A 'foolish' affair!

Romantic comedies always create excitement, especially if there is a big banner like YRF backing it. 

Ayushmann Khurrana, whose debut movie was a record breaker did not get lucky with his second movie 'Nautanki Saala', and all eyes are set to see if he succeeds this time or was he just a one movie wonder. 

Mohit (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a marketing professional making big money and is dating Myra (Sonam Kapoor) who works for a finance company. Just like any young couple, they too are leading an extravagant lifestyle and are busy swiping their credit cards at malls and hotels. 

While Myra is happy with Mohit, her father VK Sehgal (Rishi Kapoor) has plans to get her married to a big shot. Things get worse when Mohit gets fired while Myra has a successful career. 

Rishi Kapoor is incredible, he plays a nagging and nosy father brilliantly. In a few scenes he reminds you of Greg Focker. 

Ayushmann is definitely one of the most talented actors from the fresh crop and he fits perfectly into the role of a young reckless urban guy. The chemistry between Rishi Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana is the high point of the movie. 

Sonam Kapoor looks gorgeous and handles her role well. In fact, Myra is very similar to her, a reason why she looks so convincing. However, she needs to work on her voice which sounds squeaky. 

Nupur Ashtana who made her debut with 'Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge' sits in the director's chair for this romedy. While she manages to make many situations fun, she still could have made a better movie. 

Habib Faisal once again writes a novel story and makes it more pertaining to the current scenario where companies’ fire employees when hit by recession. 

However, the screenplay of the movie is slow and after a point it is predictable, especially the end. 

Editor Antara Lahiri has done a good job by keeping the length just right. Music by Raghu Dixit is boring, not even one track stands out which is very surprising as YRF is known for good music. 

BEWAKOOFIYAAN starts off well but ends up being a 'foolish' affair.

The movie won't be able to capture audience interest.
