A venture

Hastey-Hastey – A test of one’s patience

Posted by harino1 on May 31, 2008

‘Hastey Hastey’ comes in this week with debutant Nisha Rawal accompanied by Jimmy Shergill and a triple role by Rajpal Yadav.


Neel [Jimmy Sheirgill], a student at Columbia University, is in love with Maya [Nisha Rawal]. Sunny [Rajpal Yadav] is Neel’s room-mate and also his buddy. Neel accepts a career opportunity that requires him to go to India to set up a call centre business. Much against Maya’s wishes, Neel travels to India with Sunny.

Tanvi [Monishka Gupta] is a young executive who goes out of her way to help Neel and his team in India. She is instantly attracted to Neel and tries her best to win his heart. But Neel rejects Tanvi. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and Tanvi succeeds in making life miserable for Neel. How Neel comes out of it is the remainder of this misadventure.

‘Hastey Hastey’ is no doubt a very dull and weak plot. The story just puts you to sleep. The movie lacks miserably in terms of content. The movie offers zero laughter and would better be known as ‘Rothey Rothey’.

Right from the writing by some US based writer to the direction by Tony the film is an overdose of flaws which makes you get really irritated. The songs are an overdose and are just there for heck sake. Not a single track is registered and makes the film a never ending saga.

Nisha Rawal is just like a plastic Barbie doll, she struggles with the acting and her delivery is terrible. Monishkha too is dull and does nothing more than shedding her clothes.

Jimmy Shergill seems to have signed this movie while he was asleep.

Rajpal Yadav in a triple role! What were the writers and director thinking? Maybe they thought that one could escape with some ridiculous jokes by Rajpal Yadav. Rajpal too seems on a money making rollercoaster and needs to be very careful with the kind of movies he does. Rajpal too is terrible and what’s with the ridiculous clothes he’s wearing?

On the whole, ‘Hastey Hastey’ is a complete waste of time. It’s a test of one’s patience and is sure to be a washout with zilch comedy. The IPL matches are set to kill this venture.
