Movie Verdict

Babli Bouncer starts interestingly with the introduction of the main characters and their life in the village. Movie has some comic scenes in first half that will make us forget the time and start enjoying the movie. But the length of the movie disturbs the flow, as we need to watch a lot of stretched scenes in the movie to establish the characters and the situations around them. Story point of a woman working as a bouncer in the club looks interesting and few scenes in the later half are good. But the movie falls low in the second half with more and more stretched scenes and drama. Climax of the movie ends on an emotional note that will make us think.

While it comes to acting, Tamannaah Bhatia was fantastic in the role of Babli. Though the actress looks artificial in some scenes, she has managed to bring the best of her performance in emotional and few other scenes from the movie. The dialect she used for her character also looks perfect. Saurabh Shukla is decent in the role and looks natural in every scene. Shahil Vaid did a decent performance as Kukku and evoked few laughs. Karan Singh as Mannu is okay with few scenes, but need to improve a lot more as an actor. All other actors did their part well as required for the story.

Technically Babli Bouncer movie is good. Songs and background music composed by Karan Malhotra & Tanishk Bagchi is decent. Frames set by Himman Dhamija looks colorful and the scenes shot in the village captures some beautiful landscapes. Editing of the film could have been more crisp as length of the film might affect the experience of the viewer. Production values are good as required for the story.

Director Madhur Bhandarkar, who is known for his making style and presentation of the characters, handled this movie to some extent in his mark. But few scenes makes think, if this movie is really directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, as they look overly dramatic and stretched.

Overall, Babli Bouncer is a watchable journey of a lady bouncer with some good performances and making. You can stream this beautiful drama on Hotstar right away.
