The posters are far better than the movie
An idea which may sound interesting in a story sitting with the producers needs to be conceptualized and shot in an equally interesting style. But many times we have seen this going the wrong way, which exactly is the problem with "Aagey Se Right". With a one line thick story thought and a terrible messy screenplay the movie doesn't deserve to be called a comedy.
A newly appointed Cop loses his service revolver right in the start and then keeps on moving from one situation to another in search of his lost property. Along with this, there is another angle of a Jihadi terrorist falling in love with a young girl, looking for a break in the show business. The promising idea which may have worked in a 90 min English movie gets completely wasted in the Bollywood style project. The reason being that we are still forced to add more additional sub-plots and unwanted songs into the screenplay which actually spoils a good thought and results in an unpleasant clutter.
Had it been only these two plots moving into each other, the movie could have been an engrossing flick. But the overcrowded characters running with their own parallel story lines didn't work out at all leading to a complete disaster. The director along with his talented star cast tries desperately hard to make you laugh, but there are actually only few scenes in the movie where you can even smile effortlessly. The screenplay keeps wandering like a lost car on a road moving left and right without any specific directions to go.
With Kay Kay & Shreyas Talpade being there in the cast, the movie was expected to be at least a watchable attempt for once. But surprisingly, even they are unable to perform in their unexciting and loosely scattered scenes written uninterestingly. Kay Kay seems to be miscast and Shreyas fails to create any laughter with his innocent attempts. In fact there is only one person, who proves his comic timing once again and he is Vijay Maurya, the Mumbai underworld link of the terrorists. He is really amusing in his few scenes along with Kay Kay. Among the ladies, Shehnaz Treasurywala is simply there because of her pretty face and I really don't know what was Mahi Gill doing in this movie after her impressive performances in "Dev-D" & "Gulaal". It was clearly a wrong choice made in an important phase of her career. Shiv Pandit & Shruti Seth don't impress, but the veterans Rakesh Bedi and Bharti Achrekar excel in their small parts.
Musically, the movie has nothing to offer great and same can be said about its Cinematography and Background Score. Editing is unimpressive as it leaves many loose ends remaining unexplained. The movie should have been edited more severely removing all the non essential scenes like that of Shreyas mother coming again & again into the narration.
Director Indrajit Nattoji has surely made this movie with good intentions, keeping it clean and tidy for the family audiences. But he couldn't deliver a highly enjoyable comedy despite of having the support of a big production house. However the biggest positive point I see in these small budget experimental types of movies is that they provide an opportunity to many budding technicians, music directors and lyricists who want to prove themselves in the industry. But in case of "Aagey Se Right", its posters are far better than the movie, so you can easily give it a miss.
