Upperstall Review



Bin Bulaye Baraati


Hindi, Comedy, 2011, Color

Durjan Singh (Gulshan Grover) is a dangerous dacoit of the Chambal area. He comes to the city with his 20 years' booty. He meets a don, Gajraj (Mukesh Tiwari), and his right hand man, Ranjeet (Hemant Pandey,) and tells them to sell the jewellery, take their 10% and give the rest back to him. Gajraj goes to a jewellery shop to sell the stuff. Coincidently, AD (Aftab Shivdasani), running away from the police steals Gajraj's van. Murari (Rajpal Yadav) Hazari (Sanjay Mishra) & Chetta Singh (Vijay Raaz), who are also running away from the police, jump in the same van. Here onwards, a comic chase starts where sometimes the police and sometimes Gajraj chase them. Gajraj fires at the van's tyre causing it to hit a tree. Here, the group come to know that there is crores of jewellery in the van. They run away with it. Disguised as policemen, they reach a village. However, this village, Madhav Garh, is terrorized by Durjan Singh. The villagers think that the police have come here to save them from the dacoits. with the real police inspector PP waiting outside the village for them, the team is left with no choice but to fight the dacoits...

Father and daughter re-unite with the help of a locket, Johnny Lever as a gender confused daku leader, a village in distress, Gulshan Grover, Shakti Kapoor (oh how we missed you, Kader Khan!), bags of gold, dance numbers at random places, and a bomb blast clip taken directly from another film and inserted here. And above all, it’s the effervescent dialogue which shakes you up and forces you to take a look around, lest you question whether you slipped through the cracks of time and were ported back to the kitschiest, campiest decade of Bollywood. And I do not mean this in the retro cool sense at all.

To say it is a tribute to the 90s would be giving the makers of the film undue credit. But it is assured that they have never seen or heard of cinema before or after this decade. Disconnected plots weave in and out of each other mouthing inane and unbelievably incoherent lines – whatever does a “bharela karela” mean???? – and an absurd cast of characters embarrass themselves coming together to create a film that is outdated and nonsensical at every level. In fact, it’s debatable whether this is a film at all. So let me save your time and mine. This one raises a stink a mile away. It’s best left in the last decade, gone and forgotten.
