The story revolves around the plan to look for a secret hidden stash of gold in an age-old building. A group of seven people partake in the robbery headed by Pappi. All the planning, a fake murder and the involvement of Inspector Tezpal – in the chaotic streets of Chandni Chowk is all you need to know about the movie. Will these seven goons finally get their hands on the gold?
The film went through 90 cuts as CBFC couldn’t stand the amount of vulgarity and profanity in the movie.
What to Anticipate:
When you have the trio of brilliant actors like Manoj Vajpayee, Kay Kay Menon and Vijay Raaz, one expects some intense acting paralleled with an astute sense of humor. But the movie fails to do so and so their acting. The cameo by Anupam Kher, playing an old nitwit, remains an unimportant segment of the movie. The acting of Annu Kapoor shall disappoint you too.
The movie does have its moments of laughter and comic relief in its naming of characters, the cat and mouse chase of Inspector Tezpal and the solving of mystery. But, It fails to make a connection. One may try laughing at the shrewd, vulgar language used in the movie. But, when one finds that the entire movie has been painted with the same stuff.. one takes distaste to it.
The ending comes surprising and breaks its ‘what little bit of comedy’, the movie had subjected. The element of God, the rise of conscience works well as a morale.. but it, most certainly, leads the movie straight down to hell.
And not just that, the ending and may be not just the ending.. the movie keeps on lagging and seems stretched more than its limits.
It comes up to its marks in its comparison to Delhi Belly – abusive language, chaotic streets of Chandni Chowk, a disruptive ending – all bound together by unimpressive acting.
