Movie Info

Abhay (Sendhil Ramamurthy), an NRI, is forced to come to terms with being alone in an unwelcoming city, which he thought was home. Living in a comfortable shell, he soon discovers that he might not be different from the thousands that mill around the bustling city. He seeks refuge in the winsome Shalmili (Preeti Desai) Tilak (Tusshar Kapoor), a bootlegger with a conscience, pulls petty scams with his bold and care free buddies, Ramesh (Nikhil Dwivedi) and Mandook (Pitobash Tripathi). One day they chance upon a rare loot on a local train, which opens up new and dangerously exciting avenues for them. Tilak, incidentally, is also shouldering the responsibility of his new bride, Sapna (Radhika Apte) while taking off on his latest thrill ride to have a 'blast'. Young Sawan (Sundeep Kishan) dreams of making it to the Junior Cricket team. In a city where corruption is a way of life, his dream comes at a price. In the overcrowded urban landscape, lines dividing the right from the wrong are blurred, as the need to survive and succeed takes precedence. The serio-comic take on the chaos of the city makes one realize that like its inhabitants, every city runs on its own ad-hoc rules.

Audience Reviews for Shor in the City

Here's one of those movies where there are several characters involved in different stories that collide towards the climax (in the veins of Crash, only that I liked Crash a lot better than this one). Sorry, I'm not so sure of the last part. While I liked each story on its own reasonably, the way they tried to sum it all up made it look like a mess. Besides, I found the ending a bit too dumb. However, the performances were the main highlight of this flick. While Tusshar underplays his part excellently (as he usually does, IMO), Sendhil, Nikhil, Zakir Hussain and the rest of the cast also performed well enough. But surprisingly, the one who stood out from the rest for me was Amit Mistry (as Tipu herein). He was beyond marvelous. Wish I could have said the same for the movie. Nevertheless, it's worth a watch. Well, at least in parts!!! ;)
