After Dolly Ki Doli comes another heroine, vivaciously conning her way through a throng of men who fall for her angelic good looks and false commitments! Naari (Suzanna Mukherjee), is a money minded, highly materialistic young woman who is not interested in being tied down to relationships or marriage. Naari is over-poweringly seductive and surprisingly cold hearted, who makes men fall hopelessly in love with her.
The plot revolves around her escapades with three men, the first is the decent coffee-shop owner Dev Arora (Sidhant Gupta) who gives in to Naari’s charms only to be dumped by her when she deems right. The second is a small time detective named Pinkesh (Karan Mehra). It is the third affair wherein the plot of the film thickens as Naari attempts to con the dreaded don Jazzy (Sharib Hashmi). Last seen in Filmistaan, Hashmi plays a Haryanvi Don and is a delight to watch! Palak Mehra (Gunjan Malhotra) plays a sweet young woman battling her own past, drenched in her ideas of a fairytale romance. Her angle in the film is for you to watch!
The film is interestingly written without an iota of clichéd humor, or vulgarity. The three love stories are woven together by a great script and an incredibly unpredictable plot. The humour is clean, the actors are earnest and Ankit Tiwari has cast a magic spell with his music. In what may seem like a bad start, the film opens to sequences which look like they are haphazardly put together. Director Amit Khanna however, pulls it together and the story unfolds into a dashing debut! Light as a soap bubble, Badmashiyan is a comedy of errors which turns out to be quite a wholesome entertainer!
Why should you watch the film?
Badmashiyan is quite an unexpected prize. A film with a strong plot bound together by stunning performances, great music and a tight screenplay. This film deserves its moment to shine and is quite a change from the severely predictable rom-coms!
