The movie does not work, but Kajol makes a confident debut

3/10
Author: Peter Young from Earth
1 January 2010

I was quite curious to see this movie for quite some time. First, it is the film debut of the talented Kajol. Secondly, it is directed by Rahul Rawail, some of whose films I had really enjoyed watching, and other than that, I had seen some clips from the film which looked worthy. But then I watched it, and I was completely disappointed. Bekhudi is pretty much the typical Hindi melodrama. It is one of those countless Hindi films centring around star-crossed lovers whose love is impossible blah blah blah, and follows their struggle to be together against all odds. The film, though starts pretty well, fails for the most part and suffers from extremely poor writing. The story is filled with clichés and the proceedings are ancient. That said, there were also a few points which made it watchable. First, Kajol. She made a confident debut and tried her very best throughout the film. Her character is that of a decisive and stubborn young girl and though it is nowhere close to being a particularly good performance, one could foresee the great actress that she would become seeing her dedication to the role. Secondly, Nadeem-Shravan composed a great soundtrack of some melodious songs. Asha Bhosle was the voice of Kajol and sang all the songs beautifully. The film also marked the debut of Kamal Sadanah, who played Kajol's boyfriend. He was also pretty good, though it was one of the few films he has appeared in and no one really knows who he is today. The supporting cast includes Kajol's real-life mother Tanuja as her mother, and Farida Jalal, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Vijayendra Ghatge, among others. All of them were quite okay in their unimpressive roles. To sum it up, Bekhudi is not worth your time, but if you are a Kajol fan, you can take this one to watch her very first performance in a film. I think this reason is good enough.
