What if one day went missing from your life?


Sunday, movie review

A dead body found floating in a lake… Unexplained scratch marks on Ayesha Taika’s neck… Supari killers out to kill her… A taxi driver who yells ‘bhoot, bhoot’ every time he sees her… Read Sunday movie review.

Welcome to the world of present day career minded girl living on her on in a metro. Sehar (Ayesha Takia) is an absent minded dubbing artist residing in Delhi.

Her world turns topsy-turvy when she gets a clue about the missing Sunday of her life, which points to a possible violent attack on her. A.C.P Rajveer (Ajay Devgan) takes up the case to sort out the complicated and jumbled up threads of Sehar’s life.

In the process of solving Sehar’s case it comes to light that on Sunday, different people interacted with her and amongst them, one could be the accused. The lot included Ballu (Arshad Warsi), the taxi driver and his friend, Kumar (Irrfan Khan), a struggling NSD actor, Ritu (Anjana Sukhani), Sehar’s close friend, a scary and suspicious character Murli Sharma who resides in Sehar’s building, and the group whom she had come across while partying at the discotheque.

While trying to solve the puzzle, Rajveer stumbles upon a murder case whose clues hold up Sehar to be the culprit.

Seher is at first amused, then mystified and then terrified when she realises she has a connection with all these totally unconnected incidents. But she cannot remember anything. Her fiancée ACP Rajvir Randhava is convinced that Seher is innocent, but he is also equally sure that she is linked to everything.

Then another dead body is found. And the bracelet found near the corpse belongs to Seher. The evidence is mounting and all fingers point at Seher.

And still, Seher does not remember anything. A dubbing artiste by day, is she also a serial killer by night? Is Seher really as innocent as she claims to be? Is her bubbly charm but a mask that hides her darker, menacing self?

As Seher desperately fights the fog that clouds her treacherous memory, ACP Rajvir has to fight the fact that the woman he wants to marry may well be a murderer and worse…

What if one day went missing from your life? This is what Sunday the movie all about.

The songs are a much above average – ‘Kashmakash’ by Shibani Kashyap is creatively filmed on Esha Deol is the best among others. The catchy number ‘Manzar’ by Raghav Sachar filmed on Tusshar is also brilliantly picturised supported by Tusshar good dancing skills.

Ajay Devgan is different here, and effortlessly switches over serious to comedy and comedy to serious scenes at the same moment.
Ayesha Takia does her comedy characters dubbing artiste part well and rest of the moments carries a lost in the world expression. Arshad Warsi and Irrfan Khan liven up the moments immediately on their presence and at some places leaves us in splits. Anjana Sukhani in her short presence is cool as the girl with shapely legs and a pretty face.

Sunday has superb cinematography by Aseem Bajaj where he imaginatively captures a new atmosphere around Delhi’s lanes, the daylight around the Qutub Minar and Red Fort, the chaotic Chandni Chowk. A treat to see the fresh angles during an ordinary chase around the Delhi bylanes.

Sunday is a suspense flick, inspired from Telugu’s Anukokunda Oka RojIt is an enjoyable, engrossing at times, entertaining and a right mix of comedy and suspense.
