Comedy genre is quite popular in Bollywood and we keep witnessing the movies being made in this genre. But we all are well aware of the fact that only a few run at the box office and the rest lot simply fails badly. Badmashiyaan is another comic caper that carries the content, which reminds us of Yash raj Films’ Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl. Badmashiyaan carries the plot in which a girl cons three guys (her lovers).
The film is set in Chandigarh where Naari (Suzanna Mukherjee) lives. She is hot and sexy who knows just one thing – making money with easy source and to get it done she cons the lovers. Dev (Siddharth Gupta) starts loving her madly and for her, he takes loan from the bank to present her a house. Soon, she disappears and the lover gets mad and confused. He then hires a detective Pinkesh (Karan Mehra) to zero in Naari. In the meanwhile, Dev gets trapped in a bank robbery. He bumps into Palak (Gunjan Malhotra), who helps him thoroughly. Now Pinkesh is the next victim of Naari. On the other hand, Jazzy (Sharib Hashmi), a gangster, too is in search of his fiancée Naari who has conned him also. What happens then is what forms the story of Badmashiyaan.
There is nothing new in the plot. We have seen it many a time previously. Besides the script is the big failure of the film, as it carries unlimited flaws, which make the film boring and makes the viewers yawning. There are sub plots in the script as well, which create more confusion for the viewers. Humor has been inserted forcefully. The main culprit is Kushal Ved Bakshi, the person behind the screenplay. Direction is poor – who gets the credit for it? Obviously, Amit Khanna, who has executed this outing. Editing is mundane. Cinematography is okay. Music goes flat.
Suzanna is just about okay in her role. Siddharth Gupta is average. Karan Mehra is somewhat fine than the others. Sharib Hashmi looks fine at some points – overall is not in his elements. Rest of the cast is below average.
On the whole, Badmashiyaan is BEST AVOIDED. Bo need to spend your hard earned money on it.
