Storyline

Sabbarwahl is THE bad guy. He is evil, cunning and the biggest Con, all in the garb of a successful business entrepreneur. He frames Baweja - the honest man with principles in a bank fraud that costs Baweja his life, gets his assistant Saima behind bars and his family is left to face the music. Sabbarwahl himself is unscathed, scot free and goes on to commit one fraud after another and continues to live his high end debauched lifestyle. The VICTIMS: Mrs. Baweja. Sukhi (Baweja's son). Mintoo Hasan (Saima's husband). And Ballu (Sukhi's best Pal). The poor sods! The victims on the other hand are scraping by some scrawny jobs, surviving on meager monies and feeble hope. However they stick together whilst stringing random cons every now and then. Until you realize that all these random cons by the victims are not random at all. Written by Eros International

Decent Watch
4 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When you have ensembled cast of Dolly Ahluwalia , Ranvir Shorey and Vinay Pathak , your joy will know no bound and the excitement will double. Unfortunately , Bajatey Raho comes as a plain simple decent revenge heist which could be watched only once for its strong storyline and decent performances.

In order to repay 15 cr to the debtors , group of cons goes one step further to con a powerful business man to avenge their family's misfortune.

From the director of Dasvidaniya and Challo Dilli , Shashant Shah chooses a rare subject which has universal appeal but average direction and below par performance takes the film to no where. The screenplay and story will hold your attention nevertheless. Few scenes will tickle your funny bones but the rest of the film is lame. Songs are terrible and inclusion of the songs in the film just makes it worst. Dolly Ahluwali and Ravi Kishan are the soul of the movie. Tushar Kapoor as usual is wooden. Surprisingly , much was expected from Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey but both of them gave an average performances.

Bajatey Raho had potential to become non-stop comic caper but weak direction drags down the film to a decent watch . Average 2.5/5
