This energetic black comedy (or drama with a sense of humour) turns a contemporary eye on something that is taken too much for granted in Indian cities, especially Mumbai - private space. It's about the clash between a stockbroker who is not allowed to sleep at night and a small-time trader who won't let him (as the secretary of the building society they live in). This seemingly trivial, even laughable, problem eventually snowballs into disasters for both of them and their families, while unspooling the attitudes of people around them. A very real but highly entertaining portrait of urban India. Written by
The film script was written in 2001 and took seven years to see the light of day. Several directors and actors including Pankaj Kapur, Konkona Sen Sharma and Saif Ali Khan (actors) and 'Rajit Kapur' (director) were associated but still the film didn't find a producer. It was eventually made on a very small budget. See more »
I knew about the premise of the movie - about a stock broker being unable to sleep well in the night due to the building security guy's whistling through the night. I wasn't sure how one could make a 2 hour movie on that. Jaideep succeeds to an extent with the fairly simple theme. There are a few scenes which are really funny and keep the movie going on and you engaged with the proceedings. The constant confrontation of Sushant and the watchman does get a bit repetitive after a while. However, a fairly decent watch - some good performances (Vrajesh Hirjee is tolerable and actually likable for a change to give you an idea), some good music by Indian Ocean though the songs do not go with the mood of the movie, a few scenes with good laughs - not bad for a Sunday afternoon watch.
