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…
