SHOR IN THE CITY
If you can’t hear it, you’re obviously dead!
That is the underlying thought that runs through the season’s most keenly awaited comedy, which revolves around three interconnected stories in the midst of the noise and grime of Mumbai.
Abhay (Sendhil Ramamurthy Heroes, Covert Affairs), 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 former Miss England.)
Tilak (Tusshar), 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.
From the producer of Love Sex Aur Dhokha, comes an edgy, trippy, and unabashedly entertaining film, which received a rousing response in New York, Pusan, and Dubai. Not-to-be-missed!
