LOVE, BETRAYAL AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS

Story : Babu Bihari (Nawazuddin) and Banke Bihari (Jatin) are both contract killers in Uttar Pradesh, who often get paid to bump off the same game. At one point, they get their lines crossed and end up fighting each other as well.

Review : Be warned, this one belongs to the Gangs of Wasseypur genre where everyone is trigger-happy. Babu has been killing since the age of 10 when he first went hungry; Banke who admires Babu has always dreamt of being a professional killer. Banke’s girl Yasmeen (Shraddha) dances to Bollywood remixes and brings him contracts; Babu’s girl, Phulwa (Bidita) orders him to kill for her. So bullets fly thick and fast. Incidentally in the centre of the drama are Sumitra (Divya) and Dubey (Anil), politicians who are happy to hire these gun-toting goons for their own gains.

Joining in the games are the local police, who also have their own axe to grind. But bullets are not the only thing the men in this movie bite. They also have voracious sexual appetites and relish their women.

Babu’s life lights up whenever he is with Phulwa and Banke has a thing going with Yasmeen. However, when Banke meets Phulwa, he finds himself attracted to her too.
If you have feasted on cinema noir, this one serves up no surprises. The screenplay could have definitely been tighter. Yet Kushan Nandy gives you a film that you find yourself compulsively watching. Ghalib Asad Bhopali has got the goon-dictionary pat and his lines add grit to proceedings.

Nawazuddin’s self-deprecating remarks and his seamless transformation from killer to lover is applause-worthy. Jatin Goswami’s impresses; his lean frame and interesting voice lend to his screen appeal. Bidita is an interesting find for Bollywood. Not only does she smooch and seduce with a raw intensity, she wins brownie points for a couple of emotional scenes as well. Shraddha is tailor-made as the curly-haired nautch girl and kicks up a storm when she grooves to Hai re Hai mera ghunghta . Divya as the local behenji , who eats scented paan and spits fire is effective.
