Raat Gayi Baat Gayi - Movie Review

Been there, seen that

Beneath the veneer of a steady smooth marriage lies the seed of temptation that needs a few swigs of wine to sprout and find an ecstatic release. No wonder that almost every character in Raat Gayi Baat Gayi seems to be cheating on his or her spouse.

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 can’t clearly recall how far he went on his bed-rocking adventure with the hottie. He’s particularly worried because his wife Mitali (Iravati Harshe), who was also at the party, is withdrawn and sullen in the morning.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 can’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 party’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 tale’s tail.

A wry comedy with its share of oddball characters not uncommon from the ones in previous films by the Rajat-Vinay-Neha gang, ‘Raat Gayi Baat Gayi’ gives you a slightly déjà vu feel of having been there and seen that. With Vinay once again playing a commoner who sneak peeks into porn or Rajat playing the suave smoothie or Neha playing a temptress, there’s little shock value to the film and how the characters are shaped, but for its climax which more than compensates for the sluggish interludes in an otherwise briskly unfolding tale.

The performances are doubtlessly topnotch, with even Navneet Nishan managing convincingly to play the rotund and slightly snobbish party hostess or Irawati Harshe lending a somber mystique to Rahul’s morose wife. Anuradha Menon, the inimitable VJ Lola Kutty of the small screen, tones herself down substantially.

Director Saurabh Shukla peppers the screenplay with good bouts of potent humour, but it isn’t the kind that will have you doubling up with laughter. All in all, a timepass watch.
