1:40 KI LAST LOCAL has some interesting characters
By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
A film about characters rather than just heroes and heroines is the IN thing. This was witnessed a few weeks back in TRAFFIC SIGNAL followed by HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD. followed by just released HAT TRICK.
Now 1:40 KI LAST LOCAL also carries on the same trend as apart from Abhay Deol and Neha Dhupia who are the film's leads, there are also some interesting characters that are played by Snehal Dhabi and Deepak Shirke.
Snehal Dhabhi plays Habiba who is a eunuch and a loan-shark by profession. At the top of the hierarchy in the eunuchs of the Kurla chawls, she is more bold and fearless than an ordinary man though being sensitive and soft woman at heart. Known for her razor sharp tongue, she can be bitter and lethal as per the demand of the situation.
On the other hand Deepak Shirke plays Mangesh Chilke who is a cunning man belonging to the underworld and is as disloyal as one can be. That's the reason why he is considered as a snake who can bite his own protector. Having a 'special fondness' for young boys, his next victim may as well be Abhay Deol!
