Storyline

Debu Chatterjee is in his 30s, and is chided by everyone he knows as a "virgin". Tired of being stereotyped in this manner, he confides in Baba Hindustani, and Pyarelal about his predicament, and they offer to help him out, with hilarious results. Then one day, while watching a movie in a theater, Debu is shocked to see himself in an adult sex film, and this changes everything all around him, as people look at him differently than they did when they knew him to be a virgin. A stunned and perplexed Debu sets out to find out as to how he came to be caste in this movie. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

If you choose the combination of romance and sex to make a comedy, it sounds like a decent idea. And also if you add some well-developed supporting characters, that makes it more interesting. You give the film an urban setting and write the dialogue in Hinglish, and that makes it trendier.

BUT YOU GOTTA HAVE A SCRIPT. You got to have a screenplay that draws you into the story, the characters; so that you laugh at the right jokes and smile at the right moments. So that you care about the characters and have a sense of empathy for them; then regardless of the familiarity of the plot, you can enjoy a film.

I couldn't understand what made actors like Rahul Bose and Perizaad Zorabian choose such a project. In spite of the distasteful screenplay, they still give very competent performances. And this Zorabian lady just radiates on the screen. She has amazing screen presence and you sense that respect for the intellect in her performance. Bose as usual displays impeccable timing and subtle nuances in his performances. Oh, how you wish they had come together in a better film. Saurabh Shukla, Asrani and Vijay Raaz are all decent.

The director Anant Balani passed away recently, before the release of the film. Another film Jogger's Park (also featuring Perizaad) credits him as the director posthmously. I haven't seen Jogger's Park yet. Hopefully that film will be a more befitting swansong. 5/10.
