“This was unexpected. I went in the hall with low expectations, having literally no idea of what the film was going to be about.nI had no idea of what I was in for. Boy, did I enjoy every bit of the roller-coaster ride!nOn the surface, it looks to be simple – a man finds his wife is cheating on him, he plans to blackmail on his wifeu0026#39;s boyfriend to pay off his bills. nThatu0026#39;s where it gets complicated.nWhat follows is an impressive accounts lesson, money changing hands as frequently as nymphomaniacs changing clothes, and shades of grey revealed in every character. Friendship, love, jobs, loyalty – everything bows their head to the almighty rupee (or dollar, depending on where you are from).nThe music is impressive. The soundtrack is among Amit Trivediu0026#39;s top five, easily.nThe acting is, for lack of a better word, amazing. Irrfan Khan steals the show. Smaller actors could have easily collapsed under the weight that the film demanded from the lead role, but boy, he does not disappoint. Other actors (Arunoday Singh, Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Omi Vaidya, et al.) also make handle their roles with grace, but your eyes will never stray from Irrfan.nOne word of caution, though – this is full of dark humor, not dark comedy – donu0026#39;t go into the film expecting laughs and giggles.”
