The verdict for Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Besharam’ is out. Critics had already given it a thumbs-down by giving it a 1-star rating and slammed the film as one of Ranbir’s worst films. Not to sound like a Ranbir Kapoor fan, seeing the promos I felt that Ranbir was playing the character may be a bit loud or the script was a big letdown. But, I guess Ranbir is too smart an actor to let go-off a turkey like this without scrutinizing it and which surely bounce back in a bigger way with big films lined up for 2014.
But the promos had ensured of ‘Besharam’ taking a huge opening which it did and collected almost 40 crores by the weekend making it a break-even proposition. Surely it wasn’t a washout as most trade pundits would believe. Potentially, the satellite rights will be sold shortly and may be by next month will become a premier show on one of the top channels for viewing and finally qualify as an average grosser, worldwide.
