    “Sanju Baba hai to dekhna to padega”

    Whenever a film is made with keeping in mind the current topics viewers’ curiosity raises high. Saurabh Kabra brings us a film made on such current and untouched subject “E.M.I”. But along with good concept or current subject one does need entertainment value along with good performance for making a good film. So, Does ‘E.M.I’ have the above said elements ? Let’s find out…

    “E.M.I” is a story of Sattar Bhai [Sanjay Dutt], who along with his sidekicks [Manoj Joshi, Snehal Dhabhi, Etc] runs a Bank’s money recovery agency. Like lots of other Defaulters he gets to deal on personal level with his latest’s Defaulters list consisting of Prerna [Urmila Matondkar], a widow who had taken loan to get her husbands insurance claim matter get solved. Ryan [Arjun Rampal], a D.J who loves to live his life with style and his love[Mallaika Arora] but on the cost of loads of Credit cards. Anil [Aashish] & Shilpa [Neha], who have taken loads of loan to start their newly married life. Last but not the least Chandrakant Desai [Kulbhushan Kharbanda], a senior citizen who has taken a loan for his son’s abroad studies. They all due to some reason fail to pay their latest E.M.I which leads to their interaction with Sattar Bhai. How does Sattar Bhai deal with all of them is what to watch out for.

    Story and Concept is new and untouched, which needs to be applauded but sadly the screenplay does not work as required. It fails miserable in the first half while establishing the characters. But thanks to Sanjay dutt{who we miss in the first half] and his one liners dialogs the screenplay lifts up in the second half. Pace too is a big worry especially in the first half, it does improve in the second half. But this movie badly needs some good editing to make it crispy. Camera work is good and goes with the mood of the film.

    Music is ok, but nothing to take home. If songs were not part of this subject , it would have worked out more in favor of this movie. Though Arjun-Mallaika & Sanjay-Urmila are visual treat.
    Saurabh Kabra deserves a big pat for taking such untouched and unusual subject but sadly fails to do justice to it. We can see his inconsistency in first half and also going hay way at plenty of places. If he had made the pace faster and movie bit tighter the end product could had been better.

    Arjun Rampal and Urmila looked great and have essayed their role with total satisfaction. Urmila looked stunning in few scenes. Aashish and Neha were totally out of place and dint suit the character. Mallaika, Kulbhushan and Snehal dhabi has done proper justice to their role. Manoj Joshi gives a superb performance in his minuscule role. But the movie belongs to Sanjay Dutt who has done a great job and lifts the whole movie with his charm.

    So bol meri “Filmi Khopdi” is film mein kitna hai dum ?

    Dum hain acha khaasa dum hain, but weak first half and inconsistent screenplay makes it an average flick. Thanks to the unusual subject, good performance one does feel entertained in this film. And besides all this when its Sanjay Dutt essaying a good role, fir to picture dekhna hi padega.

    Ratings : 2.75/5
