Utt Pataang - Movie Review

Not funny enough

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Utt Pataang. Everything’s topsy-turvy in director Srikanth Velagaleti’s first film Utt Patang, starring Vinay Pathak in a contrastingly double role: an honest, lovelorn simpleton Ram, and a sly, slick, French-spouting underworld don Lucky.

Ram is dumped by his foul-mouthed girlfriend (Mahi Gill) and she now wants to take back her belongings from his flat. Koyal (Mona Singh) is a heartbroken girl Ram meets at a bar and takes her home as she has nowhere to go. And then there’s Ram’s detective friend (Saurabh Shukla) pining for some piece of action. The picture is completed with Ram’s lookalike Lucky, who is a fashionable gangster.

What sets the cat among the pigeons is a lost bag full of Rs. 5 crore. Everyone runs pillar to post to get their hands on the moolah.

Utt Pataang starts off quite intriguingly in the first half, with assorted sequences tacked together inexplicably. It’s in the second half that the things begin to get clearer.

Alas, the variety of humour in the film is strictly mediocre. There’s a sequence where Vinay takes Mona to her apartment and switches on the TV and there’s a C-grade porn film running. More such juvenile gags unravel but fail to amuse you. Moreover, Vinay Pathak hams up his part as the gangster, though he’s pretty likeable as the simpleton Ram. Mahi Gill is given the most acerbic dialogues and she delivers them with a punch. Mona Singh as a brief role. The stocky Saurabh Shukla chips in some fun moments.

To sum it up, Utt Pataang is entertaining only in parts.

Rating: 2 stars out of 5
