Cash Movie Review

10,341 views


After a lousy Dus that managed to make money at the box ofice comes Anubhav Sinha’s second action packed thriller Cash. So how does Anubhav Sinha manage to do with his second action venture? Is this movie worth a watch or is it one of those high on style and low on story movie? Read on to know…..

Cash Movie Story

I wonder why Bollywood is so attracted to robbery of diamonds. If you have to rob something, then it’s got to be diamonds. I wonder why? The story of Cash involves around a diamond heist. Ajay Devgan, Riteish Deshmukh, Zayed Khan have been given a task of robbing a rare diamond by Suneil Shetty and Dia mirza. Shamita Shetty is a police officer who is in love with Ajay Devgan. So the movie revolves around how the trio of robbers manage to rob the diamonds and their escape from the police.

Cash : Movie Review

Anubhav Sinha has looked in to every minute detail of Cash as far as the cinematography, the action scenes and the style is concerned. But guess he has forgotten to add the most important ingredients to his masala recipe : Screenplay, Editing and Story are bad to say the least.

The production values of Cash are A class. The action director, Anthony Stone, has done a good job. The scene where Ajay fights off the guys who eve-tease Shamita, the boat chase of Zayed and the car chasing scenes are totally top notch and manage to thrill you. The animation scenes are also visually brilliant but look out of place in the movie. Nonetheless a innovative concept. The background score of Cash by Vishal Shekhar is great and has your adrenaline rushing.

But where Cash totally messes it up is in the story telling department. The way Anubhav Sinha starts off the film with Zayed narrating a story to Ayesha Takia aboard a plane looks totally stupid and sterile. Anubhav’s way of telling the story is totally convoluted and confusing. He goes slow when there is no need to and he paces up when he actually needs to explain the details of the plot. The screen play is real shoddy. Is there a superlative to worst, then that describes the editing of Cash. Barring the title track which is an intro to the film, the rest of the songs though get your foot tapping, looked forced in into the film’s plot and just add into the reels of the film. Anubhav should have explained his story better instead of giiving valuable screen time to the songs.

On the acting front, Ajay Devgan and Riteish manage to give an average performance. Ajay does manage to get you laughing when you were just about to to fall into sleep. The actor who plays the role of a cruise manager also provides some comedy into the film with a good performance. Suneil Shetty and Zayed Khan look to be competiting for the Worst Actor Award. Esha Deol, Dia Mirza and Shamita Shetty are just glam dolls and that’s best for them and the audience too. And yes Ayesha Takia manages to make a fool of herself in a special appearance.

So overall Cash falls like many of the Bollywood film’s of today is high on style but low on story. And that’s a big turn off. When you have the money and you waste it just because of the minimal effort you took on execution of the story and screenplay. Then that offence is unpardonable. I hope Cash becomes a big flop at the box office. So that film makers realise that they cann’t fool the audience into watching a film just by luring them with high style and providing no story.

Movie Rating : 4/10
