Storyline

An NRI faces threats from extortionists when he opens a small business and goes out with an aspiring model. He refuses to pay, both are stalked, and when he complains to the police, they not only shrug it off but offer 'protection' for a price. With increasing pressure, he must now make a decision to re-locate or submit to their demands. Tilak and his friends are career criminals, and sell merchandise that they steal from passengers using public transportation. He also buys best-selling novels, has copies printed, and has them sold at busy traffic signals. Things change when his group find guns and an explosive device in a stolen bag. Sawan Murthy wants to be a cricketer and must come up with Rs.10 Lakhs in order to be inducted in the 20/20 team. He has no money, nobody will lend him any, and he considers robbing the Citizen's Co-operative Bank. Just some of the challenges faced by regular Mumbaites and criminals in this crime-laden city.

15 August 2011 | by (new delhi, india) – See all my reviews

Shor in the city is directed by US based Indian filmmakers Krishna DK ans Raj Nidhimoru, who also directed 99. This film tells three stories, all interconnected in some way about people from different sections of society.

It doesn't have too many known faces, but all the actors have done a great job. Tusshar Kapoor comes as a surprise package and delivers a memorable performance. Direction and writing are brilliant. Cinematography is good. The city of Mumbai is well captured. The screenplay is taut. I recommend this film to everyone because it is different, fast paced and also has some humor. 8/10
