Fresh concept but badly executed
13 February 2019 | by i_odinSee all my reviews

Bazaar is perhaps one of the very few movies in Bollywood which shows the underbelly of the financial market. Hence I will like to praise the writers for the fresh subject matter. But having said that, unfortunately the film with it's predictable plot and cliched characters doesn't sustain that freshness for much long. At the beginning, the lead character of Rizwan seems promising with it's small-town-background-with-big dreams storyline. But soon after coming to Mumbai it turns into something tacky and "Bollywoodish".

Only relief comes from Saif Ali Khan's character. He is the star of the film. I wish the film had not given away so much space to Rizwan. Rohan was totally a misfit for the character and his performance was nothing short of being cringe-worthy.

And what can I say about the obsession for songs. They were a complete deal breaker for me. Weird songs. All sorts of songs. One remix. One Honey Singh. One with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan even. But none of them works for the story. I think it is high time Bollywood Studios should start reevaluate putting songs in between shots for no reason. Ruins the whole mood.

Special mention for the weirdly choppy editing. It made an illusion of fast pace even with a slow and stretched script.
