Frothy exercise: A scene from ‘Aagey Se Right’.

Film: Aagey Se Right

Cast: Shreyas Talpade, Kay Kay Menon, Shehnaz Treasurywala

Direction: Indrajit Nattonji

A section of Bollywood is celebrating the absurd these days. Here comes the weekly delivery. In this format first a few funny situations are written and then an effort is made to tie them in the form of a script. Director Indrajit Nattonji rehashes the formula but the tie-and-dye is not smooth.

He does keep us anticipating that things will get aagey se right but alas it seldom rises above street smart buffoonery.The consistency is compromised for a few jokes. Thankfully, he has got Shreyas Talpade and Kay Kay Menon in substantial roles lending some weight to this frothy exercise. Shreyas plays a bumbling cop who loses his gun in a silly skirmish. Looking for his gun at all the odd places he bumps into a terrorist (Kay Kay), who has come to blast the city but falls head over heals for a bar dancer (Shehnaz Treasurywala) losing hold of the mission as well as his Urdu. As he learns his lessons in Mumbaiyya Hindi from a local don, the film gets its best scenes.

They are irreverent towards a language but good fun nonetheless. However, as whole it is nothing more than a misfired shot!
