The movie begins with a whimper and ends in a whimper. In between there are gunshots, well-choreographed dances, diamond robbers, who are shown in flashes of animation and lots of leave-your-brains behind moments. But what works for the film are its stylized action scenes, but then again you cannot bamboozle the audience with non-stop fight sequences, and road chases with a background score you wish to block with both hands to your ears.
To begin with, as I mentioned in the opening line, this film has a tame start with Ayesha Takia and Zayed Khan taking off on a flight from South Africa to Italy. Zayed tells Ayesha a story, which is what CASH is about. Clearly this scene was avoidable and narrating the film in flashback mode made no sense at all. In fact, it is a very annoying factor which stands out like a sore thumb, because Ayesha has no role and Zayed could well have been shown dreaming. Secondly, the script is as confusing; it’s not clear what Dia Mirza’s role is nor Suniel Shetty’s, nor one ‘Uncle’ who apparently emptied five cartridges in Shetty’s back some years ago. There’s also no clear definition of Shamita Shetty’s role, who gets a chance to display her well worked-on abs, A La Salman Khan. Ditto Esha Deol.
More importantly, there is no central character; as most actors plays a cameo – Esha Deol Shamita Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh, Zayed Khan, Suniel Shetty, Dia Mirza. Only Ajay Devgan has some semblance of a role. It’s his scenes that stand out in a mish-mash of events.
Of the cast, though there is not much scope for one to perform, Riteish Deshmukh excels, and is fast emerging as a comic actor to reckon with. Esha Deol, as usual, sizzles in the dance numbers. Will someone give her a role with meat and look beyond her Dhoom machale exploits?
In short, this film runs on one leg so to speak. But on one leg you can’t reach far; you are bound to fall fast. And when you come out of the theatre, you can’t help going back to the tagline that reads; Earn money the hard way – Steal It!
That’s what is being done to the viewers; their CASH is being stolen and they don’t even realize it!!
