Storyline

Inspired by the incredible true story of Lucky Singh, an extremely charismatic and fearless confidence man and thief who socialized with the rich, famous and influential of Delhi society and then proceeded to rob them blind. He was the bête noire of the police and had stolen millions by the time he was caught. A modern day Robin Hood with a twist, he robbed both the rich and the poor without prejudice. Nothing was too big nor was anything too insignificant to escape his attention. The film opens with his trial and charts his rise from the projects of crime ridden suburban Delhi to the very heart of the corridors of power. Along the way he makes lifelong friends, falls in love an manages to outwit the entire law and order machinery. Written by Anonymous

a realistic & sarcastic movie in best of a kind !!!

I read ab't Dibakar Banerjee saying "there is always an extra-ordinary story in every ordinary life". So he has proved in this movie again. A simple character, no big-star cast n no foreign-location type shooting. Yet you will like it and like a music video you might end up even watching it again. why ??? Because it will touch your heart by showing you a mirror. By just showing you how cheap we actually are? How we divide people on class, money, posh colony, car and cloths ??? This was near perfectly depicted by Paresh Rawal.The ace in the movie is : 1. dialogs 2. Abhay Deol's acting 3. Screen play (some scenes were really heart warming)

Downside: 1 it lacked a flow after interval but here Abhay deol's acting picked it up.

comparing it to "Khosla ka ghosla" i'll say it's not that good but it held a larger dimension of human emotions. So for me it was equally heart touching. Go for it !!! Not to laugh on the thief but to laugh on this metro society !!!!
