After almost five years, accomplished actor Saurabh Shukla returns to the director’s chair with RAAT GAYI, BAAT GAYI?, a film that’s making the right buzz.Making an adult comedy that talks of one night stand is tough.But giving the serious issue a humorous take is tougher.RAAT GAYI, BAAT GAYI? is about relationships and also looks at the philanderers, who, despite being committed, don’t mind having a PYT in a closet, for no strings attached fun.
Cast: Rajat Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Vinay Pathak
Rahul (Rajat Kapoor) wakes up foggy after a night of drunken revelry at a party with a svelte and sexy babe Sophia (Neha Dhupia) but canâ€™t clearly recall how far he went on his bed-rocking adventure with the hottie.Heâ€™s particularly worried because his wife Mitali (Iravati Harshe), who was also at the party, is withdrawn and sullen in the morning. She seems to know the truth which Rahul himself canâ€™t recall.So, Mr. Cheater visits his neighborhood buddy Amit (Vinay Pathak) to untangle the mystery. Amit being of little help, the duo meets up the partyâ€™s host Saxena (Dalip Tahil) who outwardly is happily married to a plump Punjabi (Navneet Nishan) but is having a fling on the side with the same hottie.
As the trio set about to piece together the jigsaw of the debauched night, we are flashbacked to the party and its colourful, droll, and drab characters. Did Rahul transgress the bounds of marital vows? Did he bed Sophia? Or is there another secret that springs up as a sting in the taleâ€™s tail.
Advertised hinting the film as the desi version of Hollywoodâ€™s 2009 super hit The Hangover, Raat Gayi Baat Gayi is anything but that! But that doesnâ€™t take away the fact that itâ€™s a wonderfully crafted entertaining affair.
