Befire movie review: Set in Paris, Befikre is a free spirited, contemporary love story of Dharam and Shyra played by YRF’s current favourite Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor respectively. Aditya Chopra’s fourth feature as a director, Befikre is a hot and sexy film with lot of kissing scenes. Despite its thin plot , the film holds its attention with the good looking stars, their energy, songs, dances and many lovely day and night scenes in Paris. Chopra’s film reminds us that a well-shot Bollywood romantic film can be so entertaining even when it does not necessarily offer anything new.
Befikre opens with a string of kisses. As the credits appear on the screen, we see several characters on the streets of Paris — young, old and of different colours, kissing as Labon Ka Karobaar plays in the background. Singh and Kapoor kiss with full abandonment in Befikre, again and again, and it is sexy, fun and absolutely okay. The lead pair are natural dancers and even in many of the film’s choreographed sequences they move their bodies with a lot of ease.
JaideepSahni’s and Vishal-Shekhar’s ‘UdeDilBefikre’ and ‘Nashe Si Chad Gayi’ are already Chartbusters. Since the melodies are eye appealing as well, the songs are popular among youth.
Story of Befikre
Dharam is a young man from Karol Bagh in Delhi and he retains a bit of Bittoo Sharma’s Janakpuri accent from Band Baaja Baaraat. Dharam arrives in Paris to perform at a stand-up comedy club called Delhi Belly.
In Paris Dharam meets Shrya (played with a lot of confidence by Kapoor) — an Indian woman, born and raised in France. They dance, drink, sing songs, fall in love, move in together, fall out of love and then they decide to become friends.
In Befikre Dharam and Shyra take it one level further when in a state of confusion and anger they get engaged and even close to marrying other partners.
Of course, Befikre is a Hindi film and no surprise how it will end.
There are some messy moments in the film, especially the weird unruly slapstick scene towards the end in a church.
The plot may or may not strike a chord but there is never a dull moment in the narrative Filmmaking at its best. Ranveer Singh is marvellous and an incredible actor. He Steals the Show all the way. Vaani Kapoor is Revolution. She looks Stunning & gave Top Notch Performance. Their Chemistry is Terrific.
Befikre is loaded with a carefree spirit. The movie will definitely appeal to youth.
