Adorably Nonsensical
24 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Adorably Nonsensical" - That's how I would label 'Banjo'.

Ritesh Deshmukh has carved a niche for himself - something his fellow Marathi manus must be proud of. It is rare that a Marathi (male) actor strikes big in Hindi and he is perhaps the first since Amol Palekar (who of course was in a different league). Therefore, it was expected that some successful Marathi director (Ravi Jadhav in this case) would decide to make a 'pure masala' Hindi movie with Ritesh in the lead. Something like a Punjabi filmmaker making a Hindi film with Jimmy Shergill or a South Indian filmmaker with Dhanush. They are assured of the captive audience and anything more is a bonus!

As for the movie, it is typical OTT tamasha (nonsense) with two adorable faces - both Ritesh Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri. Adorable because they have the sexy as well as the vulnerable look. Ritesh is developing in the Jackie Shroff mould and Nargis can pull it off with minimal acting skills like Katrina.

As for the story and the music, don't expect this to be a serious movie (like Rockstar) on a musician's life travails due to its title. Rather, it is a movie confused between drama and comedy.
