Madhur from CHANDNI BAR started making realistic films, which some people called dry He made SATTA which was another realistic though filmy film but a great filmAAN men at work was a formula film by him which floppedHe returns with his superlative PAGE 3A film which dwelves into the lives of journalists and it's a brilliant filmThe film is well narrated though the half baked romantic portions of Konkana could be avoided but that is forgivenThe entire Upendra Limaye track is superb toowhile the Atul Kulkarni track is great tooThe dial between Manoj Joshi and his friends are funny at first but repetitive at timesThe subplot of Bikram- Tara is brilliant and so is the entire hospital scene and also the final child abuse which shocks youThe film has a open ended ending which is nicely handledMadhur does a great job Music is okayKonkana excels as Madhavi, using her expressions to the best Tara Sharma is decent except her voice Sandhya Mridul is good as usual Upendra Limaye excels in his part as the cop, one of the talented actors Sadly he isn't used well nowdays Atul Kulkarni too is good in his small part Boman Irani is restrained and does a great job rest are okay

The film is an expose of 'page 3' culture but it feels repetitive and monotonous.

What ended up most intriguing (to this European viewer, at least) was the glimpse provided into the astonishingly westernised world of the Indian elite; and the strange, Anglo-Hindi hybrid tongue in which they speak.

She was too bland.

Worth watching once .

His next film Page 3 was one of the worst movies of all time.
