Mohit is a marketing whiz kid vying for a step up the career ladder. Mayera is a financial brain with a penchant for shoes. They're a young middle-class corporate couple that's ambitious and likes the good life too. They work hard, they party hard. They're also passionately in love with each other. Their belief: You can live on love and fresh air. Their obstacle: Mayera's willful bureaucratic father V.K Sehgal. The obstinate old man believes that only a rich man can bring Mayera happiness and a mid-level executive like Mohit simply isn't good enough! Exactly how fragile are relationships in these times where consumer lifestyles dictate their very nature and intensity? Who gets the last laugh when recession strikes and the lack of money tests love... credit-card-junkies private-sector Mohit-Mayera; or safe-playing sarkari, V.K. Sehgal? Written by Yash Raj Films

A One-Time Watch... but nothing more!
14 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

BEWAKOOFIYAAN is a romantic comedy directed by Nupur Asthana, starring Ayushmann Khurana, Sonam Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor, in the lead roles.

The film revolves around Mohit Chadda (Ayushmann Khurana) who's the Senior Executive Marketing Manager at an airline company, and is engaged to Mayera (Sonam Kapoor). Life seems great, until he meets Mayera's father, who's interested in money more than love. And the whole situation becomes worse when Mohit gets fired from his job during recession.

Bewakoofiyaan, inspite of facing cold responses from critics upon watching the trailer, is quite a watchable film. The plot is extremely predictable and seems copied from several romantic comedies involving the father's hand in marriage. However, the one factor that makes Bewakoofiyaan very different is the reality check it offers about modern relationships. Most romantic films involve everything being just fine; however, Bewakoofiyaan, set in the backdrop of the Great Recession, offers a very realistic view of how money indeed is necessary for a relationship to work.

Inspite of all that, the film does have several flaws too; one of them being how the plot struggles to flow easily. Habib Faisal, who has written scripts for several great films like Band Bajaa Baraat, Ishaqzaade and Do Dooni Chaar, fails to stick one point. Case and point, he was trying to include the financial point of view of a relationship along with the idea of the main character impressing the father of his soulmate. The film would have been a lot better if it just stuck to one topic only.

The acting is quite good. Ayushmann Khurana offers an extremely good performance as a short-tempered, egoistic bankrupt man, and Rishi Kapoor offers a great performance, as always. Sonam Kapoor still needs a bit work in terms of her acting. Her fashion sense is extraordinary, however, after showing how well she can act in films like Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, she returns back to her earlier performance that does not show any improvement, whatsoever. That being said, Bewakoofiyaan is watchable as well for its great performances and chemistry between the two main actors.

The songs are quite alright to listen to, however, not extraordinary. Some of them are quite unnecessary in the film though and could have just been edited out of the film. In terms of the album, all of the songs are quite fine to listen to.

In conclusion, Bewakoofiyaan is just a one-time watch. As the name suggests, it is quite stupid to give it an entertaining screenplay; fortunately, it doesn't go over-the-top. It could've been much better though, but since it fails to do, it is quite forgettable. But if you are looking for quite a fun timepass at the movies, Bewakoofiyaan is the film you're looking for.

BEWAKOOFIYAAN- 5.5/10
