Not bad

I think this is the first attempt at a comedy with no males in the starcast. I thought the movie was pretty funny. Sushmita does much better job at acting than Manisha. However, both of them, especially Manisha, overacted. If something funny happened, they would laugh themselves inside-out, and you would be like, "Ok, shut up now. It's not that funny." It is interesting how just a blackmail can take the lives of innocent people. The story does a good job of bringing out comedy in a storyline involving blackmail and murder. There are also a couple edge-of-the-seat, suspenseful scenes that are very well executed. The dance club song and the remix melody are cool, foot-tapping tracks.
