If you are supposed to see this film anytime soon please lose your tickets. For this roller coaster ride of Debashish Chatterjee who is desperate to lose his virginity is boring, predictable and uninteresting.


Although the idea that the story begins with is unique, one that hasn't been explored in Hindi films so far. And the look of the promos promised this one to be a film filled with funny moments. A humourous look at the irony of a 32-year-old virgin with no girl friend and no lover.


Rahul Bose is the perfect casting for this flick. He lends a distinctive dignity to the character alongwith physical and mental modifications in his acting style.


Rahul is obsessed with the fact that he still hasn't given his cherry to anyone and he so wants to do it. His desperation makes him resort to the doors of a sadhu baba - who looks like a fraud, talks like a fraud and sure is one too.


On the way, Rahul meets a flop D-grade film producer Saurabh Shukla who warns him about the Baba's ways. But Rahul puts his trust in the Baba and goes alongwith his remedy.


The office babe stars giving way to Rahul and he thinks it is Baba's medicine that is working - realising little that she was taking advantage of him for the purpose of work. Eventually he gets slapped when he tries to make a move at her.


Instead of moving on to different situations and different characters - the screenplay of the film keeps revolving around the same set of redundant characters who after a while neither amuse nor interest the viewers.


After about 70 per cent of the film is over and Rahul because of the breed of weird characters and their doings has lost his job and his PG accomodation - and it is then that he meets the heroine Perizaad.


Peri takes an instant liking to him to the extent that she offers to let him stay in her house. She needs an interview and he needs a shelter over his head. The arrangement works out perfectly.


They spend a lot of time together and when he tells her his sob story Peri instantly feels sorry for him and gradually falls in love with him. Hence leading to Rahul finally losing his virginity.


The story which involves the crooks then comes to a conclusion and drags. Also there is another character mentioned in passing who is a gay. First he makes a pass at Rahul, then befriends him and then breaks the news that he is HIV positive. And then Rahul is consumed by the news of his death.


The film gets into a predictable and boring rut which is miles away from the original thought of the film. Hence is boring to watch.


Rahul as said earlier is awesome. Perizaad lends a breath of fresh air to the otherwise dying screenplay. Saurabh is cute in the initial scenes but gets repetitive and the same goes for Vijay Raaz. It was nice to watch Asrani do his thing.


On the whole Mumbai Matinee can be easily missed.
