Shor In The City - Top Reviews

Tusshar Kapoor Nikhil Dwivedi and Pitobash Tripathi are three typical wasters who throng the streets of Mumbai looking for a high adrenalin fix.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Shor in the City is a terrific film. It’s surprising and disturbing and has a vein of rich, dark humor coursing through it. With great skill and inventiveness, directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK capture the chaos, absurdity and cacophony that constitut

Shor In The City doesn't quite make much Shor. The story had the potential to make a great film however its execution mires its prospects.

Shor in the City – one film that promises to deliver power-packed entertainment that doesn’t insult the intelligence of the viewer. With this being the duo’s third film itself (anybody remember Flavors?), they’ve already carved a niche of doing something

This isn't the first time a film captures the essence of the dark under belly of Mumbai. Neither is this a first attempt at weaving different stories that move towards a common end. So what makes SITC stand out in a crowd?

Now this is one film that makes you feel that if only the narrative would have been even more imaginative and the presentation sleeker, it would have not just turned into a gritty affair a la Guy Ritchie or a Quentin Tarantino cinema but also broken new grounds for Indian cinema. It does strive to do something unique though as it makes audience join the journey of three small time criminals (Tusshar Kapoor, Nikhil Dwivedi, Pitobash Tripathy).

That'd be tragic to say the least.
