Run time : 139 minutes


Dev (Irrfan Khan) wanted to surprise his wife Reena (Kirti Kulhari) so he decides to reach home early one day.

He found her in bed with her lover Ranjeet (Arunoday Singh)

Ranjeet who betrayed his wife Dolly (Divya Dutta).

Well, Dev decides to use this as an opportunity to extract some money from Ranjeet, with the help of this money, he wanted to clear off his EMIs and dues.

He sets the chain of extortions. Blackmailing leads to counter-blackmailing as money keeps changing hands.

Director Abhinay deo did a great job as he sets up the action well and keeps you engaged for a while.

You know, things begin to slacken, the film could have done with more sharpness despite of even wickedness.

But it could have been very well.

Each and every character is quirky, Irrfan who is specially good in the scene when the betrayal dawns on him.

In just a few shots, he communicates all the emotions at a go – disbelief, hurt, anger, suffocations.

Divya Dutta manages to bring her own shades of dark fun to the alcoholic.

I am finding it to difficult to pick up who was the worst= the stupid boss or office colleague.

This is undigested that middle class man wouldn’t ask for more moolah than he requires for his immediate needs, just Rs1 lakh!

It is difficult to understand how none could have found out about his wrongdoing in the office washroom with the photos of his colleagues wives.

If there is one thing that offers roadblocks in this otherwise fun ride, it is the slow pace with which Abinav establishes his plot and characters.

Well, the performances, fun filled and realistic  story telling keep you engaged and entertained.

  1. I want to show some thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from such a predicament. Right after scouting through the world wide web and obtaining advice that were not productive, I figured my entire life was done. Living minus the strategies to the problems you’ve solved through your good website is a serious case, and the kind which may have negatively damaged my entire career if I had not come across your blog post. The understanding and kindness in maneuvering a lot of things was valuable. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not discovered such a point like this. I am able to at this moment relish my future. Thank you very much for the high quality and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to recommend your web site to any person who wants and needs direction about this issue.
