Storyline

After Bade falls out of favor of Member of Parliament, Verma, he is arrested, held in a cell without any trial, and is humiliated and beaten everyday. His brother Chhotte and others conspire to secure his release by kidnapping Verma's to-be son-in-law, Shyam Singhania. Things do not go exactly as planned and Priti, Shyam's girlfriend, also gets abducted. In order to ensure Shyam's safety, she agrees to liaise between Verma and the gangsters - not knowing that she has an admirer who will do anything for her. She meets with Shyam's father as well as Verma but may end up endangering everyone's lives especially after Verma makes it clear that he will not negotiate Bade's release under any circumstance.

Awesome
4 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Another gr8 flick by Sudhir Mishra. The movie has every thing for which any audience can look for. Cast is amazing, Acting is superb and direction is awesome . This movie can be learning for the other directors that how to make comedy without being ridiculous.The plot is gripping throughout the movie except initial context/character building is bit lengthy.The use of flashback is very innovative it will make u to appreciate the artistry the director used.Uses of dialects are superb. YSZ is a testimony of Mishra's craftsmanship as a writer and director. With its many unpredictable twists and twirls and a climax that some might take with a pinch of salt, This movie is a delightfully different film that attempts to break all set formulas and leave you with a smile on the face in the end.Worth watching.
