Debashis Chatterjee aka Debu (Rahul Bose) is a 32-year
old bespectacled introvert guy working in an ad agency.
He is timid and has unlimited obsession towards sex
and objects of sex. But the bottom line is that 'he
is still a virgin at the age of 32'.
day, he comes across a pamphlet that describes about
omni powerful baba - 'Baba Hindustani' (Vijay Raaz)
who is staying in hotel Piccadilly. Debu visits that
hotel and he accidentally bumps in to Nitin Kapoor (Saurab
Shukla) a pot-bellied small time film producer. They
gel well. Later on Debu meets saffron clad Baba Hindustani
who presents him with a bottle of green pills, which
are supposed to give force to Debu.
days pass and nothing happens. Mean time Nitin Kapoor's
latest film 'Sholay mein deewar' gets stuck with financiers
and they demand that few steamy scenes should be inserted
in the film to get the business done. When Debu returns
back to Baba Hindustani about futile results, he sends
Debu to a prostitute's house and there he is get caught
by cop (Prithvi Zutshi) , who happens to be a forthright
Bengali guy. Nitin Kapoor bails Debu out. When Debu
visits Baba again, he asks him to get naked (except
for shorts) and ask him to do exercises.
on when Debu watches Sholay mein deewar film, he realizes
that all the exercise shots taken clandestinely on Debu
without his knowledge were super imposed on a girl and
they made a soft porn steamy scene out of it. Debu loses
his job, his landlord throws him out of the PG accommodation.
But, Debu is the nation's most wanted sex star. Then
he meets a journalist called Sonia Varma (Perizaad Zorabian)
who wants to interview him. He gets arrested by police
for starring in steamy scenes. Sonia bails him out and
takes him to her house.
rest of the story is all about the love angle between
Debu and Sonia and how Debu loses his virginity!
Bose: Rahul Bose is a perfect fit for Debu character.
Its nice to see him in wide variety roles ranging from
'English, August' to 'Mumbai Matinee' now.. Wearing
spectacles and occasional stuttering helped him appear
like an introvert and thus it made audience believe
that he is a virgin.
Zorabian: Looks like Perizaad is being considered
for the roles of heroine where she is a single and independent
girl with no relatives. She did similar kinds of roles
in Bollywood Calling and Joggers Park. She is verve
in this film. However, lack of depth in her characterization
makes Perizaad wasted in this film.
Raaz: Its one more entertaining role for Vijay Raaz
after his marriage contractor role in 'Monsoon Wedding'.
He evoked humor with his funny gestures as Baba Hindustani.
Shukla: He played the role of good at heart and
good for nothing film producer, who could not succeed
in spite of celebrating 25 years of existence in film
industry as producer. You can see lot of frustration
in his character.
Kabeer is apt for the role of hero's buddy. I fail to
understand why Anusha Dhandekar is shown as a temptress
in the publicity of the film, since all she has done
in this film is to dance for an item song. Veteran Asrani
played the role of sophisticated sidekick of Baba Hindustani.
Sunila Kalambelkar is hot as the leg crossing/uncrossing
secretary who wears mini skirts (preferably red) all
The basic storyline of the film is interesting. The
story which was of slapstick nature in the first half
takes a U turn in the second and then it tends to become
philosophical and realistic.
- direction: Screenplay of the film is bad and direction
is OK. With an interesting story plot, the director
tried to be different with a slapstick narration. But
he could not create situations where humor comes out
naturally. Director seems to have got confused about
how to end the film.
departments: Music is OK. Songs are mediocre. Dialogues
have 95% English in them. Editing is not crisp. Camera
work is realistic. This film is made on a low budget.
The film starts off on an interesting note, but the
spirits of the film took a nose dive once heroine character
enters. And keeping a sincere love story after hero
going through all the slapstick difficulties did not
click with the audiences. Climax of the film is a let
down. This film offers nothing except for occasional
comedy. Sex comedy is not a taboo for the multiplexes
in India. But sex comedy would not work if there are
no emotions in it. You can comfortably wait till DVD
