Befikre is a classic YRF movie. It is lavishly produced, has beautiful people living in exotic places doing all sorts of very hip things like making out in a convertible and wearing Playboy underwear with crystals (him) or stripping in a library (her). It makes you forget real life for a while as you enjoy their befikre story. The movie also forgets that there is something called drama and emotional tension that makes it worth watching. Otherwise it becomes a series of music videos in Paris.

 Dharam comes to Paris to be a stand-up comic in a desi nightclub. Shyra is born of Indian parents but is fully French in her thinking which translates as having a lot of relationships. She also speaks fluent Hindi since she mainly works with Indian tour groups. Boy meets girl, sparks fly but they decide that they will never succumb to love as that robs them of having any fun. Fair enough. Now you know what will happen next and you wait for the emotional part to begin. It does and ends very quickly leaving you with some crazy slapstick mess which is not even remotely funny. The movie follows a totally trite and predictable trajectory that leaves you with nothing to look forward to except the end.  

 Ranveer Singh as Dharam is as usual effervescent, a tad too much I would say. His character lacks any depth and you wonder why Indian men are always so juvenile in our movies. First, we had Ranbir doing it in ADHM and now Dharam acts like a stupid kid. He dances well, looks great and does his typical cute act but gets zero room to show the emotional depth he is so capable of. Vani Kapoor is great as Shyra. She is fit, dances like a dream and also manages to look smarter and more sorted than Dharam, to the point that you wonder what she is doing with someone like him. I thought she looked a bit manly in her photos but her overall personality wins you over. I hope to see much more of her in the future.

 Befikre is a shallow, glossy movie that offers you no emotional satisfaction. Aditya Chopra doesn’t seem to have had his heart in it somehow. The highlight of the movie for me was the fantastic dance between Ranveer and VaniI can’t say too much about a movie where the high point is a dance sequence. Befikre is like a bubbly Cola; drink it, let the bubbles dance on your tongue momentarily and then forget it.
