Chaman Bahaar is all about seeking redemption in old-style romantic stories from our youth. It’s a very light-hearted romantic comedy set to delight you at every corner of the film. Here we go with the review of performances in the film.
Story of Chaman Bahaar
Set in a remote village in Chattisgarh, Jitendra Kumar wants to create a name of his own and leave an impact. He quits the Forest Guard job due to fear of wild animals and opens a small roadside Paan shop to sell out Cigarettes, Paan, Gutka etc. A new law divides the district and leaves him without customers when a family shifts to a house right opposite his shop.
The school-going girl in the family becomes the talk of the town as every man ends up at Jitendra’s store following her. His shop starts running well. But, Jitendra has feelings for the girl too. Who will earn the love here? Will Jitendra’s feelings be rewarded?
The story is a refreshing tale of many ups and downs in Jitendra’s life. And, is a class apart as a romantic web-film.
Actors’ Performances in Chaman Bahaar
Jitendra Kumar leading the pack of the star cast has been flawless throughout the film. He acts as a lost and disoriented soul trying to make a place for himself. His rolling up of eyes, variety of expressions he oozes out, has all been praiseworthy.
Another notable performance was by Alam Khan. The Kota Factory fame effectively plays the role of a local politician. The role of Rinku, family’s daugter, played by Ritika Badiani looks refreshing and beautiful. Though, she doesn’t have any dialogues in the whole film but she has played herself very well.
All other actors have been very good too and deserve appreciation for doing justice to the story of Chaman Bahaar.
Screenplay, Background Score & Direction
Screenplay is tight and to the point. Screen-space doesn’t seem to have been wasted anywhere and is very well utilized.
Background music is very good and keeps one’s interest across all scenes. The music is rustic and reminds of the Indian Ocean’s Music. The music is interesting and off beat.
And, direction by Apurva Dhar Badgaiyann is exceptional. She has been good at plotting and executing them with near-perfection.
The film deserves 7 out of 10 stars.
