Money & Talent wasted shamelessly
6 October 2013 | by ajit2106See all my reviews

'Besharam', again an awful and hackneyed movie has joined the list of masala movies. It is really hard to understand the structure of such kind of cinema which does not serve any purpose for the reason that it spoils the image of evolving Indian Cinema. A lot of money and talent are being wasted in such ventures and consequence is futile-in this era, such kind of cinema is running parallel with imaginative and quality cinema which should be stopped in order to create some peculiar and though-provoking films.

Abhinav Kashyap tries to reinvent the charisma of "Dabangg"- it had Salman with some good elements in contrast he now presents "Besharam" with a wafer thin plot, clichés, songs in almost every frame, Ranbir's butt cleavage, warehouse climax etc. It basically relies on Kapoor's but fails to get anywhere near to an entertainment due to an absurd screenplay and plot. Abhinav has great actors but it is impossible to act without a script.

BESHARAM is Ranbir's debut with masala film, which is a fiasco. I wonder what made him work on 'Besharam', maybe because lately every A-list actor is working on these kinds of films.

'Besharam' is set in 'Delhi', like most of the movies. Babli (Ranbir Kapoor) raised in an orphanage, is a street smart car mechanic who steals cars and gives all the money to his orphanage. He falls in love with Tara (Pallavi Sharda) but inadvertently steals her car. Now Babli decides to get her car back from Chandel (Javed Jaferry), a criminal.

A lot of things happen in the zig-zag screenplay but nothing is consistent. You might be amused in some moments but those are forced and do not go well with the narration. It contains some crude and toilet humor with awkward body languages which looks over the top and unnecessary. Jaaved Jaffrey's first villainous act leaves an impression but in second half he has been portrayed as a caricature still he managed the expressions right.

The love story is of completely off track with indigestible change of heart is involved in it. The lead pair looks indifferent with Pallavi Sharda's stiff expressions and mannerisms; she looks distant and dances violently. On the other hand Rishi-Neetu chemistry looks better than Ranbir-Pallavi.

Like "Dabangg", Besharm also tries to create the room for some gravity-defying action sequence in mostly in the ware house but does not offer anything new. Rishi Kapoor suddenly becoming Sunny Deol looks atrocious as he pulls out the freaking hand pump is atrocious and awkward.

You do have to brace yourself for forced songs in every 15 minutes, it annoys you more and leaves no stone unturned to ruins whatsoever remains. You will forget the songs as soon as it finishes and movie goes to the next frame.

Ranbir Kapoor took the affliction on his shoulders to maintain the graph of the character which he does brilliantly nonetheless. Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor do the usual stuff effortlessly. Jaaved Jaaferi is really good and leaves a mark for his upcoming films.

All the efforts go in vain because nothing is memorable due to the weak script and narrative. In a nut shell, you will only like it if you have lost faith that there are some good movies.
