Storyline

The jobs of "Sholay" obsessed Deep and Rishi are on the line with their advertising firm if they do not come up with a one-liner for Mr. Roy's condoms. While Deep resides with his pregnant wife, Shanti, and a daughter, Muskaan; Rishi has separated from his wife, Nicki, and depends on Shanti for meals, apprehending a bitter divorce. When the time comes close to delivering her child, Shanti's mom moves in them temporarily, much to the chagrin of Deep. Shanti would like Nicki and Rishi to meet and patch-up their differences, however, Rishi knows that Nicki is having an affair with her attorney, and is not inclined in this direction. The main obsession for Deep and Rishi is Bollywood's music maestro, Rahul Dev Burman; and 'Jhankaar Beats' a contest they had competed to win in vain. With the deadline for Mr. Roy's one-liner closing in, Rishi gets an offer to work in America, jeopardizing any chance the group may have for competing in the upcoming 'Jhankaar Beats'.

Good time pass
31 January 2005 | by phaneendrakumarSee all my reviews

This is a good movie for the Indian standards. Obviously, Ghosh knows what he's making and how he has to make it!! The comedy is very natural and brilliantly done by all characters. Rahul Bose being exceptional. He is one very rare combination, who can cater both art and commercial movies. Sanjay Suri did a fair job. Shyan Munshi that models can also act.

Music is good. It is something to die for and a tribute to R.D. Burman.

The script of the film is so fresh.

Hope movies like this will become the benchmarks in Bollywood, where Subhash Ghai is great with his Kisna.
