Bangistan Reviews and Ratings
Bangistan races through with a nice tempo, only to be brought to an abrupt halt with its highly predictable, and ‘heroic’ (read Bollywood-ised) climax. Still, it’s left with a lot of watchable and well thought-out moments. Bangistan deserves applause for its message-oriented content.
Despite the dry choice of subject, Bangistan makes valiant attempts to keep the humour alive during its two-hour running time.
The characters of Riteish and Pulkit, who do not have a single mean bone in their bodies, are convincing as the Dumb and Dumber combo; blundering bumpkins who are a misfit on a terror journey.
The film could have gone a notch or two higher, if Pulkit Samrat had gone slow on his histrionics and perhaps a tad more steady handed execution by the debut director. The script and screenplay deserved a better film.
Go , laugh a while at the engaging antics of our two suicide bomber heroes. They are a riot. No pun intended.
