Barah Aana - first look

Barah Aana, a comedy of real life, revolves around a driver, watchman, and waiter who accidentally stumble into a crime and then realize it's not a bad business.

Barah Aana is a comedy of real life, set in today's Mumbai.  The story revolves around three unlikely friends:  a driver (Naseeruddin Shah), a watchman (Vijay Raaz), and a waiter (Arjun Mathur). 

The driver is an older man, stoic but dependable.  The watchman, in his 30s, is a pushover at work but otherwise mischievous.  The waiter is a young, swaggering chap, brimming with ambition.  Living together, their different attitudes make for interesting banter.

At some point, misfortune befalls the watchman and, due to a series of chance events, he stumbles into a crime.  Striking upon a seemingly low-risk way to make good money, and discovering a new sense of self-confidence, he tries to entice the others to join him in a series of such crimes. 

Cat and mouse games ensue between the three as personalities change, but events soon spiral out of control, leading them in a direction none of them had wanted to take…


Featuring a talented ensemble cast, Barah Aana is based on an original script.  The running time is 97 minutes.
