Befikre: Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor’s Film Fail To Portray Love!

We begin with a forewarning as the trailers already hinted that the film Befikre is not to be expected anything on the lines of DDLJ and Rab Me Bana Di Jodi.If you are ignorant about that; you are obvious to get shocked. Director Aditya Chopra just changed lanes and he is moving rapidly with this romcom starring one of the best actors in Bollywood, Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, who finally got her second Hindi movie after Shuddh Desi Romance. Let’s make way to the review…

What’s it about

Befikre starts with a break up of Dharam (Ranveer Singh) and Shyra (Vaani Kapoor). An year ago, Dharam, a stand-up comedian from Delhi and a workaholic, visits Paris to work in his friend’s club. While trying to enjoy flings with random girls at a club, he meets Shyra, a French girl born to Indian parents. They hooked up after a song, and start a series of French kissing, make out sessions and bold steps, on which their relationship is built.

But within a year, their patience gives way with their relationship and those heads for a break up. Now they are separated and find it easy to move on yet remained good friends.

Owing to a dialogue in a Yash Raj film itself, can a boy and girl stay friends when they have their torrid past? That’s what Befikre is all to say.

What’s hot

Those who are habituated to watching sweet romantic movies by the Yash Raj; they might not appreciate this film, but I’m okay with it as Adi tried changing his tracks and make a romcom with modern sensibilities. Befikre must be Aditya Chopra’s breeziest movie ever. The film is replete with light moments, mostly in the first half, and has a tone of a typical Hollywood romcom. Vaani struggles to match up with Ranveer Singh’s energy in the beginning, but as the movie march forward, her performance gains confidence. She scored more in the dramatic portions, and her French and dancing are FAB!

Watch out Bekfire for Vaani’s moves and her sexual chemistry with Ranveer in the dance-off scene. The cinematography captures the essence on romance of Paris, while the background score matches the tone.

What’s not good!

While Aditya Chopra wanted to make a different movie, I believe that he didn’t know how to give Dharam and Shyra’s friendship a proper direction. The film, in the second half falls into the usual trap of clichés, filled with secondary lovers, a ‘healthy’ BFF and getting in touch with ‘Indian’ values at the price of your true love.

After a fast first half that’s so different from the usual Hindi movies, we expected Aditya Chopra to take a path less travelled in the second half. Instead, these portions appear like potpourri of ideas taken from movies like Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Love Aaj Kal and even their own brand movies, Band Baaja Baaraat and Shuddh Desi Romance.

The climax resembles to that of Dustin Hoffman classic, The Graduate, with a pinch of Housefull. If the narrative had been more original, the movie would have deserved more good points.

What to do

Befikre has its flaws, yet deserves your time owing to a breezy narrative and amazing performances by Ranveer and Vaani. If you expect something the movie to be like DDLJ and you will be disappointed. But if you want to go and watch something new and fresh; Bekfire is a movie for you.

Thus we conclude with Bekfire Review!
