KISS AND BREAK-UP

Befire Story: What starts as a crazy one-night stand ends up in a relationship. But Dharam and Shyra fall out of love just as quickly. Where will life take them now?

Befire Review: Can two temperamental, volatile exes become friends? In a Yash Raj film, sure they can.

Dharam (Ranveer Singh) and Shyra (Vaani Kapoor) have recently broken up and can’t see eye-to-eye. In song-filled flashbacks, we see their meet cute, how they dared each other to do crazy things and got into a live-in relationship, only to realize that they were incompatible.

They soon come to terms with their break-up but decide to remain friends. When their individual love lives restart, the friendship gets tested.

Befikre is a victim of the inevitability of love stories. There really can only be two outcomes, and then, the journey to those outcomes makes the movie. The plot is unoriginal, but the sparkling chemistry between the leads pulls you through most parts of the movie. Essentially, it’s like the same banner's Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, but in reverse.

Dharam is every feminist’s nightmare: a homophobic straight boy from Delhi who slut-shames girls, thinks lesbians will sleep with him and is offended by the lack of remorse a girl feels after breaking-up with him. Only Singh could have pulled off this character without being obnoxious. He’s fun to watch in a departure from his intense Bajirao role, but to be fair, he’s familiar with this territory. Shyra is a sorted girl with a good head on her shoulders and Vaani’s breezy act makes you wonder why she hasn’t worked more!

There are innumerable throwbacks to DDLJ and most bring a smile to your face. One that particularly stands out is a mother-daughter scene, much like the Farida Jalal-Kajol scene. There, Jalal's character told Kajol's that women have to suppress their feelings; in this updated version, Shyra’s mother tells her to stand up for herself.

Befikre has some honest, funny moments and the attempt to upgrade the genre is apparent, but you don’t come away with anything new.

If you care for some laughs, some YRF nostalgia and are, well, promiscuous with your choice of romcoms, you could take a chance with this one.

Absolutely a time waster movie. Bollywood wants to be Hollywood but it just doesn't work. Childish, annoying and meaningless storyline. Half of the stuff in the movie doesn't happen in the real world. Wake up Bollywood!
