Raat Gayi Baat Gayi (2009)
The One Night Stand is never ever just a one night stand.It either erupts into a huge, life altering explosion or quietly morphs into a dangerously disruptive, scary, horripilatory experience that makes you wish you never went to bed again with a stranger.In fact, you sometimes wish you never went to bed again with anyone.Pritish Nandy Communications presents RAAT GAYI BAAT GAYI, just one of those films where sex does matters.A Rajat Kapoor production this romantic comedy is directed by Saurabh Shukla.Jointly having the brilliant ensemble cast of Neha Dhupia, Rajat Kapoor and Vinay Pathak the movie is scheduled to be release on 31st Dec 2009.
Saurabh Shukla’s take on this is unique. RAAT GAYI BAAT GAYI is a whodunit on a one night stand that could have been. No one knows for sure if it actually happened. Clever, funny, incredibly refreshing, this is a film that will keep you guessing all the way through.
The modern urban society is in a transitory phase to find a new definition. So, it’s going through a constant moral-value change. While taboos of yester-years are ‘trying’ to become the norm, the very deep-rooted past is resisting it. This bouquet of contradictions makes the society vibrant but complex.
This film is about characters from our society and the funny situations stemming from the never-ending differences, between Men and Women.
Character Sketch:Neha Dhupia as Sophia – Is the stereotypical femme fatale. An inspiring actor who holds everybody’s attention at the party but remains distant and aloof. Her character is like a jigsaw puzzle in the film, which slowly unfolds through a series of interesting interactions with the men she meets.
Rajat Kapoor as Rahul – An AD Film Maker and a perfect family man. He and mitali have been married for eight years now and they have a beautiful daughter that he dotes upon. Rahul is loyal to his friends, socially successful and charming. A single encounter with a mysterious woman changes a lot of things he would formerly assume as established facts about himself and his married life.
Iravati Harshe as Mitali – An intelligent modern urban woman and a professional sculptor. Married to a loving husband, Rahul, she gave up her career for her marriage and believes she has chosen well. She wants to work, but feels guilty about ignoring her husband and child. What happens at the party, the night before, could subvert the many truths of her life.
Vinay Pathak as Amit – Is almost a prototype of the regular Indian male. He hides from his wife and watches porn, but is also clumsy enough not to cover his tracks. Through the film we see him as a character hoping to undo the damage and en passant, also provides a comic relief, because deep down he believes he hasn’t really wronged his wife Nandini and his apologies are both profuse and insincere.
Anu Menon as Nandini – Is married to Amit. The strain in their relationship begins when she catches him watching porn. She sees it as an indication of a failure of their relationship. She hopes to talk about it to her friends, Jolly and Mitali.
Dilip Tahil as Saxena – Is a middle aged writer who has had his movements of glory, fame and success. He is polished and articulate and has a penchant for philosophizing. Some people say that he married for money, that could be true-but he is the life of every party. He is the intellectual that everyone wants to be with whereas Jolly is often the butt of many jokes.
Navneet Nishan as Jolly – Is Saxena’s wife who has aspirations towards intellectuality has a Mrs. Malaprop like predilecton for impressing upon others by dishing out funny instances of her half baked knowledge. She is frivolous and gullible, flighty and loud but an endearing person despite her fallings when she insists upon helping the people around her.
3 couples. An 8 year old marriage and a 1 night stand to end all others. Percept Picture Company & PNC presents a Rajat Kapoor production of the year’s most outrageously funny comedy that starts with a night of questions and ends up in bed with zero answers!
RAAT GAYI BAAT GAYI catches Rahul (Rajat Kapoor) waking up on a very heavily hung-over morning with his wife Mitali’s (Iravati Harshe) constant cribbing. Whilst her voice crashes through his head he remembers snatches of a conversation he had the previous night, at a party, with a stunning young woman, Sophia (Neha Dhupia). As he blinks through his thoughts he stumbles on the fact that one thing led to another and Sophia and he got drunk, talked a lot and finally ended up in bed making crazy love to each other—or did they? The end of the night remains hazy.
What’s worse is that Mitali just can’t seem to keep it together around him-she’s livid, she’s upset, she’s not telling him why—all rolled into one and Rahul keeps thinking back to the previous night and wondering if she caught a whiff of what happened the previous night with Sophia.
As Rahul chases his night for answers, his friends Saxena (Dalip Tahil) and Amit (Vinay Pathak) are suffering through their own marital crises! This one’s an outlandish comedy from the team of BHEJA FRY that promises no dull moments!
