A Fair Entertainer!
One of the finest actors of Hindi cinema, Saurabh Shukla Directs 'Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi?'. And luckily, Shukla has made a fairly entertaining rom-com, that doesn't fail to impress.
'Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi?' Synopsis: Following a wild party, a married man meets with his friends in order to try and remember his indiscretions.
What makes 'Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi?' work is its simplistic story & the characters it has. While the protagonist is good, the supporting characters appeal as much or even more. Especially the character played by Neha Dhupia. Its a well-written character!
Shukla who also Wrote The Story & Screenplay along-with Rajat Kapoor, makes sure there is movement in the narrative. Though slow-paced & dull in parts, the film works otherwise due to the interesting sequences it offers. Shukla has Directed the film well. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are okay.
Performance-Wise: Neha Dhupia excels in a meaty role. She delivers her best performance to date. Rajat Kapoor is perfect as the protagonist. Vinay Pathak is remarkably credible, as always. Dalip Tahil is in top form. Iravati is effective. Anu Menon is equally good. Navneet Nishan is adequate. In cameos, Ranvir Shorey & Aamir Bashir leave a mark.
On the whole, 'Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi?' has genuine merits.
