Babumoshai Bandookbaaz Movie Review: Plot Analysis
The movie is totally based on a weak plot that has almost nothing to offer to people except for some amazing dialogues and great performances. When compared to Hollywood bounty hunting films, this film does not even match 1% of their excellence. The movie is far away from Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s previous crime drama Gangs Of Wasseypur by miles as well. This Kushan Nandy directorial has very few good scenes in its runtime and some dialogues that can make you feel that it is a kick-ass movie. However, it fails to match expectations and ends up being a dull film.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz Movie Review: Star Cast Performance
Yet again, Nawazuddin Siddiqui impresses in his role as Babu Bihari. He is the soul of the movie. On the other hand, Bidita Bag is good as Phulwa. However, she has nothing special to offer to this movie because of its average script. Phulwa’s body show and Babu’s attitude try to save this film but it sinks anyway.
Jatin Goswami was good as Banke Bihari. As a matter of fact, the whole cast of the movie was good enough for their respective roles. Though performances don’t make a good film, a good script does.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz Movie Review: Final Thoughts
The film looked promising. Nawazuddin Siddiqui went all out to promote the movie. From top Facebook groups presence to CBFC publicity, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz had the buzz on its side. However, it fails to match expectations by all means. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is simply amazing but the film is a dud! One star for this film!
