Cast: Ranveer Singh, Vaani Kapoor
Directed By: Aditya Chopra
Produced By: Aditya Chopra
We have seen plenty of romantic love stories, some that depicted the emotion of love strongly and some that dealt with commitment issues. So, when we saw Aditya Chopra’s ‘Befikre‘ trailer, the first impression on our mind was that this one too would be a typical passionate romance saga where two youngsters with commitment issues meet and there is a lot of kissing and intimacy flowing in. But, the movie turned out to be surprisingly a bit different. There’s much more than what’s shown in the trailer and songs of the film.
The story revolves around a young stand-up comedian Dharam (Ranveer Singh) who flies to Paris to join his friend’s business venture and Shyra (Vaani Kapoor) who is a professional tour guide born in Paris, France to Indian parents. The two free-spirited souls eventually hook up together and their passionate romance begins. They end up falling in love, but their love story isn’t a happy one and they eventually breakup. Shyra is emotionally broken while Dharam talks about his heartbreak at his ‘Comedy Nights’. Enter Anay (Armaan Rilhan), a dapper good-looking guy and the rest is for you to see.
Talking of performances, Ranveer Singh is commendable in his portrayal of Dharam and the one film old actress Vaani Kapoor is also quite good. She did face a lot of flak for her thin frame and rumoured facial surgery, but performance wise she has definitely improved from her debut movie. Actor Armaan Ralhan has also held his own and he is not overshadowed by the sparkling presence of the male lead, Ranveer Singh.
From the technical point of view, the cinematography of the movie by Kaname Onoyama and production design by Kaname Onoyama is amazing. The witty dialogues penned by Aditya Chopra and co-writer Sharad Katariya are nice. The music by Vishal Shekhar which is already a chartbuster is situational and we love it.
The only drawback for the film is its predictable story-line with YRF’s touches added in. Overall, this movie could easily make for a one-time watch for the weekend, especially for Ranveer Singh.
