Baazaar spins around Rizwan (Rohan Mehra), a highly ambitious small-town stockbroker from Allahabad and his ideal Shakun Kothari who is double ambitious than Rizwan and believes in minting money by hook or by crook. With the ambition to reach Shakun one day, Rizwan starts working with Kishore Wadhwa (Denzil Smith) where he meets Priya Rai (Radhika Apte) and the duo gets into a relationship. After a series of events, finally, the moment comes when Rizwan gets face to face with his ideal Shakun and the duo kicks of a bond, which takes an unpredictable turn as the story progresses.
Screenplay and Dialogues
Penned by the trio, Nikhil Advani, Parveez Sheikh, and Aseem Arora, the first half of the film takes you through the insights of stock-market, the greed of a business tycoon and towering ambitions of a small-town lad. However, the second half fails in some instances to hold the expectations built up by the former. The element of thrill diminishes by abrupt songs and some other narrative flaws.
Dialogues of Bazaar are sharp and offers a perfect support to bring out what exactly a character wants to convey. A thumbs up for the dialogue writer.
Helmed by Gauravv K Chawla, Baazaar describes the passionate money makers with a depth which we have not witnessed before in Bollywood films. A world which has never been a forte of B-Town storytellers. Gauravv gets full marks for taking the thrill element in the first half higher which he could maintain even in the second, but we blame the script for that.
