Rating: Zero

No, no, no, this has absolutely no connection to Rajkumar Hirani’s movie in progress. Our apologies, Raju, for dragging your fair name into this unholy mess, but truly, no title could be more apt for this cinematic outrage about an incredibly idiotic trio of friends. And, get this, when Sid (Arshad Warsi) is in dire straits, he turns for help to a mobster called Munnabhai.

The one-line storyline: Sid and Amit (Yash Tonk) are trying to help their dear friend John (Aashish Choudhry) find true love lest he commits ‘soocide’.

When he loses his first love Natasha (Aarti Chhabria) and pines for her, here’s the advice he gets: “When you haven’t tasted the girl, why waste your life on her?” The solution, his friends decide, is to find him a “substitute or prostitute”. The prostitute (Shweta Menon) gives up on him, alas, and the substitute (Udita Goswami) does him in.

Add to this drivel a camera that has a penchant for zooming in on Yash Tonk’s screaming mouth; crotches (male and female) and swinging backsides (largely male). The gags include electrified nipples (yes, you read right) and the gigs involve a band called Punjabi Male.

We couldn’t find a single half-way sensible/funny/entertaining moment in this cinematic atyachaar perpetrated by Ajay Chandok. Do tell us if you could.
