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

Disappointingly Clichéd... Even The Cast Jogs Memories Of Yesteryear Flicks. ♦ 39%
26 July 2013 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Throughout the movie, you get a feeling that you have watched that sequence, that character, that plot point and heard that joke, that song, that theme before. Well, it's not deja vu. Bajatey Raho rests upon clichéd plot, borrowed characters, irritatingly predictable climax & amateur writing.

The cast has been a juxtaposition of characters as well as the actors who portrayed them in films like Khosla Ka Ghosla. And so is the plot. The same old revenge tale to induce little melodrama to do what to the viewers? Well, I can't figure that clause out. Neither could I interpret why they HAD to bring in romance (with songs, yes) & SMS jokes (Maybe to lure lovebirds & youngsters; of course we all know what the two-girl item song was intended for). It's all so amateur from the maker(s) who gave us Dasvidaniya. Challo Dilli was a disappointment, as well.

I respect the performances by Dolly Ahluwalia, Ravi Kishan, Ranvir Shorey & Vinay Phatak. But I, somehow, got bored by the narration. My mother seconds that. Since, I have followed every other movie by every other actor of this flick, it left me neutral. 3.9/10!

"Gone there, seen that!" is the apt phrase that comes to my mind now. Although, it has its moments.

BOTTOM LINE: For people who haven't watched the movies that listed & are socially inept can go for it and have some laughs on borrowed humor, but for avid cinema-holics, this is not recommended.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity: Very Mild | Nudity/Vulgarity/Sex/Mouth-Kiss: No | Violence/Gore: No | Drugs: No | Smoking/Alcohol: Mild
