Toss - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

If a film about lost money is 2.5 hours long, all you want yell is "show me the money…already!" Greed and deceit replace friendships in this thriller in quite an inhumane fashion.

Plot Summary

5 friends chance upon loads of cash. Thus follows the inevitable deceit, betrayal, and exposure of the dark side in every human.

What Worked

  • The focus on Gandhiji's photo on the currency notes.

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 shots through the key hole. Very gimmicky.
  • Rain trying to create pathos for the character - didn't that stop working like ages ago?
  • How come Sammy (Prashant Raj) doesn't realize that he has hurt his toe?
  • And could it be any easier for people to be found by their car's partial number plate in all of Goa? How did they even know which city and where in the city to start?
  • Is no one on the road bothered when a car hits a human being?
  • An 8-10 year old scans the entire house in less than a few minutes?!

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • Why was only one person counting all the notes?
  • How does Sammy (Prashant Sachdev) see anything at all from the rear view mirror of his car with that huge picture on the rear glass?
  • How does the Sada's (Hardik Sangani's) video game work while he is holding it out in the rain?
