Besharam - Top Reviews

Besharam, rambunctious and robust, does not offer much by way of narrative novelty. But like Dabangg, it sets a crackling pace and does not flinch from the prospect of going over the edge in its pursuit of cheap thrills.
Babli steals cars fears nothing and romances like a rowdy Romeo. But gets away with benevolence and besharmi.

An accurate way to describe Besharam would be to call it the cinematic equivalent of a dinner made with leftovers. There is a bit of everything, nothing is exactly fresh, and in the end you’re left wondering if it was wise to have chucked it all in togeth

Sonia Chopra, SIFY
The film’s saving grace is the other Kapoors — Rishi (as inspector Chulbul) and Neetu (playing head constable Bulbul) have tremendous chemistry; Chulbul’s version of ‘Badtameez Dil’ and a Gadar-inspired scene involving a tube-well are extremely funny.

In the mid 70's Amitabh Bachchan was having a dream run over the box office by churning out one after one hits and super hits. His movies quenched the thirst of his fans and the critics. Right from the 1973 till mid 80's almost every year had few hits fro

It would have worked if Kashyap and company focussed on just that bit instead of compromising on the novelty factor for 100-crore basics.
Vinayak Chakravorty, India Today
On the whole, Besharam is an ordinary film which suffers on three counts mainly – ordinary script, dull music and weak heroine. However, it has Ranbir Kapoor’s superstardom and the excellent initial (due to holiday of Gandhi Jayanti) as its plus points. O

Abhinav manages to keep Ranbir in almost every frame of the movie and not without reason. The movie rides on him and him alone along with the added performances of the sub cast. If you are a Ranbir fan do watch it. If you like over the top masala movies,

Kapoor in Besharam plays ace car thief Babli, who rocks a tux when needed, but sadly chooses to wrap himself in gift-wrapping paper most of the time.
