Story and Analysis:
while coming into movie Aagey Se Right is as directionless a screenplay can get and as wrong an interesting story idea can turn out to be. The title is as irrelevant and unconnected to the film as much as the film is to entertainment.
Dinkar Waghmare (Shreyas Talpade) is a coward cop whose service revolver gets stolen on duty. The revolver keeps revolving around the city, changing hands from a multitude of boisterous characters and in process gets accidental and undue fame to the faint-hearted Dinkar, in the same way Govinda got, more than a decade back in Gambler .
In a parallel track, Kay Kay Menon almost reprises his role of an ISI agent from Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam both in terms of its characterization and comedy and fails as miserably as he did in the original. He’s come on a mission of mass-destruction to Mumbai but its love at first sight with bar dancer Pearl (Shenaz Treasurywala). A South Indian don (Vijay Maurya) tutors him on tapoori pickup lines to impress the girl and she actually gets awed.
The clichéd climax is set on a stage show under threat of a secret terror attack, where one hero gets to diffuse bombs by snipping off red-green wires, another guns down the villain and the heroine gets scope for another dance number. Alas there’s no scope for entertainment!
The shoddy screenplay of the film wanders as aimlessly as the gun keeps hanging around, giving no sensible flow to the narrative. Besides one doesn’t quite comprehend the mood of particular scenes on whether it’s intended as spoof or serious. Like a couple of lousy dream-sequence songs that are seemingly satirical but actually sad. Vijay Maurya overexerts the South Indian accent making most gags inaudible and incomprehensible. The humour resulting from the language barrier between Maurya and Menon becomes boring after the initial one-liners and the sher-o-shayari is stretched to intolerable limits.
The pacing is too fast because of which the film loses finer nuances in humour. Like the scene where you are introduced to the don’s underground den has some interesting wisecracks which you could lose out on if you aren’t attentive enough. One can’t blame you either for being inattentive towards the otherwise humdrum proceedings. The most amusing characters in the film are two plump bodyguards of Vijay Maurya who follow the don anywhere and everywhere he goes.
