Suraj (Neil Nitin Mukesh) a very sincere and honest boy, goes on the wrong track when he learns that his father is doing wrong things. One fine day he catches Monica (Ameesha Patel) making love with her Golf Coach who is her husband’s best friend and records their video. From there onwards Suraj blackmails Monica and lives life king size. Monica plans to teach Suraj a lesson and with help of Sherry (Puja Gupta) but then Suraj and Sherry fall in love. How all this mess is cleared is what all the film about.
Neil Nitin Mukesh is trying very hard to make his mark in bollywood but then his timing is very wrong. He is doing some different kind of role in his every film but all his hard work is going waste since his films are going unnoticed. Hard luck Neil. Ameesha Patel and Puja Gupta both are eye candies. No proper role. Ameesha has an important part to play but then she fails to impress us. The other cast is simply avoidable. Performances in the film are below average.
Director Susi Ganeshan had a nice plot but could not bring out a nice story on screen that nicely. Bollywood has Abbas-Mustan who are unbeatable in this genre. Very bad execution of a good script. Since Bollywood has seen the work of Abbas-Mustan this was nothing new for Bollywood audience. Story and Screenplay both could have been little better. The editing of the film is bad. Songs come and go unnecessarily spoiling the pace of the film and make you bore. Cinematography is above average due to the film being shot in some beautiful locations.
Overall Shortcut Romeo has a few attention grabbing sequences but then that’s all about the film. The film fails to keep you engaged throughout. No need of taking any sort of shortcut or long cut to meet this Romeo in theaters, better spend time with your own Romeo or Juliet.
