Plot:  Ranvir Shorey is an easy going Mumbai wala, who has been trying to complete his engineering degree for the past ten years. One night he meets drunken Mallika Sherawat Mallika Sherawat is a glamorous Model turned bold >> Read More... Mallika Sherawat in a railway station and falls head over heels in love with her. On the other hand, Mallika just uses him as a rodent. Mallika, who is going through a decisive point in her life gets happiness by making Ranvir do absurd and silly things. Initially, Ranvir is canny about Mallika, but then he slowly starts to adjust and also understands her feelings. Mallika writes mutilated movie scripts and makesRanvir walk to several production houses to sell them. All of a sudden this quirky film turns into a serious one by the narration of Mallika’s bad flashback. This flashback, though, does not justify the weird and senseless acts of Mallika. How does Ranvir help Mallika with her problems? Does Mallika confess her love to Ranvir? Watch the film to know the implication of this unusual love story.

Analysis: Sachin Khot has tried to weave a different, unique love story, inspired by the Korean movie ‘My Sassy Girl’ but does not succeed. The film heads with a good start but gradually becomes a boring and messy one. The movie produces gags only at a few places. The flashback scenes do not create an impact on the audience. Instead, it becomes a loo break scene. The torment Ranvir faces because of Mallika will make us feel pity for him. The clown acts of Ranvir fail after a point of time and just start to irritate us. The romance scenes after a point of time become weary. And the climax!!!I guess the director did not know how to end the film but, badly wanted to, so he just filled the climax with quiet scenes.

Star Performances: The inactive script is bearable only because of the acting of Mallika and RanvirShorey. Ranvir has emoted really well and has given a hundred percent to his role. Surprisingly, Mallika has acted well in most of the scenes. The emotional scenes which Mallika emotes are loo break scenes. Sushmita Mukherjee Sushmita Mukherjee is a prominent film and televis >> Read More... Sushmita Mukherjee as Mallika’s mother holds our attention and has enacted her scenes really well.

What's There: 

• The film has a different storyline and a little exciting first half. 

• There are a few gags in the first half which makes it bearable.

• The movie can be watched for the interesting chemistry between the lead actors.

• The ‘Shut up Aaja Nachle’ song gives life to the film.

What's Not There: 

• The second half is almost as same as the first half and seems to be like an add-on.

• Mallika could have acted well in the emotional scenes.

• The script could have been more strong and brisk.

Verdict:  The movie is entertaining to an extent and can be watched once, especially for the efforts taken by Ranvir Shorey.
