Bewakoofiyaan



Rating : 5/10
Release Date : 14th March, 2014
Time : 119 minutes
Director : Nupur Asthana; Writer : Habib Faisal; Music : Raghu Dixit
Starring : Ayushman Khurrana, Sonam Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor




A quite harmless film with no layers, depth or subtler shades to the characters, its predictable, and apart from Sonam’s horror show (she gets her expressions wrong half the time) is a decent film, good, clean, has some fun moments but is just too stretched time wise.



Ayushman loves Sonam, who has a terror, Rishi Kapoor, for a father. Retired from govt service, connected to the Home Secretary, an old-school bureaucrat, wears safari suits on formal occasions etc. And he is determined to thoroughly vet Ayushman before giving him permission to marry his precious daughter, who is doing well career wise (earning more than her boyfriend). When, a little later, Ayushman loses his job, things begin to get a little awkward.



The best moments of the film are those not involving Sonam ie between Ayushman and Rishi – especially in the second half as the relationship between them reaches a different footing. Both do justice to their roles. Sonam tries to garner attention by wearing a bikini but even that doesn’t work. The songs aren’t bad. Also, there is no vulgarity, crassness - its all innocuous, inoffensive, nothing to stay with you later, a few smiles here and there...nothing more, nothing less



There are often films which have nothing new to offer in their entire length versus what is shown in the trailer…this almost falls in that category.

I would think twice before spending my hard earned money watching a Sonam Kapoor movie.. Dear blogger saheb, my next feedback is related to the movie 'Queen' -- I strongly recommend.. you must watch it.. that is, if you have a liking for women oriented films. It's an out & out Kagana's film.. she is the heart & soul of Queen.. simple & natural not the plastic beauty she was made to appear in Krrish 3. With a strong message - People bury their hatches with a warm embrace. No matter what life has to offer one can have a delightful attitude. Her acting is at par with Sridevi in English Vinglish, Vidya Balan in Kahani and Priyanka Chopra in Barfi...The director ably depicts how an ignorant girl discovers new colours of life. We all have a secret Rani inside us who wants to take on the world with confidence. The evolution of a woman.. to push the boundaries & live life queen size.. It's worth watching for its sophisticated screenplay, healthy comedy & punches. Lisa Haydon looked sooo hot & sexy.. my son was drooling... Hope you enjoy the movie too...
