Good actors can deliver good comedy!
10 April 2018 | by bigmoviebuff-98923See all my reviews

What would you do if you return home one day to find your wife in bed with her lover? Well as the title of this Abhinay Deo directed quirky comedy suggests, the husband(Dev) decides to blackmail him. He purchases a new mobile and sim and texts him demanding I lakh rupees otherwise he would expose the affair. Now the lover(Ranjit) himself is in an unhappy marriage and is forced to cajole his bossy wife(Dolly) to lend him the money under the pretext of starting his own canine import export business. This is how the first blackmail takes place. Through the course of the film there are several blackmails which occur with Dev being the center of all of them. He is either the one who is demanding the money or the one who ends up paying it. The premise is unique and Abhinay smartly exploits it to give the audience several laughs. The side plot involving Dev's obsession with pictures of other men's wives is one that's extremely hilarious and the way Irrfan Khan goes about carrying about this obsession just adds on to the humour quotient. The script is easy flowing and the characterization is excellently done. Every character has a unique personality which gives them depth and relatability. There is never the sense of something being out of place or someone behaving in an over the top manner. This shows quality actors can pull off good comedic roles without stepping into slapstick territory. The first half is slow but the second half more than makes up for it with it's faster pace and unpredictability. If you're tired of watching Sajid Khan inspired comedies loaded with forced humour and overacting watch this movie to restore your faith in the comedy genre.
