Bach ke rehna from "Bachna Ae Haseeno"!


Ah another unremarkable one from Yash Raj Films, went to watch “Bachna Ae Haseeno” last weekend with high expectations but alas L! I wonder what has happened to the powerhouse of Bollywood and why are they making such mediocre movies one after another! Think of yesteryears, people used to wait for Yashji’s films and YRF banner meant sure shot success and now??? YRF is giving movies like Tashan, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom & Bachna Ae Haseeno!

Bachna Ae Haseeno is a story of Raj and three women – Mahi, Radhika & Gayatri whom he meets at different stages of his life. Well, I won’t write the detail story of the movie in the interest of those who still want to watch this movie, but in a nutshell Raj is a modern guy who wants to just CHILL out with different girls and doesn’t believe in commitments at all, the movie shows his life for 12 years in which he breaks the heart of two women who are madly in love with him and with the third one he himself falls in deep love. Then begins his journey of maafinamas and after a draggggging never ending second half the film finally comes to a typical bolywoodish “& they lived happily ever after” end. First half was still ok but second half was so unbearable esp. because of those 70s kinda dialogues! Ranbir Kapoor was looking good and Bipasha was looking truly hot. Minissha Lamba looked very auntyish and the leading lady Deepika Padukone had hardly anything to perform. Her role was a little more than what we call “guest appearance”. What was more upsetting was wastage of a talent like Kunal Kapoor. Such a fine actor has been grossly wasted in the movie. Music was ok but the title number was definitely very good. Length of the movie was toooooo long and plot was not at all justified for those three hours. Overall despite having such good actors the movie was very weak because of script, dialogues and execution.

From my side, it’s a “thumbs down” for this movie. You can watch it if you want to see how Ranbir and Deepika are performing in their respective second movies but otherwise it’s totally avoidable. Well one thing is definitely noteworthy, despite it being a very boring movie both Ranbir and Deepika look promising enough as the next super stars of bollywood. They have proved it that they are not one-movie-hypes and are going to stay in times to come.
