You have the pimps, whores, muggers and murderers who seem to take over the city once the last local leaves on its final journey. And then, you have the hero: a call centre coolie who dreams of the good life while slogging it out in the airless cube farms of the IT industry.
Cast: Abhay Deol, Neha Dhupia
Ek Chalis Ki Last Local chugs along through some interesting turns and some overstretched curves. There is humour, drama, violence and weirdness as both Nilesh and Maya find themselves in inescapable situations. However, the storyâ€™s culmination is quite pleasing.
Honestly, it’s an interesting premise. A stranger Nilesh (Abhay Deol) misses the last local and spends the night getting involved in a series of misadventures until the next local and ends up making Rs 2.5 crores.
Nilesh (Abhay Deol) is a call center employee who misses the last local train to Vikhroli scheduled at â€œek chalisâ€. Because of that, he now has no alternative but to wait for another train to come, since the auto drivers are on a strike. It is then that he meets up with the future love of his life, Madhu (Neha Dhupia) who has also missed her train. They both end up going to a local bar in order to kill time. Thus a series of adventures and misadventures follow as the duo encounter situations, which are sometimes sweet and sometimes sour. However their lives are catapulted forever as they manage to make moneyâ€¦. Loads of money, that is!!!!
Ek Chalis Ki Last Local is good to while away your time, even if you donâ€™t get as lucky as the filmâ€™s hero who gets the booty and the girl in the end.
