Storyline

Badal (Bobby Deol) is a naive but intelligent young man who comes from a small village to the big city. He is introduced to city life by Damru (Harish Patel) who now calls himself Danny. When Badal attends college, he meets with pretty and percocious, Tina Oberoi (Twinkle Khanna), and after a few misunderstanding and misadventures, both fall in love. This is not taken well by Tina's dad, (Raj Babbar), who hopes to marry Tina with his friend's (Bharat Kapoor) son. Tina's dad complains to the college principal (Vijay Kashyap), but Tina testifies in favour of Badal. Tina's dad then asks a corrupt cop, Neghi, who is the city's Assistant Commissioner of Police, for assistance. Neghi arrests Badal on trumped up charges and imprisons him. Badal's dad (Mukesh Khanna) also comes to the big city to try and make sense of why Badal ended up in prison. Tina's dad gives a contract to Neghi to have Badal killed, to which Neghi agrees and hires a gang of ruthless outlaws to hunt and kill Badal. He ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not bad but unoriginal
28 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Barsaat was hyped to be the super-hit launch vehicle for Bobby and Twinkle, both children of Bollywood superstars, Dharmendra and Rajesha Khanna/Dimple Kapadia, respectively.

The movie, however, failed to excite movie-goers in the opening weekend and only picked up some traction in later weeks. And, understandably, so.

Barsaat adds nothing new to the Bollywood scene. The story is clichéd and completely unoriginal. There must be at least a dozen movies involving a village boy/girl falling in love with a city girl/boy only to be prevented (at least temporarily) from living happily ever after by the boy/girl's ultra-rich father. It is not too surprising that Bobby and Twinkle selected Barsaat to launch their ultimately unsuccessful movie careers.

The movie is redeemed to some extent by decent songs and acting, especially by Babbar and Denzongpa.

Overall, the movie is watchable and even entertaining, but don't raise your expectations too high.
