Badmaash Company released today - May 7
Life in the 1990`s was remarkably different for the average Indian. Consumerism had not set in. It was devoid of most of the luxuries of the West. In fact everything “imported” was good, and everything Indian, passé. Badmaash Company is an extraordinary story set in the 1990`s in middle class Bombay (as it was known then), of four ordinary youngsters Karan (Shahid Kapoor), Bulbul (Anushka Sharma), Chandu (Vir Das) and Zing (Meiyang Chang) who came together to start an import business of things longed for by yuppie Indians! What made their venture such a stupendous success was the fact that they found a way to beat the system and soon became the undisputed kings in their business, realising their one dream of making quick money by doing all the wrong things… the right way!
Rediff movie review:
Anushka Sharma, clad in technicolor pants and trying hard to look at ease while showing skin, is painful right from her first shot, where she overacts while chewing bubblegum. And giving her a casually sexy personality — complete with the most wannabe vocabulary of all time, freakin’ screwy stuff, yeah — doesn’t help matters.
Anupama Chopra for NDTV:
Badmaash Company is a proof that the Yash Raj Films formula is irrevocably broken. The posturing stars, snazzy styling, foreign locations, plastic textures and necessary dash of family values simply can’t cut it anymore…..Bulbul played by Anushka Sharma. This is a feisty wannabe model who won’t let any man but her husband or boyfriend pay for her and who has little trouble defending herself when the usual lecherous clients arrive.
