A pleasant surprise
17 November 2008 | by sorwar-ahmedSee all my reviews

I must say if I had seen the cover of this film and saw Rajpal Yadav and Ritupama Sengupta as the leading cast, I would have avoided the movie altogether. Luckily I was really bored and this film was showing on Star Gold, there was nothing else on so I thought I'll give it a go.

I was pleasantly surprised, from the first moment when Nasiruddin Shah was doing the commentary, I couldn't look away.

Although, Rajpal Yadav deosn't have the qualities of our megastars in terms of looks, dancing ability and fighting, he was the perfect guy for this role. His performance was great, his facial expression reflected his feelings perfectly.

His opposite, Ritupama Sengupta, also provided a great performance. The realism was great and I'm sure like myself audiences will be able to relate to some aspects of the story.

The best thing about it was I genuinely connected with the characters and was wishing Rajpal to do the right thing.

You will not be disappointed. Watch it.
