Himesh Reshammiya and Yo Yo Honey Singh’s The Xpose (2014) had a surprise package in Irrfan. And the only thing that got us through this 113 minutes of torture.
The first thing that comes to mind when the words ‘The Xpose’ are uttered, is the song Ice Cream Khaungi, Kashmir Jaungi. And like the whole of this 113-minute film – which is a film about films and the movie industry – the lyrics make no sense. Several questions through this unputdownable plate of desi Chinese were left unanswered. Like for example, if Himesh Reshammiya’s character Ravi Kumar suffered a kidney problem – he did give us a hint when he said, “Tumhare sharir mein utna khoon nahin jitna Ravi Kumar ekbaar mein moot deta hai.” Or why Yo Yo Honey Singh’s character KD, a name and profession clearly borrowed from RD (Burman), rapped in the 60s? Or why he was sporting the Sadhna haircut when the women in the film.
