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.

Shor in the City - Guy Ritchie in Mumbai!
16 January 2012 | by prasad2505See all my reviews

Shor in the city is one of the finest movies released in 2011 from the usual trash producing bollywood. The treatment is more like babel but mumbai as the location adds color to the story. It indeed lives as a character in the movie! Wonderful performances from everyone and the script is well executed. Its damn right funny at times and pretty intense when it has to be. The crooks, the mafia, tushar & radhika apte brings life to the story. The dialogs are hilarious and there is a small sweet melody which bleeds nothing but romance.

If you like Guy Ritche films or you just want to see something other than the usual run of the mill films, this would be a good choice.
