Bholaa Review & Ratings | Hit Or Flop?

Bholaa Review: The Hindi film industry is still unsure of which film will appeal to the audience and continues to rely on remakes and sequels of past blockbusters. Only “Pathaan” and “Tu Jhootha Main Makkaar” out of all the Hindi films released this year entertained audiences in theaters. Actor Ajay Devgn has now come up with another remake movie “Bholaa.” Let’s examine this remake of a big Tamil film in depth to determine if Ajay was successful in making it appealing to Hindi-language moviegoers.

Few movies made in regional languages become huge hits, but when they are remade in other languages, they fail because they don’t connect with audiences from other areas. The movie “Kaithi,” which was made in Tamil and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, has characters and a style that look more like they belong there. Ajay Devgn made a lot of changes to this movie to make it seem like it was for everyone, but in the end, those changes took away the movie’s soul.

Bholaa is an official remake of “Kaithi,” but the way it plays out makes us wonder if it really is a copy of the first movie. The plot of this movie has been changed in many ways that don’t make sense, and Ajay Devgn’s love song has been added. The movie has lost its heart and looks like a parody of the original. Even though the story was mostly the same, Ajay Devgn added a few new characters to this version. “Bholaa” doesn’t have any of the excitement that the original movie did.

When it comes to acting, Ajay Devgn is as good as ever in the role of Bholaa. Tabu played Diana Joseph, which was a meaty role, and she showed again how good an actress she is. Amala Paul and Abhishek Bachchan has limited screen time and has nothing much to do. Sanjay Mishra entertains with his dialogues and performance. All of the other actors did their parts well and in the way that was right for their roles.

In a way, Bholaa looks fine. Music composed by Ravi Basrur is decent, but the background score sounds loud in few scenes. One of the best things about GBCT is that it was shot by Aseem Bajaj. VFX looks very unnatural and it feels like there is no need of releasing this movie in 3D. Action scenes are over the top and have nothing to do with real life. The quality of the work is good.

Ajay Devgn is not only a great actor, but also a great director. His previous movies have shown how good he is at making movies, but Bholaa doesn’t have the same impact as his other movies.

Overall, Bholaa is not a very good version of “Kaithi,” but some scenes look good.

Plus Points:

  • Cinematography
  • Tabu

Minus Points:

  • Unwanted additions
  • Over the top action scenes
  • Poor VFX

Rating: 2.75/5
