Celebs laud Table No. 21

TNN | Jan 4, 2013, 12.00 AM IST
 
 
Table No. 21 producer Viki Rajani along with director Aditya Datt showcased their film to a select section of the film fraternity that has been almost unanimous in its praise, calling the film a concept drama that is high on content. Viki and Aditya are extremely happy with the response the film has been garnering. Here is what the industry has to say about the film starring Rajeev Khandelwal, Paresh Rawal and Tena Desae.

Sonam Kapoor: This movie shows you that high concept films are here to stay. One of the most on-the-edge thrillers I have seen in recent times with surprises throughout.

Kangana Ranaut: I was blown away by the concept and performances of all the characters. I haven't see a thriller with so many moments and a really surprising climax. I am sure it is going to leave a huge impact on the audiences.

Neil Nitin Mukesh: I congratulate the team of the film. It is brilliant in content, treatment, execution and the performances, especially Paresh Rawal's.

Sonakshi Sinha: It's a very well made film and kept me engaged all through. More concept driven films like these should be encouraged. Pareshji and Rajeev were outstanding and the film has such an interesting climax which unfortunately I can't reveal! After a long time I have seen a gripping thriller with an unexpected twist in the story.

Prabhudheva: I really enjoyed this thriller including the songs and I'm confident it will touch the right chord with the audiences.

Arjun Rampal: This film is a refreshing change, Paresh is in top form.

Table No. 21, presented by Eros International and produced by NextGen Films, releases today.

Table No 21: Movie Review

Rating:
3.0/5
 
 

The year 2013 starts with Aditya Datt's latest movie Table No. 21, that features Paresh Rawal, Tena Desae and Rajeev Khandelwal in the leads. Table No 21, that releases today, isn't a big budget movie, but, ha created some buzz for it's promising subject.

Story:

Table No. 21 is an action thriller, that revolves around the life of a middle-class couple Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya Agasthi (Tena Desae). The couple win a chance to make a trip to the beautiful islands of Fiji. They get to stay in one of the finest resorts in Fiji, free of cost. Everything seemed really great, until the couple met the charming Mr. Khan (Paresh Rawal). This is when Mr Khan ask them to play the 'tell all truth' game that he hosts. The best part about this game was that the winner would get a staggering 21 crores. The couple takes up the challenge. The game kick starts with the couple performing impressively well, managing to both speak the truth as well as complete the tasks thrown at them. As the game proceeds, the questions and tasks become more intense, demanding and surprisingly personal, relating to significant parts of their lives. What happens next? Will Vivaan and Siya be able to win the game?

Performances so far:

Paresh Rawal stuns us with a completely new avatar in the movie. He does a brilliant job as the charming Mr. Khan in Table No 21. After his critically acclaimed performance in the film Aamir, Rajeev Khandelwal is back in another different role in Table No 21. Rajeev does a good job in the movie. On the other hand, Tena Desae too does an OK kind of job in the film.

Verdict so far:

Table No. 21 impresses us with an unusual and interesting concept. On the whole, the movie a little slow-paced, yet, has lots to say.

                    Table No. 21
            
             By Taran Adarsh, 4 Jan 2013, 09:54 hrs IST
 
             Ratings- 3.5/5
 
 
Films like KAHAANI, TALAASH, also most films helmed by Abbas-Mustan had this uncharacteristic quality of keeping the spectator on tenterhooks till the last frame. A taut thriller demands that the spectator stay vigilant, is all eyes and ears as the story unfolds, becomes a participant while the mind games are being played by the characters on screen... TABLE NO. 21, directed by Aditya Datt, which sets the ball rolling in 2013, truly symbolizes a riveting thriller.

It's not just the premise that grabs your attention, but TABLE NO. 21 stands out because it doesn't borrow the formulaic template, nor does it rely on the predictable twists and turns or caricaturist characters to enthrall the spectator. It's clever, engaging and carries a message that hits you like a ton of bricks. Importantly, it's a well crafted thriller that delivers more than what it promised in its attention-grabbing promos.

Vivaan [Rajeev Khandelwal] and Siya [Tena Desae] win a fully-paid-for vacation to Fiji. Once there, they are invited to dine at a plush resort, making their wedding anniversary truly special. The owner of the resort -- the suave Mr. Khan [Paresh Rawal] -- offers them to partake in a reality game show. The prize money? A staggering Rs 21 crores.

Eight questions. Honest and straightforward answers. Not quitting the game show till the eight questions are answered... Vivaan and Siya grab the opportunity instantaneously. But the game is not as uncomplicated as they think. Vivaan and Siya feel trapped as the game advances, but they can't quit it midway. The mystery deepens... Who's Mr. Khan? Why is he playing this game? Or is he playing with their lives?

