After his superhit Yeh jawani hai diwani, the audience was really looking forward to Ranbir Kapoor in Besharam. This second directorial venture of Abhinav Singh Kashyap however fails to bring the zing which marked his earlier film. The audience expected aDabangg like movie. Perhaps even Ranbir tried out this part in order to get a foothold into a genre where Salman Khan Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan has done so well in the past. However, the greatest weakness of the film lies in a plot which is almost nonexistent. In most places, it makes little sense and there are huge gaps in logic which the film just cannot bridge.
The story revolves around Bubli – the unapologetic and unashamed Ranbir Kapoor who is happy go lucky and makes his living by stealing cars. There is a nod to Mr India where it is seen that Ranbir uses his ill gotten gains to support an orphanage where he grew up in, but this information fails to add any noticeable layers to his character. He falls head over heel in love with Tara Sharma – played by the newcomer Pallavi Sharda – who is a spoilt daughter of a middle class widow. She does not respond, but Ranbir ends up stealing her car by mistake. Now, he swears to steal back the car from Bhim Singh Chaandel – played by Javed Jaffrey – who is the Hawla king of Punjab. In the meantime, the married cop couple of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh are hot on the trail of the car thief.
The story is uninspiring and has too many gaps to count. The songs are too many and the fight sequences are unnecessarily long. The film does not quite manage to be a good action comedy also. The best part is definitely the casting coupe where Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh and Ranbir appear together. The senior couple has delivered their parts well. Neetu especially plays the role of shrewish wife to perfection. However, the chemistry between the leading couple is extremely lukewarm.
In the midst of all this, the unapologetic acting of Ranbir Kapoor is the only thing that makes you watch the film to the end. A number of spoofs of old films and heroes are delivered well in the film. The climax is rather improbable but you will definitely enjoy the references to the Hindi films of the past. Overall, Besharam is not one of Ranbir Kapoor’s success stories.
