(Sanjay Suri), a compulsive gambler, is fed up with
his father and leaves his house. Bobby (Dino Morea)
is upset with his parents for not supporting his dreams
of becoming the next Amitab Bahchchan (he claims that
he is the future of India). Jai (Bikram Saluja) leaves
his place because his parents are forcibly trying to
marry him off, but his lover (Riya Sen) is in Mumbai.
Omi (Rohit Roy) was sent to Mumbai by his father to
collect the loan of 1 lakh given to a friend of him.
All these four youngsters - strangers to each other
- meet on a train bound to Mumbai and become good pals.
reaching Mumbai, they take help of a friend Jaggi (Sanjay
Mishra) to get accommodation. Their money is drying
up as days pass by. And they all decide to put their
remaining amount on the gambling abilities of Lucky.
But luck does not favor Lucky and he owes a huge sum
of 7 lakhs to a mafia guy at the end of the play. That
mafia guy threatens to kill these four guys if they
do not pay him 7 lakhs in 7 days. Then they plan to
kidnap a wealthy man who comes to a ladies bar. They
kidnap him and take him to their location. Then they
realize that the kidnapped man is none but Musa (Sanjay
Dutt) - the most dreaded bhai (mafia man) in Mumbai.
furious Musa realises that he was kidnapped because
his assistants did not accompany him to ladies bar.
And then he comes to know that they joined hands with
his arch rival Sultan (Mahesh Manjrekar) in a conspiracy
to assassinate him. The rest of the story is all about
how Musa settles scores with Sultan and sends these
4 youngsters back to their home towns.
the youngsters, Dino Morea
steals the show followed by Sanjay
Suri. Bikram Saluja
and Rohit Roy are adequate.
Sanjay Mishra is entertaining.
Sanjay Dutt is cool as
Bhai with his funky hairdo. Mahesh
Manjrekar is given a under developed role. All
the girls in the film are used for skin show. Priyanka
Chopra did the role of a dancer girl and she
has a couple of flashy songs. Payal
Rohatgi is extremely sexy in her pub act and
steamy song. Sameera Reddy
is sensuous with her dusky looks and she is given a
bad deal in this film with a half-baked role. One wonders
why Riya Sen acted in a
'one scene - one song' role. Razzak
Khan is hilarious as filmmaker.
The basic storyline of this film is heavily inspired
by Hollywood flick 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'.
It also has resemblance to a Telugu film 'Aithe'.
- direction: Screenplay of the film leaves a lot
to be desired. The way director introduced various actors
is impressive. But the way he mingled the dreams of
four youngsters with the rivalry between two dons is
pathetic. The narration of the film confuses you at
times and bores you most of the times. It's a bad debut
for the director Hriday Shetty.
departments: The music by Anand
Raj Anand is stale. Background score is cacophonic
most of the times. Cinematography is ok. Dialogues are
good at times. Especially the funny shayaries written
for Mahesh Manjrekar. Camerawork is fine.
First half of the film is very slow with not much story.
Second half of the film appears quite boring with illogical
and nonsensical moves. Its quite a disappointment for
all those movie lovers who enjoyed the performance as
Munnabhai in 'Munnabhai MBBS' to see him as 'Musa'.
You can safely avoid watching this film!
