We loved it in Gangs of Wasseypur, then again in Raman Raghav, and now, once again he dons the same impulsive and rash gangster avtaar in Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. It should not take much time to fall in love with the character of Nawazuddin who pretty much, runs the entire 3-minute trailer and owns his space as the protagonist. Shot in the rural lands of the country, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, is the story of a gangster who does practically everything, from killing people to falling in love.
- The film gives a clear indication of it being a one man show. But, timely appearances of Divya Dutta, Murli Sharma and Shradha Das lighten up the screen and could possibly share the load. The 3-minute long trailer gives a glimpse of a captivating Divya Dutta cameo, but we shall have to wait and watch to see how the remaining cast plays along.
- Dialogues have been the soul of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s powerful and engulfing performances and given the genre of the film, the screenplay has been wisely setup. Ranging from cheeky to bold, the dialogues explore almost every attribute that keeps the common man glued to the screen. The quality of direction looks profound as most scenes look well covered and complete. Whether it be the heated up intimate scenes or the ones where Nawazuddin just enjoys shooting people, the film is expected to be well put together.
- The story line of the film looks ordinary as the trailer hints at a discrete combination of power, romance and revenge. The makers keep in mind the ethnicity and background of the film which puts this gangster flick in the background of a rural India to add to the spontaneity and rudimentary attitude of the characters involved. The trailer promises no shortage of desi action and bloodshed as the film looks to dwell on the darker side of its characters.
- The background score plays along with the action and romance as once again the rural background forces a contrasting soundtrack. On one hand, the opening scene tunes us to a Lata Mangeshkar classic the following scenes get a hold of the jazzy Bollywood tunes. On the whole, the music matches the tone of the film, making it almost impossible up to mess up.
Summing up my analysis, Babumoshai Banddokbaaz is definitely what people could prefer over the Siddhart-Jacqueline starrer, A Gentleman. The trailer raises hopes and I sincerely wish the film does not crash them.
