fantastic!~
28 May 2004 | by ivahhcSee all my reviews

This is the funniest, slickest Hindi movie I've seen. It is what I hope Bollywood is changing to. This film gives me hope for Indian movies in the international scene. The dialogue, the acting, the plot, and the asides were all meticulously crafted. I haven't been this more thoroughly and cerebrally amused by a movie, let alone a Hindi movie, in a while! Yes, some of it was predictable, but what movie doesn't borrow from predecessors (Or Tarantino?)? I particularly liked the voiced-over thoughts for Puneet (Arshad Warsi) and Agni (Sandhya Mridul). Gangubai (Pratima Kazmi) was a hoot; Mahima's cameo fantastic. And the music -- what a refreshing change. Besides the My Name is ... song, everything else is beautifully fitting. A side note: it's unusual to find a short-haired heroine in a Hindi film and that, too, was striking.
