Let me confess first. I saw this movie last night. I really saw this movie last night. I just woke up about half an hour ago and I knew the first thing I had to do was write a review for Yash Raj’s latest flick Badmaash Company. None of us three die hard Bollywood fans knew it was a Parmeet Sethi flick. The actor turned writer-director dude is the brain behind Badmaash Company. The film stars Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Meiyang Chang and Vir Das.
In a word Badmaash Company is a con job. Okay that was two. If you’re setting out to watch a movie to make this a perfect pre-weekend-dinner thing then I’ll advise you against it. Badmaash Company is a strict no-no. It belongs to the genre of Bollywood cinema that cannot be explained in words. The experience will leave you flabbergasted.
Shahid Kapoor has been wasted, Anushka just wanted to hop into some nice clothes to take off that sundar-sushil-ladki image she portrayed in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Vir Das and Chang need not be mentioned. The soundtrack is worth a shot though. My two partners were of a different opinion however I did like one or two tracks.
Parmeet Sethi needs a MRI scan. Yash Raj Films’ need to rethink their strategy for choosing writers and directors. Some of their past few films have been disasters. Not from the box office point of view but dude, where is the creativity?
Don’t even ask me to rate this movie. Period.
