Storyline

This is the short and entertaining story of a common man and his encounters with politics and corruption in his everyday life and what it takes for him to deal with such issues. The story revolves around the everyday life of a middle class family, with Akshay as a banker and part-time Ramleela actor, Aaseen his school teacher wife and his retired dad, Satish Kaushik, in their Kanpur house. Mugdha plays a role of a Paying Guest in their house, adding a streak of glamor to their life. Annu Kapur plays the role of a local hawaldar who talks in low tones but loud enough to stress the Kanpur family to their toes. Written by Monika

Must watch
18 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a great portrayal of corruption in India. I shows how common man gets entangled in it. Common man loses to the corrupt. It depicts life in a medium city.

It uses Bhopali accent, and Bundelkhandi dialect. Acting of every one is fantastic. Annu Kapoor excels as a greedy policeman. Vijay Raaj looks like a real thief. Mugdha Godse is overbearing, but tolerable.

Ramleela is entertaining and the characters funny. Akshaye Khanna and Shreya Sharan are typical middle class characters.

It is an off beat movie that is very close to reality. Overall, it is a must watch.
