Unwelcome guests at a village wedding


Bin Bulaye Baraati - movie review

Bin Bulaye Baraati is a hilarious story which takes off when Gulshan Grover (Durgan Singh) a dangerous dacoit meets the don Mukesh Tiwari (Gajraj) at a casino to sell his diamonds and jewels. Aftab Shivdasani (as AD) who is on the run takes away with the van full of dacoit’s fortune. Bin Bulaye Baraati movie review…

As lovers, AD and Shreya (Priyanka Kothari) are on the run, they come across criminals Hazari (Sanjay Mishra) and Murari (Rajpal Yadav) who have just robbed the Police Commissioner’s home, and Chetta Singh (Vijay Raaz) who has stolen the car belonging to the Commissioner’s wife, Kusum (Rati Agnihotri). Shreya is the niece of Police Sub-Inspector Pralay Pratap Singh (Om Puri).

The cat and mouse game of the chase results into a chaotic pile-up with more characters colliding together, leading to dramatic and comical sequences where all of them end up to take shelter at Madhavgarh village.

Bin Bulaye Baraati continues with a string of characters like Rajo (Shweta Tiwari), Sajjan Singh (Johnny Lever), Ajay Prakash (Shakti Kapoor), Manoj Joshi (Loha Singh), Ranjeet (Hemant Panday) and a sexy dancer Mallika Sherawat.

Having stopped in Madhavgarh village, AD, Shreya and other criminals are on the run from police as well as other gangsters, so they disguise themselves using fake police uniforms.

Once they arrive in the village just in time to stop Loha Singh (Manoj Joshi) from molesting a woman. Having taken them to be real law officials, the town’s appreciative residents welcome them and throw a feast in their honor.

They find it comfortable to continue to masquerade as cops, and they make themselves at home, but the Black Cobra gang tracks them down and plots to capture and kill them.

The excitement unfolds as these characters face-off each other in a once-in-a-lifetime performance packed with healthy comedy, drama and action backed by the melodies.

It was expected to create laughter on the edge of the seat as the movie comes to a thrilling climax. With such talented seasoned character actors known for their comic timings, it could have been a genuine humorous film. Unfortunately their mere presence isn’t enough to prop the film as it falls flat with a directionless script and mish mash of characters that you start thinking whether to laugh or just pity the innocent characters that are in it just for the money.

Mallika Sherawat is there for a special item song ‘Shalu Ke Thumke’ which too isn’t impressive and the other item number is done by Shweta Tiwari in ‘Jawani Ka Achar Dalogi’ which is targeted to the masses.

With such a line-up of seasoned comedians, Bin Bulaye Baraati could have been a laugh ride. But the director is mistaken that their mere presence was enough to prop the film, and that too having an ordinary script and unimpressive dialogues.
