Director Ravi Jadhav's Bollywood movie Banjo, featuring Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri in the lead roles, has received positive reviews from the audience around the world.
Banjo is a musical action drama film and director Ravi Jadhav has written the script for the movie in collaboration with Kapil Sawant and Nikhil Mehrotra. The movie has been produced by Krishika Lulla under the banner of Eros International. Vishal-Shekhar have composed the music for its soundtracks and background score.
The story of Banjo is about an aspiring NRI musician (Nargis Fakhri), who is staying in New York. She reaches Mumbai is search of original sound and ends up with banjo artist Tarraat (Riteish Deshmukh), who is also an extortionist, street fighter and unsung instrumentalist. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
The audience say Banjo is a formulaic action drama about underprivileged musicians living in Mumbai slums. The plot of the movie has the potential to become a good mass entertainer, but the director has missed the chance with his clichéd and sluggish narration, which drags in parts.
Riteish Deshmukh has delivered a wonderful performance and is the main highlight of Banjo. Nargis Fakhri has good scope for performance and she has done justice to her role. Her chemistry with Riteish is another highlight of the movie. Dharmesh Yelande and others have done justice to their roles, which are assets for the film, say the audience.
Banjo has rich production values, and music and cinematography are big attractions on the technical front, add the film goers. We bring to you some viewers' verdict shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of Banjo movie review by audience:
