Madhavi is a newspaper journalist in Mumbai whose task is to fill the Page 3 column. Her job consists of attending parties among the socialite and small-time celebrity circle and reporting on it. Her roommates are Pearl, an air-hostess who wants to marry a rich man and settle down to a life of comfort; and Gayatri, a struggling actress. Gayatri is seduced by a leading married actor Rohit Kumar. When she finds out that she is pregnant, he advises her to abort the baby. Dejected, Gayatri tries to commit suicide but Madhavi and Pearl save her. She loses the baby and leaves Mumbai. Madhavi's job of interacting with shallow high-society people is depressing her. She wants to do some substantial reporting for a change, so she is assigned to the Crime beat alongwith veteran reporter Vinayak Mane.Written by
Seen the film and liked it. The director did a neat job in depicting the true picture of a separate world that exists in the Indian glamour world and the unignorable role of the press. Also shows how easy it is to shoot to stardom if you can stash your (and other's) pockets with cash. There's nothing money can't buy -- even acceptability. Pros -- 1. The story
2. The pace at which the events take place -- there is no drag.
3. Pointing out the true message -- "Crime Reporting is true journalism, Page3 is nothing but entertainment".
4. Echoing the true message -- that we all have to "adjust" to the "system".
5. Chauffeurs are not fools.
Cons -- 1. Konkona SenSharma. She was too bland. Seemed to merely utter the lines she was asked to. Failure to infuse life into the role. Even though the role was absolutely cut out for Karishma Kapoor, I understand the director was aiming for a low star cast movie. Isha Kopikar(!) could have done a better job I guess -- adding a bit of glamour (for Page 3) and character too.
