Utt Pataang
DIR: Srikanth Velagaleti
CAST: Vinay Pathak, Saurabh Shukla, Mahie Gill, Mona Singh
Rating: *

Two bleeding hearts find love, two opportunistic cads fall out of love, and two people who happen to get it right form this sorry merry-go-round of a film.

WHAT'S HOT: The casting seems apt. Sadly, it's for a film that the stars will like best left out of their resume.

WHAT'S NOT: Capers involving money passing several pairs of hands is something that became over and done with, with Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. Several pretenders in the genre -- better ones than this, I might add -- have made it to our screens more often than not. This film has nothing going for it. The dialogue is dull, the screenplay is in disarray and the performances are largely uninspired. That last bit, is a surprise, given the multitude of comic talent the director had at his disposal.

What's worse, the fools who made this film, don't know when to take a hint. If you haven't yawned your way out by intermission, the tying of loose ends during the end credits will definitely put you to sleep.

WHAT TO DO: Aisi utt pataang filmein dekhke waqt aur paisa barbaad mat karo. This one's a definite miss.
