‘The Expose’…Limited Exposure

MUMBAI: The composer singer Himesh Reshammiya, wanting to turn and be accepted as an actor, is a mission that is into its fourth essay with The Expose, a film to re-re-re- launch him. The earlier attempts being Aap Kaa Surroor, The Moviee–The Real Luv Story and Karzzzz which were blanks, neither earning Himesh monies nor stardom.

In the latest search for recognition and stardom, Himesh has managed to shed much weight and assumed a new- mustached look. Also, the subject has been selected that does not tax an artiste too much while also creating the scope to play with music and atmosphere.

This is 1960s and 70s and Himesh is a star from South films who was a cop responsible for shooting a politician. His carries an attitude like South superstar Rajnikant; he does not require his face to be touched up as he believes he was born with makeup. He is now making his debut in a Hindi film.

There is a film awards function. Pitted against each other are two female debutantes, Zoya Afroz and Sonali Raut, who shared a PG accommodation and struggled together. Sonali pips Zoya at the awards and a catfight follows. Next, one knows, Sonali has fallen from the terrace. After initially calling it a suicide, it is later declared a murder. This leads Himesh to assume his original profession, he is a cop again.

Producers: Vipin Reshammiya.

Director: Ananth Narayan Mahadevan. ,

Cast: Himesh Reshammiya, Sonali Raut, Zoya Afroz, Honey Singh, Ananth Mahadevan, Irrfan

The director and the camera are dedicated to Himesh rather than get into the details of the era the film is set in; it tries to be smarty pants. The dialogue is the plus with Himesh’s sense for music adding to the advantage. While Himesh tries his best but remains static as an actor, the girls are okay while Irrfan as a ticket black-marketer is a misfit.

The Expose holds limited appeal due to music factoronly.
