An ensemble film set on the deserted highway between Mumbai and Goa and revolves around incidents that take place in one night to four sets of travelers. It is essentially a dark film, in which, each character is an anti-hero who has a dark mysterious interconnection between these stories that unfolds in a non-linear format. Each story varies from the other in its humor or less a similar motive - money. Written by
Hindi cinema should definitely make more black comedies. Even though 'The Film Emotional Atyachar' isn't without its share of downs, it's much better than most Hindi films I've seen this year, and certainly way better than the comedies. Ranvir Shorey and Vinay Patak have done some awesome movies together (e.g. 'Dasvidaniya','Mithya' etc) and some not so good ones like 'Aaja Nachle' but my expectations were high for this one because it wasn't some Yashraj junk.
The problem with 'The Film Emotional Atyachar' is in the first half. Although one can assume that the subplots are linked, they appear random. The story doesn't seem to have any direction and the non-linear telling is confusing sometimes.
The jokes work well and the film picks up in the second half. Where acting is concerned, Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Abhimanyu Singh, Anand Tiwari, Snehal Dabi and Ravi Kishan (he's becoming typecast) are excellent. Mohit Ahlawat and Kalki Koechlin are competent.
'The Film Emotional Atyachar' may not be the best in Hindi comedy but it's worth a one-time watch and has enough to make one laugh.
