NOT A REVIEW - Just excited about seeing this assembly of talent on screen together.

Kay Kay Menon, Vinay Pathak, and Rajat Kapoor! Just these names make me want to watch the movie right now! Add to the medley Sandhya Mridul and Sonali Kulkarni. I know, these women don’t necessarily have only good projects associated with their names, but nevertheless, we know they can act well if given a chance.

If that were not enough, the promos look interesting and the passion with which it was made is promising. In the director, Arindam Nandy's words from his post on Passion For Cinema

And the process began…of writing and re-writing…all on holidays and after my Calcutta advertising agency office hours late in the night. It seemed like a malaise that was haunting me every moment.

I am sure, all movies, good, bad or evil go through this process and all directors have a deep passion towards their product. But, not all engage the audience. This one looks like it has its ingredients right. Whether it tastes good too, we'll know soon enough. Right now, my motto is -

"clean slate, clean slate, clean slate....neutral expecataions, neutral expectations, neutral expectaions"
