Barah Aana directed by Raja Menon is a comedy film based on real life characters. The director of this film has picked up the life of three lower class group people, a driver, a watchman and a waiter to weave a tale of drama. The film is entertaining in few parts. The subject of the film is really unique. Director Raja Menon has takes a risk showing such a subject on big screen.
Barah Aana is a comic thriller that narrates the tale of three unlikely friends comprising of a stubborn but dependable driver Shuklaji (Naseeruddin Shah), a mischievous watchman Yadav (Vijay Raaz), and an ambitious waiter Aman (Arjun Mathur).
Driven by an unfortunate situation, Yadav stumbles upon a crime. On realizing that it is quiet a low risk way to make some extra money he lures his two pals Yadav and Shuklaji into it as well. But as money starts coming in all three of them start showing personality changes. Soon things start going out of hand and it all leads them individually to destinations that they had never planned.
Performance wise, Naseeruddin Shah does not have dialogues except towards the end, but his silence speaks a volume. Vijay Raaz is excellent. He has given a mindblowing performance. Arjun Mathur is competent. Violante Placido and Tannishtha Chatterjee are first-rate.
On the whole, Raja Menon's Barah Aana is a complete fun ride that delivers what it promises. The chemistry among all the three charters is worth praising.
