PP (Pulkit Samrat) and AIDS (Bilal Amrohi) are friends and journalists working for a news channel, which is helmed by Monsoon (Sarah-Jane Dias). As our two protagonists get fired for their incompetence, they stumble upon a political scam. Meanwhile, a CBI officer is murdered and PP and AIDS happen to get hold of his body. As PP and AIDS try hard to get hold of the story that will be their ticket to fame, dangerous politicians try to squash them.
The subject is interesting especially when it is timed so close to the elections. However, the execution fails miserably on every level. The story is haphazard with too many loopholes. There are only very few genuinely funny moments scattered in the midst of lame slapstick gags that are rather irritating. The characters are devoid of any detailing or dimension. Many scenes are loosely borrowed from the cult classic Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro. Having said that, the makers have shamelessly turned them into something massively brainless. The innovative abuses by Kilol (Vijay Raaz) are probably the only good dialogues.
Pulkit Samrat could have been good if his character was memorable in some way. Nevertheless, he tries his best. Bilal Amrohi could not have been worse! His performance could easily feature amongst the worst debuts in Bollywood. Sarah-Jane Dias looks good but she is hardly believable as the head of a news channel (in what part of India do news channel chiefs dress like that?!!). Anupam Kher has been wasted in a role that is way beneath his ability. Vijay Raaz shines through with a brilliant performance. He is the only one who is truly hilarious in this so-called comic satire.
The director fails to hold the film together in the first half. Towards the end, the climax too, is no saving grace. The songs could have been completely done away with as they pop up unnecessarily. On the whole, the film is largely disappointing. We would give this one many slaps, with a clap reserved only for Vijay Raaz.
