at card games, and being a compulsive gambler, he then
goes on to bigger form of gambling leading him to a
syndicate of international betting on cricket matches.
Also, this fearless gambler woos and romances his lady
love in style.
At a shopping centre Arjun
falls in love at first sight with Zoya (Sonal Chauhan) who
is a call centre executive. While admiring a diamond ring,
Zoya's loses interest in the ring on seeing its price tag.
She moves on. Arjun all the while watching her, smashes
the glass to fetch the ring, in the process is caught by
the security guard and handed over to the police.
This chance meeting with Zoya
gives him the reasons he was looking for to move out of
his ordinary life. He steps up from playing small-time
card games to becoming a bookie. Stuck in a triangle of
sorts between the woman he loves and his addiction to make
a quick buck, Arjun starts making money betting on cricket
matches. Using his instincts, he makes more money, pays
off his debts to a ruthless local money lender. He is
encouraged and pushed (willingly) into the world of match
fixing, since he always craved to make big money.
Arjun and Zoya are expecting a child. Mumbai Police
detectives land up in South Africa to bust the
international betting racket. Arjun is in focus and kept
on watch. Being an impulsive gambler, having dreams of

expected child, Arjun decides to take the last chance of
Music director Pritam is credited with two most memorable
songs - Char Din ki lambi judai… and Jara si dil mein
jagah de tu.
Sonal Chauhan in her debut
film is charming and acts well. The handsome boy next door
Emraan Hashmi has come out with the first big solo hit in
his career. The role suits him and he is appropriate as
the compulsive gambler. Vipin Sharma is the typical middle
class father with ethics. Vishal Malhotra is apt in his
role as Arjun's best friend, Samir Kochar as the Mumbai
cop is another good discovery for Bollywood. Hope to see
more of Samir Kochar. Jawed Sheikh appears as almost a
real Don who is just remarkable.