While the basic premise of TABLE NO. 21 is fascinating, intriguing enough for a suspense thriller setup, the screenwriting packages a series of realistic sequences and episodes that catch you unaware. What starts off as a love story gradually transforms into serious stuff and the suspense and drama plays on your mind even after you've made an exit from the dark auditorium. A slick thriller, the film makes you uneasy [towards the conclusion] due to the stark reality it portrays and that, in my opinion, is one of the triumphs of the film.

Director Aditya Datt pulls off the innovative concept with lan, as the game as well as the back stories leave you gasping for breath. You might draw parallels with some Hollywood movies, but the message it drives home and the way it terminates makes the viewer in you satiated. While one is itching to describe a few sequences and unravel the course of the film during the penultimate stages, it would be unfair on my part to spill the beans. The beauty of the film will be to watch it without knowing anything and absorbing it like a sponge, since it's a film about characters and conflict with a big revelation. I'd like to make a special mention of its writing [story-screenplay: Shantanu Ray and Sheershak Anand; additional screenplay and dialogue: Abhijeet Deshpande], which leaves no scope for loopholes. In fact, like I pointed at the very outset, the writing demands that you stay alert and attentive, else you might lose chunks in the plot. The sole deterrent is its slow pacing in its first hour.

DoP Ravi Walia captures the scenic beauty of Fiji with proficiency. The narrative boasts of just two songs and both fit well in the scenario of things. The background score [Amar Mohile] enhances the impact. The editor [Devendra A. Murdeshwar] has cut the film very well, with not a single sequence overstaying its welcome.

Paresh Rawal gets another author-backed role after OMG - OH MY GOD and though you may label it grey or black on the basis of what you may have witnessed in its promos, the actor sees to it that the character doesn't get stereotypical or hackneyed thanks to his faultless acting abilities. His character changes colors rapidly, like a chameleon changes colors, taking the film to its peak towards the closing stages.

Rajeev Khandelwal's choice of movies is worth applauding. The actor cannot be accused of getting repetitive since his choice of movies has been as diverse as chalk and cheese. The talented actor portrays a complex character in this film and I must add, he gets the part spot-on. A persuasive screen presence and effortless acting consistently makes this character work and how! Tena Desae is a revelation. Extremely photogenic, the character must have been a challenge of sorts for the actress and Tena handles it most courageously and confidently, getting into the skin of her character. Hanif Hilal doesn't get any lines to deliver, but his imposing persona and silence stays with you. Dhruv Ganesh is striking towards the final moments of the film. Asheesh Kapoor is alright.

On the whole, TABLE NO. 21 is a commendable movie-going experience. If you are an extremely choosy moviegoer who watches select first-rate films a year, make sure TABLE NO. 21 is included on your listing. Strongly recommended!

Table No. 21' review: Going by the rules or without ' not one to be missed!
 
Last Updated: Friday, January 04, 2013, 13:51
 
 
Ananya Bhattacharya

'Table No. 21' might just be director Aditya Datt's ticket to fame: fame of the pure, unadulterated kinds. His earlier outings as a director ' films such as 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne', 'Dil Diya Hai' and 'Good Luck!' ' weren't able to make much of an impact on either the audience or critics. However, with this film, Datt has undone all of his earlier lukewarm ventures, one might say. With a script that smells of fresh dew on grass, deals with an issue that is way more grave and at the end of the day, blends together an entire gamut of emotions from rage to sorrow, director Aditya Datt has carved to perfection a story that could have gone miserably haywire had it been dealt with in any different manner. Happily for all of us, the film steers clear of all of that.

 
The film has the elements of thrill ' intense at the lower end of the spectrum and spine-chilling at the higher. It cleverly, beautifully builds up a story, goes forth strewing numerous hints during its course and all of them are marvellously tied together in the end. No loose end acts as an impediment in the script ' and every single moment makes sense.

Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya (Tena Desae) Agasthi are a couple who, when the film begins, are on cloud nine. They are on board a flight to the Fiji Islands ' a holiday which the lady has won. The exotic seascape of Fiji combined with the extraordinarily mesmerising locales make for a visionary treat. The couple enjoy their vacation and on their fifth wedding anniversary, are greeted by a bouquet of surprises ' from Khan (Paresh Rawal), the owner of the resort where Vivaan and Siya have been staying.

