Table No.21 SYNOPSIS

After working day and night to live a mediocre life, Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya Agasthi (Tena Desae) are thrilled to have won an all inclusive vacation to the exotic Fiji. Not only do they get to stay in a lavish hotel with a grand suite, the couple also receives an invitation for lunch to celebrate their wedding anniversary at one of the finest resorts in Suva, Fiji. The couples’ excitement only increases when they meet the very suave Mr. Khan (Paresh Rawal) at the restaurant who gives them a chance to play a “tell all truth” game for a mind boggling 21 crores.

The rules of the game are simple; answer 8 questions truthfully and complete the respected tasks and the money is all yours. Vivaan and Siya readily agree as they can take their winnings to Mumbai and live the life they both have always dreamed of.

The game begins; Vivaan and Siya are off to a great start answering each question right as well as completing the tasks successfully. However the as they proceed, the questions and tasks get more and more personal. Each question ironically ties back to an important chapter of their lives. Vivaan and Siya have had enough and choose to quit the game.

One important rule they forgot which Khan reminds them of, quitting is not an option. They both realize that the game isn’t really a game but the only way to survive is to complete the game. Who really is Khan? Will Vivaan and Siya survive the game and win 21 crores? Your reservation had been made at Table No.21; come find out and don’t be late!

This Table Will Find Takers

By MovieTalkies.com, 04 January 2013 3 / 5

Table No. 21 Review- In Short: A loving couple wins a free ticket to Fiji, where a mysterious millionaire offers them a chance of a lifetime…
 
Table No. 21 Review-Verdict: Though the film is not bad for a one-time watch, it does suffer from a predictable climax.
 
Table No. 21 Review-Story Plot: An ostensibly happy and loving couple Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Sia (Tena Desae) win a free vacation trip to Fiji. While enjoying the exotic locales, they meet Abdul Razak Khan (Paresh Rawal), a mysterious billionaire, who operates a live game website. Khan offers the couple a chance of a lifetime- to win a whopping sum of Rs. 21 crores by participating in a game loosely based on the ‘truth and dare’ game.
 
Needless to say, the couple is intrigued and tempted and accepts the offer. Though the game seems interesting and fun initially, the rules get weirder as the game progresses and finally, Vivaan and Sia realise that they might not be able to exit the game alive…What happens next? Will the couple escape with their lives? Who is Khan and how does he know everything about the couple’s past? To figure out all this, do watch the movie…
 
Table No. 21 Review-Performances: Rajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desae play their parts quite well as the loving couple Vivaan and Sia. However, it is Paresh Rawal as Khan, who takes the cake. His unique look, his witty lines and his ‘complicated bad guy’ persona keeps you guessing about what makes him tick till the very end. The rest of the cast is passable enough.
 
Table No. 21 Review-Direction: Aditya Datt might have given below average films in the past, but with Table No. 21, he does a decent job. The film is visually appealing and the director doesn’t waste much time exploring the romance between the couple before getting to the meat of the matter. The game designed for the couple is interesting enough and will keep you on the edge of the seat, as you keep guessing about what comes next. However, on the flip side, the climax is somewhat predictable and seems incomplete.
 
Table No. 21 Review-Final Word: All said and done, Table No. 21 is not bad for a one-time watch, though you might end up thinking that the climax could have been better…

Doesn't Bring Much On The Table

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 31 December 2012 1.5 / 5

As far as music is concerned, not much is expected from an edgy thriller like Table No.21. For movies belonging to this genre, its all about the script, cinematography and performances. After watching the trailer, most would be optimistic about the script and the performances, as it is taken good care by a versatile actor like Paresh Rawal with a specialist in this genre, Rajeev Khandelwal. Though movies coming from Eros are known for their music, the producers are also the ones who believe in doing something different and as per the script. Table No 21 falls in the same category with the director choosing to have only three tracks in the movie, hence not hindering the pace with songs. Newbie Gajendra Verma dons the hat of music composer, singer and lyricist in the album.
 
Album begins with Sajna, a romantic duet by Puja Thaker and Gajendra Verma. Track starts with Gajendra rendering few lines in English and Puja takes over with some contrasting singing in Punjabi. It's a soft rendition which would be liked by the listeners. Lyrics by Aseem Ahmed Abbasi and Gajendra Verma range from English and Hindi to Punjabi, though the emotion remains the same throughout out the song. Composition is good but not out of the world. There is another 'remix version' of the same song but whatever emotions you felt after listening to the original might get lost after listening to this one. This one only makes one question the very need of such remixes.
 
Mann Mera is the next track rendered by Gajendra Verma himself. It's a decent track which grows on you after repeat hearing. Aseem Ahmed Abbasee's lyrics are Sufi based and meaningful. Even the composition suits the lyrics. There is a 'remix version' of the same song which begins with a short piano piece. Even this one is just a faster version of the original with a nice background piano base that gets overshadowed with other instruments that only contribute with noise.
 
Last but not the least is If You Lie You Die which is rendered by Neeraj Shreedhar and Jaspreet Jasz. This one explicitly carries the theme of the movie. Sheershak Anand and Jaspreet Jazz's lyrics are written keeping the story in mind and it does that effectively. Despite being fast track, it is not catchy though. Though the song's theme was great, it could have been made with a little more imagination to attract listeners. However that's not the case and in its current form it stays on to be merely lacklustre and average.
 
Over all, the album does not have much for the music enthusiasts. There was not much needed either since the film is a thriller. However one good title track with groovy and thrilling music would have helped its overall prospects. Not many can make musical thrillers like Abbas- Mastan and this one is far away musically. Hopefully, director Aditya Datt would cover it all with the script and performances.
