Storyline

After their restaurant is shut down, two Mumbai-based room-mates, Benny Kutty and Babloo Charan Lathi, take new jobs in Mirage Hotel and Ghungroo Bar respectively. While Benny adjusts himself positively in his new get-up and surroundings, Babloo is not exactly thrilled about working in a sleazy dance bar with foul-mouthed squabbling women. Things do change after Benny finds out that the hotel is a front for drugs and prostitution; and Babloo finds out that the bar dancers have entered this profession to educate their respective families and siblings. Then things take a turn for the worse when a news reporter, Mrs. Tejwani, uses her clout to shut dance bars down; and Benny's supervisor, Negi, asks him to procure dancing girls for his exclusive clientèle.

Simple movie
12 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Films like Benny and Babloo are a part of industry. They come without large promotion, no big stars, no item songs or skin shows to grab people's attention, but such films will be having a simple plot. Such movies are not that great, but the final result will be a smile on the audiences' faces. Yes, these movies never disappoint, because there is no much expectation linked to them. Benny and Babloo is a simple film, about two friends, Bennykkutty and Babloo. The movie starts when these two people get jobs in two places, one a five-star hotel and other a ladies bar. Initially, Benny is proud that he is working as a bellboy in a fivestar hotel, and he often teases Babloo for working as a waiter in a 'gira hua' ladies bar. But, gradually Benny comes to know the real faces of the people in the hotel, the activities going on there. The story has many other characters also. There are around 10 women in the Ladies Bar, there are people in Hotel, there is a struggling actor, a corrupt polititian etc etc. Most of the characters are well-developed, and therefore doesn't irritate us at any situation. There are some situations which moists our eyes, over all the movie makes us feel good, and also makes us think about what is happening in the society. The lead artists Kay Kay Menon and Rajpal Yadav perform equally well. Both are excellent in their roles. Among the other cast, everybody is good. The actress who played the eldest woman in the ladies bar deserves special mention. There is no much scope for music in the movie, and the cinematography is ordinary. On the whole, this is a simple film which can be watched. It is not a must watch, but it is worth a watch.
