From the very outset, Bewakoofiyaan is not a novel subject at all – we have seen this kind of plot many a times on Hindi film screen rather we have grown up watching this subject. The couple loves and the father or parents become the hurdle. This is what Yash Raj Films’ Bewakoofiyaan has to offer to the viewers. But the director Nupur Asthana tries to make the film lavish and interesting for the viewers with such an ordinary subject.
Well, pouring on Nupur’s debut ‘Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge’, one thinks that the latest venture would be a real joy-filled venture, but it doesn’t fit to the expectations utterly though the humor and the luminous execution provide true entertainment to the viewers. But the film utterly went straight opposite of the expectations.
Mohit (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a jobless marketing executive and he is in love with Mayera (Sonam Kapoor), who is the daughter of a senior officer V.K. Sehgal (Rishi Kapoor). Both are much in love. But the hurdle in between the two is Mayera’s father, who thinks that only an affluent guy can endow happiness to his daughter not a middle class or low income boy. But the old man nonetheless gives Mohit a chance to prove himself.
Well, the film reminds us many of past Bollywood romantic movies such as Kehta Hai Dil Baar Baar, Maine Pyaar Kiya and Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai. Number of more will come into your mind if you deeply think over. Thus, no novelty at all has been put into action into the narrative by Habib Faisal. Story is old and the scripting is nonetheless somewhat better.
Nupur tries hard to execute the film brilliantly on screen by injecting all the required ingredients to attract the viewers – humor and skin-show and everything on hand have been used and this ofcourse gives the positive edge to the film because there is nothing in story, so these things at the end work.
Editing is fine. Music is simply flat. Cinematography is first-rate.
Ayushmann Khurrana has done the job once again brilliantly as an actor. He is a fine actor without any doubt. Rishi Kapoor is simply awesome and marvelous. His brilliance is vivid in his character. Sonam Kapoor is flawless in her role and displays the skin-show in plenty. She is equally good in acting and glamor. Rest of the cast fills the bill also.
On the whole, Bewakoofiyaan does not offer anything new at all. With an old story, just average script, good direction, poor music, power-packed performances and abundance of skin-show – it makes a poor viewing. Just watch it for brilliance performances otherwise no need to spend hard-earned money on it.
