STARCAST: RANVEER SINGH, VAANI KAPOOR
DIRECTOR: ADITYA CHOPRA
“Relationships are built on different foundations and under different circumstances, but the ones that are built on mistakes lasts long.” The same concept has been applied to the recently released rom-com Befikre.
The Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor starrer Befikre, has been directed by Aditya Chopra, and is his fourth directorial venture, after Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Rab Ney Bana Di Jodi and Mohabbatein. With the hype that had been built around Befikre, it was definitely one of the most awaited films of the year.
And as expected, Aditya Chopra has left no stones unturned to prove that despite of the extent of the West’s influence on our youth, they still believe in the institution of marriage. With this film, Chopra seems to have surpassed the existing high standards which have been set by his other directorial ventures in the past. Sadly, the plot of the film has not been given a new direction or any new dimensions.
Befikre is about an energetic yet struggling soul named Dharam, played by Ranveer Singh, who ends up in Paris, in search of better and brighter opportunities to further his sinking career as a comic.
In his tryst with the magical city of Paris, he stumbles upon a free-spirited girl named Shyra, played by Vaani
Kapoor, who, after kissing one too many frogs, is able to find her price charming in Dharam.
Ranveer Singh as always fully justifies the character of Dharam. His energy, charm and perfection compel the audience to adore Singh even more. It is Singh’s performance which holds the film together.
New comer Vani Kapoor delivers a promising performance overall. That said, there are moments when she fails to connect with the audience.
Watch the film for Ranveer Singh’s exceptional performance, some foot tapping numbers composed by Vishal-Shekhar, and the beautiful city of Paris
