Sharman Joshi starrer Babloo Bachelor, as the name suggests, is all about Babloo’s bachelorhood. Who is Babloo and what keeps him bachelor? Well, Babloo (Sharman Joshi) belongs to a wealthy family in Lucknow, handles his father’s business and is yet to get married, even at 35!! The fact is that he is in search of a ‘perfect’ life partner!
‘Babloo Bachelor’ begins with scenes showing Babloo’s family’s failed attempts in finding a ‘perfect life partner’ for their son. However, after many proposals, Babloo ends up meeting someone (Avantika played by Pooja Chopra) he falls for, finally, and agrees to get married. But it was not supposed to be. Why?
Later, Babloo ends up liking yet another girl (Swati played by Tejashri Pradhan) that he bumps into, at a wedding celebration. This time Babloo finally gets married (to Swati). But wait, there is a twist in the plot here too! Yes, this time his ‘wife’ ditches him on their honeymoon and flees to Mumbai leaving behind a letter.
The family forces Babloo to get his wife Swati back from Mumbai. The plot is about Babloo’s search for his ‘wife’, who helps him find his wife and what happens next with the ensuing twists and turns.
Director Agnidev Chatterjee had a decent plot at his disposal and an actor like Sharman Joshi to lead. Though the three lead actors have performed well, basis the plot, there was enough scope to emote well and utilise the humourous punches. There are scenes where the dialogues seem below the belt types and could have been worked upon for a family film.
The soundtrack is composed by Jeet Gannguli and Indradip Dasgupta, lyrics written by Rashmi Virag, Kumaar and Ashish Pandit. There are 7 tracks with “Kasam” by Arijit Singh, “Aye Meri Zindagi” by Papon, “Jiya Nahin Lagta” by Jeet Gannguli, Akanksha Sharma, “Banna Banni” by Bappi Lahiri, Shreya Ghoshal, “Jealous” (Lyrics by Kumaar) Jeet Gannguli, Dev Negi, “Aye Meri Zindagi (Female Version)” Payal Dev “Tum Ho” (Lyrics by Ashish Pandit & Music by Indraadip Dasgupta) sung by Arijit Singh
The music of this film matches the mood of the story and the song “Tum Ho” in Arijit Sing’s voice blends in with the story.
