#MumbhaiConnection Rating: *  An interesting plot idea  run asunder by some Amateurish ‘Execution’ & poor performances. About a salesman coming up with an outsourcing plan for the Mafioso, it gets needlessly embroiled in existential dilemmas and loses the plot! #RafiqBatcha #AtlantaNagendra #Cinepolis #ShamrockPR #Shantanu #Vedant #SandeepMalani



Hindi Film Review

Total Disconnect


Film: Mumbhai Connections
Cast: Rafiq Batcha, Alieesa P Badresia, Srini Tyamagondlu
Director: Atlanta Nagendra
Rating: *

What’s with this penchant that NRI’s have for Bollywood fame and glory? This film ‘Mumbhai Connection’ is produced by a NRI who also stars as the main lead in the film, directed by two-hit kannada films old Atlanta Nagendra. This is basically a Hinglish film where the characters speak in a mixed lingo familiar to those from the cities. Propelled by an interesting plot idea- one of a registered IT company providing back-end ‘execution’ activities for the Mafioso clients they’ve been hitherto providing website services to, this film fails to justify that initial promise in it’s unappealing amateurish narrative.
The best salesman of Atlanta Faisal Khan(Rafiq Batcha) loses his job, inexplicably, and sets about on a job hunt before his H1B visa expires. Lucky for him he bumps into an old friend at a desi party, who offers him a sales manager’s position at BA-IT. Without further ado, Faisal is well ensconced in the job and searching for clients. But none are forthcoming. In the interim he realizes that the company he is working for provides services to the Mafioso. Since his job is once again on the line, along with his lady love Tara(Alieesa) and his family in India, he has to come up with an idea that will boost BA-IT’s business and set him free to live his life away from the shadow of crime. Things get murkier when Kal(Srini Tyamagondlu), his immediate boss informs the owner of the company, a Don in Mumbai referred to as Bhai, that Faisal is involved in a double-cross. The free for all melee at the end is par for the course.

There’s not much coherence in the narrative with the script going all over the place without fleshing out appropriate reasons for what transpires on screen. The takes are shoddy, the dialogues and delivery pretty much agonizing and the performances, distinctly amateurish. The background score and music is also not very appealing. This one should have been a straight-to-video product.
