Neil Nitin Mukesh delivers another good performance in Shortcut Romeo. But even with one good performance after another he hasn’t yet received his due as far as good roles are concerned. His plight however is not as grave as Ameesha Patel’s. After a couple of small roles as the quintessential bimbo, she comes back strongly as the rich infidel wife in this film.
A typical Bollywood fast – paced thriller with south style action Shortcut Romeo is definitely not boring. With twists and turns at every step (especially the second half), the film is a fast one despite being a lengthy affair. South director Susi Ganesh ventures into Bollywood with this remake of his own 2006 super hit ‘Thiruttu Payale’.
