    I went to see this movie because the professional reviewers were going to town saying how good the movie is blah blah blah....

    On the other hand I being part of the common janta ( and you know what is the mindset of the janta ) was frankly enticed by the prospect of seeing an experienced older woman deflower a young college going boy's virginity , at least on screen---a promise that was held out by what i had heard about the film.

    A common comment made by young males about such adulterous ' aunties ' is---'' Where was she when I was in college ??!!!!! ''

    Indeed , it is every young male's dream to meet such an ' aunty ' who will give uninhibited pleasure without attachment and take him to the gates of heavenly carnal bliss .

    The movie blows away those dreams by exposing the dark underbelly of such dalliances with momentarily pleasure giving ' aunties ' and the hell that they can lead to....

    So our hero Mukesh ( played by Shadab Kamal ) loses his parents and comes under the guardianship of his kindly aunt in Delhi where he pursues his BA degree . He is only in first year of his BA course . His aunt's son does not like his presence however and there is constant friction between them . Besides this , his younger sisters are kept in a girl's hostel and Mukesh is their only protector .

    And to his aunt's kitty parties comes the delicious ' aunty ' Sarika ( played by Shilpa Shukla ) , who constantly begins to invite Mukesh to her house for some pretext .

    ......And when Mukesh finally goes to her house , what happens next made me ask the same question asked by untold men when they hear about the escapades of such ' aunties ' ---'' Where was she when I was in college ??!!!! ''

    .....For without further ado , Sarika takes Mukesh directly to bed and climbs on top of him and its '' Bang bang thank you young man ''.....
    Mind you , hardly any foreplay.....
    The sex is rough , direct and to the point .
    And it happens again and again....

    But before you start to think that at least one boy called Mukesh has unlocked the gates of heaven , reality comes hitting home....

    .....For Sarika sends him to another such ' aunty ' who forces him by means of threats to unwillingly have sex with her.....

    ......And the price and prize of such sex---money showered on Mukesh in copious amounts.....
    Mukesh has become nothing but a male prostitute---a gigolo !!
    He is now nothing but a piece of meat to be used and abused by other older women who devour such young boys .

    But fate has yet to strike its cruelest blow....
    When Mukesh comes to Sarika's house to safekeep the money he has earnt by peddling his body to women , Sarika's husband walks in only to see the horrific scene of his wife in bed with this boy....

    From then on is the path to catastrophe as things go from bad to worse to hellish in Mukesh's life.....

    The movie is dark and nightmarish and likely to put you into the dispair of depression.....

    Amongst all this depression Mukesh is aware that he has to also fend for his younger sisters---who are themselves under threat of being trafficked into the den of prostitution.....

    To save them Mukesh is ready to go to any lengths , any.....

    And the lengths Mukesh goes to save his sisters makes some really bad viewing....

    To be honest , some of the audience was in titters as Mukesh goes into the depths of depravity to earn some money....
    ......But I was not enjoying seeing these parts at all.....

    Mukesh's only friend in these times is a chess player named Johnney.....His only beacon of hope....

    So can Mukesh survive with the help of Johnney ?? And what about his sisters ?? Can he save them too ??
    Watch the movie for that...

    Or dont watch maybe.... For this is the kind of movie that can put you in a really bad mood after watching it.....

    The director creates a world of scheming lust filled older women and pimps and prostitutes and shady characters and fear of the law.....and the insight of this world fills you with foreboding.....
    You feel relived that you dont belong to THAT part of town but also ashamed that you lead comparitively secure lives while not caring about others who suffering.....

    .....And the plight of those who suffer is mot something that you would like to watch....

    Verdict---Dark and depressing ; not recommended .

    Sidenote---All those professional reviewers are saying the movie is good because it has a ' arty ' feel to it . There is something in it for the art movie lovers .
    But I am not such a highfundoo person , so please forgive me....

    If someone did not know Hindi, and probably will never see this film, would you be willing to say how it all turned out? That would not be a spoiler. It is not fair to leave some of hanging on the edge of the cliff.
