Movie Review: Bewakufiyaan

Bewakoofiyaan is a story about Mohit (Ayushmann Khurrana) who is an over confident marketing guy in an airline who has a perfect life with a hot girlfriend- Mayera (Sonam Kapoor) who is working in a bank and earns more than Mohit . The story begins when Mohit loses his job and his car and finally his new house, and how he adjust with this and how he constantly tries to work everything out. He also has to support his “love in the time of recession”.

Bewakoofiyaan has an interesting concept of  love in the time of recession, is love enough to live a life or money also plays an important part? The movie tries to answer this question. The film starts very well with Mohit (Ayushmann Khurra) in full form and with Sonam Kapoor by his side, Sonam looks amazing as a banker she looks like millionair and acts well, plus there is Rishi Kapoor whom we all know can pull of any character. The humor in the film is provided by Rishi Kapoor only. Bewakoofiyaan falls flat with half baked script. Audience will be engaged when Mohit loses his job and new car (bought on EMI) but then he keeps losing his home and audience gets little bored, Mayera happily supports Mohit in his journey both emotionally and financially. But this film goes no where. It doesn’t provide the emotions which we are looking forward to, and the climax is simply flat and monotonous.

What’s Good?

The lead actors, their chemistry with each other and some quick one liners, direction and cinematography .

What’s Bad?

Story is half baked, music is strictly average and dialogues could have been better.


Bewakoofiyaan is an average, and light weight movie which remains very light throughout, it could have been much more. Go if you want to see a fine acting and some humour. I am going with 2 Bits out of 5.
