Bewakoofiyan, filled with a lot of funny moments and good performances, is a rom-com you can go for. It doesn't have a major story to tell. Film works in a very thinner thread which used to exist from the beginning of time - a girl loves a boy who is not very qualified up to the standards expected from his father-in-law.
While father tries to ruin their relationship through his small cunning tricks, the relationship works fine but when he actually starts to like the guy whom his daughter loved, they are on the verge of a break up. Yes, It is the Indian adaptation of Hollywood comedy Meet The Parents. Here, Rishi Kapoor dons the role which is made unforgettable by De Niro.
The surprising thing about this film is that it is not a scene to scene lift of Meet The Parents, but writer Habib Fasal has delivered a fresh screenplay with a complete Indian urban feel. There are no big incidents or plot twists in this slickly made film but it just moves along in a very lighter plane. There is nothing in this flick that you haven't seen before. But movie looks fresh with the stunning chemistry between Sonam Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana and Rishi Kapoor's mesmerising performance. Rishi can transform himself to any role without much effort.
The much publicized Bikini act of Sonam Kapoor stays in the film just for three seconds but those three seconds were enough to make an appeal in the audience. Sonam flaunts her beautiful body, leaving male audience in the theatre drooling all over her. Ayushmaan Khurrana and Sonam Kapoor make the best young pair in present Bollywood. Their onscreen chemistry is perfect and most realistic.
Director Nupur Ashtana has a brilliant visual sense, especially her cutting pattern for this film was fantastic. Bewakoofiyan is a pure blend of slick cinematography and beautiful editing. The locations chosen adds more richness to its frames and film maker has carefully designed each frame of it to reflect the colourful world the characters live in. The fashion consultants of this flick also should get an applause for their wonderful, awe inspiring work.
One of the comments from audience after watching the film was - ‘It doesn't have anything in it. But feels good'. This would be the exact observation about Bewakoofiyan which is there to entertain you for some hours.
