Directed by Onir, Shab is a really bad film. Anything goes without making any sense.
Mohan (Ashish Bisht) is a small town guy who wants to make it big in Delhi’s modeling circuit. He ends up being the ‘toy boy’ of a married Delhi socialite, Sonal Modi (Raveena Tandon). Chef Neil (Areesz Ganddi) has a boyfriend who uses and manipulates him. Raina (Arpita Pal) works as a waitress in Neil’s café and looks after her young school-going sister. Raina’s neighbor Benoit (Simon Frenay) teaches French to the students and also works in as a waiter. They are all dealing with their own set of issues and most of their paths collide at different points during the film.
If there’s one word to describe the film, it is inexplicable. Most of the characters and their intentions are unfathomable. There’s no depth. You lose interest after the initial few moments. It’s a complete drag. The only saving graces are its background score, a few songs, and an inconvenient end.
The characters are not sketched out well, and it shows in the performances of actors. Raveena Tandon is decent. Areesz Ganddi acts well. Ashish Bisht has a lot to learn. Arpita Pal is quite impressive. Simon Frenay is okay.
Shab has nothing much to offer apart from boredom. We give it 2 stars with a kink.
