I bumped into this one while browsing for some interesting yet unheard of movies I missed last year. The title itself sounds pretty catchy so I decided to check it out with lots of free time and free popcorn by my side. Honestly I wasn't disappointed.
The beginning itself is intriguing and unconventional when we get introduced to a not so typical bright and shine cop not the kind we are so used to in bollywood movies. The cop Jay played pretty well by Jimmy Shergill shares his equally intriguing philosophy about the betrayal in the charms of women and how he's been let down by his own heart giving in when the mind doesn't want to. This we realize is the premise that would be slowly revealed in the rest of the movie and completely unraveled at the end of it. Assigned with the security of the minister and his young daughter he doesn't come across as a model for a Cop as he ends up in bed with what he is supposed to only protect. This gets him in trouble after which he is transfered to Mumbai where the rest of the story proceeds with a murder mystery of a Remix mogul Anirudh. He has company in the form of the other cop, his buddy cum "unlucky jinx" and a seductive yet dangerous Tanya, the wife of the murder victim. As the movie plays along there are some needless and dragging explorations made in the relationship of Tanya with her now dead husband and others around him as well as the sexual tension developing between the two main protagonists. However, the movie manages to keep the interest factor up till the very end.
By the end of it I was pretty convinced of what was to come but was surprised at what it turned out to be. In many ways the movie reminded me of a similar and deadly twist in the Hollywood blockbuster Wild Things running around the same theme. The rest is best left to be watched for what its worth. I word of advice is not to expect too much out of it but at the same time not to underplay any of what we see in the movie. Its not as disappointing as some regular bollywood thrash these days.
Hrishitaa bhatt who had a lot of screen space in her first movie Haasil with Jimmy Shergill this time only manages to grab a part as the weeping sobbing Priya who after a short affair with the victim becomes one of the prime suspects. The acting entirely belongs to Jimmy Shergill although Kim Sharma largely providing eye candy in the role of Tanya has her moments too. Both look good together on screen and believable at the same time. I was expecting much less from this unknown movie than a few moments of entertainment but was pleasantly surprised. Still it would'nt be a puzzle if it goes unnoticed in Bollywood so I gave it a balanced 5 star for now.
