Club 60 is a 2013 Bollywood film produced by Kavee Kumar under the Pulse Media banner and directed by Sanjay Tripathy. [2] The film features Farooq Sheikh, Sarika, Raghubir Yadav and Satish Shah in key roles. The film was Farooq Sheikh’s last release before his death on 27 December 2013. [3]


After the untimely death of their only son,Iqbaal(Ankit Bathla), neurosurgeon, Dr Tariq Sheikh (Farooq Sheikh) and his wife Dr Saira (Sarika) are unable to put the pieces of their broken life together. Tariq suffers from depression, while Saira struggles to cope with her husband's suicidal tendencies. In an attempt to make a fresh start in life and to get rid of the 'nothingness' that haunts them, they shift to Mumbai from Pune. More than the city's distractions, it's their loud neighbor Manubhai (Raghubir Yadav), who manages to kill the deafening silence that plagues them with his somewhat annoying yet adorable antics. Manubhai introduces Tariq to the jovial members of Club 60 - where life begins at 60. [4]



The movie was generally appreciated[vague] for its script, casting, performances by the lead actors (Farooq Sheikh and Sarika) editing and the music. At the same time, the movie was found wanting in certain aspects such as the background score, screenplay and was also criticized for some of the jokes with heavy sexual innuendo, a predictable second half and a clumsy and overlong climax. Overall, the movie received an average rating of 2.58/5 from critics. [2] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10]
