After Gangster and Murde, Anurag Basu is back with his new film Life In a Metro . It’s UTV who shall be producing the film and not Anurag’s favorite Bhatt clan. Metro has a horde of talented but not so very big stars. Wait a minute Metro, does have Shilpa Shetty, who until yesterday was nobody but thanks to Big Brother, she has become an icon. So Metro does seem to be an exciting offering with a gripping emotional story tale.

( Spoilers Included Read at Your Own Risk)

The world is becoming smaller. Cell phones have cut down distances. Low cost airlines have got cities closer. There’s less time for breakfast. Even lesser time for dinner. And no time for lunch. The sensex is rising. Malls in every corner. Multiplexes, the only way to watch movies. The seven year itch has come down to seven months. Or lesser. Depending on how ambitious one is. We are getting bored too soon. Too many choices. Too many dreams. Not enough sleep.

Rahul (Sharman Joshi) is one such young man with dreams. Working as a call centre executive in a BPO in Mumbai. He silently loves his boss, Neha (Kangana Ranaut). A smart young woman who has made it up the ranks in a very short time. And hard work is not her only secret. Because her boss, Ranjeet (KayKay Menon) loves her and is willing to shower her with gifts and opportunities… only if she is willing.

Metro Movie

In his 30s, Ranjeet is married to Shikha (Shilpa Shetty) with a six year old son. Shikha is very well educated and was a better student that Ranjeet. But they decided that she should stay back at home and take care of the house and the kid. So Ranjeet ventured out on his quest for money and success… and forgot his family somewhere on the way. And bitterness and boredom crept into their relationship. Soon he found solace and a fresh lease of life in Neha. An exciting, non-committal relationship based on sex.

Neglected by an indifferent husband and bogged down by family chores, Shikha is soon attracted to a maverick in Akash (Shiney Ahuja). A loser and a rebel without a cause, Akash is a struggling theatre artist whose wife divorces him… because she cannot stand his failures anymore. Akash and Shikha’s love blossoms and she almost crosses her limits that she has so fervently guarded all these years.

Amol is a 70 year old man who’s returned to India after 40 years. To spend last few years of his life with his first love, Vaijanti. This lady lives in an old age home and is Shikha’s aunty who gives moral strength to Shikha.

Shikha’s sister and Neha’s room-mate, Shruti (Konkona Sen Sharma) works in at Radio Mirchi. A producer. In her 30′s and still a virgin, she’s desperate to get married. She is dreamy eyed about her RJ, Wishy K (Gautam Kapoor). Her boss hooks her up with Wishy K. While she also meets Debu (Irrfan Khan) through a matrimonial site. Hates him. But Debu, an ordinary man, is ready to marry her. Her affair with Wishy K blossoms.

Rahul is extremely ambitiously and discovers the easiest way to success. Rather the key to success. The key to his uncle’s opulent apartment where he stays while his uncle is away. Most of the men in his office look for places to take their mistresses, girlfriends or prostitutes. He provides the perfect place to release their libido. His apartment. The cost? A recommendation for his out of turn promotion. Even Ranjeet gets the key and takes Neha to the apartment.

Amidst one of their escapades Neha asks Ranjeet about their future. A commitment? Ranjeet makes it clear that she should not even think of a commitment. He insults her and leaves. She tries to commit suicide. Rahul discovers her in his apartment and takes care of her, They share some loving moments… come closer but still she’s unsure about him.

Vaijanti Aunty dies. Amol Uncle goes back. Leaving behind the lesson and importance of undying love for Shikha. Shruti discovers that Wishy K is a gay. Leaves office. Joins Debu’s office. She proposes to Debu at his wedding. But then runs away suddenly. Ranjeet confesses his love for Neha to Shikha. So she confesses her love for Akash. Ranjeet gets upset and leaves home. Akash writes to Shikha that he’s leaving the country and she can join him if she wants. Rahul is disillusioned with the way the metro has treated him and is leaving town. Neha realises her folly and chases him to the station. Shikha chases Akash. Debu chases Shruti. They all meet or cross each other at the railway station. And go ahead on their own paths. With lives they wanted. Or whatever the metro had destind for them.

I found the movie story really very interesting. What do you guys think? With a great director present and Pritam’s Roacking music and the over hyped Shilpa Shetty’s presence the movie is sure to see the cash counters ringing.
