The Pros And Cons Of Bewakoofiyaan
Bewakoofiyaan is the story of a guy and a girl who are very much in love and want to get married. But, the conversion of relationship to marriage is never that easy in filmy life. The isle Sonam’s character Mayera so desperately wants to walk down, has a lot of thorns. Namely - her father (Rishi Kapoor) and the fact that her boyfriend just lost his job. So, the BF (Ayushmann) has to lie his way into Rishi Kapoor’s good books.
When YRF first dropped the trailer of Bewakoofiyaan, we made the assumption that it’s going to be a disappointing romantic comedy. We were right. Kind of.
Here are all the pros and cons of Ayushmann and Sonam’s Bewakoofiyaan!
Con – Sonam ki awaaz
Sonam Kapoor can act if she tries. If only she had tried here. She basically plays Aisha with a brain. That’s an assumption we made on the following fact – she works for a bank where she makes over 70K a month and she wears specs! Her chirpiness is more irritating than it is endearing. Guys can take consolation in the fact that she looks hot.
Pro - Rishi Kapoor ka andaaz
Rishi Kapoor >> everything else this film has to offer. He’s the sole reason why this film went from being bad to mediocre. His comic timing is impeccable but, to tell you truth, watching him play video games and going “dhish dhish dhish” was so entertaining! Rishi Kapoor should certainly do more comedies!
Con – Ayushmann, why are you so repetitive?
Ayushmann is repetitive. Not just in the type of roles he’s picking. There’s a line in the film – “Hot lag rahi hai, kha jaaon tujhko”. And he repeats this line so often ki by God, we were wishing koi aake use kha jaye!
Pro - Chemistry
We’re not talking about the bikini shikini and kissing shissing between Sonam-Ayushmann. We’re talking about the hilarious exchanges between Ayushmann and Rishi Kapoor. “Duffer, khoteya and bewakoof” were just a few insults Rishi Kapoor threw his way. This is what made the first of the film light and fun. The drama filled second half just killed all the fun we had in the beginning of the movie!
Con -Khamakhaan ke songs
The songs were terrible. What’s worse is that Raghu Dixit was the music director behind them! Khamakhaan was probably the only song that is border line ok.
Pro – Gurgaon!
The film is set in the Millennium city, Gurgaon! This change of scenery itself is a breath of fresh air. More filmmakers should step out of their studios in Mumbai and give this city a chance.
So keeping all the positives and negatives in mind, in our humble opinion, Bewakoofiyaan is an ok-ok film. Watch it if you’re getting really bored this weekend. Rishi Kapoor will give you your tickets worth!
