What happens when a painter leaves his profession and decides to become a chef? What if a professor left his job and took up carpentry? Err..what am i talking? Okay so here it is, what happens when a good, well-to-do, talented musicians decide to take up acting? The Xposé happens.
The story starts off with two actresses Chandni and Zara (played by Zoya Afroz and Sonali Raut respectively) constantly take digs at each other, fight for the first place and keep insulting the other. After a terrible cat fight between the two ladies, Zara is murdered. Very obviously all eyes turn to Chandni who pleads not guilty.
Enter Ravi Kumar (Himesh Reshamiya), a detective who takes it upon himself to solve this mystery, all the while fighting baddie K.D, a singer. What follows is a series of confusing episodes, distracting actors, overdose of songs and terrible acting.
Apart from some cheesy dialogues in between and a couple of songs there is nothing good about the film. The story is stretched and by God, Himesh Reshammiyya is no treat to the eyes. Honey Singh tries hard but fails to impress us. The lavish settings of the film is one to be praised.
The songs look like a mash up of several older Bollywood songs. All the actors except Irrfan Khan (who is seen in a cameo) are amateurs. Himesh as a detective tries to ape Sherlock Holmes and then suddenly Leonardo Di Capri from The Great Gatsby. The story of The Xposé completely loses its focus as well as the audience’s attention.
Bottomline: Watch it only if you have nothing left to do on a holiday.
