Cast: Kalki Koechlin, Shiv Pandit, Gulshan Devaiah
Five cokeheads decide to fake one of their own's kidnapping to bribe a police constable for covering up a hit-and-run accident. It becomes a media event with all of them presumed kidnapped and things turning ugly.
The film as a whole is a mess not necessarily in a bad way. The second half of the film works more like a commentary on the Indian news media circus and the Police. Plenty of stylish flourishes, some very good set-pieces in what is essentially a tiresome film at over two hours. It would have maybe worked out better if they kept the dark humor tone over the entire period of the film.
Hit and Run thing is getting a bit cliched and lazy. They could have come up easily with something else like getting caught with dope or something.
