Not many will be aware that BARAH AANA is Raja Menon's second directorial venture. His debut film, BAS YUN HI (2003), starring Nandita Das and Purab Kohli, sank without a trace. Taking moral responsibility for the failure of BAS YUN HI, Raja took his time in directing his next and decided to take the plunge once again only after he had signed the actors that he desired and needed to make the film.

CHECK OUT: BARAH AANA Movie Preview

The whole plot of BARAH AANA revolves around three characters, a driver, a waiter and a watchman, who are neighbours in Dharavi. The main character of the taxi driver is played by actor par excellence, Naseeruddin Shah, who has a successful film like A WEDNESDAY behind him. Says the director Raja Menon, ''I took time to make sure that I signed the actors of my choice. If Naseer was unavailable, I would have had to rework the script.'' The character of the waiter has been essayed by actor Arjun Mathur, who was last seen in Farhan Akhtar's LUCK BY CHANCE. Comedian Vijay Raaz will be seen as watchman, in a never before role, and all of them play migrants from Uttar Pradesh, coming to Mumbai with big dreams but eventually just about manage to make a living. Says Menon, ''In case of the characters of BARAH AANA, played by Naseer, Arjun Mathur and Vijay Raaz, their dreams and despair go together.''

Well, Raja we do hope that all your dreams with BARAH AANA are fulfilled and there is not even a hint of despair when the film release on 20th March, all over and that this film, which has a tagline - A comedy of real life, gives you and its distributors the cause to laugh all the way to the bank.
