Nice idea to convert real life incident into a movie, but it’s the narrative and lack of depth on the subject that play the killers here.
Sandip (Manoj Bajpai) runs a successful advertising agency in Delhi. He has a lovely wife Priya (Hrishita Bhatt) and assistants Murali (Vijay Raaz) and Ronnie (Nitin Arora) to support him all the way. All seems fine until one day, when his office is sealed by the MCD authorities under the sealing drive in the city, and that too without notice. Sandip tries to use political influence, which doesn’t work out. Bakshi Jugaadu (Sanjay Mishra) offers help and gets him a shoddy place (at high cost) to relocate his temporary office. But all this affects his clientele.
Meanwhile Murali and Ronnie try alternate means to reach the commissioner Gupta (Govind Namdeo), but they along with Sandip are tricked by Gupta and his look-alike brother Ganesh Gupta. Sandip’s staff also quits. How he assembles a new qualified staff and wins his fight against the corrupt officers forms the rest of the story…
The execution of such a serious issue is tacky and almost all the performers have taken it for granted. It’s neither a comedy nor tragedy and falls well short of expectations.
Performances: Manoj Bajpai and Hrishita Bhatt are able performers but are thoroughly constrained by the ill-written roles. Need to concentrate on their choice of roles, and should not grab everything that’s coming the way. Vijay Raaz, Sanjay Mishra, Mushtaq Khan, Govind Namdeo pass the muster. Nitin Arora is irritating.
Music: Sachin Gupta’s compositions under a team of lyricists are nothing to rave about.
