Movie Review: Bewakoofiyaan (2014)
Bewakoofiyaan can be described as a “slice of life” movie, which is set during the time of recession. Mohit (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a marketing whiz kid vying for a step up the career ladder. Mayera (Sonam Kapoor) is a financial brain with a penchant for shoes.
They are a young middle class corporate couple who are ambitious and desires to spend a good life. They both work hard to achieve their goals and enjoys their life too.
They are passionately in love with each other and beleives that they can live on love and fresh air. However, the main obstacle in their love story is an obstinate old man Mayera’s father V. K. Sehgal, who believes that only a rich man can bring Mayera happiness. And a mid-level executive like Mohit simply isn’t good enough for her daughter.
Exactly how fragile are relationships in these times where consumer lifestyles dictate their very nature and intensity? Who gets the last laugh when recession strikes and the lack of money tests love, credit-card-junkies private-sector Mohit-Mayera; or safe-playing sarkari, V.K. Sehgal?
