Movie Review “Badmash Company” (2010)
Genre: Con, Romance
Director: Parmeet Sethi
Star Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vir Das, Meiyang Chang and others
Banner: Yash Raj
“Badmaash Company” another Yash Raj film with great packaging but not so great content. To start with I like the title of the movie and the star cast was decent enough. Movie was directed by the first time director Parmeet Sethi who also written the film. For first time he did good job; but there was so much more can be done to the concept.
“Badmaash Company” is a two hours and twenty three minutes long movie trying to convey importance of honesty and ethics in life.
This movie is a story of Karan (played by Shahid Kapoor). He like any other youngster in India don’t want to spend his life working for same company and same job, he dreams of getting rich quick.
He starts out as a carrier for a small-time smuggler, where he met three likeminded friends (played by Anushka Sharma, Vir Das and Indian Idol fame Meiyang Chang). After completing this job Karan gets hang of it and eventually moves his way up to bigger con jobs and bigger bucks with his friends. But once their good days and fortune is over they fall on the path of destruction. Can they come out of it? Will they be friend after that? Will they learn from their mistakes? This is the story of Badmash Company
Movie has some very good moments amongst the friends. But there are very dull moments too. Although all the lead actors gave professional performance they could not cover up for the defects in the script. Climax of the movie was awfully bad, even school kids won’t buy that.
If I have to rate this movie I am going to give it 5 out 10 and I think that’s very generous of me.
