This movie is about three loosely interconnected stories set in the middle of the noise and grime of Mumbai during the Ganesh festival. In the overcrowded urban landscape that forms the backdrop of this film, the right and wrong are blurred, giving way to the more basic need to survive and succeed.

4 months down and the only film on my must watch list was Dhobhi Ghat. Not any more, with Shor in the city I have found the best Hindi film of the year so far. Ironically like Dhobhi Ghat this too is an ode to the city of Bombay & has stories intersecting each other.
PLOT KYA HAI? - In the 11 days of Ganesh Chaturthi 3 lives of Tushar Kapoor, Sendil Ramamurhty & Sundeep Kishan intersect each other.
WHAT WORKS - the screenplay is extremely engaging and keeps you involved right from the beginning. I dont know what is about quirky characters and out of the box actors that make a film worth its time. In this one I found Pitobash Tripathy as Mandook. Every scene that he is in becomes a treat to watch. He along with Nikhil Dwivedi reminded me of the boys from Gomorrah. Nikhils character is the weakest in the film along with Preeti Desais. Amit Mistry( loved him in 99) though not in the lead gets a better role. Sendhils mysterious character is the intriguing part of the film. He is one character whose back story I was interested in. Tushar Kapoor is probably in his best form after golmaal and Radhika Apte ( she reminds me of Shefali Chhaya) just makes me wanna fall in love all over again. Girija Oak as Sandeep Kishan girlfriend is a complete natural. The little moments and observation in the film is what stays long after its over. Things like an office assistant talking about having noodles with his boss to his wife, Amit Mistry talking to someone at home about what to cook for dinner right in the middle of an arms deal. The film is filled with such marvelous moments & some cool black humor.
WHAT DOESNT WORK Sandeeps track is the weakest & gets a bit repetitive after some time also Sendhil & Preeti Desais love track doesnt work. I so wanted to see more of the others especially Mandook.
FINAL FEW WORDS Shor in the city is for every Hindi movie buff deprived of good cinema. Its not entirely fresh but much better than the rest.
