Befikre Review

Aditya Chopra's latest outing is very unlike his previous flicks. The man whose stable is known for giving us chiffon-clad heroines, snow-clad romance and feeding us the concept of perfect soulmates and 'janam-janam ka saath', this time tries to catch the pulse of the young heartbeats of Gen-X with his take on modern-day relationships.

Befikre is his boldest film till date in terms of visualization and one must mention here that the Censor Board too has come a long way when it comes to depiction of romance on the silver screen. This time, there is no chop-chop when it comes to kissing and making out scenes. (Cheers, to that!). Adi has dared to venture out of his comfort zone and succeeds in it to some extent.

Ranveer Singh is a total sparkler and keeps you glued to the screen! His goofiness and charming ways leave you floored and you just can't help yourself from going 'aww.' He saves the ship from sinking when the writing takes a backseat. His character in the film has its own set of flaws but Ranveer lets go of all his inhibitions when it comes to portraying it on-screen and that's what makes you fall in love with his Dharam,

Vaani Kapoor stumbles a bit when it comes to matching up to her co-star's energy but still puts up an impressive act (barring a couple of accent slip-offs here and there).

To put it in words, watching Befikre is like bungee-jumping. It's best enjoyed only if you get soaked in its carefreeness without worrying for a safe (flawless) ride!

Love is like bungee jumping, it comes with no guarantee that you will have a smooth landing, declares Dharam (Ranveer Singh) from the romantic comedy Befikre.
He’s got the girl of his dreams, Shyra, played confidently by Vaani Kapoor and he has now taken a leap of faith with her by jumping off a cliff with her. By the way, he doesn’t know how to swim.

For many, that’s plain stupidity but for some others it’s Dharam’s grand, romantic gesture. Dharam’s philosophy could be extended to Aditya Chopra’s romance Befikre. Just like the adventure sport like bunjee jumping, it’s a rocky ride. There are some great moments, but largely insipid ones.

Watch this film if you are fan of syrupy romances or Ranveer Singh’s groupie. Otherwise, jump into this at your own risk.
