shandhar review

Release date : Nov 06, 2015 Rating : 1.5/5

Director : Manish Srivastav

Producer : Karan Arora

Music Director : Manish J. Tipu

Starring : Naseeruddin Shah

As the whole country awaits Salman Khan’s entry next week, this is a rather dull week at the box office. Debutante director Manish Shrivastav’s dark suspense comedy titled ‘Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein’ starring Nasseruddin Shah, Anand Tiwari, Manasi Rachch and Amit Sial has released today. Let’s see whether the movie manages to stay or goes unmentioned.

Story :

The movie’s story is about six friends Sam, Dips, Tanya, Patty, Nina and Jeeves, who are being blackmailed to do a cocaine delivery job. However, it is only after they loose their lives that the case takes a huge turn.

The case is now being investigated by Commissioner of Police, Sanket Pujari (Nasseruddin Shah) along with his team, who struggles hard to solve this twisted puzzle of multiple homicide. How will Sanket manage to solve this intriguing case forms the rest of the story.

Plus Points :

Except for a few scenes here and there, enacted by Naseeruddin Shah, nothing in the film is really worth a mention.  Naseeruddin Shah gives his best for the film which is otherwise below par. Another good part about the film is its climax, which manages to tickle a bit. Some dialogues are quite witty and play on cliches well.

Minus Points:-

In a struggle to make a suspense comedy, Manish neither manages to add suspense nor comedy in the story. Talking about the story, let me tell you, there is none. The characters deliver dialogues given to them without any expressions and the sequences too are not linked together in any way.

The suspense becomes a boring mix of events that does not make any sense. Even the climax of the movie is bizarre. Some good actors like Naseer, Anand and Amit are wasted completely in this weird mix of events. Also a few scenes are so immature that you feel you are watching a college documentary.

Technical aspects :

Because the movie was not marketed well, it will not attract a lot of audience and will be a blink and miss as the box office. Probably the makers knew that they were offering nothing good to be promoted. The songs are crappy and so is the editing. There are some real life shots in the film, which appear extremely messy.

Verdict :

On a whole, Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein can give you major headache. Miss this one and wait for Salman to give you the real fun. Rating : 1.5/5
