FILM: Table No 21 (Certificate TBC)

Honesty is not always the best policy in Aditya Datt’s action thriller, which pairs Rajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desae as young lovers whose lives are undone by cruel fate.

Vivaan (Khandelwal) and Siya Agasthi (Desae) are a young couple whose loyalty and devotion have helped them to navigate the occasional speed bump on the path to true love.

The Agasthis are delighted when they win a dream holiday to Fiji, all expenses paid, including a meal at the exclusive resort of Suva to mark their wedding anniversary.

In this tropical paradise, they meet the quixotic Mr Khan (Paresh Rawal), who offers them a small fortune if they will agree to play a simple truth game.

All Vivaan and Siya have to do is answer eight questions honestly or complete simple tasks to significantly swell their bank balance.

Vivaan and Siya agree and they sail through the early questions but as the quizzing continues, the game becomes increasingly personal and uncomfortable, forcing the couple to reveal dark secrets that have remained hidden for years.

Released: January 4 (UK, selected cinemas, running time TBC)
