Befikre quick take: Peppy tunes, stunning Paris and a love saga
Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor romance in the scenic beauty of Paris in Aditya Chopra’s Befikre that hits theatres December 9.Updated: Dec 09, 2016 13:18 IST
Ranveer Singh has an unconventional image that doesn’t abide by the rules of suave Bollywood. His boundless energy and no filter attitude have won more than a few fans for him. Like Arjun Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Parineeti Chopra, he too was launched under the Yash Raj banner, but he seems to be getting ahead in the race now.
Technically an outsider in the Hindi film industry, Ranveer Singh has already carved a niche for himself, and interestingly, he is not typecast yet.
If Yash Raj Films found him suitable for Band Baaja Baraat and Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane cast him in Lootera, probably his most restrained performance yet. At the same time, Sanjay Leela Bhansali signed him for Bajirao Mastani, a very unlike Bollywood period drama.
Now, Aditya Chopra, one of the biggest producers in India, presents Singh as Dharam, a stand-up comedian from Delhi, who lands up in Paris in search of some fun.
A Delhi boy! Again!
Well, we won’t mind till he carries it well.
Dharam meets Shyra (Vaani Kapoor) and gets enamored by her carefree stance. In fact, he thinks he has got an equal match in Shyra. Then and there begins a whirlwind ‘affair’.
Affair, because they live in-the-moment, unlike the concept of soulmates Bollywood has been feeding us since forever.
Now when they are out there for some ‘no strings attached’ moments, expect a lot of songs and steamy moments. That’s also been seen as the unique selling point of the film: a lot of kissing and intimate scenes.
Peppy tunes and stunning Paris offer enough incentives to sit back, relax and enjoy the latest love-saga from the Chopras. But the fear of being another rehashed, run of the mill story still looms large. Can Befikre rise above the average? Stay tuned for the complete review.
