Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, Shor in the City is a film, which roams around 3 friends, who are low-level criminals in Mumbai. They sell copies of novels and steal from people in transports. And suddenly, they kidnap a famous author.


Tushar Kapoor is a low-level publisher who copies novels and sells them, along with Pitobash Tripathy and Nikhil Dwivedi. They end up kidnapping a famous novel writer. They then torture him and force him to give them his upcoming book’s manuscript, so they will be the first ones who publish it. There are two other characters as well. Sendhil Ramamurthy, an NRI, who comes to India, to start a small business of his own, and Sundeep Kishan, who’s an aspiring cricketer and wants to get in the under-22 Mumbai cricket team. But to do so, he needs 10 lakh rupees. The three criminals, first act like they are helping the NRI Sendhil, but then demand protection money. Sundeep plans to rob a bank to fulfill his dreams. The story revolves around all these five characters. The film contains some very dark comedy scenes, which will make your heart laugh.


The screenplay written by the duo, Raj-Krishna, along with Sita Menon, is remarkable. Tushar Kanti Rai has also done excellent work with the cinematography. Shor in the City is another good movie co-produced by Ekta Kapoor. The film was given U/A rating due to the use of some abusive words and the song, “Karma is a Bitch”. Overall, it’s quite a good movie, and it did average at box office.

Star Performances:

The core of the film are the actors Tusshar Kapoor, Nikhil Dwivedi, and Pitabosh Tripathy. Tusshar Kapoor’s acting is pretty remarkable in the movie. His dialogue delivery was far better than his previous films. Pitabosh’s role and his acting are crackling. The weakest part of the film was Sendhil Ramamurthy. His acting was bad. Also, his part and his story was another weak link. However, the rest of the actors are pretty convincing.
