takes it to Ganpat. They inspect the car, find a bag containing Rs.1 Crore, decide to keep it and improve their lifestyles. Ganpat 'refurbishes' the vehicle, and Sharafat finds a buyer in Suleman, who quite unfortunately, recognizes it, and informs the owner, Fauzdaar - a ruthless gangster and money-lender. Guru is located, interrogated brutally, and agrees to return the cash which is still stashed in the garage. When he goes there - Ganpat, who had hidden the cash, has met with an accident, is gravely injured, and requires immediate hospitalization. While recuperating, the doctor finds that he has completely lost his memory.

In the world of copy-cats.... here's to the original
5 September 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

When I first heard the title I presumed either to be a sleazy movie or yet another new-age cinema on its way to gather dust. Add "no publicity" to it and the perceptions sinks deeper than titanic. When I saw Anupam Kher & Kay Kay in credits, I decided to give it a go. And guess what - its a piece of jewel indeed.

۝ Kay Kay:: Attempts comedy and does it quite well. The role is well sketched and his passion for fish is well portrayed. At the risk of being repetitive "Wake up Bollywood - this guy is grossly under- utilised".

۝ Rimmi:: The character seems inspired from Kill Bill & predominantly Entrapment. She gets very good street-smart lines and uses Bengali quite effectively (Dhoom again?).

۝ Anupam Kher:: Spot on. And his role/ accent is a direct lift of his previous outing as Inspector Giridhar in "Hum".

۝ Dilip Phabhavalkar:: IMO - though he was good he could have been better especially when it came to amnesia.

۝ Chunky:: Good to see him in a suitable role(s) after a very long time. Both the characters though diverse as chalk-and-cheese he managed to give it a distinct flavour. Pity the role was short though.

۝ Manoj Pahwa & Sanjay Mishra:: As usual the Laurel & Hardy duo are dependable with good comic timing between them.

۝ Virendra Saxena, Yashpal Sharma & Vallabh Vyas:: Very short role but do their job quite well.

Barring a few sequences pertaining to the slip-between-the-cup-and-the- lip in the chase of the moolah, the rest is indeed very-very hatke. Quite safe to say director knows his job well.

Sankar City, the title might be deceptive but take my word - its original, its entertaining and the size is just about right. Go for it.
