Bajatey Raho Review: Projected as a laugh riot in its promotional campaign, BAJATEY RAHO is actually a revenge con drama trying too hard to entertain the viewer with its not so hilarious sequences. The film has a star-cast promising you an enjoyable ride but the not so happening script never lets them perform to the best of their ability except in the final half an hour. As a result, till the story progression gains it desired momentum, it becomes too late for this comparatively short duration film of only 107 minutes.
BAJATEY RAHO fails to make an instant connect with the viewer mainly due to its slow and non-hilarious script which tries desperately to bring in that desired humor in vain. Its major attraction i.e. the star-cast mostly remains underutilized with actors like Vinay, Ranveer and Tusshar simply doing nothing substantial on the screen unexpectedly. Ravi Kishan and Vishakha act fine but the romantic angle between Vishakha and Tushhar was entirely out of sync. In the remaining cast Rajender Sethi(the TV Star’s father), Rajinder Nanu (Raman), Vikas Mohla (pawan), Anya Singh (Gudiya), Nikhil Pandey (as the TV Star) and Husaan Saad (the Kid) provide their much needed support in the events, particularly in the last hour. But it was quite surprising to see Kamlesh Gill (the famous Dadi of VD) being wasted only in 2-3 scenes.
Yet BAJATEY RAHO can be seen once for its two good songs, a few entertaining scenes of Dolly Ahluwalia and a truthful performance of Brijendra Kala playing the ignored personal secretary superbly. It has a better second half which largely saves the film, turning it into an average entertainer in the end, quite safely.
