Raat Gayi Baat Gayi (Hindi)
3 couples. An 8 year old marriage and a 1 night stand to end all others. Pritish Nandy Communications presents, the year's most outrageously funny comedy that starts with a night of questions and ends up in bed with zero answers!
Raat Gayi Baat Gayi catches Rahul (Rajat Kapoor) waking up on a very heavily hung-over morning with his wife Mitali's (Iravati Harshe) constant cribbing. Whilst her voice crashes through his head he remembers snatches of a conversation he had the previous night, at a party, with a stunning young woman, Sophia (Neha Dhupia). As he blinks through his thoughts he stumbles on the fact that one thing led to another and Sophia and he got drunk, talked a lot and finally ended up in bed making crazy love to each other---or did they? The end of the night remains hazy.
What's worse is that Mitali just can't seem to keep it together around him, she's livid, she's upset, she's not telling him why --- all rolled into one and Rahul keeps thinking back to the previous night and wondering if she caught a whiff of what happened the previous night with Sophia. As Rahul chases his night for answers, his friends Saxena (Dalip Tahil) and Amit (Vinay Pathak) are suffering through their own marital crises! This one's an outlandish comedy from the team of Bheja Fry that promises no dull moments!
3 Idiots (Hindi)
Two friends [Madhavan and Sharman Joshi] embark on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey, they encounter a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash, and a funeral that goes impossibly out of control. As they make their way through the perilous landscape, another journey begins: their inner journey through memory lane and the story of their friend--the irrepressible free-thinker Rancho [Aamir Khan], who in his unique way, touched and changed their lives.
It's a story of their hostel days that swings between Rancho's romance with the spirited Pia [Kareena Kapoor], and his clash with an oppressive mentor, Viru Sahastrabudhhe [Boman Irani]. And then one day, suddenly, Rancho vanished. Who was he? Where did he come from? Why did he leave? The friend who influenced and inspired them to think creatively and independently, even as the conformist world called them three idiots. Where is the original idiot now? Finally, in misty mountains of unparalleled beauty, the friends find the key to the secret.
Three Idiots is a comedy of ideas that is as provocative as it is funny, as wildly entertaining as it is insightful. A laugh-riot that talks about the most important of human pursuits: self-actualization.
Rocket Singh (Hindi)
Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir Kapoor) has just graduated, and his marks are, well, letâ€™s say a little embarrassing. But marks never stopped him from dreaming of an exciting and adventurous career, and they never will.
He takes a deep, positive breath and dives into the world of sales, rumoured to be an ultra cool career for all smart people blocked from entering medical, engineering or business schools by brainless entrance exams. Itâ€™s everything he dreamt of, with its smooth dressing, moother talking men and women who can sell ice to an Eskimo, dreams to an insomniac, and a lifetime mobile connection to a dying man. But soon, his idea of success begins clashing with the strange ways of these â€˜professionalsâ€™ he looked up to.
â€œRocket Singh - Salesman of the Yearâ€ is the sometimes thoughtless, sometimes thoughtful story of a fresh graduate trying to find a balance between the maddening demands of the â€˜professionalâ€™ way, and the way of his heart â€“ and stumbling upon a crazy way which turned his world upside down, and his career right side up.
Welcome to the world of sales boss!
