Storyline

Ten years ago, small time crook Aftab Angrez made a hit-man's dream debut in the Mumbai underworld with a shocking, high-profile killing. Much to his bad luck, the credit was attributed to someone else. Now back in Mumbai, with the help of two long-retired gang-mates, he sets out to regain that long lost glory. A bitter-sweet tale about lovable losers, identity crises, dashed hopes, and many misfired bullets that is riddled with laughs. Written by Anonymous

Good Stuff - Snooze Subtitles
5 November 2006 | by setzermanSee all my reviews

A friend of mine invited us to one of the first screenings of this Bollywood nouveau-gangster comedy at the South Asian Film Festival in the East Village. This movie was surprisingly entertaining, despite blasting you with unfamiliar sights and sounds, and placing you squarely outside of your comfort zone, if you are not from South Asia. If you are not a Hindi-speaker, you probably will not be a big fan of the (oddly-colored) subtitles.

The cast in this movie is either amazing or very well directed: probably a combination of both. A special mention must go out to both Irfan and Razak, who are uncomfortably convincing in their roles, though not understanding their language, I can't be the ideal judge.

Frankly, unless you understand Hindi, this is a difficult movie to fully enjoy at the theater. Rent it out or borrow it from your Indian friends, as it definitely is worth it: a lot of laughs, originally set up and a sweet message.

Irfan Khan (Aftab Angrez) - 9/10 - Hilarious guy.

Vijay Maurya (Nandu/Johny) - 7/10 - Solid supporting guy.

Razak Khan (Khilji Bhai) - 9/10 - Freaky psycho.

Aditya Bhattacharya - 7/10 - Good job.
