Anil Kapoor conned yet again
Seems like Anil Kapoor's attempt in production backfires every time. First it was under-rated "Gandhi My Father" and now "over-rated" Shortkut. Heavily borrowing from Hollywood and Malayalam, Neeraj & Anees Bazmee forgot to give a shoe-shine to the product. Should have learnt an important lesson from their master, Priyadarshan.

For a comedy to succeed, one doesn't need good comic actors. It eventually boils down to the content and timing. Sadly the actors have pushed their limit to the get only the latter right. The screenplay is slow and dialogues painfully stale resulting in a yawn.

Love-track between Akshaye & Amrita starts off on a "Notting Hill" note and ends up "Akele Hum Akele Tum" even before you have settled in. Circuit seems have gone over Arshad Warsi's head and it shows. Chunky Pande was wasted.

It was unwarranted for the plot to move on foreign locales and a tail of producers to go with. And one of the producer was a bad hybrid of Paresh Rawal & Rajpal Yadav. Good Samaritan's were thrown in plenty in addition to coincidences in the plot - cinematic liberties might be an apt word perhaps. Amrita Rao's parents were a straight dig at Ameesha Patel, eh?

Verdict: Poor show... bad conning.
