A genre like the one attempted in GAYAB has not been witnessed with rapid regularity in Hindi films. Of course, there has been MR. X IN BOMBAY, MR. INDIA and the two desi versions of GHOST, MAA and PYAAR KA SAAYA, in the past.
And now GAYAB.
Cast: Tusshar Kapoor, Antara Mali, Raghuveer Yadav, Rasika Joshi, Ramman Trikha, Govind Namdeo
Vishnu Prasad [Tusshar Kapoor] is a loser in life. He lacks self-confidence and the attitude to lead a normal life.
Having an unmatched knack of attracting problems, his life doesn’t get any easier, courtesy a nagging mother [Rasika Joshi], who takes pride in beating up Vishu given the slightest opportunity. His father [Raghuveer Yadav], a henpecked husband, is petrified to raise a voice, let alone take his side. Mohini [Antra Mali], the love of Vishnu’s life, doesn’t even know his existence and her boyfriend [Raman Trikha] wants to break his bones.
Disappointed and frustrated with life, he prays to God to make him gayabâ€¦ And the wish is granted!
An original piece of work? Nope! Flashes of THE INVISIBLE MAN  and the more recent HOLLOW MAN  cross your mind as you watch GAYAB. Unfortunately, GAYAB is an interesting idea gone haywire. When stretched into a 2-hour film, it just doesn’t hold.
