I remember when i first saw the pics of Ranbir , he looked exactly like Neetu Kapoor. Incidentally there is a dialogue in Besharam that also talks about it. Ranbir Kapoor, right from his debut in 2007s Saawariya has never been known for manly aspects. The feminine aspects in his personality could be seen in each of his films , with the exception of Rocket Singh.
In Besharam , it has realized its full potential. If gays were not satisfied by his towel dance in Saawariya, he has a nude shower scene in Besharam with his butt crack not even blurred and just like saawariya, there is no significance for that scene. There is a scene where his partner complains about Ranbir getting an erection every time he sleeps with him on the same bed. In the climax, Rishi tells him “take this gun , kam aayegi” to which Ranbir replies “mujhe iski zarorat nahi, mera kaam pyar se chalta hai” and no, this was not a comedy scene.
I have not seen Anjaana Anjaani but this is Ranbirs worst performance by a mile. Worse, this is his most feminine act. During JTHJ I had said Katrina has regressed to her Boom days, in Besharam Ranbir has regressed to his Saawariya days and undone whatever he had done post Saawariya. He is terribly exposed in just about every department – his hammy acting, outdated clothes, wig, intro dance and the fights.
Rishi and Neetu are equally hammy and irritating in their roles. The herione is the gf of Abhinav Kashyap which explains her casting, rest she is wooden and ugly. The only guy somewhat normal is Jaaved Jaffrey. The plot is about a car theft. That’s all. Yes and with half a dozen outdated songs. The film is titled Besharam but Ranbir is not even an unapologetic creep. Even that would have been more interesting than this. The 3 perverts in Grand Masti were far more Besharam than Ranbir. There are silly 80s and 90s style excuses thrown for his thefts. “ye dil ka acha aadmi hai” bcos he donates the money to anath ashram. I never thought Abhinav could make a career in film making after i saw Dabangg and this film reinforces it.
