By messing with the screenplay and casting fading stars and B-grade heroines, Neerraj Pathak’s Right yaaa Wrong becomes a mind-numbing replica of Above Suspicion (1995), with Sunny Deol slipping into Christopher Reeve’s wheelchair.
After suffering an injury in the line of duty, cop Ajay (Deol) loses the use of his legs. Swearing to be “the one in the million” who will walk again, he is seen suffering endlessly and plotting his own death.
Alongside, his wife (Eesha Koppikar) is having a rollicking affair with her brother-in-law. But when the wife and her lover are found murdered, Ajay’s colleague and friend Vinay (Irrfan Khan) begins to wonder if there’s more to Ajay’s alibi than meets the eye. The film ends with a courtroom scene, but not before you’ve seen Deol grimace and grunt, Koppikar wriggle in cringe-worthy love-making scenes, and Konkona Sen Sharma (who appears inexplicably) tell Ajay’s son, “Baby, mummy is no more, mummy is in heaven, baby”, before slipping into a lawyer’s gown.
The characters lack backstories and the actors are comical in a thriller (with only Khan keeping his respectability). There’s very little right about Right yaaa Wrong.
Right yaaa Wrong released in theatres on Friday.
