“For I don’t care too much for money, for money can’t buy me love.” – The Beatles

Love vs Money- This is perhaps the most complex battle of all times! Love and Money are two inseparable notions that give meaning to our lives. Try imagining living without either of them and you would fumble at the very first thought. Director Nupur Asthana’s Bewakoofiyaan tries to sort it out for you! A simple yet fairly textured venture, it is a light-hearted take on the importance of love and money in our lives.

Plot: A perfectly bonded couple goes through a bumpy ride when the man loses his job over-night. This scabrous phase in their life eventually makes them realize their inevitable priorities.

Performances:  Ayushmann Khurana  is a promising entry in bollywood . Despite of being a couple of films old, he possesses tremendous confidence and bewitching charm to impress the audience.

Sonam Kapoor is the typically sumptuous chic of bollywood and it very much reflects in the kind of roles she chooses for herself. Cleaarly, she likes the comfort that these roles bring to her despite of the limitations attached. I have never been fond of her acting skills and I still stick to my opinion!

The most delighting aspect of the film is the presence of Rishi Kapoor as an apprehensive father. This man has a magical aura that even the contemporaries can’t match up with.  This is yet another stellar performance by Rishi Kapoor.

MusicComposed by Raghu Dixit, the album of Bewakoofiyaan features six tracks all together. Sadly, the album turns out to be extremely weak and uninteresting. Not even a single track is worth paying attention to. The compositions are a complete lackluster and good to be ignored.

What’s GoodThere is a consistency in the subtle humor in the film that makes you stick till the end. The story is light-hearted and quite relatable.

What’s Bad:  A bland screenplay, a drowsy music score and the lifeless chemistry between the leading pair.

Despite of lacking any exceptionality that could draw you towards the film, Bewakoofiyaan somehow makes for a decent watch this week. It may not go out of the way to keep you laughing but it will definitely keep you entertained throughout. If not for Sonam Kapoor’s bikini cameo, you can definitely watch it for Rishi Kapoor’s scintillating performance and Ayushmann’s heart-melting cuteness!

Verdict:  It would really not be a bewakoofy to watch this one!
