Storyline

After having spent his entire life in Bombay's Dharavi slums, Digamber feels it is time that he takes steps to improve his lifestyle. He, along with two other slum-dwellers, plot to kidnap the only son (Shravan) of a wealthy businessman, Kishore Mehta. Things do not go as planned as one of their partners gets hospitalized when he gets a reaction from locally brewed alcohol. Since this plot involves three males, Avinash, a deaf, but dare-devil motorcycle rider is recruited. Things do not go quite as planned, as only Digamber and Avinash are available to carry out the abduction. To make matters worse, they find out that the wrong boy (Daddu) has been abducted, who happens to be the illegitimate son of Assistant Commissioner of Police, S.P. Rao. So the heat is now on the Digamber and Avinash, who must somehow find a way to get out of this mess - alive and in one piece. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fun, wacky film
26 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Don't expect too much out of this film. It's nice to see a simple comedy after all the intense movies that have been coming out in 2005. I would probably put this movie into the genre of Hera Pheri and Hungama. Although not nearly as great as those two, Mumbai Express is another comedy of mistaken identities that most definitely has its share of hilarious scenes and dialogues. Kamal Hassan, the lady that played his sister, and Om Puri all gave wonderful performances. Manisha Koirala was OK. There's not a whole lot to the story. It's just full of fun-filled humor. The movie is great to loosen up on a Friday night after a long week.
