a simple rom-com movie with no emotional baggage. Mohit Chaddha (Ayushmann
Khurrana) is a marketing professional vying for a promotion at workplace. He is
in steady love with Mayera (Sonam Kapoor), a financial brain with a great sense
of fashion. Mohit is confident to win Mayera’s dad V. K. Sehgal’s heart (played
by Rishi Kapoor). Life seems picture perfect for both of them until Mohit is
given a pink slip soon after his promotion due to recession and economic
jobless professional, his initial “cool-confident-never mind, I would get
another job” attitude to compromising with the job profile, his love life,
intending to walk the aisle with the girl friend in spite of Rs. 653/- in the
bank account, and above all taking the efforts during his ‘probationary period’

with Anvita Dutt as the lyricist. The song Gulcharrey (sung by Benny Dayal
& Aditi Singh Sharma) and Bewakoofiyan, the title song (sung by Raghu
Dixit) are youthful (minus lyrics). Director Habib Faisal has penned down the
lyrics of Khamakhaan, which is well sung by Neeti Mohan and Ayushmann Khuraana.
The song Rumaani Sa (sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Mohit Chauhan) is good. Vishal
Dadlani sang Aye Jigida, which is also just ok. Music could have been definitely far better.
intention would have been to focus on the issues very lightly.
me not spill the beans, although the end is predictable, still it is a
must-watch sweet scene.
Bewakoofi to watch Bewakoofiyan, a light-hearted movie.
