movie has decent actors and theme, but disappoints with its execution
Actors like Kay Kay Menon and Rajpal Yadav and the theme of juxtaposition of a dance bar and a large 5 star hotel might raise expectation from this movie. Here the story alternates between events which happen in the 5 star hotel where Kay Kay works as a bellboy and the dance bar where Rajpal Yadav is working as a waiter. Some of these events are intended to leave one introspecting about the society and hypocrisy within it at large. As said earlier, the theme and story had potential, specially with the ensemble of actors gotten together for the movie. Unfortunately the overall treatment is not very smoothly done. Rajpal Yadav and Shweta Tiwari (who actually looked quite good in the movie) did decent work, but Kay Kay and the rest of the cast did not really impress much. There are some good scenes in the movie, but they feel like being pinched from some of the earlier movies on similar themes (e.g. Page 3). The movie is a bit clichéd and a somewhat feel-good ending was kind of forced into the end. The direction and editing had room for improvement. Overall, the movie is OK for watching if you don't have anything else to do, or if you are new to alternative Indian cinema (because the cliché and repetitions won't rankle).
