The first trailer of BESHARAM that has been released few days ago is audacious enough to rankle the purists of cinema and the fans of cinema as it is based on spoofs, spoofs on the contemporaries as also the seniors. The opening shot of the trailer in itself riles as Ranbir Kapoor is shown pissing of on mustard crop in its vibrant yellow hues, humming a parody of the song- 'Tujhe Dekha to ye jaana sanam' from DDLJ as if he is pissing on the brand image of the iconic film and by doing so is trying to make his own image.
Subsequently the trailer also shows the spoof on Salman Khan first when Ranbir Kapoor opens the button of his shirts to display a hairy shirt and through the dialogue- 'Har aadmi chulbul Pandey naam rakh lene se' DABANGG nahee ban jaata. One wonders, whether the DABANGG spoof is more to do with the fact that the director of BESHARAM is Anurag Kashyap who had directed DABANGG but he was not co-opted to direct DABANGG-2 so he is taking his revenge in a satirical manner through Ranbir Kapoor for being sidelined for DABANGG 2.
When a comedy star, or those actors who are identified as comedians on the screen, enact such kind of performances, of spoofing on the famous stars of the yore, it is taken in a humorous manner, but when an established star like Ranbir Kapoor also tries to bracket him into that category, then it does not augur well.
Ranbir indeed has become the star to gain entry on his own in the 100 crore club, but does it give him a liberty to cast important iconic moments of Hindi cinema of arguably all-time greats like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in a satirical way? After all, now that SRK and Salman Khan have joined hands, and if they decide to come together then the might of the box office combination of these towering figuring would sweep away all the past established cannons of success.
One also wonders whether the supposed leak of the pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif from Spain is also in a way associated with BESHARAM or audacity, coming as it does close to the release of the trailer of BESHARAM, it indeed begs for answers.
There is a saying in Hindi क्षमा बडन को चाहिए छोटन को उत्पात , and Ranbir Kapoor being small as compared to SRK and Salman in terms of age and experience , he can get away with उत्पात for quite some time, but it ought not be stretched to the point where it snaps and could bring about retaliation
