Storyline

Delhi-based fellow-collegians-cum-hostelers, Sanjay Mishra, and Apurv, challenge each other to win the University elections and sleep with three different girls respectively before the election results. While Sanjay sets out to canvas his candidacy, often with violence, against his opponents, Rajesh Solanki and Bunty Nagaar; nonchalant Apurv picks on Vaishali, a prostitute; cute and adorable high school student, Kintu; and is on the look out for a third girl. The question is will Apurv be able to find a third girl in time; and will Sanjay make a mark as the President of the Delhi University Students' Union? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A movie closed to reality
7 October 2007 | by ronak_15See all my reviews

The movie is well knit up to some extent and portrays the real life a student lives in modern Indian culture.

The best thing I liked about the movie is the end and the conclusions driven.

If you look into the acting perspective, Imam shah who is the son of naserrudin shah and ratna pathak shah has done a very good job and he really suites the character in the movie.

Shreyas talpade, is an awesome actor, no doubt about it. The new comer girls have done a good job up to some extent since they did not have a wholesome role in the movie but they supported the movie and it would not have been as good as it is with them.

Nikita Anand, Miss India Universe 2003 I think is casted in a bollywood movie for the first time ...also provides an added feature of the real life situation and overall everybody fit into their characters.

But finally I would like to tell you that Imam Shah has enough potential as his father has....and would succeed in winning the audience .....may be not in this movie but his movies to come.

The only negative point about this movie would be the this is not a family movie or a movie that can be watched by an age group older than 30 but certainly the young chaps of India....especially the college students will like this movie and appreciate it. There is some vulgar language in the movie(not much a few) but i think that was needed because that would only portray the trueness of the young Indian society.

Overall something to learn from this movie. So watch once so that you wont regret .....:)
