What’s Good: Befikre makes up for a bright watch. A rom-com that is flawed but keeps you entertained.
What’s Bad : Befikre is a typical rom-com that is meant for people who love the usual romance that mostly defies logic.
Storyline : Dharam (Ranveer Singh), who is a stand-up comedian at a club in Paris. On his first tour in Paris, he meets Shyra (Vaani Kapoor), her electrical energy and carefree nature, draws Dharam towards her and within no time the two hit it off. What starts as a ‘I dare you’ romance, after a year old relationship that becomes an emotional baggage. The two part ways, only to meet again and this time, try their hands at being “just friends”.
While the friendship is only getting them closer again, Shyra meets Anay, an equally crazy yet sorted investment banker. He falls in love with Shyra and she is left with the decision of marrying him. On other hand , Dharam too is involved with someone else in a non-serious relationship. Not liking Anay’s proximity towards Shyra, will Dharam realize his feelings? Are Shyra and Dharam over each other to move on with their respective marriages is what is left to see.
Star Performance : Ranveer Singh is an actor who manages to overshadow everybody else on the screen. He is perfect as the irritatingly childish and shallow Delhi desperado. In terms of performance, his opening scene is very poor but later he manages to keep you entertained with his shiftless acts and promises a laughter ride.
Vaani Kapoor tries hard to impress us with her performance. Unfortunately, it is her recently ‘fixed’ face and her average dialogue delivery put you off but her dance moves are appreciable.
Music : Befikre’s music is foot tapping and hence enjoyable at all occasions. All songs has directed by Vishal & Shekhar
Direction: Aditya Chopra is known for his over the top romances. With Befikre‘s trailer, he gave everyone a feeling that we may have something new in stuff. While the first half seems like a Hollywood movie inspiration, same is nor the case when it comes to the second half. Post interval, he gets into the usual YRF mode. The setting of Paris is a smart choice and the production design and cinematography are praiseworthy.
With a run time of 2 hour & 30 minutes, the film seems stretched mainly in the second half and could have been cut down especially, the foolish wedding sequence towards the end.
Final Word : Befikre is an entertaining movie, go and enjoy!!
