Movie Review: Table No. 21 (2013)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Below Avg.

“If you lie, you die… you die.” Cheesy as it may sound, there are some really good flicks made on that clichéd line (I haven’t repeated the “you die” for effect, it’s verbatim from the movie) with the brilliant Phone Booth being the most memorable. However, Table No. 21 tries hard to be a psychological thriller but ends up being a me-too, and then ruins things further with a social message type ending.

An ostensibly happy and loving couple Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Sia (Tena Desae) win a free vacation trip to Fiji. While enjoying the exotic locales, they meet Abdul Razak Khan (Paresh Rawal), a mysterious billionaire, who operates a live game website. Khan offers the couple a chance of a lifetime- to win a whopping sum of Rs. 21 crores by participating in a game loosely based on the ‘truth and dare’ game.

Needless to say, the couple is intrigued and tempted and accepts the offer. Though the game seems interesting and fun initially, the rules get weirder as the game progresses and finally, Vivaan and Sia realise that they might not be able to exit the game alive…What happens next? Will the couple escape with their lives? Who is Khan and how does he know everything about the couple’s past? To figure out all this, do watch the movie…
