A mistaken delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects a young housewife to an older man in the dusk of his life as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox.
The lives of a group of people, who live in Mumbai are told in this tale, which revolves around Rahul - who occupies an apartment owned by his uncle, and lets rich and influential people use it for their personal sexual past-times. An ignored and angry young wife, Shikha falls into the arms of a young man named Akash, who wants to be an actor for Indian movies; then there is Shikha's sister, Shruti, who is having an affair with a man named Monty; and finally there is Shikha's teacher, Shivani, who is romancing Amol. Things get complicated when Rahul finds out that Neha, who is his girlfriend, is using this very apartment to meet with Ranjeet, who is Shikha's husband.Written by

i just came back after seeing the movie and couldn't help writing something (good) about it. after a series of disappointing Hindi and a few English (spiderman 3)this one was totally refreshing. but as i logged on to the site i saw someone saying that it seemed like a half hearted effort to him.
firstly, he seemed to have been too influenced with the sharman joshi n the apartment bit. that was only a small part of the film n not the main story. i agree to his viewpoint that some of these stories did seem familiar and seen before but i would say that they were handled and presented in a much better way in this movie.
secondly, most of the Indian directors fail to manage parallel stories like this one but it's been done sensitively here. the movie has it's weak points too, but VERY few. all the characters were well defined, no extra footage to anyone in particular, the story has a few unpredictable sequences and YES the horse on the roads of mumbai was dramatic but haven't we grown up seeing just all of this in most of the other Hindi movies. at least it was done in a more fun way.
not to mention that konkona was immense! (does she ever do any bad movies???) irrfan khan was fantastic, shilpa shetty wasn't too bad as well. i really liked gangster and unlike the other first-time-wonder directors, anurag basu does a fantastic job the second time around.
it's totally watchable and love irfan n konkona's chemistry!!!
