Shreyas Talpade in ‘Aagey Se Right’

Aagey Se Right (Hindi)

Cast: Kay Kay Menon, Shreyas Talpade, Shehnaz Treasurywala, Vijay Maurya

Director: Indrajit Nattonji

A section of Bollywood is celebrating the absurd these days. Here comes the weekly delivery.

As you know 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 keeps the audience in anticipation that things will get aagey se right but alas it seldom rises above street smart buffoonery.

We used to think actors should be malleable, here characters are. The consistency is compromised for a few jokes.

Thankfully, he has 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 in all 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 (Vijay Maurya), 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!
