Happened to catch this movie on a flight to India.

On the plane to India, I chanced on a new but relatively unknown movie called 99. It’s a play on 99 not out, and cricket plays a role all through the movie. With an ensemble cast that includes Boman Irani, Soha Ali Khan and Vinod Khanna, directors D.K. Krishna and Raj Nidimoru try to recreate the mood of an Elmore Leonard movie. It’s a decent effort, and bodes well for a nascent but growing indie cinema trend in India.
