In the world of copy-cats.... here's to the original
When I first heard the title I presumed either to be a sleazy movie or yet another new-age cinema on its way to gather dust. Add "no publicity" to it and the perceptions sinks deeper than titanic. When I saw Anupam Kher & Kay Kay in credits, I decided to give it a go. And guess what - its a piece of jewel indeed.

۝ Kay Kay:: Attempts comedy and does it quite well. The role is well sketched and his passion for fish is well portrayed. At the risk of being repetitive "Wake up Bollywood - this guy is grossly under- utilised".

۝ Rimmi:: The character seems inspired from Kill Bill & predominantly Entrapment. She gets very good street-smart lines and uses Bengali quite effectively (Dhoom again?).

۝ Anupam Kher:: Spot on. And his role/ accent is a direct lift of his previous outing as Inspector Giridhar in "Hum".

۝ Dilip Phabhavalkar:: IMO - though he was good he could have been better especially when it came to amnesia.

۝ Chunky:: Good to see him in a suitable role(s) after a very long time. Both the characters though diverse as chalk-and-cheese he managed to give it a distinct flavour. Pity the role was short though.

۝ Manoj Pahwa & Sanjay Mishra:: As usual the Laurel & Hardy duo are dependable with good comic timing between them.

۝ Virendra Saxena, Yashpal Sharma & Vallabh Vyas:: Very short role but do their job quite well.

Barring a few sequences pertaining to the slip-between-the-cup-and-the- lip in the chase of the moolah, the rest is indeed very-very hatke. Quite safe to say director knows his job well.

Sankar City, the title might be deceptive but take my word - its original, its entertaining and the size is just about right. Go for it.
