Quite a few loose chords!

'Chillar Party' had the versatile Ranbir Kapoor portray a roadside tapori in his item number 'Tai Tai Phiss' and the actor won hearts. 
 
Abhinav Kashyap's 'Besharam' extends the avatar to an entire film and Ranbir doesn't let his fans down. He is truly the heart of the film as the actor proves yet again that despite not being his style, he can still nail all the 'Dishum Dishum'. And Ranbir clearly states this in the climax when his character 'Babli' says, "Yeh Khoon Kharaba Apna Style Nahi, Yeh toh sirf Apna Talent Batana Tha".
 
The film revolves around Ranbir's character 'Babli' who is a car thief with a good heart (How? Watch the film to find out) and his encounters with his lady love Tara (Pallavi Sharda) and the comical cop couple Chulbul and Bulbul Chautala (Rishi and Neetu Kapoor).
 
Abhinav's second outing post 'Dabangg' has quite a few loose chords and if not for Ranbir, the film falls multiple folds short of expectations. 
 
Rishi and Neetu Kapoor are adorable, however, Ranbir's chemistry with newbie Pallavi Sharda is almost dead. The actress fails to impress. Amitosh Nagpal as Babli's friend and partner in crime does complete justice to his part.
 
Another highlight of the film are the multiple spoofs that are done on 'Dabangg', 'Mr. India', 'Gadar', 'DDLJ' and many more films. In fact, Hollywood too wasn't spared as Babli and Titu dress up as Men in Black and call themselves 'Terminator'
 
Music of the film is good but there are way too many songs that an action-comedy requires and they prove deterrent to the flow. 
 
Cinematography is decent and Ranbir's delivery makes average dialogues stand out. Screenplay is slow as the action sequences take forever to get over. 
 
The film completely looses grip in the climax and the editing could have been crispier. 
 
As an action-comedy, the film works, however, it's not a complete package as it lacks on the romance and emotional quotient. 
 
Watch it only for Ranbir.
