Bad Reviews For Lip-locks!

Bad Reviews For Lip-locks!

Filmmaker Aditya Chopra, who has directed only three films: Dilwale Dulhanaiya Le Jayenge (DDLJ), Mohabbatein (2000) and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) - all starring Shah Rukh Khan and attaining cult status for being the true celebrations of romance and family bonding, when announced his fourth directorial, Befikre, it was expected to be yet another film belonging to his trademark success formula.

However, Chopra startled everyone not once but in a progressive manner by unveiling the film's first look posters, all having the lead actors gleefully locking lips in various postures. Later came out the 'Labon Ka Karobar' song from the film, which had not the lead actors but every possible pair on the streets of Paris locking lips.

Chopra must have thought that he was breaking the stereotypes and making a true-blue romance saga of a carefree couple of this new generation. His idea was endorsed by a section, surprisingly CBFC too by sparing more forty lip-locks uncut, but the trailer and promotional material was largely branded vulgar by Indian movie lovers.

Now, when the film hit screens this Friday, the film has been receiving scathing reviews and crappy word of mouth. The film is being criticized for its vulgarity in the disguise of coming-of-age romance. On top of all those uncountable lip-locks, without real chemistry, the film also has Ranveer Singh showing his naked avatar from the back.

It was always going to be tough for Befikre at box office after it managed to collect severe backlash for it's over the top presentation of romance.
