Story: "BEY YAAR" features the story of Chako (Chintan) and Tiniyo (Tapan) and their friendship. They are two fast friends who wish to earn money via the easy and short route, sans too much hardwork. But things have never been easy that way, and soon they are in a soup. How they get out of it, learning from the bitter experiences is all what "BEY YAAR" is about.
Performances: The acting by all the actors is superb. As Chaka, Divyang Thakkar is once again in fine form after Kevi rite jaish. He is particularly good in the emotional scenes. I still feel though that a shaven look would suit his character better. (Lol)
His yaar Tiniyo is played by Pratik Gandhi and he is perfect. With some flawless acting and a cute face, he is too good. However, the veteran actors steal the show. As the bad guy, Manoj Joshi is simply brilliant. This is a role he sleepwalks through. But he does even that with elegance. It is a pleasure to watch this versatile actor act.
But the star of the film is Darshan Jariwala. As Chaka's father, he is simply outstanding. Be his comic timing in the alcohol scene or his emotional outburst just prior to the interval, he is mindblowing. This film wouldn't have been the same without him.
Amit Mistry as Prabodh Gupta / Pranav is another flawless show. He is smooth, hilarious and perfectly cast.
Kavin Dave as the 3rd yaar is awesome. As the narrator, he is perfectly cast and a crucial character in the movie.
Direction: Direction by Abhishek Jain is pitch perfect. He directs every scene like its the last scene he is going to direct. No words can describe his direction in this movie.
Music: Sachin – Jigar's debut Gujarati outing is just superb. With just four songs, they still play a huge huge role in making the movie so good. All 4 songs are perfectly placed, appearing apt and never out of place. There is no unnecessary song, and the 2 versions of the title song stay with you long after the movie has ended. The background score of the film is another major plus point. It is very well done.
The last word: To sum up, "BEY YAAR" is a fantastic movie. It once again proves to the entire film industry that Gujarati films are not to be taken lightly. It is well made, has a solid story, has some great acting and music, and is thoroughly entertaining. It shows friendship the way it happens in Gujarat. It shows family life the way it happens in Gujarat. In short, it is something everyone can relate to. It had me longing to go on a bike ride with my best friend and click a SELFIE.
Take a Bow guys!!!
