What happens when the reality of today is mixed with purely illogical comedy?
UTV Spotboy continues the tradition of picking up wild directors; this time with Indrajit Nattoji who comes up with one of the zaniest and more bizarre comedies of 2009. And he succeeds in primarily making the audiences laugh with his first Bollywood outing itself.
The movie is a refreshingly well written and directed comedy, with a lot of predictably unpredictable situations, full of spoofy humor, and powerhouse performances by the trio of Shreyas Talpade, Kay Kay Menon and Vijay Maurya. Sonia Bhatt (Mahie Gill) suits the role as the zany, bizarre SMS-us-yes-or-no reporter to the T, though people might not appreciate her in this one, as comparisons might arise to her eclectic performances in Dev.D and Gulaal.
Shehnaz Treasurywala looks pretty and acts fine, though she isn't given much of a role to display her acting prowess in particular (she has an infectious smile though). Shruti Seth as the Mother-India-wrist-on-forehead-type-Juliet hams, but her role is to ham, due to the simple fact that she plays this person who overacts with each situation. Shiv Pandit plays well, but his role isn't written well enough. But the best supporting role is that of Shreyas' mom, Bharti Achrekar.
In short, watch it for Shreyas Talpade, Kay Kay Menon, Vijay Maurya, or the whacky journey of Waghmare's Bajrangbali gun!
