Film: Sunday

Sehar Thapar (Ayesha Takia) is a bit forgetful. So much so that she misplaces the whole day after a friend and hers visit to a disco. Add to this a crooked yet endearing cop, a hilarious taxi driver and his best friend and, oh yes, a couple of murders to the mix and you're set up for two and a half hours of thrills and mystery.

And yet there seems to be something missing from this film - perhaps even the plot itself! The film doesn't quite manage to link together its quite good parts, and as a result at times it doesn't quite make sense and at others it seems a bit forced.

Still, Sunday does manage to be entertaining despite the shallowness - possibly even because of it. Genuinely laugh out loud funny throughout, I really do wonder whether this film should have been billed a comedy instead. It's worth watching just for the humour.

Otherwise the production and acting are adequate (although the more I see of Ayesha the more put off I am; but on that note check out her sidekick Anjana Sukhani), with the action and music a bit strange and overcooked. I don't quite recommend you watch Sunday, but if you do, just don't go in expecting anything more than some good old slapstick.
