Driving down to the movie hall to watch the show tonight i was( like i always do) trying to guess the story and stuff.I was hoping the movie would be atleast half as good as the music was and i would be vindicated in my stand to watch Ishqiya first instead of Rann or else my friends would have a ball at my expense.Ten minutes into the movie i was sure i need not worry any more. The story revolves around Krishna(Vidya Balan) who is the wife of a gangster who is part of one of the gangs in the caste wars .The story is set in rural UP where castes have their own small armies.As the movie opens we are introduced to Krishna persuading her rowdy husband to surrender and come clean and soon he is killed in a cylinder blast.Kalujan and Babban, played by Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi are a pair of thieves who are on the run for taking money from their boss.They show up at krishna's house and discover that their friend is dead and set up camp in her house.A love triangle ensues and the film takes off from here with kidnappings and plots thrown in. Written by Vishal Bharadwaj and directed by Abhishek Chaubey the movie delights you with its saucy yet clever dialogues.The film is peppered with delightful dialogues which border on being crude but are humorous and cracking!!! Vidya Balan with another powerhouse performance after Paa is the soul of the movie.The lady is a seductress and a good one at that.Naseeruddin Shah is completely at home playing the old fashion romantic . Arshad Warsi is the more brash,direct romantic and also he is the one with the best dialogues in the movie and induces quite a few laughs with his witty dialogue. The background score of the movie by Vishal Bharadwaj is fantastic and extraordinary. The movie is entertaining and a total delight to watch.Some dialogues might be a tad uncomfortable if you are watching with your parents.Take your buddies along,and if your buddies happen to be from the Bihar/UP belt they might even thank your for it like mine did!!(Its their dialect of Hindi on the screen afterall :-) ) And oh yeah whats with poor Reema Sen and a blink and miss cameo as a prostitute!!!
