Shakal Pe Mat Ja - Movie Review

'Shakal Pe Mat Ja' is downright childish

Shakal Pe Mat Ja - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Shakal Pe Mat Ja.

As if one Ali Zafar in this industry was not enough, we now have to contend with a wannabe Zafar as well, it appears. The lad’s name is Shubh Mukherjee and his first film as writer-actor-director Shakal Pe Mat Ja seems inspired from the last year’s successful comedy Tere Bin Laden and his acting has shades of another Ali Zafar in the making.

Even though one may not know whom to feel sorry for (Zafar or Mukherjee), one at least expects a few spurts of laughter from Shakal Pe Mat Ja. But this film has neither Shakal nor Akal. There are no known or pretty faces to charm you. And there’s more desperation than brain behind the humour.

Shakal Pe Mat Ja tells the story of four guys who are arrested after being caught videotaping an American airlines plane at the Delhi airport. While they claim that they were doing the shoot for a documentary, they are listed as terror suspects and interrogated by Anti-Terrorist Squad.

Each one of the quartet is an item in himself. There’s Aniket (Shubh Mukherjee), the affable, over-smart guy who eventually emerges the hero of the plot. There’s a pint of a boy (Pratik Katare), a long-haired and slightly cranky Bulai (Harsh Parekh) and the foul and flatulent Rohan (Chitrak Bandhopadhyay).

The plot thickens when a real terrorist named Omama Bin Laden (Zakir Hussain) who runs a terror outfit named Al Baqaida plans to blow the airport.

The film never really gets going. From the start there’s a conspicuous touch of amateurishness in everything, from direction, screenplay, dialogues to acting. The humour is plain childish. The performances no better. Shubh Mukherjee doesn’t really have a screen presence to hold your attention and doesn’t have a funny streak either. The rest are just passable.

To conclude, Shakal Pe Mat Ja is like a plane on a wing and a prayer. My suggestion to you is: Mat Ja.
