Director Nupur Asthana's MUJHSE FRAANDSHIP KAROGE under the banner Y Films,' a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films' was a runaway success, and its music by talented musician, Raghu Dixit too was noticed. So, one does expect some good music by the same team (this time for the YRF) for their next venture BEWAKOOFIYAAN which stars actor-singer Ayushman Khurrana, whose previous two films have had chartbusting music.
Techno beats and synthesizers commence 'Gulcharrey', a racy situational track about the 'mast' and carefree life of lead protagonist with not a care in the world and not worrying about the future. Benny Dayal and Aditi Singh Sharma render the average number with zest.
Neeti Mohun and Ayushman Khurrana gel well for another situational number 'Khamakhaan' which is slightly different from the usual 'chhed-chhad' number. Here the leads are not fighting for each other's attention but it's the money problems that they are facing that is keeping them apart. The tune is not fresh and has a huge hangover of Rahman of yore (RANGEELA days)!

The composer Raghu Dixit, who is also a very good singer (with superb macho vocals), comes behind the mike for the title track, 'Bewakoofiyaan', a high on energy and fresh and youthful composition. The lyrics convey the theme of the movie well and the musical arrangements with electric guitars, drums, flute and bass make up a good soundtrack.
Mohit Chauhan and the neo- nightingale Shreya Ghoshal (whose flawed diction is a big letdown) render the racy love ballad, 'Rumaani Sa', which is average and has a heard before feel to it. Anvita's lyrics though are unique and fresh with simple Urdu and Hindi.
Sonam as the 'accommodating in love' and fully mature girl is terrific in her portrayal as Mayera. Hotness is how her boyfriend describes her, every time they meet. 'Hotness' she is on screen. It's so rare to see natural beauty on screen today, with every other heroine looking like the other one! More importantly, director Nupur ensures that Sonam displays all the attributes of an emotionally stable child who has had a sound upbringing.
I was wondering whether the pairing of Ayushmann with Sonam would work. But I was pleasantly surprised to see the two hit it off on screen. The 'height difference' notwithstanding, Aysuhmann matches Sonam as the two pair up for a lovey dovey love story.CHECK OUT: BEWAKOOFIYAAN - Songs Lyrics
Rishi Kapoor gets to make some amends from his BESHARAM act. His character has been balanced beautifully and he performs gracefully.
BEWAKOOFIYAAN is a love story that is handled with maturity, and although there are a few 'unbelievable' scenes (like the one where Mohit keeps going to his work place to 'play act' to fool Mayera's dad), the youth will relate to it.
It's light, simple and uncomplicated. Straight from the heart!
