Bittoo Boss Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand  Site:IBNLive (CNN IBN)

It’s unfortunate that the same surefootedness that debutant director Supavitra Babul shows in setting up the narrative, disintegrates into a trite, preachy affair in the second half. The tone shifts when the plot twist is introduced – humiliated by the girl he likes ) for his simple ambitions and modest means, Bittoo takes the drastic decision to shoot pornographic videos toarn big bucks; he arrives in Shimla to secretly film honeymooning couples in hotel rooms. Bittoo Boss is an enjoyable enough ride until it goes off-track.I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for Bittoo Boss. The film tosses around some interesting ideas, but can’t seem to make them work as a perfect whole.

BITTOO BOSS has a fascinating premise, it appears bona fide as well, but not all concepts expand into entrancing fares. One anticipates a skillfully textured rom-com with flesh-and-blood characters, but what one gets to watch are caricatures. The slipup lies in its incoherent and erratic screenplay: the conflict doesn’t work, the love story lacks fizz and the drama lacks the power to influence you. BITTOO BOSS is a clear case of unfulfilled promises. In the recent past, most debutant directors have had the courage to charter an innovative pathway. One expects the story and the execution of the written material to leave an indelible impression, but director Supavitra Babul doesn’t get it right. Sure, the plot has potential, but the writing is lopsided and tedious and what makes it worse is the indolent tempo at which the plot unfurls.On the whole, BITTOO BOSS is a good opportunity lost.

Debutant director Babul had an interesting premise to start with, but after the first half, the script is more scattered than sorted. Some caricaturish characters, dialogues with local tadka, and few laughable moments save the day. At a time when s** and ‘dirty pictures’ sell, Babul scripts a hero who describes s** as ‘dilon ka milan.’ Ho-hum!.This one had the potential to be an entertainer, but turns out to be a ‘bit-too’ much

Supavitra Babul’s directorial debut Bittoo Boss, however, trying far too hard to be the next Band Baaja Baaraat, is a mostly amateurish effort which seems like relatively harmless fun before it turns sloppy. Leading man Pulkit Samrat brings some shaggy sincerity to the proceedings but is mostly surrounded by folks who can’t act, and a sluggish, inexplicably banal plot.A sweet but slapdash effort, this is, all in all, quite like watching a wedding video. Just not shot by someone with as much panache as Bittoo. And a shaadi video — one without folks you care about — always, invariably feels groanfully long.

The sheer relief of watching a gifted new actor play, for a change, a good hearted, idealistic hero who sets off to make blue films and ends up sorting out problems between couples, is enough to make us not wince at the jagged edges which stick out here, there and everywhere in the narration.Bittoo Boss is filled with some genuinely endearing moments where the protagonist comes close to losing his stubborn values but retrieves them just in time.This film is an uneven but likeable experience held together by the debutant Pulkit’s performance. He’s undoubtedly a star in the making.

So why should you watch Bittoo Boss? You can see it’s made with love. The intention is honest and debutant director Supavitra Babul’s vision of an entertainer (under parental guidance) comes through.The real fun begins when Bittoo takes to making ‘billu fillums’ in a Shimla guesthouse. Even though the film wanders, with the first and second half almost disconnected, it is an earnest attempt. When it’s not trying too hard to impress, Bittoo Boss is worth at least a onetime watch

BITTOO BOSS is interesting in the first few reels. The energy thrown in by debutant actor Pulkit Samrat, who plays the protagonist, is noteworthy. The film relies heavily on Pulkit, and even though the lad makes an honest attempt he is not able to pull off the film. Though the sincerity of the makers is seen, the product per say is not packaged well enough to woo the masses.A good first half but a poor post-interval session.

What’s Good: A few cute portions of the drama; Pulkit Samrat’s earnest performance.What’s Bad:The script which meanders mindlessly; the slow pace of the drama; the lack of heart-touching emotions.Verdict: Bittoo Boss is a half-baked fare at best. It will do ordinary business at the box-office.Loo break: A couple, especially in the climax.Watch or Not?: Watch Bittoo Boss if you want to see a debut making director’s honest effort. But do not expect to be entertained a lot.

If the trailers had made you wonder that this would be the next ‘Band Baaja Baarat’, you were grossly mistaken. And so were most other people. Amita Pathak and Pulkit Sharma barely make it to the cut. And ‘Bittoo Boss’ falls flat on its face, tepid and lacklustre.The film barely manages to hold interest, and apart from a few smart-alec, innuendo-laced songs, the others are just unnecessary. With a heavy dose of your average Bollywood clichés and below-average performances, ‘Bittoo Boss’ doesn’t entertain. It is a few precious hours of your life wasted. Invest them in something worthwhile!
