Aage Se Right

On A Mission: Shreyas Talpade in Aage Se Right.

What will you do if you are lost and want to reach your destination? You will ask people, who will give you directions, either left or right. But you do not always get your path right.

In Aage Se Right the director prefers to take the ‘right direction’ and seems to have landed on the wrong path.

Inspector Dinkar Waghmare (Shreyas Talpade) loses his service gun on the first day of his duty, and terrorist Balam alias Jaanu (Kay Kay Menon), his heart. In a bid to retrieve his lost gun, Dinkar ends up being at the wrong place every time.

He unintentionally becomes a supercop who solves all the cases with his fake gun in just three days but finds it hard to catch hold of his real Hanuman-sticker gun.

Meanwhile, landing in Mumbai to spoil the police party, Balam falls in love with bar dancer Pearl (Shenaz) at first sight and becomes Jaanu. The serious-looking, Urdu-speaking terrorist drops his ‘jung-e-azaadi’ mission and takes up love lesson from Raghu Bhai (Vijay Maurya), a Mumbai bhai with tapori language laced in South Indian accent. Come interval, and you are still waiting to laugh. Really laugh. Kay Kay and Shreyas have given their best.

Mahie Gill as TV reporter, Shenaz as bar dancer and Bharati Achrekar as Dinkar’s mother are average.

Director Indrajit Nattoji fails in an attempt to create a good story as the film lacks cohesion.  The music and background score are also disappointing as the songs, although few, seem forced.

The only face-saving act happens to be a couple of scenes of Vijay Maurya, who is excellent as Raghu bhai.  Touted a comedy, Aage Se Right is far from funny. This ‘right turn’ should be  avoided.
