Short Kut – Movie Review

Kutting the krap aside and koming straight to the point, Short Kut is a film with laughable gags few and far between.

To be fair, ‘Short Kut’ is not like the mind-numbing no-brainers in which story is woven around assorted gags rather than the other way round. Here, writer Anees Bazmee surprisingly ensures a plot, however flimsy and implausible it may be, and then weaves in the humour. That’s what makes the comedy in ‘Short Kut’ a tad more situational, particularly in the second half when humour flows out of the ego tussle between the two leading characters. However, director Neeraj Vora, who’s also ‘embellished’ the script, doesn’t seem to outgrow his brand of pedestrian humour that’s become as dead as a dodo by now.

Akshaye Khanna puts in a sincere performance and though he doesn’t get as many punchy dialogues as Arshad does, he makes his character of an honest struggler loveable. Playing the villain, Arshad Warsi appears too desperate to make you laugh, just as Amrita Rao tries to look hot in a role that’s meaty only in her character’s appearance.

So should you watch ‘Short Kut – The Con Is On’? Well, in the times when films like ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ are drawing crowds, this film might end up making its own kut at the marquee. If juvenile comedies are your taste, do give it a shot. Else you’ll be left looking for a shortcut to the exit door half-way through this film.

Rating: *1/2
