wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

An interesting premise, an interesting narrative style loses fizz due to lack of dynamism in overall execution.

Plot Summary

Three men lose money in a scam. They want revenge. But its not that easy now, is it?

What Worked

  • The way a narrator announces the disclaimers and the opening credits - nice that something different is tried.
  • Sonali Khare's (Suneela) subtle hints of seduction when she is trying to befriend the bank manager.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The lighting throughout the movie. The focus was too harsh. Especially, the night scenes were too brightly lit.
  • The whole hunt for the right bank manager - unnecessarily over-dramatised.
  • Why does Suneela hold Shekhar at gunpoint when minutes later she is going to hand the gun over to him?
  • Why do they have to go to a Pune bank?
  • The climax!
