Pulp Fiction in Mumbai?
7 May 2007 | by HeadleyLamarrSee all my reviews

Punit (Arshad Warsi) is a copywriter for an ad agency in Mumbai, has a falling out with his cop girlfriend Agni (Sandhya Mridul), ends up sleeping on the street and saves the life of an underworld bad guy Vishnu (Prashant Narayanan). A strange friendship develops between Punit and Vishnu that is hard for Vishnu's boss Ganpat and his arch nemesis Gangu-Tai to comprehend. A band of drinking Sikhs, Mahima Chaudhary (as herself), a newspaper reading trio, and several singers all play a part in the story, although some merely to confuse the deliberately zig zag narrative. Punit wants to get out of Mumbai and retire to Nainital. His dream becomes real in a most unusual way! The movie has excellent performances by Arshad and Prashant, the female Don is hilarious, Sandhya Mridul is good, the usual gang of goons do their job well, but for me the show stealers are the paggad wearing boys who shake it up in a night club! I wanted to get up and dance with them. The story is inspired by many a Tarantino, Coen Brothers film and happily gives them due credit!

The music is excellent and gave rise to two great singing careers, Kailash Kher and Rabbi Shergill. The songs are lovely but I love that My name is .. Bhangra number, wacky and toe tapping good. The film is unusual, sustains interest throughout and is worth a watch.
