One night stand- Ashdoc’s movie review

Tanuj Virvani’s career and family life is going great guns. He is at a high salary position in his company and waiting for him at home is a hot and sexy wife, Nyra Bannerjee.

But at a work related trip to Thailand he is mesmerized by the ultimate seductress-Sunny Leone. His friends egg him on to seduce her and he charms his way into her bedroom. Not just her bedroom but also her couch and her bathtub. And they bathe together, lie together and make love. And when Sunny Leone makes love then a man reaches nirvana or heaven. A heaven that other women like the hero’s wife just cannot help a man reach. And from then on Tanuj is hooked/addicted. Addicted to that endless fountain of pleasure that is Sunny Leone.

But Sunny does not tell him her real name or address. Like a dream that can come only once in a lifetime she disappears before he has woken up. He remembers her like an angel that has come to give him heavenly bliss. And he can’t let go of her from his mind. He just can’t!

But things just do not stop here. When he returns home he is confronted by the fact that Sunny is his client’s wife and she has a child to boot.

From then on begins Tanuj’s path of obsession. He begins to chase Sunny relentlessly from pillar to post. He begins to lose concentration at work, get angry at his colleagues, shouts at his wife and begins to imagine all women including his wife Nyra as Sunny. Even Forces marital rape on Nyra in a drunken state thinking that she is Sunny.

But on reaching and entering Sunny’s home he finds that she is a dutiful wife and daughter in law who is also an attentive mother to her child. That like him she has made a mistake in embarking on a one night stand. That she accuses him of stalking her.

So what will happen between Tanuj and Sunny Leone? What about Nyra- will she take things lying down? and I mean literally.

Because both the writer and the director of the film are women, we get to hear some dialogues as to why should only women be looked down upon by society on embarking on one night stands when men are equally responsible. But the climax leads nowhere as both the writer and the director seem clueless as to how to end the film.

On the other hand photography and colours of the film are great and all the three main characters are looking great. But body exposure by Sunny is less than in her other films. Music and songs are a treat to listen to. Acting is okay by everyone .


Two stars

Note: Expect more movies on similar themes as Bollywood would like to popularize both one night stands as well as build massive support to push for marital rape law.
