Remove the morality check and Delhi's metaphor twined with the aspirations of the central characters; you'll end up with something mediocre like MOH MAYA MONEY - an intriguing premise with morality undertones and a wink to de noir in first time helmer Munish Bhardwaj's debut feature.


The setup of MOH MAYA MONEY is intriguing but it loses charm just before the interval in its fascination to impress all and turning predictable in due course and then returning to its initial dream of being a wannabe desi de noir and is left struggling to find a space.

An immoral Aman (Ranvir Shorey) is a real estate broker who wants to get rid of the middle class tag as soon as possible. Wife Divya (Neha Dhupia) a programming executive in a TV channel is not that ambitious and is against false means to earn quick bucks.

Aman often skims money from the multinational company he works at. Aman passes big deal/leads to a local dealer named Raghuveer for fat commissions. One day his immoral practices get busted giving a fatal blow to his dreams of becoming rich in Delhi. A series of unexpected events follow putting lives of Aman and Divya in danger further unfolding into a check on morality for both Aman and Divya who are hiding secrets from one another.

The highlight of MOH MAYA MONEY is the interesting premise and some realistic performance from the lead - Neha Dhupia and Ranveer Shorey.

The greed, aghast and guilt are well portrayed by the two. The dialogues are crisp while the city of Delhi and Resul Pookutty's background score play important characters in the film.

What falters the chances of MOH MAYA MONEY to be a stout desi de noir thriller is its predictability in Munish Bhardwaj's linear narrative that just before the interval you stop worrying as the proceedings give a bingo feeling to the audience's thought process. It's happening just as the way they thought.

The twist later fails to thrill as it should have and the lack of intensity, excitement in the unfolding during the climax doesn't do any good.

Yes, those who wish to see a bag full of old currency notes then this is your last chance to cherish your lust and greed (Moh and Maya) for the old 500 rupees note currency (in one seen we see Ranvir Shorey filling a bag full with the old 500 rupees note) and appearing happy.
