The film depicts the life of an over ambitious man named Aman (Ranvir Shorey), who wants to make it big in the real estate world. He loves his wife Divya (Neha Dhupia). He is a perfect husband and wants to provide all the luxuries to her. Divya is a journalist. Her character represents the independent working woman of Delhi. The story revolves around the series of scams Aman pulls off in order to score a big house in Delhi. These scams, one after another, go horribly wrong and lead him to bigger problems.
The first half of the movie is smooth and successfully builds up curiosity to know what is going to happen next. Second half keeps you on your toes as it gradually unfolds the story in an impressive manner. All the characters are connected to each other and their connections are revealed in a subtle manner, which adds the element of suspense in the film.
Both the actors picked Delhi’s accent and lifestyle accurately. Neha Dhupia gave one of her career-best performances in this movie. Ranvir as usual was at his best. Other actors in the film lacked good acting skills but Vidushi Mehra who played Bhavna in the movie stole the show in her short but impactful appearance.
Demonetisation has turned out to be an opportunity for the film as it presents the consequences of black money in life-like situation. From Neha’s gray hair streak to art direction, minute details in the film makes it more realistic.
A roller coaster ride, this film is a one-time watch.
The film will hit the big screen on November 25, 2016.
