Rated NR · 140 min. · 2012
Mahi Arora (Kareena Kapoor), a Bollywood star, is needy, greedy and wised-up to the back room deals of the Hindi film capital. Heroine skips the rags to riches part; instead, Mahi is already fighting with everyone (including Arjun Rampal, as her married lover) when the film begins, and there is no happiness to remember. Kareena, exquisitely glam or tear-streaked, runs the gamut of emotions, dances in a hot-item number, smokes, swears and pops pills. Director Madhur Bhandarkar rehashes the scandalous tropes of his previous hits, especially Fashion, in which Priyanka Chopra gathered accolades in a similar part. The point seems to be to present Kareena in a dazzling showcase, winning this year's acting awards before (in real life) she weds her boyfriend, cooling off her career. She's flying solo, surrounded by weaker actors, except for Ranvir Shorey's showy cameo as a mercurial director.
