Storyline

This is a dramatic chain of events in the most glamorous ,swinging era of Hindi films... the 1960s. It was a decade when film stars tasted success and carried their larger than life screen image on to real life with unbridled pomp and splendour. It was during this time that two ambitious films were made... Ujwal Nirmal Sheetal and Reena Mera Naam. The latter became a runaway hit while the former was struggling at the box office.

100 Minutes Of Pure Lack Of Imagination. ♦ 34%
16 May 2014 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

The girl is shown falling off the palace terrace four times throughout the film. Not to strain on how ridiculous is what happens after she falls, I will explain what went wrong with Reshammiya's latest venture cooked up to demean himself.

Starting off with an introduction of all the characters, the writer talks about many things at once: 60s' cinema, sex symbols, actresses, parties, competition between actors & directors, etc.. The plot follows the investigation of a girl's murder who falls from a terrace. The funny thing is that there is no detective/police involved in the investigation. I wonder if the viewer is the police here. Finally after talking loads of things about Reshammiya's character and the film fraternity, the story hangs to the night of the incident.

Himesh has a wooden face & it is high time he should accept it. Donning smart tux and suits won't help you. He can't act, cannot bring out expressions, I don't understand why he doesn't stick to music. Honey Singh was average. The 2 female débutantes are sex props; all they do is expose, girl-fight, envy and sleep around with male characters or talk about it. The dialogs are hopeless and inappropriate; I found 1 or 2 witty, though. The anachronistic setup is another example of lack of imagination. The whole film is supposed to happen in 1967 Bombay but looks nothing like it.

The second half advances to make it look like a whodunit but the unnecessary use of twists just nullifies the work. The climax scene at the court is the most ridiculous setup I have seen in a Bollywood film where a witness uses his eyes to detect the killer. Ah, the folly!

The story is so bad and ill-imagined, I start to wonder what all films were sampled to make this piece of extraordinary crass. The music is okay but what was the score of 1980's The Shining doing here! Supporting cast is nothing much to talk about and why would Ananth Mahadevan act in this film is beyond my understanding. But then again, why would he collaborate with Himesh and DIRECT the film for his script is just against the whole race of humanity.

BOTTOM LINE: Nothing much to experience here, except maybe the bitching, make-believe Tinseltown and few foreplay sequences. It only shows what we already know.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
