Star Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Rohan Mehra, Radhika Apte, Chitrangda Singh
Movie Review: After a long time Saif Ali Khan is making a comeback on the silver screen with Bazaar. The film is arched around the stock market and the planning and plotting that takes place out there. The film also marks the debut of Rohan Mehra who essays the role of Rizwan Ahmed, an aspiring boy from Allahabad (now Prayag Raj) who idolizes Shukn (Saif Ali Khan), who is the wolf of the stock market. Shakun hails from Surat and is famous for his business acumen and skills to understand the stock market like no other. Radhika Apte plays the love interest of Rizwan.
The film begins with Rizwan dream of making it big in the stock market, he aspires to become like Shakun who is a famous name in the world of trading and the stock market. Shakun is shrewd, cunning and is able to turn things in his favour. Rizwan moves to Mumbai and gets an opportunity to work with Shakun. Bazaar revolves around the rise of Rizwan and how he deciphers the hidden secrets and politics that takes place in the stock market. Despite a strong storyline, the film is not able to strike a chord with the audiences. The second half of the film is more gripping than the first part. Saif Ali Khan looks perfect in the avatar of a shrewd businessman who is here to make money, he is good but not great. Rohan Mehra on other hand does justice to his role as a small-town boy. However, he lacks the charisma of a star. The bad thing is that the role of Radhika Apte has been limited to just glamour quotient. Chitrangda Singh who is seen as the on-screen wife of Saif Ali Khan has a miniscule role. The film is average, could have been more thrilling. The urban audience may find it interesting. It’s a one-time watch.
