Baat bann gayi official trailer
Baat Bann Gayi is a Hindi comedy film directed by Shuja Ali, presented by Vibhu Agarwal and produced by Sayed Asif Jah & Megha Agarwal. The film features Ali Fazal, Gulshan Grover, Anisa Butt, Amrita Raichand, Razak Khan and Akshay Singh. This movie was filmed in Mumbai and Singapore.
A successful author (Ali Fazal) pretends to be a geek in order to impress his girlfriend's (Anisa) brother (Gulshan Grover), because he expects his brother-in-law to be intelligent. While the hero is almost on the verge of winning over his girl's bhaiya, his rowdie lookalike shows up, adding to the drama. That's not all. Even the bhaiya has a lookalike which doubles the drama and confusion.
The major issue with this movie is the fact that it borrows heavily from films like Chupke Chupke, Golmaal and Seeta Aur Geeta. Even if we ignore the lack of originality, the formula that worked in the 1970s looks way too outdated for today. Besides, those films had a solid script and some great comic timing. Here, barring Gulshan Grover, everyone else looks like they are trying too hard to make you laugh.Blame it on the poor writing.
What disturbed us the most were the terrible sound effects (e.g., toilet flush sounds) which hound you throughout the film. That's another reason why the film puts you off. In a desperate bid to entertain the audience, we are bombarded with these fake and supposedly funny noises throughout.
Razzak Khan looks disinterested in the film while the heroine and her sister-in-law are made to look plain silly. Ali Fazal rises above the writing but eventually, the film lets him down. Gulshan Grover underplays his homosexual character well.
