Superstar Ranbir Kapoor's latest release Besharam can be termed as a perfect example of the saying "All that glitters is not gold". After doing films like Rockstar and Barfi, the audience had a lot of expectation from Ranbir's Besharam. But, unfortunately, it turned out a be a big disappointment for most of the critics' as well as the audience, who even claims that Besharam is a major flop in Kapoor's Bollywood career so far.
Most of the renowned movie critics have given a thumbs down to Besharam, claiming that the film was a big disaster. Featuring Ranbir, Rishi, Neetu Kapoor and Pallavi Sharda in the leads, the movie Besharam revolves around the story of Babli (Ranbir Kapoor), a flamboyant con man, who is shameless in his acts; fears nothing and regrets less. Though Ranbir did his best the the flick, but the other factors in it turned out to be disastrous.
Besharam lacks an intriguing and well-crafted script. Weak plot, boring music and certain vulgar dialogues adds up to Besharam's list of spoilers. Many critics even feel that certain scenes in the movie goes beyond one's toleration and demands the viewers' patience. Go through the slider to check out what most of the movie critics have to say about Besharam:
Bollywood Hungama (One and half stars)
On the whole, this film proves the adage 'All that glitters is not gold' absolutely right. BESHARAM is a huge disappointment!
Koimoi (Two and half stars)
Besharam is plagued on multiple levels with lazy writing and shabby editing. It isn't lucid and hence the conveyed impact is heavily diluted.
Rediff (One and half stars)
Besharam is so unbelievably sloppy and senseless, not even the best actors in the business can redeem it no matter how hard they try.
Indian Express (One and half stars)
Even the talented Ranbir can't save this one, because the whole thing is so lame.
Zee News (Two and half stars)
Besharam, Ranbir Kapoor's latest release has a basic problem - it does not live up to its name.
NDTV (Two and half stars)
It has no story worth the name, and its oddball characters are facile caricatures that turn more and more bizarre as they hurtle towards a protracted and action-packed climax that turns out to be far and away the most enjoyable part of the film.
IBN Live (One stars)
Kashyap, who gave Salman Khan what was possibly his first fully realized character in years, fails to turn Babli into a similarly enduring - or endearing - hero for the screen.
DNA (Two and half stars)
Some scenes go on and on... beginning with the first scene when Babli and his friend are running away from the cops. Almost all the fight scenes are too long.
Mumbai Mirror (One and half stars)
Abhinav Singh Kashyap's nonchalant direction fails to deliver any highs.
Daily Bhaskar (Two and half stars)
Besharam which could have been a dream debut for debutant Pallavi Sharda, could turn out to be a nightmare.
