Shor in the city - Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.

Quite enjoyed this one.

Began on a slightly slowish note, but picked up and got quite engrossing.

It has a few parallel stories going on, a group of 3 friends, small time crooks. And there's the side angle - one of the crooks is newly married. An NRI who's returned to india, and is trying to start a business here, and what that can entail. (aside - Sendhil - drool drool. sigh. ). An aspiring cricketer, but he's also got a girlfriend. And thats another tale. With so many things going, the movie still manages to keep an even pace, and doesn't lose itself.

So why did I like the movie? The humour for one. And those subtle scenes, specially between the husband and wife. The pace and the story. And also the ending, as it teeters between the facile to the dramatic, but finally just ends, quite nicely.

Overall, rather rewarding.
