Bewakoofiyaan ★★★½

such a fascinating and strange mix - she says she buys her clothes at zara, but it's all designer stuff costing hundreds...having you cake and eating it too, but here the cake(?) is a romantic comedy of economic desperation in the wake of recession, the loss of self that occurs when you lose your job and haven't realized how much of "you" that job has become.

ayushman is the perfect avatar of the hindi romantic comedy (a genre built on lies or deception), a beautiful man with a beautiful voice who can nonetheless suggest a depth of anger or despair or self hatred all without resorting to the expressive surface of ranbir kapoor.
