"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

BOMBAIRIYA - Confused as its title, this can only be seen for Radhika Apte and that too if you must. [TTP (To The Point) Review by Bobby Sing]

27 May, 2019 | Movie Reviews / 2019 Releases

The title appeared to be confusing yet interesting, indicating something novel tried in a film based upon the life in Mumbai or Bombay – the city having a character of its own. The film calmly begins introducing a number of characters and sup-plots depicting the happenings within a day or so but then goes on overdoing it in almost every department shattering the expectations.
As a result, after about 50 minutes of its less than two hours of duration, BOMBAIRIYA turns out be nothing more than a fruitless attempt that showed a great promise in its innovatively designed posters and a hopeful trailer. Revolving around the main plot of a young girl (Radhika Apte) losing her phone in a road mishap meeting two other characters, it could have been much better had they followed this very plot searching the phone without going into many more unimpressive sub-plots and all avoidable additions. Because putting in too much of everything soon creates a tiring, terrible mess that even wastes the spirited effort made by the talented Radhika along with Ravi Kissan, Siddhant Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi and more. 
In all, the first time director Pia Sukanya sadly spoils a great opportunity with an interesting cast also including Jim Sarbh and Adil Hussain almost doing nothing. The film desperately tries to present an entertaining chaos of several people and plots (including two forced Sikh characters), but in the process neither remains funny nor thrilling or engaging as a completely dead explosive.
So you can watch it for Radhika Apte alone as she is only saving grace in this otherwise worth skipping venture, but that too if you must as a fan.
Rating : 1 / 5

(Note : The film can now be seen at Netflix for a subscription)
