Milky Beauty Tamannaah Bhatia-starrer Babli Bouncer directly released today on Disney Plus Hotstar. Padma Shri Madhur Bhandarkar is the director of this movie.
Babli Tanwar (Tamannaah Bhatia) is a small-town carefree girl with an aim to marry a guy chosen by her parents. She meets her teacher’s son Viraj (Abhishek Bajaj) at an event, loves him and decides to do a job as he likes independent girls. With the help of Kukku (Sahid Vaid), she becomes a bouncer at a night pub in Delhi. Did Viraj accept her love? What happened next in her life? These questions will be answered in the main movie.
This is the first of its kind role for Tamannaah. She needs to be appreciated for accepting a different role. She fits well in the role of Babli, a tom-boy kind of girl with spontaneity, sense of humour and also innocence. Besides, Sahid Vaid delivers good performance as Kukku. Though his scenes are very less, he makes us laugh with his innocent performance.
Abhishek Bajaj, Saurabh Shukla, and Sabyasachi Chakrabarthy justify their roles. The crispy runtime is one of the finest things about the movie.
The big letdown is the direction of famous filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar. No one can expect this kind of film from the National Award Winner. One who is aware of his sensational filmography will definitely feel bad for the director after watching this film.
The story is quite simple and absolutely poor yet predictable. No scene in the film looks fresh and also fails to amuse viewers. The pale story with laggy screenplay makes Babli Bouncer a routine drama. The lag in the scenes tests our patience.
Though Tamannaah shoulders the film from the first frame to the last frame, the film fails to impress as it lacks an interesting story and engaging narration. The biggest question is what Madhur Bhandarkar wanted to say with this film. The efforts of Tamannaah are in vain.
Madhur Bhandarkar could have written a better story that justifies the title. Maybe this is why the makers opted for a direct OTT release. The climax is not appealing as well, blame the story.
Madhur Bhandarkar fails to create magic with Babli Bouncer. Music by Tanishk Bagchi and Karan Malhotra is average and songs are not up to the mark. Editing could have been better by chopping off a few scenes. The production values are good and so is the camerawork.
On the whole, Babli Bouncer is an unimpressive movie with poor writing and direction. Tamannaah is impressive and those who admire her might like the flick. With no second thought, audiences can skip Babli Bouncer.
