Awesome comedy. Dark, funny, witty n a superb ending.
8 April 2018 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

SPOILER: Saw this in a theatre. Was highly anticipating it because i loved the director's earlier effort Delhi Belly which was outrageously funny. Of course the other reason is Irrfan Khan. The film follows the life of Dev (Irrfan) and his sometimes odd, sexual preferences. The missing photographs scenes were hilarious. The face cover scenes were hilarious too. Dev who is most attracted to his wife when she's sleeping, has a habit of peeping through a hole into his own bedroom. One night Dev comes early as advised by his colleague, finds his wife sleeping with another man. Surprisingly, given this dark subject matter, hilarity does in fact ensues. The film is filled with wacky complications, it takes a turn into darker territory with blackmailing, murder, conspiracy n accidents. One of the best part is that ther r no bloody songs except for one item song which was necessary for the colleague getting drunk n opening his mouth. There is some cleverly intelligent comedy here, but thats what I come to expect from Irrfan n Abhinay Deo. This film is really Irrfan's. He imbues his character with a sweetness that makes him more human and we as audiences wants him to win in his Pac-man game as well as in his revenge.
