Even though she is visiting the holy city as part of UTV Stars' programme 'Star in the city', Bollywood actress Amisha Patel plans to use the godsent opportunity to get a feel of the real Punjab by meeting her hundreds of fans, take a round of Amritsar as a 'normal' tourist and savour the delicacies the holy city is known for the world over. Attired in a yellow 'kurti' and orange 'salwar' matched with a bright pink 'dupatta', 'The Gadar' star told media persons on Monday, "UTV Stars in the City is a novel concept to bring stars closer to their fans. I visited Amritsar during the shooting of Gadar and some other movies also but never got a chance to roam around like a tourist in the holy city."I have heard a lot about the 'phulkari dupattas' and the 'sarson da saag' one gets to eat here. Now that since I am here, I am going to do a lot of shopping and taste all the food the city is famous for. Pointing out that Amritsar was a nice place to visit and the locals were equally good, Amisha said that she was really looking forward to seeing the holy city. "I love Punjabi movies. I have seen 'Jatt and Juliet' and 'Carry on Jatta'; I really liked these. In fact, I think, Bollywood producers, who have made remakes of hit southern films, should also start remaking Punjabi hits," she remarked She said she was excited to see audience reaction to her latest movie 'Shortcut Romeo' in which she is portraying a negative character for the first time. "My next movie 'Desi Magic' has been produced by my own Amisha Patel Productions. I have essayed a double role in it: one of a Punjabi girl and another of a spoilt brat from the West. You will get to see farms, tractors and shades of Punjab in it," she signed off.

UTV Stars took AmeeshaPatel to Amritsar where she met her fans post which she visited Hall bazaar and shopped for traditional Punjabi suits. She even made some lassi to escape the heat! She ended the day by doing some seva at the Gurudwara!

Today she was talking to her fans live on BIG FM 92.7 and visited some farms where she tried her hand at farming!

Watch Shortcut ROMEO Video Review and Public View

Subhash K Jha speaks about Shortcut Romeo

There are two ways of doing a full-on masala film. You either turn it on its head and poke fun at ridiculous cinematic conventions. Or you treat the stereotypical characters and sacred cows of our cinema with full seriousness.
Shortcut Romeo takes the midway route. It seems so full of the old-world formulistic flavour and the stench of the familiar that parts of the pulsating aggressive storytelling actually feel like a spoof.

So we have the film's unfaithful wife Monica (Amisha Patel) and her slimy lover (Jatin Garewal) making out in a golf turf. Why any affluent couple would use the grass to manoeuvre their itching ass when they could afford the poshest of duplex to do the 'needf..k' is beyond logical explanation.

And then Slimy Lover tells Unfaithful Wife, "First time when you do it (cheat in a marriage) you feel bad. Then it becomes your style."

Er, how stylish! Come again?

But please don't laugh. First-time Hindi director Susi Ganesan is dead serious. The film shot at the speed of sound, Himesh Reshammiya's sound, is filled with bizarre twists and turns. It's basically the story of a woman who cheats on a saintly tycoon of a husband(effectively played by Rajesh Shringapure) who has a massive portrait of Rabindranath Tagore in his bedroom, and a cheesy blackmailer named Suraj who believes in taking risky short-cuts to get rich.

This is not the first film about a cheating wife and a blackmailer. Reena Roy and Naseeruddin Shah had done the roles with heart-stopping tension in Bezubaan. Shortcut Romeo scores in the way the plot paces out its drama in the ongoing friction between the fornicating wife and the avaricious blackmailer.

Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the cheesy go-getter with a schemer's delight. His eyes glint when he talks of teasing more money out of Monica. He drools when she transfers cash into his trashy life. Alas, some of the narrative's display of the protagonist's excessive hedonism is just an excuse for African tourism. The Kenyan expedition reads like a botched-up touristic brochure with Black African women performing item songs to the tune of Sheila ki jawani and Chikni chameli.

Bad idea, Mr Ganesan. Even worse is the director himself showing up in the second-half as the cheated husband's detective-friend. Susi Ganesan's accent is so thick it slices the gamboling narration into smithereens. At least for a while. But then again the film gathers momentum towards the end-game .The finale is a breathless whammy with Neil making a run for his freedom, quite literally, with the narrative panting behind him.
Shortcut Romeo is redeemed by a strong message on today's 20-something's yearning for materialism. And when our Shortcut Romeo finds his short-skirt Juliet (Puja Gupta, pretty) there is a delicious irony attached to the association. The film's most vivid interludes go back to Neil's childhood to show how he learnt to be corrupt, acquisitive, and inquisitive, at a tender age. Some of the action sequences with Neil, specially one key fight with African tribals, are first-rate. But then the songs-oh my God!-they pop up at the most inopportune moments like Amisha Patel's eloquent twin assets. I mean her eyes, of course.

