it seems the story is heavily inspired from a French movie (doesnt annoy me; we’re hardly an innovative tribe) and that very fact has drawing lots of flaks from the eminent critics (again that’s hardly surprising). see these critics are like those testers whose focus is solely upon finding defects. But as a consumer, interested only in the take-away experience, who cares to find the technical / strategical flaws? leave them to the movie jurors to decide for the awards.
So, the movie works for me. for two simple reasons: a. it lets me laugh a lot without the cheap treatment of double-meaning jokes and stupid caricatures (am i sounding a bit intellectual here ?) and b. engaging plot-outline and the stupendous performance of Vinay Pathak, who does full justice to the title giving a hair-raising experience to his tormentor in the film (Rajat Kappor), as well the audience who spilled the pop-corns everywhere.
