Storyline

This film is about lives of people who live on the edge of what society finds acceptable. It is about coming to terms with oneself and accepting other people as they are. The film is set in the cosmopolitan city of Delhi where people from all over the country come to fulfill their dreams. For some, these dreams are realized, while others remain in an endless pursuit of other elusive dreams. Perhaps it is the hope of ultimately reaching that destination that keeps one going. And then there are others who surrender to the overwhelming power of the city of dreams and get lost in the maze. This film is the story of a coffee shop girl Raina and the man who loves her- Azfar, an aspiring model.

good job of handling multiple characters
16 July 2019 | by beevenkatSee all my reviews

#Shab had the potential to be a bold n provocative film, instead, it turns out to be tame. But director Onir has done a good job of handling multiple characters n their insecurities. Newcomer Bisht is perfectly cast as the small-town aspiring model, who later becomes toy boy to rich n bored wife Raveena. His innocence n vulnerability will charm you. Raveena's performance is good but her character needed more power. Areesz as the restaurant owner is good n so is Arpita, who hides a dark secret. Definitely far better than the over-hyped Khan movies. Rating 3/5.
