Hindi film review
Johnson Thomas
Feckless whodunit
Film: Midsummer Midnight Mumbai(M3)
Cast: Sara Khan, Paras Chabbra, Milind gunaji, Kiran Kumar, Pooja Thakur,M.A.Guddu
Rating: * ½

The moniker has nothing much to do with the story being told, so that’s a negative in itself. The manner in which the narrative is structured, makes for a period of clueless wonder and even towards the end it remains that way. And this despite the contrived set0up and conveniently plottled development.
Sapna(Sara Khan) and Rahul(paras Chabra) are in love. To confuse matters, Nisha and Rahul are also shown in compromising positions. But several songs later we are given to understand that Nisha and Rahul’s sexual closeness is all in Nisha’s imagination. She is the one who helped Rahul get his ig break as a singer in her father’s music company. Then comes the clincher. Rahul is murdered on the day he was supposed to get engaged to Sapna.

The film in fct opnes with the scene of the crime with something which seems like Rahul’s apparition filing a complaint of his own murder. It’s a confounding piece of plotting and just a little curiosity spraks interest. But only for a short span. Once the truth is revealed you know that the script will go to any lengths to confuse and mislead. The songs are just about ok. The performances are all wooden and uninteresting. The characters are so badly drawn that you wouldn’t believe it if you saw it. At the end of it all you just feel incredulous that something like this had a financier willing to support it’s creation.
