My Gut Feel and comments:
Besharam is claiming to be a light hearted comedy entertainer and I am sensing that it would live upto the expectation. Abhinav Kashyap is associated with commercial projects which are high on content as per as entertainment quota is concern.
Ranbir Kapoor is an prominent performer who can carry off even a mediocre script well with his exuberant enactment. Audience does look forward to movies like besharam these days.
The reason of my optimism is the overall presentation and Abhinav Kashyap’s association with this movie. Star value is never a criteria of my judgment as I rejected “Once upon a time in Mumbai again” and “Satyagraha” before the release in my previews as I was sensing a week story, screenplay and narration.
Recent release “Phata poster nikla hero “ backed by ace director Raj Kumar Santoshi was also claiming to be an entertainer however I sensed it as a below average movie and it eventually turned out to be the same.
I am intuiting, besharam would turned out to be an watchable entertainer and expecting a box office hit. I would give this movie 3.5 out of 5 stars, two days before the release.
