  • Not a Bad Bargain…. Discounting the Unknown Faces…

    Bhindi Bazaar Inc. rating: 5 out of 10(Divya Solgama wrote on 17 Jun 2011)

    Ram Gopal Varma marked a different style of gangster films in our Hindi cinema, a decade ago with ‘Satya’. After that we witnessed loads and loads of such film, made by directors who had full hangover of R.G.V, some impressed us, rest ended up as a disappointment including R.G.V himself. Director Ankush Bhatt comes up with a tale featuring one of the most crowded places in Mumbai – Bhindi Baazaar. Let’s find out if it has something different to offer or might be just the same old wine in a new bottle.

    “Bhindi Baazaar Inc.” is the story of two friends Fateh {Prashant Narayanan} & Tez {Gautam Sharma}, who pickpockets for the local area don Mamu {Pawan Malhotra}. Mamu had an old rivalry with another goon from different area, Pandey {Piyush Mishra} and both try to keep their cold enmity alive at every given point. One day Mamu is approached by a pharmaceutical company who wants him and his boys to spread a virus in the town, Mamu disagrees and this starts the planning and plotting against him, later followed over his boys and the other gang. What happens next is all the film about.

    Story has loads of shades from films like Ankush, Dharmatma, Allah Ke Bande, Satya and many more gangster films. Then there are some minute original plots in the film, but they don’t gel with the film at all. It’s the screenplay and way film has been presented, which makes it different and interesting. The movie has some superb scenes like Kids learning to Pickpocket, Fateh and Tez’s Pick pocketing style, The cop flirting with the Eunuch, Pandey firing his men’s, Mamu’s death chapter, Fateh and Tez’s talks, Flu Spreading scenes, Pandey-Fateh meet, Shabana’s Death, Tez’s showing his real colors followed by the twist in the climax. On the flip side the film turns monotones in the middle part, especially post interval. Also the repetitive scenes and Tez’s love track does not work for the film. But then as the movie moves towards the completion and you expect some predictable move, the director gives you a twist and makes you connected with the film, till the last scene. Editing is fine; some shots between K.K Menon and Gautam Sharma could have been avoided. Camera work is good and has captured some good locations of ‘Bhindi Baazaar’.

    Music is quite average with songs like O Pia, Kaat Ke and others. The only noticeable song is Akkad Bakkad which has inspiration from R.D.Burman and Kalyanji Anandji’s tunes.

    Director Ankush Bhatt tries hard to give us another Satya, but falls weak due to lack of story and his unknown lead character. Wish he would had used some known actor in place of Gautam Sharma, the film would had been much much better. Also the unnecessary love making scenes were not at all impressive. But thanks to his twist and turns in the plot, he manages to reach that level where the film should be definitely watched at least once for sure.

    Prashant Narayanan is a fine actor had we have seen some of his good performances in films like Chall, Waisa Bhi Hota Hai –Part 2 and more. Out here too he impresses us with his style despite of being monotones. Pawan Malhotra as Mamu delivers a good performance. Piyush Mishra, Dipti Naval, Shilpa Shukla and K.K Hardly have anything to deliver. Debutant Gautam Sharma in the lead role disappoints and fails to carry the film on his shoulders. Gopal Singh is fine. Jackie looked horrible.

    So bol meri ‘Filmi Khopdi’ is film mein kitna hai Dum?
    Dum hai, accha dum hai and thus keeps you interested in it with some nice twist and turns in the second half. But if you don’t love such types of films then this is not your cup of tea, same goes for the one who loves this genre and expect Satya Part 2. The film is not a bad bargain as it has some good thrilling moments, discounting the unknown faces.