Khan comes across as a congenial host in the beginning, only to deliver the sinister, downright scary side of himself later on in the film. Khan presents the couple with a unique offer ' he asks them to participate in a one-of-a-kind game which consists of eight questions, a task after each question and a prize money of 21 crores for the winners. The game is watched by millions of viewers on Khan's website, thereby making it a game played ' and enjoyed ' in front of eight million pairs of voyeuristic eyes. The smooth beginning of the game slowly transforms into a frightening nightmare and Vivaan and Siya see themselves falling defenceless, bit by bit, down into the abyss of Khan's diabolical game.

In a game, only rules exist. Every single time the semi-bald, cunning Khan opens his mouth, Rawal delivers a finesse which probably only he could have done. Comedy is Paresh Rawal's forte, undoubtedly. But give him a role as dark and devilish as this one, and he performs it with remarkable lan. Rawal is a brilliant actor, a superbly versatile one, and his creepy avatar of Khan is another powerful negative character to have come out of the villains' stable of Bollywood in recent times. Just that by the end of the film, one is left with a gasp. Datt's story tears to shreds the stereotypes of good and bad, brutally smashes the watertight compartments of ethics and morality, and ruthlessly drives his point home.

Playing along with the brilliant story is an earnest, skilful Rajeev Khandelwal. From his 'Kahiin To Hoga' days to 'Table No. 21', through 'Aamir' and 'Shaitan', Khandelwal has taken himself higher up the performance ladder. In this film, Rajeev has proven, yet again, the limit to which his acting skills reach, which ' no doubts about that ' is the sky. The unemployed, frustrated-at-times, doting husband with many shades of grey, Rajeev's Vivaan is a character that doesn't fall short of performing perfection on screen, at any point whatsoever.

Tena Desae, on the other hand, is perhaps the only dampening factor in the film. As far as acting is concerned, she does a sort of decent job of playing Siya, Vivaan's financially independent wife who plays the part of the conventional 'man', earning bucks for the family. However, Desae could have done better by letting go of her utterly horrible accent. Her dialogue delivery might just have been better that way.

Gajendra Verma's music is soulful and the background score blends well with the story. The song 'Mann Mera' is a hummable one and stays on in the mind. The film doesn't have many songs, and that is another plus point. For in thrillers like 'Table No. 21', an abundance of songs does more harm than good.

In a nutshell, 'Table No. 21' might just be one film that is instrumental in turning the tables of the game around. In the Hindi film industry of the day, where a lot of mindless stuff is churned out under the guise of 'films' every year, Datt's thriller is one that is a welcome break. Go watch the film. It is worth every penny spent, worth every ounce of energy invested ' and even more.

Ratings- 3.5/5

Table No. 21 Movie Review :A Crazy Thriller film
 
 

Director Aditya Datt's latest venture Table No 21 hit the silver screens across the country on this Friday.

 
The film  is fascinating, intriguing enough for a suspense thriller setup and has realistic sequences that catch you unaware.

 

The suspense thriller based on a reality game show  like that of Sach a Samna (Its a game of a survival)sails through on the back of a strong script and powerful performances by its lead actors Rajeev Khandelwal and Paresh Rawal.

Aditya Datt has done a brillant  job with a Nail-Biting script and giving an interesting concept  that  starts  as a love story and  gradually transforms into serious thrilling  and the suspense after you've made an exit from the dark auditorium.

Cinegoers should prepare themselves for an edge-of-seat roller coaster ride of this 'Scary' and 'Thrilling' Kaun Banega Crorepati.

 

Paresh Rawal stuns us with a completely new avatar in the movie. He does a brilliant job as the charming Mr Khan in Table No 21.  Rajeev Khandelwal is back in another different role in Table No 21. Rajeev does a good job in the movie. On the other hand, Tena Desae too does an OK kind of job in the film.

 

 

The film is about a middle-class couple Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya (Tena Desae) who live a mediocre life & are thrilled to have won an exotic vacation to Fiji & their excitement increases when they get a chance to play "Tell all truth" game for a mind boggling prize money..

Soon their affair turns into a reality show for 8 million viewers on the internet. The couple is invited by Mr.Khan (Paresh Rawal) to Table No. 21, a live game show where 8 questions are asked, followed by a daunting task. There's a rapid fire round too and the prize money is INR 21 Crores. But, A Hitch.. If you speak one 'Lie', You Die.

 

The game begins & the couple discovers that the game isn't really a game but is a game of survival.

The game starts with the couple managing to both speak the truth as well as complete the tasks thrown at them. As the game proceeds, the questions and tasks become more intense, demanding and surprisingly personal, relating to significant parts of their lives.

But Vivaan and Siya  are reminded  that they cannot  quit the game midway  and they find themselves  stuck in a rut.

By the time they realize that their survival depends on the game, it's too late to do anything about it.