In spite of its massive flaws (including the cheesy dialogues) Susi Ganesan's stylish shocker of a thriller manages to stay constantly one step ahead of the audience. A coolly crafted cat-and-mouse game Shortcut Romeo finds Neil giving grit to the gripping goings-on. The last half-hour is a knock-out.

But the overall product could have been far less retrogradatory in tone. Nonetheless enjoyable while it lasts.

Shortcut ROMEO Review by Taran Adarsh

Shortcut Romeo
By Taran Adarsh, 21 Jun 2013, 09:08 hrs IST
Just last week, FUKREY depicted the shortcuts the youth of today indulge in to accomplish their dreams and desires. SHORTCUT ROMEO also talks of the shortcut the male protagonist undertakes to lead a comfy life. The film, directed by Susi Ganesh, is a remake of the film-maker's successful Tamil film THIRUTTU PAYALE.

Although a remake, Susi takes the essence and gives it a complete makeover. The scale is larger. Also, a few modifications have been made to cater to the pan-India audience. The plot orbits around blackmail and deceit and Susi makes sure the thriller is embellished with several edge-of-the-seat-moments to create an anxiety-crammed environ. Although the film has its share of blemishes [more on that later], one cannot overlook the fact that Susi knows the grammar of film-making right and makes an impressive debut in Hindi films.

Suraj [Neil Nitin Mukesh], a good for nothing youth, arrives from Goa to Mumbai. He chances upon a couple indulging in love making on the lawns of a golf course. He shoots the act and later learns that the lovers, Monica [Ameesha Patel] and Ashish [Bunty Grewal], wouldn't mind shelling out a couple of lacs to keep their affair a secret from Monica's husband [Rajesh Shringarpure].

Suraj starts blackmailing Monica, demanding money for the footage he has shot. Monica has no choice but to succumb to the blackmail. In the meanwhile, Suraj falls in love with Sherry [Puja Gupta] and has a change of heart. But Monica decides to get even with Suraj and a dangerous cat and mouse game ensues…

Almost 31 years ago, BEZUBAAN narrated the story of a housewife [Reena Roy] trying to keep an affair concealed from her husband [Shashi Kapoor] when a blackmailer [Naseeruddin Shah] comes knocking on her door. Although the plot of BEZUBAAN bears a striking resemblance to SHORTCUT ROMEO, the similarities end there. For, not just the blackmailer, but each and every character in the movie has grey shades. That's one of the prime reasons why this cat and mouse saga seems fascinating.

Susi embellishes the film with several attention-grabbing moments. The characters of Neil and Ameesha, for instance, give the film the required edge. Additionally, Susi knows how to keep the audience attention arrested. The screenwriting never falls prey to the tried and tested formulaic stuff that Bollywood is known for. Even the conclusion leaves you completely shocked [it's super!], since the spectator had never imagined the film would end on that note.

The film loosens its grip slightly at times. Besides, the drama leading to the climax could've been crisper. Also, the romantic portions are not as persuasive as the thrilling moments.

Susi is an accomplished storyteller, no two opinions on that. His handling of a complex subject deserves immense praise. Besides, he ensures that the film bears an affluent, striking look all through. Aiding him in giving the film a rich luster is the DoP, who captures the scenic locales of South Africa dexterously on celluloid. Himesh Reshammiya's music gels well with the mood of the film. 'Khali Salaam Dua' is easily the pick of the lot. Action is, generally, okay, but the one in Masai Mara is top notch. Dialogue are a mixed bag.

Neil gets a solid part to display his talent and he grabs the opportunity with his hands. The actor, who left a strong impression in DAVID earlier this year, is superb, displaying the varied streaks in his character with flourish. This film could prove to be a game-changer in his career. Ameesha gets an equally challenging character and she's in top form here. Also, she makes sure she doesn't go over the top since that would make her look like a vamp, which she's not. Puja Gupta, who displayed abundant confidence in GO GOA GONE, enacts her part with confidence, although the focus is on Neil and Ameesha chiefly.

Rajesh Shringarpure is efficient. Jatin Grewal is passable. Vrajesh Hirjee provides a few laughs in the sequence that he's in. Errol Peter Marks, Ashutosh Kaushik and Meherzan Mazda are perfect as Neil's friends. Susi Ganesh [plays the detective] is appropriate.

On the whole, SHORTCUT ROMEO is a well-made, stylish crime story with high-voltage drama as its highpoint. It may not boast of A-listers in its cast, but it has ample entertainment and edge-of-the-seat moments to offer. I suggest, give this one a chance!
