Utt Pataang Movie 20111 Comment

By admin



I have often said that ‘small’ or cheap movies very often, have much more to offer than a few biggies that thrive on star value in the first place, content is a secondary issue for these films. Ticket paying public to insist on watching good movies and that is what a strong word of mouth plays an important role in the day. Positive feedback can lure viewers after the crucial opening weekend is over. Films like Tere Bin Laden, UDAAN, DO DOONI Chaar, PHAS GAYE RE BAND BAAJA Baaraat Obama and endorse this statement.

I truly believe that the audience for high-content movies is multiplied by the week. The viewer is willing to share his / her precious time to give their hard earned money to invest in a movie with content, which only goes to prove once again that the content is the backbone of business, low cost or absence of the top stars notwithstanding. The day of the underdog has finally arrived.

In the year 1970, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee popular comedy movies. The trend was continued by Sai Paranjpye. Early 1990s saw the emergence of David Dhawan, Priyadarshan and Anees Bazmee proving their mettle with slapstick. First-time director Srikanth V. Velagaleti merges comedy with live elements in his debut outing PATAANG UTT and the experiment succeeds largely.

UTT PATAANG is a difficult film to conceptualize, implement and pen. Besides, it requires seasoned players – known for their ability to produce natural performance – to the characters right. UTT PATAANG is not one of those movies that tell your brain at home. Rather, it requires your full attention. Blink an eye and you might miss a vital order and then the story would just be difficult to decipher.

UTT PATAANG is a smart film that gradually sucks you into her world. What sets it apart from comic thrillers is the fact that the whole drama takes place in a single night. At first, you wonder, hey, what happened to Saurabh Shukla? Where did he disappear from the restaurant? Then you wonder, why is Vinay Pathak girlfriend Mahie Gill desperate to have her stuff? Much later you ask, who’s that look-alike of Vinay Pathak and what he does in his apartment? But you get your answers in the post-interval portions and the rejoinder only highlight how intelligent the scenario is and how effectively the director, in terms of keeping you all enslaved by those 1.50 hours.

Last word? If the box themes of choice, head for UTT PATAANG immediately. This is not UTT pataang film in the name of entertainment!

UTT PATAANG speaks of incidents in one night. Vinay Pathak is on the verge of a break up, caught in a dangerous money deal gone horribly wrong. Caught in this chase for the pocket money, his private detective friend Saurabh Shukla, a heartbroken woman [Mona Singh], a French-obsessed gangster [Vinay Pathak, again] and the gangster Moll [Mahie Gill], all thrown into a dangerous game of cat and mouse chase. Layers of secrecy unfold and the game gets even worse as the night progresses.

For every comic thriller to succeed, it would clear the doubts – in the most simplistic way, your mind – before the movie reaches the final. The screenplay [writers: Saurabh Shukla and Srikanth V. Velagaleti] is almost perfect, except for one instance in the second half. The best part about this film is that blocking the Simpleton Vinay Pathak, all a crooked / downside him / her, making them seem very real. In fact, a double-crossing each other and that is why you feel ecstatic.

The scenario writers and director complement each other wonderfully. If the writing is waterproof, the direction is top notch. In fact, am writing a coin toss had gone for a lesser director the megaphone used. Arun Varma’s cinematography captures the look of the film. I would like to give brownie points to the editor [Sankalp Meshram] for the sharp editing. Sanjoy Chowdhary background score enhances the effect. Saurabh Shukla’s dialogue are realistic.

Vinay Pathak once again proves that he is a great actor. Although he gets typecast as a simpleton, the other role – with a French fixation – is what catches your attention. He also gets the French accent and pronunciation right. Saurabh Shukla is remarkable throughout. Mahie Gill springs a surprise. She plays a con woman who is emotionless, who is lusting for money is most convincing. Mona Singh is doing very well. Sanjay Mishra gets little space. Brijendra Kala is okay. Delnaaz Paul is fun. Murli Sharma and Govind Namdeo, the direction of the final. Both are perfect. Kurush Deboo is honest.

Overall, UTT PATAANG springs a pleasant surprise. It has a new premise and what makes it even more attractive is the way the material was carried out. In fact it is a difficult film to conceptualize, pen and run and should be appreciated by those who have an appetite for out of the box themes.
