Bear grip at Box-office
There is a housing society, somewhere in Mumbai, which represents India. To appeal to different regional sentiments, there are couples / families from different states / communities. There is a South Indian family, a Marathi family, a Sindhi family, a Muslim family, a Punjabi family shifted from Delhi and a single mother Binita Sen (Kirron Kher) who joins the group with her daughter Nitya (Tanushree Dutta) from Kolkata, after a divorce, trying to start a new life. While Nitya falls in love with Ritesh (Ankur Khanna) quite fast, Ankur is in love with Kirti (Masumeh), but Kirti loves money. Ok, today's consumerism breeds gold diggers. She craves for a rich guy, and finds one in Yash Mody a scion of a rich business family. Also, there are only two types of stock brokers. One is Firoz Sethna (Farooq Shaikh) and all other stupid ones.
Nitya joins Ritesh's call center. Kirti works at Costa coffee (visit the Juhu cafe!), where Yash Modi (Sudhanshu Pandey) walks in one day. Kirti teases Yash, Yash wooes her and calls off his business marriage and Kirti leaves poor Ankur at the altar. Nitya gets sloshed and finally gets Ritesh's attention. In the meantime, a kitty party group of all the women finds a new game called Investing for their timepass after cards, housie, etc...let's call it "Sen-Sex". CNBC is playing on all Tv's everywhere. Without any logic or consideration for time compared to movement of parallel storyline, the Index moves from 8,000 to 16,000 and beyond. In the mean time, there is emotion and tension attached with fall of the index and people's investment stuck...which has other important uses.
There are some funny situations / stereotypes, which are commonly used in Hindi movies to tickle your funny bone. Sindhi family with funny accent (Haang-Kaang, instead of Hong Kong, taak instead of talk, so on), Cute baby with stupid questions(cho chweet), Cute Sardar kids with Maruti toy car (used to trip unassuming people), newly married Tamil couple (not doing it), Bongs and their love for fish...
No great moments. You may watch real Saas-Bahu serials, instead of fictitious Kkyunki Saas bhu Kabhi Kanya Thi" if you love those types and definitely, you will watch CNBC live on Television. It'll be much more exciting, if you love Sensex. This fusion is unlikely to work.
The film says, love is more important than money. If you love your money, invest wisely. Same may apply for decision to watch the movie, if you give important to your time along with money, too. There were 7 people in the theater, when I watched it on Wednesday evening. And, other 3 couples didn't seem to mind the empty theater. ;-)
