Bombay/Mumbai parallel cinema

Two bumbling photographers of a scandal sheet try to uncover dirty business and get drawn into a mad chase where eveyone chases everyone else. Director Kundan Shah composes this inventive slapstick comedy as a treasure trove of references. Figures an film references from the new Indian cinema and to international cinema abound. This energetic film communicates something of the irreverence and cynicism of a new generation immersed in the dross of the contemporary city rather than the myth of a principled an viruous nation.
