Movie Review: EMI (2008)

2 Stars (out of 4)

Buy the DVD at Amazon

As economies around the world falter, what could be timelier than a movie about the danger of credit card debt? The film even ends with the written warning: “Take Loans Responsibly.” EMI (an acronym for “Easy Monthly Installment”) is an uneven but watchable comedy about a tough collections agent (Sanjay Dutt) who changes his image by helping folks out of debt, instead of beating them up for money — his usual collection method. The film’s best scene is an early dance number featuring Arjun Rampal that pays tribute to Saturday Night Fever, white leisure suit and all.
