Review of Besharam’s Theatrical Trailer

After the unprecedented success of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, Bollywood’s youngest superstar Ranbir Kapoor is all set to return once again in 2013. The trailer of his next release ‘Besharam’ is out. Before you proceed further to read the review, watch the theatrical trailer of the film if you haven’t already.

Although Ranbir has always been touted as the next superstar, he was safely playing the wait-and-watch game until now. There was a huge gap between each of his last four releases – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (May 31 2013), Barfi! (14 Sept 2012), Rockstar (11 Nov 2011) and Anjaana Anjaani (1 Oct, 2010). With this strategy, it appeared that he might be keen on going the Aamir Khan way by having limited quality releases. But one look at Ranbir’s list of upcoming movies gives an impression that he was patiently waiting to grow a fan base and an ever-rising hold on the audience. After Besharam, he will be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Bombay Velvet’, T-Series’s ‘Roy’, Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jaasoos’ and Imtiaz Ali’s next film – all of which should release before the end of 2015.

Besharam is the second directorial venture of Abhinav Kashyap after ‘Dabangg’ which was one of the biggest hits of 2010. Kashyap backed out from directing the sequel to ‘Dabangg’ and instead opted to direct an entirely new film, casting Ranbir Kapoor as the male protagonist. The actor will be seen sharing screen-space for the film time with his parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor. Pallavi Sharda plays the female lead, while Javed Jaffery will be seen in a negative role.

The trailer is entertaining as it manages to give a sneak peek into the film targeted both at the urban audience and the masses. After exploring Uttar Pradesh culture in ‘Dabangg’, Abhinav has shifted base to Haryana this time around. Just like his first film, names of the lead characters are unique and funny – Babli (Ranbir), Chulbul Chautala (Rishi) and Bulbul Chautala (Neetu). The music of the film has been composed by Lalit Sen (Lalit of Jatin-Lalit duo), who gave the chartbuster ‘Munni Badnaam’.

The Besharam trailer starts with Ranbir taking a leak and singing his Punjabi version of DDLJ song ‘Tujhe Dekha’. Apart from several scenes that remind you of Salman’s Dabangg,  Babli’s one-liner to Chulbul too has references to the 2010 film – ‘sirf naam Chulbul hone se koi Dabangg nahi ban jaata’. The film’s tagline goes perfectly with the title too – “Na sammaan ka moh, na apmaan ka bhay”, translated as “No want for respect, no fear of disrespect”. Flaunting a half baked Punjabi accent, Ranbir will be seen doing performing a few action sequences for the first time in his career.

Overall, a trailer with all the masala ingredients, the whole point being to entertain every section of the audience, even if that means going over-the-top with the dialogues and Ranbir’s expressions. That’s exactly what Abhinav Kashyap said at the trailer launch last evening too “Ranbir is the hero amongst the masses and a hero with whom everyone will relate to. I am not trying to propagate any social message through my film. He is here to entertain everyone, even a poor man, who is not educated”

Besharam releases on a national holiday for Gandhi Jayanti, which happens to be a Wednesday. So the film gets an extended 5 day weekend.  Given Ranbir’s fan-following and the success of his last film, Besharam will undoubtedly open to a fantastic response . Records could be broken!

  • —> ‘Dabangg’ which was one of the biggest hits of 2010.’

    What do you mean by ‘one of’ ? It was the biggest hit of 2010. Get it straight Indicine.

  • the trailer is not so good n it become worse coz ranbir s a miscast,he should learn from shahid,how to look cool in a masala movie

  • Its time for only shahid, i bet with rk fans ppnh col more than besaram. Acc to me i haven’t seen worst trailor like besaram ever and music looks poor and tu meri agal bagal from ppnh already become chatbuster

  • YJHD released at a time when there were no big releases. Rk is an overrated star. If he clashes with srk or akki then we shall see. He is nowhere near the khans and hrithik.

  • I can mention some scenes were over the top due to the factor of director abhinav kashyap who was brother of anurag kashyap so it will be like that because of salman involved in Dabaang it has not overtopped as half of the film was directed by salman khan

    But Ranbir is Mindblowing with his acting but action scenes were like comedy scenes there serious intensity of action is missing

  • I am the fan of the khans.since 1990 when every newcomers came then there were lot of speculations that they are going to be substituted. But it lols.fluently speaking the signature steps of fraunding the arms suits only for srk.if any one does that step then our heart automatically tell that they copy it from SRK.Similar case with Salman even though the content is nonsense his mindblowing presence in the movie made any one to go theaters.Looking trailer seems nonsense even though we used to go theatre because of our love and affection towards case of amir he has good choice but in case of popularity most fan give either salman or srk at first he may be 2nd or 3rd choice.

  • Ranbir looks good in the trailer but trailer is not good, starting 1.30min is bad, after that for one min trailer looks good and remaining 30min again gone bad, so it is definitely way below the mark, and one thing is sure from trailer that this will not been any record breaking movie, and those rk fans who were rising too high with YJHD success will come to know that this will get same opening what YJHD have but here in case it releasing on National Holiday, pitty to BOI who thinks that Besharam will break 3 idiots record and ETT Opening day record.
    since 09-aug to 02-oct there are big movies releasing every friday so the curiosity to see big movie will not been there in audience which was there at the time of YJHD released coz the absence of Big movies before YJHD. so i think this will definitely not path breaking for ranbir. for YJHD it was just an average movie but still did great business due to above mentioned factor.

  • I’m surprised to see such a positive review. I saw nothing good in trailer. Average comedy, typical plot, poor music. It’s hard to believe Ranbir chose this movie after doing a film like ‘Barfi’. I appreciate his thought to try something different, but this one doesn’t look good at all. I know ‘Masala’ genre has been a safe choice from past several years, but films like TMK and Himmatwala has proved that it doesn’t ‘guarantee’ success. It might get a good opening, but I’m not sure if it could sustain should it receive negative response.

  • Too wacky for Ranbir to pull off convincingly. He’s a talented guy but has an urban image. This stuff is not in his zone.

  • Surprised to see 3000+likes and 3000+dislikes for this movie trailer

    Moreover it has some Delhi belly shades but Ranbir is Rocking as it was declared he was in Top Spot

  • Hey friends this is one of the most awaited flim of 2013. If you want to know the latest updates, controversies related to Besharam you can now download free official Besharam app.
