Cricket. Match-fixing. Small-time crooks. Ensemble cast. Befitting.
Cyrus Broacha! Kunal Khemu. Soha Ali. Boman Irani. Perfect.
Backdrop: India-South Africa real series. The year: 1999.
Raj, DK wrote, directed . Sita Menon, third writer credited.
"One big score" theme. Treated street-smart. Young and fresh.
Sharp script. Deft direction. Smooth performances. Always at you.
Romantic angle. Comedy. Deceit. Twists, turns. Its got all !
Neat, dark cameos by Vinod Khanna and Mahesh Manjrekar.
Overall, brilliant. Must watch. Massively underrated. A rare gem.
This review is meant as a tribute to 99.
11 lines, 9 words each. This movie, a peach !
