Storyline

Karan, Tanzing and Chandu complete their college studies and join hands with a black-marketeer, Archie, who gets them to travel to Bangkok for money-laundering purposes. En route they meet with leggy Jaipur-based Bulbul, and after the completion of this mission, the foursome decide to put their heads together to get rich quickly. Karan disappoints his father, Sajjan, by giving up on getting an MBA Degree, and the four take their success to New York where they proceed to scam businesses with considerable success; but as the money starts pouring in, so too does problems with alcohol, gambling, and bitterness between members of the group.

Goofs

At the start of the movie, it is clearly mentioned that the year is 1994, when Mumbai was known as Bombay. Yet, at the airport, the sign prominently shows 'Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport'. This name (CSIA) was adopted only in 2000, under the then Prime Minister AB Vajpayee. See more »

The Six-Day-Script is the real king!
7 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

God provides everyone what they deserve but doesn't fulfill their greed.. This statement holds truth for today's youth who wish to attain the height no one has ever reached without doing the required hard work.. Badmash Company depicts this thought beautifully.. Intelligent script combined with superb individual performances resulted in a 2.30 hrs of light entertainment.. Awesome... Brilliant... Superb... were the words coming out of the mouths of those coming out of the theaters after watching this movie.. Honestly speaking watching the movie was real fun..

Set in 90's a group of four(Shahid, Anushka , Vir Das and Meiyang Chang) decide to work against the system and earn money and height quickly by their unorthodox methods... They work brilliantly by making unique plans and taking accurate decisions.. The first half is a fun ride with the rise of their company and the chemistry between the friends and between Shahid and Anushka..

Things start getting little repetitive and predictive in the second half when success gets inside Shahid'd head and he eventually runs of out of his luck and starts claiming himself the spearhead of the group and even starts calling himself the god.. His pride makes him friendless and he ends up behind the bars.. Then the usual self realization comes and he learns that money is not the only thing which makes a man rich but the glory and respect he earns from others by doing a legal job in a commendable manner makes a man rich.. Then he goes back to beginning and starts doing the right job in an extraordinary way..

Parmeet Sethi has struck the right chord with his first directorial venture.. A script written in six days cannot get better than this.. The dialogues especially the one liners are hilarious.. Cinematography is commendable.. Pritam's music is strictly OK! Amongst the actors its Anushka who steals the show by her performance.. After Rab Ne her transformation is superb.. Shahid is absolutely fine with his role.. His style and way of doing everything will be remembered.. Meiyang Chang too was fine considering the fact this was his acting debut.. Vir Das was absolute delight with his funny yet sensible acting..

To conclude, Badmaash Company is a complete surprise.. An intelligent entertainer.. A must watch for all!!

My Rating: 7/10

Thanks & Regards
