Story: Four aimless college-goers take a road trip to the Himalayas in search of a mythical drug named M Cream.

Review: Debutant director Agneya Singh takes an uncanny approach in his depiction of the Indian middle class. Instead of glorifying them, he unravels their flawed side. These youngsters are from affluent families, lacking a sense of purpose. They are losing their bodies and soul to alcohol and drugs. At its basic premise, the plot has promise. But its slim screenplay fails to delve better into the psyche of these youngsters, making the characters caricaturish.

In the opening scene, set in the sprawling lawn of a South Delhi mansion, a happy party comes to an abrupt end due to lack of good quality hash. The conversation shifts between Free Tibet Movement and hash till they are told about the magic drug that can knock you off in a puff. These youngsters are well-read, perfectly quoting Rabindranath Tagore, Jimmy Hendrix and Vikram Seth in the same breath. One might argue how the story is far removed from the reality, but Singh focuses on the faction less triumphant. They are complacent, comfortably splurging their parents' money with no remorse or regret.

The director's opinionated side appears in flashes as he takes his story through unnecessary events - from meeting a hippie (Barry John) with a strange American who gives shelter to stoners to a Chipko-like movement where villagers are protesting land acquisition. He has a view on everything - politics, literature, love, freedom. No wonder the film feels crammed with information. You wish it were more coherent!

Singh makes a few pertinent remarks on this generation which is debatably described as 'a wretched blob of uppers and downers.' But the narrative remains pretentious. There is a lack of depth, be it in the characters or subplots. The acting is average and someone as high up as Barry John could've been better used.

M Cream is incomprehensible in parts, poignant in others but it is mostly a pointless movie. Though brimming with raw energy, the narrative lacks vision to use it right.
