I understand the fact that movie making is a part of the business irrespective of what the content is and who the main protagonists are.
But as of now, I have not been able to understand the fact that why these lesser known movies are pitted against the biggies on the same.
By doing so, either the producers of such movies intend to show up their daring attitude that they do not fear their movies being white washed even without a trace or they lack those grey cells in their brains.
Whatever be the reasons, it is the movies that ultimately suffers and off course its business, the very reason for its creation.
We are talking here about the mentioned thing because one more such movie has released named as Benny & Babloo starring the likes of Kay Kay and Rajpal Yadav alongside the other huge releases of the week, Anjaana Anjaani, Robot and Khichdi- The Movie, respectively.
With such opposition from big players, despite of boasting of a decent performance, the movie is destined to tank at the box-office without any notices.
Final Word? Benny & Babloo may not be path breaking or innovative film that can set the box-office ablaze but it works in part and appeals too. However, its wrong release time would make sure that it does not earn much pennies to carry itself home safely! Sorry!
Let' s see what is the basic story of this ill times flick in the words of Mr. Taran Adarsh.
"The story is about two good-hearted Samaritans Benny (Kay Kay Menon) and Babloo (Rajpal Yadav), who, like the any other Indian, are smitten by the glamour of Mumbai. After a brief stint as waiters in a typical Mumbai-style Irani restaurant, the two land up in distinctly different jobs. Benny takes up the job of a bell-boy in a suburban five-star hotel, whereas Babloo lands up as a waiter in a ladies bar."
"Benny considers his job to be far superior to Babloo' s and ends up making fun of him more often that not. Both gradually realize that they were actually in similar professions with two different exteriors, but the same interiors. Benny witnesses innumerable social evils at the five-star hotel, right from drug abuse to political fiascos, while Babloo meets the more human side of the otherwise condemned part of the society."
Looks like an okay plot? Folks? Yeah?
But again the wrong release timings make it as a sheen less product.
Yunus Sajawal as the first time director captures the light moments comfortably and looks more convinced behind the scenes. A decent effort, indeed!
Talking of the performances, Kay Kay as usual is in good form depicting his role naturally with utmost ease.
Rajpal Yadav delivers a performance that' s natural to the core. Rukhsar is effective. Riya Sen leaves a good mark. Anant Jog looks convincing.
Shweta Tiwari does not get much scope. Its heartening to see this talented actress of Kasauti Zindagi Kay fame to be playing with her career with these kind of movies having no scope at all for her. Let' s hope a better sense shall prevail to her at the end, soon.
On the whole, Benny & Babloo is a decent effort gone hurriedly wrong mainly due to its wrong release timing. Give it a miss!
From the box-office point of view, the movie shall emerge out as non-starter as viewers are being allured by Robot and others opting for Anjaana Anjaani. The producers and distributors of the film is set to burn their hands. Thumbs Down!
Rating: *1/2 (Below Average)
Verdict: Avoid this one & stay focused to your other commitments for the week!
