Movie Review - Banjo

Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director: Ravi Jadhav
Cast: Riteish Deshmukh, Nargis Fakhri, and Dharmesh Yelande.

Taraat (Ritesh Deshmukh), a local banjo player seeks fame, success, and money. In his pursuit, he crosses path with Christina who helps him accomplish his goals. The movie revolves around this man who creates a group called ‘Banjo’ which became very popular after so many hurdles, difficulties but made successfully. Taarat falls in love with Christina (Nargis Fakhri) in the mean time.  

What came as a set back to a superb movie was the lead actors failing to perform their best, Nargis fakhri’s struggle to act good was clearly seen in her cringe-inducing attempt to cash in on her American accent to generate laughs, in a sequence where she abuses the dealer in roadside gaalis , is nowhere near rib tickling.

Ritesh Deshmukh, known for his perfect comic timings, doesn’t exactly pass with flying colours either. He is trying too hard to convey the raw, roguish charm of a man but the role didn't really work for him.

Between musicians who double up as goons ,Jadhav derails from a slum to stardom tale and somehow looses the focus from the storyline becoming more about conflict and melodrama, but yet I would say Ravi Jadhav's directorial debut in Bollywood is definitely a one-time watch and you are going to be impressed at several points. Play it again? No, some movies don't have a repeat value--- but I repeat that you'll have fun if you go for Banjo once.

I would give Banjo 2 out of 5 shors!
