The film is a wannabe romantic comedy that’s in your face and laced with mediocrity. A copy the of the Korean film Couples, this one really puts the original to shame.
Badmashiyaan is about a con woman Nari (Suzanna Mukherjee) who charms a love struck cafe owner Dev Aroro (Sidhanth Gupta) and ditches him after he buys her a palatial home worth 2 crores.
A jilted Dev hires a local detective Pinkesh (Karan Mehra), who apparently is his friend, to track his Nari down.
Now Pinkesh gets equally unlucky as he meets Palak Mehra (Gunjan Malhotra) during a bank robbery. As the story progresses, Pinkesh discovers that Nari is all set to dupe a don, Jassi Chaudhary (Sharib Hashmi).
What follows is confusion and confusion and we finally reach the climax of the film. Well that’s the best part of the film. Wow!!
The film is set in Chandigarh, but you hardly get to see the city as all you see is coffee shops, restaurants and houses.
Badmashiyaan had a good plot but the screenplay, if one can call it a screenplay, is juvenile and it seems that scenes are written just to fill in space. Logics and reasoning are just words, cause this one just has none.
To add this this, the editing is so choppy that it seems like a kid actually sat on the edit table and just chopped the film as he or she though it was a game to be played.
The one thing that holds you in the film is Sharib Hashmi’s performance and nothing else as all the others are just sleepwalking their parts.
It’s best not to see this one, as you will end up cursing yourself for actually going in to see this film because the makes I guess think that they have done a great job with Badmashiyaan.
Badmashiyaan is a never ending saga that makes you yawn, makes you sleep and finally angry as to why did you enter this torture cell. The film is a...0.5
