Konkona Sen Sharma,
watch for scenery is all---insipid meaningless story
This is well filmed but boring story of a 3 way between 2 young men and a woman. The actors are pretty the scenery is pretty but there is nothing to the acting/story that achieves any feeling in the viewer. It seems like low budget banal formula fluff clearly aimed at the youth market dreaming of a glamorous big city.
I enjoyed it only as a travelogue of Mumbai and a way to get out of the here and now. It gets 2 stars for that...the cinematography is solidly competent too.
There just is no suspense or drama what so ever in this tale of the youthful fast lane in modern Mumbai. It is insipid none of the characters are memorable nor come to life---the story is shallow on details.. For instance one of the characters is a delivery runner for illicit drugs...but all you ever see him deliver is expensive Scotch to millionaires. A loolipop version of a thug--nothing too ugly or dangerous to mar things.
There are lots of good films from Bollywood choose another.
