Films about Bunch of friends, having out together, moving around and then suddenly stumbling upon something have been done to the dozen in Bollywood now. Toss is one such story with a few debutants at its helm. It remains to be seen whether it does anything different though.
Starting with a group of friends who are returning from a fun n frolic vacation, the plot moves onto the mystery angle where they happen to chance upon a hidden treasure. All of them start dreaming big & making plans as to what they would do with their share of fortune. However, they are unaware that the owner of that fortune as well as the cops are behind them. Also, they fail to realise that their own friends who are consumed by greed are after each other to snatch the other person’s share of booty. The film deals with how & who survives this ordeal.
Though the concept is nice & could be used as a moral lesson for today’s youngsters, it just falls short of being so. The script as well as the screenplay fail the director who being a debutant leaves a lot to be desired in the execution department. His being a debutant worsens matters more. Technically, the film is average, with a few camera angles used effectively. Music is nothing to boast about, whereas the Background score is much more effective.
Everybody from the cast manages a decent performance, namely Prashant Raj who is a notch higher followed by Ashmit Patel & Aarti Chhabria who surprisingly perform better than they have in the past. Mahesh Manjrekar, Sushant Singh, Rajpal Yadav & Vijay Raaz don’t really seem to add much to this project which is already short on substance.
So bol meri “Filmi Khopdi” is film mein kitna hain dum ?
Bilkul dum nahi hai, it’s completely avoidable. In the spate of releases this week, Toss has nothing outstanding to offer, which would make it recommendable.
