After four long years, Deepak Shivdasani is back to the stream with an out-n-out comedy flick titled 'Mr. White Mr. Black'. Macho man Suniel Shetty and Munnabhai's circuit Arshad Warsi play the roles of Mr. White and Mr. Black respectively. Mahima Mehta, Rashmi Nigam and debutant actress Anishka Khosla form the female lead of the movie. Is Mr. White Mr. Black funny enough to tickle your funny bone for 2 and half hours?

Gopi (Sunil Shetty) a simpleton arrives in Goa. His mission - to hand over an incredibly tiny piece of land to his childhood friend Kishen, which was his father's last wish. Kishen (Arshad Warsi), now a conman, swindles people with a little help from his accomplice, Babu (Atul Kale), to earn enough money to educate his sibling Divya (Mahima Mehta) who's studying in London. Kishen, however, has managed to hide his profession from Anuradha (Rashmi Nigam) merely saying that it's Hari, his twin, who is the bad guy.

Kishen avoids Gopi like he's bad news. He's not going to give up his flourishing business and travel to Hoshiyarpur just to take possession of a measly piece of land! Gopi, in his mission of chasing Kishen, is given a helping hand by Tanya (Anishka Khosla), daughter of the owner of KG Resorts.

Diamonds worth crores have been stolen in a breathtaking heist by three gorgeous girls who are now holed up at KG Resorts. Kishen, Babu and everyone else learns about this and they all make a mad rush for KG Resorts. Gopi finds himself a part of the gang.

Who gets the diamonds? Does Gopi manage to take Kishen to Hoshiyarpur? And was the land just a meager piece of land or something more? The answers are out in black and white by the time you go through this hectic cinematic maze!

Mr. White, Mr. Black strives hard to make you laugh. There isn't any story but rather it's just a set of silly sequences and foolish jokes put together sloppily along with some dull music to add to the runtime. The first half of the movie is not even remotely close to what you call a comedy movie. Post interval, few moments make you smile, but that's about it. At regular intervals the story shifts focus to some other characters that have very little significance in the movie. To add to this, the performance by the star cast is just satisfactory. Music is no relief. It just doesn't gel with the tunes of this day and is very repulsive.

Sharat Saxena steals the show with a good performance. Suniel Shetty isn't at his comic best. Arshad Warsi disappoints. Amongst the girls, Anishka Khosla is below average. Mahima Mehta is bad and so is Rashmi Nigam. Sandhya Mridul looks bad, performance-wise average.

Overall, Mr. White Mr. Black is a below average comedy movie. Just skip it.
