Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Chitrangda Singh starring Baazaar finally get a release date after a long delay. The movie will hit the cinema halls on 26th October, confirms the maker of the film.
Baazaar is an upcoming crime-thriller film directed by Gauravv K. Chawla, written by Nikkhil Advani, Aseem Arora and Parveez Sheikh. The film is set in the backdrop of money, power and business, largely based on the Stock market.
It’s not that this film copies that alarmingly dynamic one, but rather that this director is so obviously seduced by visions of great films about the stock market, that he rushes — eagerly and without preparation — onto the filmmaking floor to try and join the legends.
“Greed is good.” What the classic line from Oliver Stone’s Wall Street doesn’t spell out is how compelling a storyteller needs to be to make greed look good.
Film critic and analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, “Saif Ali Khan, Chitrangda Singh and Radhika Apte. Introducing Rohan Mehra [son of Vinod Mehra]… #Baazaar release date finalised: 27 April 2018… Directed by Gauravv K Chawla… Produced by Emmay Entertainment and KYTA Productions.”

The market manipulation and stock skulduggery in Baazaar is childish, but that doesn’t stop Chawla borrowing from masterworks like The Big Short. There is a reason the guy breaking the fourth wall in that film was the incomparably dashing Ryan Gosling. With Mehra, the flatness hurts. Chhokra dull chhe. There are many problems with the mediocre Baazaar, but the primary issue is intent, because it appears Chawla didn’t truly attempt to tell a story. He’s a director who tried Wolf.
