A gripping ‘play’ that kept me at the edge of my seat.
The story is depicted well, with the set of a morose house, the lonliness of Aidanwala, the greed of Subhash and the helplessness of Mallika’s anger.
There is no point in stating the obvious, so I would not comment on the brilliant performances delivered in the movie by some of the finest actors of the industry. The surprise was Neha Dhupia, managing to make her presence felt among such ‘Maharathi’s.
Watch it for the love of theartre, for the plot and the performances!» Read full review

The movie is based on a very popular Gujarati play by the same name, written by Uttam Gada and produced and directed by Paresh Rawal.
The original title of the film was 'Chala Murari Murder Karne' but then the makers went back to the title of the play.
Also, Vikram Bhatt was initially signed as the director and then replaced by Shivam Nair.
Paresh Rawal wanted Amitabh Bachchan to play Naseeruddin Shah's role, but AB was not too keen to play a role with grey shades.
