Babli Bouncer Movie Review: Story

The story opens with an action sequence where bouncer Babli Tanwar (Tamannaah Bhatia) is seen fighting with a few men to save a girl. She single-handedly almost beat all of them before getting hit on her head by one of them.

To make us understand the context the narrative takes us back to the story of 6 months ago. We found a Babli who has not passed 10th class and her mother Ganga(Supriya Shukla) is always trying to make her serious about cooking and household chores as she will be getting married in near future. Her father Gajanan Tanwar(Saurabh Shukla) is very much supportive of his daughter and always encourages her to do activities she prefers doing. 

Kukku(Sahid Vaid) who works as a bouncer in one of the bars in Delhi, likes Babli and always tries to impress her. She never took him seriously & considers him a friend only. When Babli met with her school teacher’s son Viraj (Abhishek Bajaj), she had a first-sight crush on him. She tried to impress him in various ways but being a modern guy Viraj who lives in Delhi has a different lifestyle. 

Babli convinces her parents to go for a bouncer’s job at the bar where Kukku works. She proposed to Viraj on his birthday and got rejected which left her heartbroken. The rest of the story revolves around her journey of how she learned her lesson to focus on her goal to become independent.

Babli Bouncer Movie Review: Performances & Analysis

Tamannaah Bhatia’s performance is the only good part about this Madhur Bhandarkar film and the only reason you can consider watching this movie on Disney+Hotstar. The first half was a bit slower and the poor writing may leave you disappointed. The second half comparatively looks better as the story progresses but the climax was very predictable.

The surprising fact is that Babli Bouncer is a Madhur Bhandarkar film. If you are unaware of his list of masterpieces, then you can check movies like Chandni Bar, Traffic Signal, Fashion, Page 3, Indu Sarkar, etc. I am sure after watching these movies; it will be hard for you too to believe he has come back after 5 years with a movie like Babli Bouncer. His movies are majorly women-centric and related to social issues & his last movie Indu Sarkar earned him the Best Director award at the prestigious Bollywood Festival Norway.

Abhishek Bajaj who is portraying a lead role for the first time after playing supporting roles in movies like Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Student of the Year 2, & The Coin, delivered a decent performance as Viraj. Madhur Bhandarkar did not focus much on developing the character of versatile actor Saurabh Shukla who could have delivered a far better performance than what he did here. Sahid Vaid, Sabyasachi Chakrabarty, and Supriya Shukla looked okay with their respective characters.

Babli Bouncer Movie Review: Final Words

Babli Bouncer solely depends on Tamannaah Bhatia’s performance, apart from that director Madhur Bhandarkar brings nothing special with his comeback movie.
