The Sunday Movie Review

Fun To Watch
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 3/5

No choo chaa. No beating about the bush. Let me come straight to the point. Rohit Shetty's movie 'Sunday' is no laugh riot. But it is indeed a good fun to watch once.

Thankfully, 'Sunday' is not a senseless comedy like Welcome . It doesn't string one gag after another without any direction to the story. 'Sunday' does have an engaging tale, a murder mystery, at its heart. Around it revolves the humour - a healthy cocktail of situational comedy and plain slapstick. Add to it some stunts, action and romance. And voila, you have the recipe for a true-blue masala entertainer. That is what 'Sunday' is.

The movie begins with a murder. The killer, his/her face unrevealed, dumps the girl's dead body in a park.

Sehar ( Ayesha Takia ) has a gift for mimicking different voices - a talent that she puts to use by working as a dubbing artist for animation films. But she has a habit of forgetting things.

On a Saturday night, Sehar, along with her friend Ritu ( Anjana Sukhani ), goes to a discotheque, where two guys try to get fresh with them. Sehar teaches them a lesson in her own way.

The next day when Sehar wakes up, she finds something amiss. Odd things begin to happen to her.

A cabbie named Ballu ( Arshad Warsi ), whom she runs into more than once, keeps asking her for his unpaid taxi fare, an exact amount of Rs. 420. A struggling actor named Kumar ( Irrfan Khan ), screams bhoot every time he sees Sehar. And there are also a bunch of goons who are out to kill Sehar.

The poor girl doesn't know who all these guys are and why they are after her.

And there is also an ice-cream-gorging Inspector Rajveer ( Ajay Devgan ) and his Haryanawi colleague Anwar (Mukesh Tiwari), who are open to bribes, and have their own unique way of functioning.

Rajveer falls for Sehar. But as he goes about investigating the murder case, all the clues point to Sehar. And after some brainstorming, he discovers that Sehar cannot remember anything about a particular Sunday in her life, the one right after the night she went to discotheque. The rest of the film is about finding the missing Sunday and linking the pieces of the puzzle together to get to the real killer.

First things first. 'Sunday' is not so much of a murder mystery as it is a comedy. And the main drivers on this front are Irrfan Khan and Arshad Warsi.

Irrfan is terrific playing a struggling actor who is always dressed in different guises - a lawyer, a ravana, or a don. Irrfan's style of comedy is unique. He doesn't do anything goofy or make funny faces, yet with his facial expressions and dialogue delivery, he brings his comic timing to bear.

Arshad Warsi shows his flair for comedy yet again, playing a clever cabbie who crams his taxi with passengers or pulls a fast one on a corrupt cop to earn an extra buck.

Ajay Devgan is pretty likeable in a performance that wouldn't have registered without ample support from his sidekick Mukesh Tiwari, who gets to deliver some of the best lines.

Ayesha Takia looks cute in a role that doesn't put great demands on her acting skills.

The music of 'Sunday' is average but the film could have done better without the song 'Loot Liya'. The cinematography is superb. There is a good stunt sequence on top of the houses of congested Chandni Chowk at the very beginning of the film. The car chase sequence in the second half is pretty ordinary.

'Sunday' should be seen mainly for its comedy and suspense. As the missing links fall in place and the dots are connected, the mystery becomes more and more engrossing. But director Rohit Shetty commits hara-kiri in the end. He doesn't care to explain to the viewer how the cop (Ajay Devgan) unraveled the mystery and figured out who the killer was. Shetty simply reveals the killer without any logical explanation.

Anyway, I didn't go expecting much logic or methodical approach from 'Sunday'. Because if you do so, my friend, then the joke is on you.

Music Review : Miss It (2/5)
When a music album draws on the talents of different music composers, you can either expect a rare treat or a pot-pourri of tunes without a common central theme. The latter happens to be the case with the music of 'Sunday'.With as many as six music directors, the music of 'Sunday' turns out ...
