Besharam Movie Review : 'Treat This Movie The Way We Deal With All 'Besharam's'...'

No. Of Views : 4248

Dated : October, 2, 2013 BY

Expectations:

In the mid 70's Amitabh Bachchan was having a dream run over the box office by churning out one after one hits and super hits. His movies quenched the thirst of his fans and the critics. Right from the 1973 till mid 80's almost every year had few hits from this megastar. There were though few big bumpers which had diluted his smooth run at the box-office. One such big film was 'Besharam' (1978) co starring Sharmila Tagore and Amjad Khan directed by comedian Devan Verma. There were lot of hopes riding over this movie and everyone knew that with the star power of Amitabh, this movie too will be a huge hit. But things dint turn out as expected and it sunk from day one itself. Almost after three and half decades we witnessed the promos of its namesake starring superstar Ranbir Kapoor under the direction of Abhinav Kashyap. The expectations were high from its first promo as Ranbir Kapoor's last few films have been in the 100 crores club along with Abhinav's last release 'Dabangg'. But along with the high expectations one also get a feeling that this movie might not have the required magic and could turn out to be a weak or a disappointing film. So let's find out whether this 'Besharam' may prove as a bumper in the dream run over the box-office for Ranbir Kapoor just like it did for Amitabh Bachchan or might surprise us by underplaying and delivering another ace masala entertainer on the lines of 'Dabangg'.

Besharam Review

Story:

'Besharam' is story of an orphan Babli {Ranbir Kapoor} who steals car for a living. He supports the orphanage by the money he earns through stealing cars. One day he steals the car of Tara {Pallavi Sharda} and sells it to Bhim Singh Chandel {Javed Jaffery}. When Babli discovers that the car belongs to the lady he loves the most, he decides to get it back and hand it over to Tara. How does Babli steal the car back from Bhim Singh Chandel and avoids the cops (Rishi Kapoor - Neetu Singh) is what the entire film is all about.

Besharam Movie Review

Screenplay & Technicalities:

The Story is just a plain one liner and relies only on its screenplay and moments. The screenplay in the first half takes its time to establish its premise with lots of songs and comical moments, which entertains you in bits. But as the movie proceeds towards its second half it starts to drag and at times even struggle to move forward due to the wafer thin story line. Still, there are some enjoyable scenes like Rishi-Ranbir's first meet, Ranbir at Pallavi's house, Ranbir proposing Pallavi followed by Rishi-Neetu romantic scene, Ranbir teasing Pallavi on their journey, Neetu Singh Kapoor's reaction over the money, Rishi Kapoor's 'Gaddar' act followed by Ranbir-Javed Jaffery comical conversation in the climax. These scenes are not great or memorable but at least keeps you entertained in this script less film. Right from the first scene, where Javed Jaffery's henchman fires a rocket launcher over a police vehicle, one gets to understand that the movie is full of loud and over the top moments. There are some gross scenes like the Rishi Kapoor's toilet scene and Ranbir's butt show {His females fans might have a treat}. Also Pallavi Sharad's sudden change of heart followed changes in Ranbir looked forced and fake. There are only few entertaining moments in the second half and rest everything is dragging and boring. Camera work is average and nothing great.

Music & Direction:

Music by Lalit Pandit is not that great, but due to good choreography looked well in the film. There is not even a single chartbuster song in this film which has half a dozen songs indulged in it. You will love the choreography of 'Besharam', 'Love Ki Ghanti', 'Lut Gaye' and 'Hand Uthake'. 'Dil Ka Jo' is a sweet song. 'Piya Re' and 'Aa Re' should have been strictly omitted as they dilute the flow of the film in big way.

Director Abhinav Kashyap's directorial debut film 'Dabangg' is considered to be one of the best masala films from today's times. Right from the script, performances, star power, dialogs, screenplay, music, action and drama this movie had everything stored in it. In 'Besharam' except for the star power and decent performance by the main actors there is nothing which even comes close to 'Dabangg' or even 'Dabangg 2' which was badly directed by Arbaaz Khan. The efforts are missing out here in 'Besharam' which looks like a half baked product made only to cash in over Ranbir's star power. It's a huge disappointment for all those who loved 'Dabangg' and were waiting to see again the magic of Abhinav Kashayap.

Performances:

Ranbir Kapoor is one of the finest actors in today's time. He has portrayed his potential as an actor in various types of films. His last film was proper rom-com which churned out lots of moolahs and made him a huge superstar. Despite of being a misfit for such types of films, he still entertains you to the fullest in this movie. Subtract him and you will understand the difference and notice a huge vacuum in the film. Pallavi Sharad is below average in terms of looks and performance. She lacks the heroine power and was total disaster. Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh look adorable even today and do their part with grace. Though, the magic of 'Do Dooni Chaar' was missing. Javed Jaffery was average in his weak role. Amitosh Nagpal was bit over the top.

So bol meri "FILMI KHOPDI" iss film mein kitna hain Dum?

Dum? Well the only dum this movie has is, some entertaining moments by Ranbir Kapoor along with his parents Rishi & Neetu Kapoor. Besides that, the movie is flooded with songs, unwanted scenes, dragging screenplay and weak story line. The name 'Besharam' strikes back and will hamper the star power of Ranbir Kapoor in big way. We hope and pray that he does not repeat such mistakes again and thus would treat this movie just the way we deal with all the besharam's, ....ignore it.
