Vivek Oberoi started his career playing the street-smart gangster in Ram Gopal Varma's COMPANY. But he shed that skin quite fast and went on to display his lighter side in Mani Ratnam's YUVA. But MASTI introduced his comic talents to the world in the real sense. And now the guy's back with another light hearted comedy HOME DELIVERY. HD is director Sujoy Ghosh's second flick after the much acclaimed JHANKAR BEATS. This time too it seems Sujoy has attempted something off the track and goin' by the promos of the film one has to say that it looks really colourful. Funny man Boman Irani also plays a pivotal role in the film that of a 50 year old pizza delivery 'boy'! Mahima Chaudhary and Ayesha Takia play the leading ladies in the film along with a host of other talented actors including Saurabh Shukla, Arif Zakaria, Juhi Chawla, Victor Banerjee and Rushita Pandit. For the first time today's most happening director Karan Johar is gracing the celluloid. No he is not switching over to acting but playing himself instead.
Home Delivery is the story of how it takes just a single day to change a person's outlook on life forever. Sunny Malhotra is a 28 year old writer who has carved a name for himself as a popular agony uncle, named Gyan Guru, writing for the Times of Hindustan. Sunny also managed to bag a prestigious screenplay-writing project for the most happening film director, Karan Johar. A bit of a cynic, he believes he is a self-made man and that whatever he has achieved in life is due to his own hard work and nobody else’s. His cynicism is extended to his views about marriage to his fiancée Jenny and to the festival of Diwali too. Just as Sunny is cynical about life, Michael Burnett is optimistic about it
51 year old Michael is a simple minded man, almost childlike and has recently landed a job as a pizza delivery boy at Mummy's Pizza. Michael has sort of an inclination to lose every job he has ever had in 2 days flat. This time, however, he vows to keep this one no matter what. On the eve of Diwali, Sunny has loads of stuff to do and very little time to do it. He has to meet his screenplay deadline, he has to get rid of Wagle-his irritatingly intrusive next-door neighbor and he's got to avoid his editor's telephone calls who is livid that he's bunking work. But more importantly he needs to get Jenny out of the way because he has a date with Maya, a South Indian superstar who he has been in love with him since as long as he can remember. In this confusion, Sunny forgets that there is no food in his bachelor pad and orders a pizza that Michael is given the task of delivering. And what Michael delivers to Sunny is so much more than just a pizza. Sunny is home delivered life's simple lessons - right to his doorstep.
The film is written by Sujoy Ghosh along with Suresh Nair, Ritesh Shah and Milap Jhaveri. The music for the film has been tuned by the talented duo Vishal-Shekhar to the lyrics written by Vishal Dadlani. Speaking about music, actor Sanjay Dutt and Boman Irani have strained their vocal chords. This is probably Sanjay's third stint with singing after 'Ae Shivani' in KHOOBSURAT and 'Rama Re' in KAANTE. Both the songs were quite a rage; let's see if this time he is able to pull it off once more. Of late, Vivek Oberoi is goin' through a pretty rough phase. KYON HO GAYA NAA and KISNA have really dampened his box-office credibility. With HOME DELIVERY he will surely hope for a certain revival!
