Rangeela (Warsi) and Guddu (Amit Sadh) are two small-time criminals, who wander in and around Haryana.
Due to some sudden incidents, they would urgently be in need of money and reluctantly take on a kidnapping assignment, which is to kidnap a deaf and dumb girl. Regarding the assignment, the two crooks land in Shimla. Upon inquiry, they realize that it is that deaf girl, baby (Aditi Rao Hydari) who has mastered the plan.
Explaining the reason, she says that, she had to do it for blackmailing her brother-in-law Billu Pahalwan (Ronit Roy), who has killed her sister. In later scenes, it would even be revealed that the brother in law has killed Guddu’s father and Rangeela’s wife too. The rest of the story is how Guddu and Rangeela plans to attack the girl’s brother in law and fulfills the task.
The first half of the film is all about revealing the nature of the characters, and few comedy scenes. The film would make the audience wait for the actual revealing of the story for long and finally gives a clue at the interval. On the whole, the first half is fun filled, though logicless.
The second half has a lot to do with the film. Though the back to back twists appear clumsy in the beginning, the solution for all those will be found at the end. Even then too many twists might confuse the audience. The humor would mostly be at the SMS level.
Example: Guddu asks Baby “Degi?” and “Legi?, a trend that was initiated by Chetan Bhagat.
On the whole, keeping the twists aside, the fun is carried well in the second half too.
Amit Sadh and Warsi as Guddu and Rangeela have opened up well and gave their career best performances. Their comedy timing entertains the audience perfectly. The perfection, they showed might awaken the sequels of Guddu Rangeela with the same combination again.
On the other hand, Aditya Rao Hydari has really got a very challenged character to act as a deaf girl. It is a really tough one for any youngster to accept this kind of role, but Aditya managed to give a super performance. Ronit Roy as Billu Pahalwan appeared as a perfect baddie. The other characters have done a proper justice to their roles.
The story is a revenge drama. Though there is no such fresh formula in it, the screenplay and the comedy timing make the script unique. But still it literally takes the path of the past Bollywood flicks like Ishaqzaade, Boss and NH10. The picturization of the songs elevates the music more. The narration was concentrated mainly on maintaining the fun throughout the film and so misses a proper logic in many scenes. Director Subhash Kapoor was successful in bringing out a regualr revenge drama by applying the fun masala.
Fun has no logic. If you believe in this statement, Guddu Rangeela can perfectly entertain you.
