BIN BULAYE BARAATI boasts of having umpteen comedians, who have tickled our funny bones time and again. And having as many as three item numbers, it clearly aims to be a complete masala film.
Gulshan Grover returns to his patented 'Bad Man' image as he plays the ferocious dacoit Durjan Singh aka Black Cobra. He gives the responsibility of selling off a bag full of jewels worth 50 crores to petite goons Gajraj (Mukesh Tiwari) and Ranjeet (Hemant Pandey). Due to their carelessness, the bag lands up with AD (Aftab Shivdasani) and his girlfriend Shreya (Priyanka Kothari), who are running away from police inspector PP (Om Puri). PP also happens to be Shreya's mama, who is against her relationship with AD. While on the run, they are joined by the trio of Murari (Rajpal Yadav), Hazari (Sanjay Mishra) and Chetta Singh (Vijay Raaz), who are also being chased by the police. Together, they find themselves in a small village which is under the influence of Black Cobra. Since they enter the village in police attire, the villagers look up to them as saviors who can free them from Black Cobra's clutches.
With a plethora of actors who are known to tickle your funny bone, one would have at least expected a few laughs from BIN BULAYE BARAATI. But it turns out to be a tedious watch and a test of your patience. As if the other jokes were not enough, you have Black Cobra's gay brother Sajjan Singh (Johny Lever), who makes for all the homophobic jokes. Its plot of zeroes turning heroes by saving the villagers from the bad guys is done to death in the past. Even the treatment is poor. The predictable climax is totally uninspiring.
Anand Raj Anand's music is passable. Johny Lall's cinematography is unimpressive. Pranav Dhiwar's editing is tacky.
Aftab Shivdasani acts well. Gulshan Grover is fine, but his character lacks the cruelness required for a villain. Priyanka Kothari needs to seriously work on her acting skills. Johny Lever is far from being funny. In fact, his gay act caricaturist and offensive. Shakti Kapoor overacts. Talented actors like Om Puri, Vijay Raaz, Sanjay Mishra and Rajpal Yadav are wasted. Mallika Sherawat is good in her item number. Shweta Tiwari is nice. Shweta Bharadwaj looks alluring in her item number.
These BIN BULAYE BARAATI are certainly not welcome.
