Hindi film by director Reema Kagti provides Bollywood noir that manages to hit the spot. Inspector Surjan Singh Shekhawat (Aamir Khan) is looking into the mysterious death of a film star and gets drawn into the underbelly of Mumbai’s red light district. He meets up with a sex worker, improbably played by Kareena Kapoor, probably the sexiest woman in the Indian film industry. The connection between the policeman and the prostitute will change both their lives. The film is a bit messy, but this works well with the material, allowing life’s jagged edges to disturb the muscular, controlled world of the protagonist, whose commitment to the case sees his career, and even his life, in jeopardy. Khan also sports a moustache that, for those unused to exuberant facial hair, assumes a life of its own in the film.
