Very slow movie lacking much juice
February 3, 2009
A breezy relief from the predictable potboiler and minus the overexposed unnecessary glamour added to just sell a movie. This movie traces back to the film making, storytelling styles of Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Comical,believable and simple characters, plot, situations. Pokes fun at the Hindi mega-seria watching kitty-party going stereotypes but portrays women in a very positive and staunch light. Delightful performances by Kiron Kher, Farooque Shaikh and Lillette Dubey. Even Tanushree Datta has kept her usual oomph in the back seat and underplayed her character to the hilt giving the sexpot status to Masumi Makhija. Over all a nice, lighthearted movie that captures the nuances of the current Indian culture with ease.

very, very realistic characters; funny, light-hearted tale about a divorcee, the stereotypes she must break, the gossip mills she must ignore, the reputation she must build in society, the career and house she must manage, and the relationship she must protect with her daughter with India's booming economy as a backdrop. farooq sheikh is terrific.

A boring movie and the story is inspired from boring saas-bahu-soaps. This makes the movie very feminine and simply boring.

Simple premise, simple movie. Nothing that catches your eye.....EXCEPT.....an outstanding performance by Farooque Shaikh.

The movie is worth watching only for that one performance.

An undemanding but enjoyable film that has a high feel good factor. Kiron Kher relocates to Mumbai without fully explaining why to her unhappy daughter, Nitya. In the community flats where they live is what is called a "kitty group" which the mother soon joins. As one might expect, this gossipy group of ladies like to speculate about the newcomer in their midst and an unfortunate sequence of events leads to some amusing incidents. The Sensex of the title refers to the Mumbai stock exchange and the group decide to dabble in the market, becoming caught up in the highs and lows. Their misanthropic broker is really quite kind and a burgeoning affection develops between him and K.

Meanwhile Nitya is befriended by the lovesick R who helps her get a job in a call centre. Unfortunately she is not the object of his affections but the beautiful but selfish Kirti who uses men to get whatever she wants, time, money and shopping.
Kirti meets her match and we see a strength to her character we hadn't before. Meanwhile Nitya is falling for R but it looks hopeless as his infatuation with Kirti shows no sign of ending. Will she find happiness?

An unusual film with a romantic comedy twinned with the apparently unstoppable rise of the Sensex! With the exception of R it is the women in this movie are the major players and make the decisions. I enjoyed it and recommend this easy going and frequently amusing film for those who don't want to have to think to hard while they relax in front of a movie.

Simple script.. simple story.. simple presentation. If you are big time fan of "Ekta Kapoor saas bahu shiiit" then this could be eye opener to you... lol.
