Storyline

99 is an original story inspired by real events - well, very liberally inspired - it is more fiction than fact. It is the story of two men in two cities, who are bound by a common feeling of always being stuck at '99'. They never seem to make it to a 'century' - in life. It is an unpredictable and hilarious ride spread over two cities with colorful characters, unbelievable circumstances, small-time crooks, big-time conspiracies, fateful car crashes, a briefcase full of money... and a historical controversy brewing in the background!

Goofs

99 is set in the year 1999 and early 2000. CNG auto-rickshaws were introduced in Delhi around 2001-2002. But the movie still shows the green three-wheelers (though not the CNG label on them). See more »

One of the best this year!
16 May 2009 | by (Bangalore) – See all my reviews

When you have an original idea and the execution is professional and care is taken to give the audience something to laugh or ponder or get thrilled, you have a top notch entertainer. And 99 for me is one of the best this year and possibley in the last few years. And to add to this the cast hit bulls yes. Even though the cast is not attractive on paper because of the star crazy industry that we are unfortunately part of; once you see the film you will agree with me that the casting was perfect; and every cast person deliver what they were meant for.

OK to summarise 99 I will say it is a terrific thriller and an excellent comedy. And if you think about it this combination of thriller and comedy is rare and that is exactly why I think this is one of the best Hindi films I have seen. I recommend hundred percent! Thank you
