Storyline

Born in West Bengal, Subhrojeet Chakraborty re-locates to Mumbai, to work with Lalaji Telefilms as a Creative Head Director. He meets with the Executive Director, Anekta Kapoor, and after going through various formalities - including having his Kundali/Astrological Chart approved - he is hired and instructed to increase the firm's TRP's with a good day-time soap. With all ideas already being telecast by Ekta Kapoor and Balaji Telefilms, he is at a loss and encounters writers' block. This issue resolves itself after he meets with his neighbor, Sumana Roy Chowdhury, and decides to write a story about the two of them. His work is accepted, initial episodes are telecast, and the ratings do surge upwards - but not for long - as soon Sumana finds out, confronts him, the duo find they are attracted to each other and get married. The question remains: with the two getting married, how will the show and the remainder of the episodes proceed? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

20 April 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well this movie retains the essence it's title, it's totally idiotic. Never mind the light reference to someone in special in the Indian TV world. Well Hrishitaa proves herself once again that though she has a funny bone but no glamor or acting capability as such. When Sushant Singh first came in the scenario he showed a lots of promise but I guess he has lost the edge, reminds me of Irfaan Pathan (the cricketer :P). And what with the awful accent of his trying to mimic someone! Well Surendra Pal as himself (or not didn't get it though) was cool addition I would say. The side kicks Upasna Singh and Milind Gunaji did there part well. With a special mention to Upasna, she is like lady Johny Leven, these days no movie is complete without her. She seems to fill the place left by Tuntuni as a consistent female comedian. Anyways it was good past time. Low budget film with low budget stars did keep its promise as a low budget time pass comedy.

PS: The second half is better plotted than the first.
