Babli Bouncer (2022): Typical Ending With A Twist

Babli Bouncer is unlike any Madhur Bhandarkar has done before. A comedic take on the old glass ceiling problem with a fresh female twist. But sadly, Babli Bouncer is soulless, unlike many of his earlier efforts. The movie isn’t sure if it wants to be a lighthearted comedy with a tonne of cliches or a coming-of-age drama. It strives to be both but ends up being neither, losing an intriguing plot and doing something big a disservice.

THE STORY

Babli Tanwar is an illiterate girl from the little village of Asola Fatepur, which is close to Delhi and has a high population of bouncers. Babli’s teacher thinks poorly of her since, although being of marriageable age, she hasn’t finished the 10th grade. Since she was a small child, Babli has been trained as a bouncer.

THE GOOD/ THE BAD

The only thing that makes the movie watchable is Tamanna Bhatia’s performance. Although the idea of a female lady bouncer and the actress breaking stereotypes is brilliant, the film’s poor execution causes it to fall flat.

The narrative and the astonishingly poor presentation are to blame for the film’s flaws. Even though Madhur Bhandarkar is known for his excellent filmmaking, this is one of his less noteworthy creations. A lot of the conversation seems forced, and there are a lot of moments that seem pointless and add nothing to the story. The movie’s script is incredibly poor and filled with gaps.

MY THOUGHTS
