Akshat Verma is famous for his dark humor and mad plot. After giving Delhi Belly as a writer, returns as a writer-director for this film, starring Saif Ali Khan, Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, etc.

The film is all about what happened on that one night. Three parallel stories have been running in a city on the same night. There is no connection between them. But the screenplay has been written very well that we feel connected towards all of them from the very first scene of each stories.

Though, I believe that the most funny and fast paced story is the one between Vijay Raaz and Deepak Dobriyal. These two guys have chatted brilliantly about their plans and dreams in the most hilarious way. I want to thank CBFC for not deleting or muting any cuss words from this film, so that we can able to enjoy it in right manner. Without these words, What could Vijay Raaz do! LOL.

Kunaal Roy Kapoor and Shobhita Dhulipala with other two actors are there to just give us an idea what could happen in a party. Also, the other factor, which you will find out while watching, is bit overly handled according to me. That's the one thing I didn't like in this film.

The main part, or my favorite, is of Saif Ali Khan's! He has played an absolutely new character on screen. I wish I could have given chance...But, never mind! Saif has done his job superbly. Kudos to the thinker who thought the imagination and created the visuals of Saif's character. These are the highlights of the film. Isha Talwar is sweet and beautiful in her short role. Akshay Oberoi gives full support to his on screen brother Saif. By far, this story is the main part, (amm yes you got it right), of this film Kaalakaandi.

Bollywood is changing day by day. This is one of the changes. Many would not like the ending scene, but, I completely laughed out loud on that. Because you have to remember that this is just a mad, crude, creepy film. I am sure if you invest your time into this, you definitely forget all your problems. In fact, you'll forget your real life too and get trapped into this mad world! It is different from Delhi Belly. Humor is less here. Life and death and Karma... in an adult movie, which I think is only for youngsters. After watching this, I would say: Fuck the rest, Let the Karma do the Best! Enjoy!
