Some films are unapologetically pornographic, and Timepass is one of them. This self-proclaimed "lust story" does a great job of being one.
Timepass can best be described as a sorry excuse for a movie about a horny, hormonally-hyperactive hero and a completely brainless heroine with ample cleavage - and enough scenes that show it. The flick has no plot to speak of, which makes it easier on the actors, none of whom can act. Neither of these factors hampers Timepass in any way, because the real essence of the movie, i. e. Mona Chopra's cleavage, is amply displayed.
Well, if you must know, the film traces the attempts of Vishal (Arjun Punj) to have sex with his bombshell neighbour Jenny (Mona Chopra). These attempts are hampered mildly by his mother (Himani Shivpuri), but aided eagerly by his sleazy and perennially horny buddies.
Jenny is supposedly an innocent (i. e., brainless) but stunningly sexy (she thinks clothes are optional) woman who fails to decipher these very obvious attempts. Mona Chopra is a talented newcomer whose true potential has not yet been tapped. We hope she's just using Timepass as a stepping stone to achieve greater heights, i. e. full-fledged porn movies.
Chopra plays the role of Jenny so convincingly that we begin to wonder if she is acting at all. Arjun Punj is far better off on the small screen, and should stick to it. Himani Shivpuri comes as a welcome relief, and even her comic over-action is better than the complete absence of acting from other quarters.
Needless to say, the plot exists only to facilitate the shedding of clothes by various characters, many of whom make moves on the heroine, and one of whom makes roaring moves on the hero! This completely inexplicable twist, added solely to up the movie's sleaze factor, is, well, just one of many. Fortunately, as we mentioned, the plot is entirely secondary.
The astute moviegoer will ignore the director's threadbare attempts to disguise the film's true character by throwing in such elements as Hindu-Muslim riots, safe sex and brutality towards women. All these, happily, do not take up more than two minutes of screen time. If only the movie itself lasted that long.
To call this movie cheap and vulgar would be to miss the point altogether. Relatives of the heroine (our condolences) and the perverted men of the nation will watch it anyway, but to all others, there are easier ways of dying.
