Besharam Movie Review: It's Ranbir's Show All The Way!

It is often seen that a Bollywood movie, without a Khan, doesn't really manage to pull the Indian crowd to the theatres. But, here's one actor, who doesn't require any 'superstar' tag, instead he has honestly proven himself to be a talent tornado! And yes, the Indian moviebuffs love him and his naughty antics. It's Ranbir Kapoor! And this time, he plays the magical Besharam in filmmaker Abhinav Kashyap's latest release, that also sees Pallavi Sharda, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor play pivotal role in the film.

The one thing you can't overlook noticing in the movie Besharam is Ranbir Kapoor, who makes a few scenes bearable either with his performance or simply by his sheer presence, otherwise, this one lacks an intriguing and well-crafted script.


The story of Besharam revolves around Babli (Ranbir Kapoor), a flamboyant con man, who is shameless in his acts; fears nothing and regrets less. He has no sense of right or wrong till he unwittingly hurts the love of his life, Tara ( Pallavi Sharda ). By the time Babli realises his wrong deeds, he gets chased by two cops Chulbul Chautala (Rishi Kapoor) and Bulbul Chautala (Neetu Kapoor). What happens next in Babli's life? Does he ever gets a chance to deal a better, honest life?

Besharam is tolerable until you attempt to make sense through a nearly derived storyline and then, the film falls flat. Plot wise, Besharam is cold and unconvincing, but the random onscreen activities by the starcast will leave the theatre in splits. But, unfortunately, even the Kapoors fail to breathe air into certain horrific, dead scenes.


Ranbir Kapoor yet again delivers a spirited performance, showcasing his flair for comedy and grace in dancing. He's one actor, who can make you laugh and cry at the same time. Forget his elite filmy background, Ranbir has proven himself as an artist par excellence.

Pallavi Sharda is average, but her dancing skill is worthwhile. Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor make a cute pair, with their fascinating chemistry. But unfortunately, Javed Jaffery as the baddie in the flick fails to make his mark.


On the whole, if at all Besharam manages to shine at the Box Office, it will be only due to the Ranbir Kapoor factor. Besharam suffers due to a senseless, poor plot, but one certainly cannot blame the lead artists for it. Unfortunately, Besharam is no Dabangg for Abhinav Kashyap.
