Storyline

After their restaurant is shut down, two Mumbai-based room-mates, Benny Kutty and Babloo Charan Lathi, take new jobs in Mirage Hotel and Ghungroo Bar respectively. While Benny adjusts himself positively in his new get-up and surroundings, Babloo is not exactly thrilled about working in a sleazy dance bar with foul-mouthed squabbling women. Things do change after Benny finds out that the hotel is a front for drugs and prostitution; and Babloo finds out that the bar dancers have entered this profession to educate their respective families and siblings. Then things take a turn for the worse when a news reporter, Mrs. Tejwani, uses her clout to shut dance bars down; and Benny's supervisor, Negi, asks him to procure dancing girls for his exclusive clientèle.

Page 3 versus Chandni Bar
14 December 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Using "Benny and Babloo" the movie attempts to depict the sham around us. Two worlds - a magnificent outside but murky inside and the other, other way around. A posh five star hotel versus a ladies dance bar encompassing various lives and people into it.

۝ Kay Kay:: Perhaps the worst performance from him till date. Fans of Kay Kay are urged to stay away. Completely miscast or probably (for the first time) didn't get it quite right.

۝ Rajpal Yadav:: A tailor-made role for him and practically he sleep- walks in the role of Babloo.

۝ Rukhsar:: Has a good screen-presence and some good lines.

۝ Riya Sen:: Her segment attempts to explain the law of karma. Her performance could have been better.

۝ Shweta Tiwari:: The queen of small screen. Not enough screen time for her character to leave an impression.

۝ Anita Hassanandani:: Appears fake.

۝ Aasif Sheikh:: Loud

۝ Hiten Paintal:: The role is glorified special appearance.

Having too many sub-plots works against the flow of the narrative and a couple of them either not fleshed out properly or don't reach a logical conclusion. The basic premise of glorifying ladies dance bar is slightly past-sell-by-date. Instead of giving a balanced view of both sides, the plot attempts to be judgemental which makes the proceedings drift away from reality.

Taut writing could have transformed it into likes of "Page 3"
