Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi

There is nice, little Indian urban comedy, which is likely to get missed out amidst the houseful theaters of 3 idiots and Avtar. But you should not.

Some disclaimers though

  • Singles-never-been-in-long-term-serious-relationship may find it too arbit. Married/committed-for-long people should find it funny; even if arbit, funnily so!
  • The above is not because of explicit adult conversations (who is claiming innocence here) or talks of infidelity, but because of the subtle nuances involved in relationships which surface only after the “honeymoon phase” is over.
  • The movie is not as funny as it could have been. Dialogues, writing could definitely have been better and funnier.

That said, it still is worth a watch for its well itched out characters, very good acting by all the cast members, the slight suspense and fun it creates, its comfortingly identifiable Indian urban settings and Rajat Kapoor (I know Vinay Pathak has gotten the award nomination, but I am falling for Rajat Kapoor).

The cast and crew together are the same as ‘Mithya‘, sans Naseeruddin Shah. The director and an actor have switched their roles (Saurabh Shukla, Rajat Kapoor). ‘Mithya’ was definitely more magical, but this should not be missed out on either.
