15 Certificate


Our Score
Naseeruddin Shah is probably best known to western audiences for his appearances in Monsoon Wedding and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (as a sword-wielding Captain Nemo), but much of his venerable career has been spent in Bollywood cinema. In this action drama, he brings undoubted charisma to bear as a thief who goes on the run with his nephew after a botched job. The two men then end up falling for a friend's widow (Vidya Balan), who involves them in her own machinations. It's undemanding fare but watchable, nonetheless.


An uncle and nephew conman team incur the wrath of their gangster boss, and seek shelter in the home of an old friend. They find he has died and are both attracted to his widow, threatening their chances of a clean getaway. Comedy drama, starring Naseeruddin Shah, Vidya Balan and Arshad Warsi. In Hindi.
