SYNOPSIS
Babu finds his reputation of being the number one contract killer at risk when Banke comes into play. Both of them receive the contracts to kill the same three people, which is when the two decide to play a game; whoever kills more, is the undisputed number 1. However, unbeknownst to them, another game is being played and Babu needs to ensure that he is neither the target nor a pawn.

Verdict: This hitman's revenge saga hits the bullseye. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is known for taking his characters to another level with his quintessential desi swag and excellent acting skills. In Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, you will see a hitman who will kill to keep you entertained throughout the movie. This is the story of a contract killer Babu []... ...Read full review
Be warned, this one belongs to the Gangs of Wasseypur genre where everyone is trigger-happy. Babu has been killing since the age of 10 when he first went hungry; Banke who admires Babu has always dreamt of being a professional killer. ...Read full review
Two professional assassins are drinking on a bridge over railway tracks, sharing their life stories and reminiscing how they entered into the business of killing people. One of them considers the other his teacher. The junior has so much admiration for the senior that he has renamed himself Banke Bihari (Jatin Goswami) out of respect for his guru, Babu Bihari (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). ...Read full review
Love and lust in the hinterlands of UP: weve seen this cocktail of violence and intrigue before in Vishal Bharadwaj and Anurag Kashyaps dark dramas. This latest iteration is peppered with interesting characters and moments, except you can never shake off the feeling of the film being atmospheric but much too familiar. ...Read full review
A major issue with a film without any moral compass/centre whatsoever is that its unlikely to generate much empathy among its audiences, whether for the situations on screen, or the characters concerned. Anybody can be shot at, and die, or not; and since all of them are bad guys anyway, who cares? That`s a bummer. ...Read full review
As capricious as its unfounded title, Kushan Nandy`s rough-hewn hinterland noir Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is a roaring mess. It misfires on most counts. So, what was all the kerfuffle for? While this Babumoshai obviously has no affinity with Dr. Bhaskar Banerjee, the thriller, no matter how hard it pushes itself, is merely a country cousin of Bollywood`s gangster sagas. ...Read full review
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz was in the news for having explicit content. Touted as one of the most intense dramas of the year, the film is nothing but a haywire affair of politics and a love triangle. With 48 cuts asked by CBFC, this A-certified film is directed by Kushan Nandy, who directed 88 Antop Hill in 2003, a box office disaster, followed by Hum Dum which also went unnoticed. He is back with BB where Nawaz plays the titular role of a contract killer ...Read full review
The film`s opening credits roll along with visuals which speedily establish the life and times of the lead, a contractual assasin. When he bumps into someone while casually strolling out of an office following a job, he assures the petrified onlooker, "Itna kyun dar rahe ho, ek ko hi marne ke paise milein hain." Then, we follow him to his modest hutment, where he stirs into a pot of chicken curry and once fed, goes on to fulfill his carnal desires. But following this snappy introduction, the film goes into a slump. ...Read full review
Its a pity Bollywood doesnt seem to know what to do with Nawazuddin Siddiqui anymore. Hes a terrific actor, ever willing to take bold risks, but lately hes been made to do the same thing over and over again. Just how many variations of the smart-talking, trigger-happy criminal does he have to play before he starts to sleepwalk through such roles? ...Read full review
Cleavage, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, cussing, guns, murder, sex, cleavage, cussing, sex, Nawaz- repeat, end. That is Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, a movie which is a result of its entire team stripping themselves completely naked in every aspect of filmmaking, just to earn a profit. At the risk of being trolled I actually agree with the CBFC`s decision to chop this film mercilessly, yes, the so called `sanskari` Pahlaj Nihalani was right, in this particular case. ...Read full review
On the face of it, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is a good old comic crime thriller with more plot twists than the hairpin bends on a mountain road. Look closer though, and you will see the underlying tragedy in the tale of Babu Bihari, a hitman who acquires a protg and gets played even as he thinks he holds all the cards. ...Read full review
Have you heard of Kushan Nandy? Have you heard of Ghalib Asad Bhopali? Have you heard of Nawazuddin Siddiqui? The film`s director (yes, Nandy) and story-/scriptwriter (Ghalib) may not have much to lose from making Babumoshai Bandookbaaz but given the audience`s huge expectations from Nawazuddin, he`s probably going to get a walloping from his fans. ...Read full review
Any film with a generous doze of gun slinging, dollops of sex, punchy dialogue, loads of profanity and a screenplay with twists and turns should be a sure shot winner. While Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has all of that and some memorable music too, this hitman`s saga turns turtle thanks to its lackluster execution. Despite Nawazuddin Siddiqui`s superlative performance, this one just doesnt rise above its low-budget feel. ...Read full review
Somewhere inside Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is a dark, deliciously twisty tale about two hitmen and a sultry cobbler. Yes, you heard that right. The fiery Bidita Bag plays a woman who fixes shoes at a roadside shop. Her damp pallu droops just enough to reveal her svelte body but she uses the sharp tools of her trade to keep male predators at bay of which there are many because we are in the badlands of Uttar Pradesh. ...Read full review
