Here is an underrated and overlooked post-Tarantino gangster flick set in modern India. You know the film noir formula: An ordinary guy is blown off course from his normal life at night, meets a mysterious woman in the rain, and becomes involved with various strange characters from the underworld. "Last Local" traces its roots back to Edgar G. Ulmer's masterpiece "Detour", and does a wonderful job invoking the atmosphere of unsafe areas of modern Bombay during the wee hours of the morning, while constantly confounding the viewer's expectations.

It starts off innocently enough. Our hero works in a call center where he must deal with American customers. He misses his train late at night and meets up with a beautiful woman who has also (apparently) missed her train. For the first 30 minutes we might think we are watching a romance comedy. But gradually we fall into the company of druggies, prostitutes, transsexuals, kidnappers and killers. My favorites are the religiously devout killers who cheat at cards. The movie becomes more violent as it goes on, eventually pilling up an astonishingly large number of killings. All of these killings are done with black humor, Tarantino style, so it is difficult to tell if one should laugh or be disgusted.

The major flaw with this movie is the length which is about 2.5 hours. The director had the conceit of making this in "real time" so the viewer is supposed to experience the time between 1:30 and 4 AM as it happens. This is overlong, as the brain tires of the various twists and turn-arounds in the plot after the second hour.

This is not a bad movie.
