After a steamy night filled with passion, Urvil (Tanuj Virwani) and Celina (Sunny Leone) return to their regular lives. He is a typical young achiever with a lovely wife by his side, who has no idea about his sexcapades. Celina is devotedly married to a top-notch businessman and has the most picture-perfect family. But, Urvil cannot get her out of his mind. He becomes an obsessive stalker who wouldn't settle for anything less than either having her or destroying her.
The first thing that will come to your mind while watching this movie: 'Is Bollywood finally growing up?' To her credit, Jasmine Moses D'souza has dared to think out of the box. She is confident enough to show her hero as a philandering man, her heroine as a woman who pleasures herself in a dalliance and dares to leave it just at that. It is novel to see one night stands as something besides being prequels to stormy love affairs. Also, finally there is a filmmaker who can break the stereotype and portray Sunny Leone as a perfect mother, a supportive wife and a doting daughter-in-law. However, Jasmine and her writer Bhavani Iyer, manage to whip up only a half-baked, predictable plot ridden with cliches.
The narrative has its own merits but lacks coherence. The mood changes from sultry to somber in no time. The situations are so banal that it fails to evoke any sympathy. Be it Urvil's marriage that goes downhill once he starts obsessing about Celina or the impact his behavior has on her family life and her psyche, the filmmaker doesn't spend much time elaborating these. Naturally, the drama runs thin by the second hour. The heavy climax speech with its feminist undertones is poorly performed. The points raised are well made but is too preachy for liking.
Sometimes good actors do have the power to exalt a mediocre script, but both Sunny and Tanuj fail to sink their teeth deep into their characters. Their acting lacks flair. She never looks genuinely harrowed and his demeanor is far from dangerous.
Even with a compelling idea, One Night Stand remains singularly superficial.
When you sign up for a Sunny Leone film, there are expectations of a certain kind. For such a single-minded audience, Sunny delivers with foamy swipes across her body in slow-mo and openmouthed moans. But those hopeful for more, shouldn't be. As the title suggests, this isn't a story of free love, rather freelance lovemaking. And while extra-marital affairs have become jaded in films, milked largely by the Bhatts, this one targets a proposition close to the Indian male fantasy — having one with Sunny Leone.
Event manager, Urvil Raisingh (Tanuj Virwani) begins with a grim narrative. He mulls over biology and educates the audience on how every cell of our body regenerates each year, making us an entirely new human annually. But does it? This prophetic theory is only a prelude to the events that went down when he was in Thailand. He reflects on his intimate meeting with a mysterious woman, called Celina (Sunny Leone), who he manages to get around with, courtesy one-liners, possibly taken from the back of a tuktuk. Celina argues that her name symbolises the sky and Urvil's — the sea, and the twain shall never meet. But our man is prepared and points to a sunset across the sea. "Par wahan toh duniya khatam ho jaati hain," she stalls. But he isn't giving up, "Come on, when in Phuket, let's just f**k it." Urvil's colleagues are equally cocky too as they nudge each other on learning about his amorous adventures. Their reading of the situation is something to the effect of a goalkeeper's right to score a goal. But these sports references only graduate to a ping pong of heavy-duty hamming when we learn that Urvil has a doting wife, Simran (Nyra Banerjee), a compulsive baker, who whips her angst only into her macaroon dough.
Things get murky when Urvil, who can't recover from his past mingling, learns about Celina's notso-single status. When called a 'stalker', he's so shattered that he becomes one. The last half-hour of this 97-minute film feels like being in a car driven by a reckless drunken monkey who has been bitten by a scorpion and has little to lose: it gets so screechy and sways so dangerously that you beg for the end.
Three-films old, Tanuj Virwani could pass for a malnourished Abhishek Bachchan from certain angles. Whether this is a compliment is debatable. He's fairly on the ball in the first half but cracks and spills over in attempting the highoctane scenes to portray his character's emotional turmoil. Sunny Leone's oohs and aahs will surely earn a nod and more from the frontbenchers, but as an actress, she's not even trying.
That said, she does have powerful dialogues like, "Tum aise jawab dhoond rahe ho, jiska sawaal hi nahin uthta," that require much chewing before swallowing. Newcomer Nyra Banerjee's onedimensional-hopeless-doormat-of-ahousewife character evokes rage rather than empathy, as she seems disturbingly docile. An all-round terrible choice for a debut.
Unlike the upbeat Meet Bros song in the film, Do peg maar aur bhool ja, this one will take much more to scrape off from memory.
Rana Daggubati was being considered for the male lead opposite Sunny Leone. But due to lack of dates, he was replaced by Tanuj Virwani. Rana had given his dates for Telugu film, 'Baahubali.'
Sunny Leone's erotic romantic film 'One Night Stand' failed to impress at the box office. The Jasmine D'Souza film which also stars debutant Tanuj Virwani and Nyra Banerjee made a around Rs 2.25 crore in its first weekend.
This movie may not be a great one but this movie gives an important message that relation out of wedlock spoils peace of mind and environment of family whether the relation is of one night only. Affairs outside marriage spoils family peace and it should be remembered by every body. Sunny is now learning acting too.
