'Be-Careful' is pretty much a case study in proving once again that there are still some producers (in this case Amrit Dujari, Raju Bhati and Ritesh Choradia) who are willing to spend money on films like these which are a failure at the writing stage itself. It is pretty much obvious that the film was pretty much shot on a day by day basis due to lack of any real script in place.
Also, there is some solid reaffirmation that issues which the film's actresses (Tanisha Mukherjee, Kiran Rathod) shared during the making of 'Be-Careful' were actually quite true since there is no head or tale here. Films starts of as a story of two men (Rajneish Duggall, Zaid Shaikh) who are straying in their marriage (a very very very poor cloning of 'No Entry'), step in Bangkok for their share of 'mazaa' (the word which is thrust upon audience 25 times in first 30 minutes) and from this point on do whatever they wish to, director/writer be damned.
It pretty much seems that once the entire crew reached Bangkok and it turned out to be a point of no return (well literally), the makers decided to just utilise whichever actor was left on the scene and shoot 'Be-Careful' with them. So at one point you see Tanisha and Kiran on the scene and another moment they simply disappear. Same holds good for 'bhaade ki biwi' which the two men get who disappear even before they could register their presence, only to return with '2 crore ka claim'. What a shame!
One can just continue to count at least dozen odd such instances where the film just meanders between one scene to another without any coherence whatsoever. There is some bizarre episode about a man called 'Lobo' (Johny Lever) who, other than making funny faces, starts walking around like a dead man. No explanation offered. Then there is Rajpal Yadav who keeps shuttling from being a Pandit to Cool Deuude (the way he pronounces it). Some 'Mujhse Shaadi Karogi' influence here!
Weird things keep happening as one moment Rajneish and Zaid want to flirt and another moment they wish to go back to their wives. In between the two of them there is Shilpi Sharma who does one (yes, exactly one. No I am serious) dance step right through a song that lasts close to five minutes and is titled 'Love Technology' (yes, you heard this one right too). And how could I forget Sanjay Mishra who tells Shilpi 'I want to rape you' not less than 10 times and feels that audience will collectively get into an uproarious laugh.
'Does Bollywood still make films like these anymore?' - This is what I started wondering 15 minutes into the film. Really, this has to be one of the most horrendous films to have been churned out of the Hindi film industry this year. In fact when it comes to referring to some of the most terrible attempts at filmmaking ever, this film by director Chandrakant Singh (who didn't quite earn any fame with either his debut film 'Rama Rama Kya Hai Dramaaa' or second outing 'Bin Bulaye Baarati') would be a fore runner for sure.
Rating: 1/2 (half) stars
