Movie Review: ‘Be Careful’

Film: “Be-Careful”
Cast: Rajniesh Duggal, Zaid Hamid, Tanisha Mukherjee, Kiran Rathore, Shilpi Sharma, Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra and Rajpal Yadav
Director: Chandrakant Singh
Rating: 1/2*

High on testosterone and low on IQ, “Be-Careful” is an eyesore. Inspired by films like “Masti” and “No Entry”, this comic drama is the story of two promiscuous and wanton husbands Sameer (Rajneish Duggal) and Anand (Zaid Hamid).

The movie begins with Sameer, a businessman, interviewing a prospective employee. “What’s your name?” he asks. “Meri lele,” comes the reply. Sameer pounces on the woman, she resists. Following the commotion, Sameer’s business partner Anand enters the cabin, only to repeat the sequence.

Later, the candidate clears the confusion that her name is Mary and she is married to one Mr. Lele, hence her name in Mary Lele.

Fed-up with the antics of their husbands, their wives — Anjali (Tanisha Mukherjee) and Kiran (Kiran Rathore), along with their fathers-in-law Asrani and Tiku Talsania, try to teach a lesson to the wannabe studs.

The men are banished without money to a Thailand hotel with several restrictions that would even put a monastery to shame. But Alas! They are hard to reform.

All the comedians in the film, right from Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra, Asrani, Tiku Talsania to Shakti Kapoor are wasted. With a wafer thin and a shoddily put script, non-energetic performances and a jarring screenplay, the film gives a jolt to one’s sensibilities.

The film tilts heavily on done-to-death scenes, puns and linguistic errors. With heavy punning on names like – Lele, Bure Lal (Shakti Kapoor), Kujlee, U-ganda, this film is no laugh riot by any imagination. Also with dialogues like, “Hey, smart, dashing, handsome, awesome, how have you changed the mausam?” This film is sheer trash.

On the technical front, though Najeeb Khan’s cinematography is decent, the visual impact is lost due to the various special effects, making the film look gimmicky.

The music is nothing to write about. The item number “Will you be my Maahiye” starring Tulip Joshi is run of the mill. The loud screechy background score and hollow audiography is another sore point of the film.

A word for director Chandrakant Singh. He has not improved since his first film “Rama Rama Kya Hai Drama”.
