Produced by legendary Hollywood actor Robert De Niroâ€™s daughter Drena De Niro, Karma Aur Holi (earlier titled Karma Confessions and Holi) is not your typical NRI flick that tries to force the message down your throat about how better India is than the USA or how one is struggling to find his own identity in the land of Uncle Sam, but then it is again not a very engaging film that can be you focused for its two hour running time.
Cast: Sushmita Sen, Randeep Hooda, Drena DeNiro
Meera (Sushmita) is a financial consultant cum yoga teacher and her hubby Dev (Hooda) runs publishing house. They have a great huge house and everything seems to be going picture perfect or is it really? They plan to throw a Holi bash for their friends and relatives at their new mansion and all the guests assemble the evening before the Holi party. Amongst them are Meeraâ€™s ever worrying sister Vani (Rati) and her mature hubby Shekhar (Oberoi) and their 17 year old son Vikram (Chandan), there is a male chauvinist Dr. Nimish with his docile wife Sujata (Suchitra) and her sister Preeti (Deepal), there is Meeraâ€™s wannabe filmmaker friend Javed (Armin Amiri) and his girlfriend Jennifer (Naomi), Devâ€™s associate Geentanjali (Maya) and Meeraâ€™s tarot reader friend Megan (Drena).
As the evening begins to unfold, skeletons start tumbling out of each of these charactersâ€™ bags and leads to complicated situations. How those close to them and around them get affected by these and what solutions come out of them when the â€˜Holiâ€™ day arrives forms the rest of the film.
