Movie Review: Bajatey Raho (2013)
When all hell has broken loose and it’s only the crooks left to rule the roost, it is time for the good to start its fight over evil. But is that enough?? In India’s first ever revenge comedy; you shall witness the fight of CON v/s EVIL to retain one’s honour, integrity and prestige.
Sabbarwahl (Ravi Kishan) is on a roll committing a series of frauds, all in the garb of a successful business entrepreneur. But little does he know that one of his misdoings has created a huge impact on the lives of 4 poor sods: Mrs. Baweja (Dolly Ahluwalia), Sukhi (Tusshar Kapoor), Mintoo Hasan (Vinay Pathak) and Ballu (Ranvir Shorey) which has only resulted into an enormous wave of need for vengeance.
The death of Mr. Baweja due to a cardiac arrest after being framed in a bank fraud and Saira his assistant being put behind bars, Mrs. Baweja takes the situation in her hands. The poor sods decide to no longer remain victims to the situation by living on scrawny jobs and meagre monies but instead BAJAO Sabbarwahl’s band in the best way possible. It’s the good hearted underdog who has to become a ‘little BAD’ to fight the ‘very BAD’.
‘To dethrone the king is no mean task.’
But a lot needs to happen before that: Sukhi finds love in Manpreet (Vishakha Singh) who has to get Sabbarwahl to twirl to her tunes; Mintoo’s ‘Modern Catering’ has to offer more than just ‘Quantity and Quality’ and Ballu’s cunning ways need to go through the litmus test.
A series of cons, enthralling, amusing and needless to say entertaining to the core. Coz at the end of it all Happy Ending it is… but all you will want to say is ‘Bajatey Raho’!!!
BAJAO does everything, but beat around the bush, and blow the wrong hornet.
