Babumoshai Bandookbaaz Movie Review:


Ratings:3/5 Review By:Meena Iyer Site: TimesofIndia

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. If you have feasted on cinema noir, this one serves up no surprises. The screenplay could have definitely been tighter. Yet Kushan Nandy gives you a film that you find yourself compulsively watching.

This is poor man’s Gangs Of Wasseypur & I would rather prefer watching a new episode of crime shows on television rather than investing my time on such film. Kushan Nandy drags the film on a one-line plot and fails to maintain the grip from the word go. Yes, it has some high moments but not enough to make the film close to like able. As Alfred Hitchcock once said, “There are three things needed to make a good film, script, script and script” Unfortunately, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz doesn’t has any one of them.

Love and lust in the hinterlands of UP: we’ve seen this cocktail of violence and intrigue before in Vishal Bharadwaj and Anurag Kashyap’s 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.

The director makes vain efforts to weave a string of narratives and subplots into a meaningful and engaging whole. Instead, he haemorrhages the audience’s intelligence, and succeeds in killing the film. The film won’t be remembered for Nandy’s direction or Ghalib’s plot. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz will be remembered as Nawazuddin’s worst film yet.

As capricious as its unfounded title, Kushan Nandy’s rough-hewn hinterland noir Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is a roaring mess. It misfires on most counts.It whips up plenty of heat and dust and packs rustic romance, love, lust, betrayal, doses of black humour and a great deal of carnage into its tenuous two hours. The characters turn upon each other like hungry hounds baying for blood. Logic is torn to shreds in the bargain. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, in the end, is a tumble down see-saw that never heaves itself off the ground.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Rohit Site: Hindustan Times

But these moments can’t take away your attention from the shallowness of the entire facade. It’s a film pretending to be a stylishly raw gangster saga originated in the interiors of the Hindi heartland, but in reality, it’s nothing more than another attempt to look at the crime prone lower strata of society through a rose tinted glass. Sadly, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz never pierces our hearts.
