Like the old Oscar winner titled Crash, three different unrelated threads get woven together to come back to the scene where a crash nearly happened and a mobile phone got snatched.
If that doesn't make sense, director Pia Sukanya's narration too has you foxed for quite a while.

PR agent Meghna's phone is snatched and Pintu who always fancied himself a superhero decides to help her out. He does it at the cost of a family outing where they've set up a meeting between him and a prospective bride.
There are complications. The guy on a scooter who snatched her phone doesn't return it easily. He seems like a shady courier, a guy on the run. There's an MMS clip on the phone between Meghna and her client, fading superstar Karan Kapoor that can't go public. Karan has taken off to sulk and drink by himself near a lake. There's politician Irawati who bullies him easily. And a powerful dada in jail who taps everybody's phone and runs the city from the prison.

Director Pia Sukanya seems to have a plot in her head where all the tracks finally come together. But that doesn't translate onto the screen which has a few scenes that are amusing by themselves but don't make sense when you're watching them. Like the comic scene where Meghna bursts into a song on Bhagirath but it falls flat with the viewer clueless about what's going on. There's a grandmother who keeps asking Meghna if she's pregnant and much confusion over her delicate condition.

Honestly, if this review isn't making sense, it simply captures how the viewer feels.

When it all comes together, it's about Witness Protection, a Bill that's still pending. A good thought that's completely garbled and mangled beyond recognition with scratchy storytelling.

Radhika Apte, Akshay Oberoi, Adil Hussain, Ajinkya Deo, there are plenty of talented actors in this messy ensemble. And all of them deliver with trademark efficiency. But the confusion overshadows everything around. 

For a baffling narration, Bombairiya gets a 2* rating.
