The Shaukeens is a story of three oldies - KD, Lali and Pinki. These lusty old men plan a trip to Mauritius after it becomes difficult, rather life-threatening for them to get some action in Delhi. In Mauritius the trio stay with a young fashion designer Ahana (Lisa Haydon). Ahana, a huge Akshay Kumar fan, is nursing a broken heart. Akshay Kumar (playing himself), is an alcoholic superstar desperately wanting to win the National Award. He is stuck between a Bengali director who gives him tips on method-acting and a secretary, hell bent on getting his superstar boss focus on Rs.200-cr club. Rang Rasiya is a biopic based on a novel of the infamous, avant-garde 19th century painter Raja Ravi Verma. Infamous because he was all too easy with his physical affection in a time of puritan values and scandalously (for the time) gave faces to the the Gods he painted. Avant-garde because he had the guts to invest every last penny into a printing press so that the common man could own a prized painting of the Gods with a face. The story begins with a court trial where the painter is being accused of hurting religious sentiment, promoting pornography in the name of art and corrupting society. An argument we are all too familiar with 150 years later, which is scary. As the trial progresses we dip in and out of Raja Ravi Verma's life and his many loves starting in Kilimanoor in Kerala and spreading to Bombay and Baroda.
