It is one of the best Gujarati movie I have seen so far!
Excellent direction. Story and script play all good.combination and great acting by each one.
I wathched this movie second time!!
It's unfortunate that most of the American audience will likely overlook Bey Yaar at first, but I strongly recommend watching this excellent film. With great performances from top to bottom, Bey Yaar is as much a telling coming-of-age film as it is a moving family drama and quietly exciting heist film (more on that later). The 150-minute running time appears off-putting, but it's filled well by some of the best editing and cinematography I've seen in Indian cinema. These two technical qualities result in something that's memorable and entertaining enough to watch multiple times. I sure have!
Still, the screenplay deserves credit as well. In Bey Yaar, two childhood friends try to get rich quick, which - as the film synopsis puts it - truly sets them on the wrong path. They essentially steal a lucrative painting belonging to the father of one of the friends, in order to loan it for cash. But they end up getting a taste of their own medicine when the person they sell it to is just as greedy, if not more. With the help of their other acquaintances, they plot to get the painting back, which makes the movie's second half play out like a heist film.
A lot of the twists and turns are somewhat ridiculous, but there's a quietly comedic element to much of it, and so it becomes apparent that the director, Abhishek Jain, isn't trying too hard to make you buy what he's selling. Moreover, the heart of the story is in how the two young main characters grow from their mistakes and redeem themselves for something far more valuable than money. It's carried well by both Gujarati actors, along with a strong supporting cast that includes a veteran actor whom viewers may notice if they've ever watched Disney's Million Dollar Arm...
With all that said, Bey Yaar also serves well as a suitable family movie, since there is practically nothing outlandish in the way of content. The only thing that should be mentioned is that within the latter half of the film, one of the characters is revealed to have a strange drug habit, but this minor subplot is played only for laughs and is not meant to be taken seriously. Viewers may also be amused when "Smoking is injurious to health" appears in small text in the corner onscreen during one of the film's early scenes. Kudos to whoever added that!
As of this review, you can rent Bey Yaar in Digital HD for $4, and purchasing the same format costs $8. For those curious, the DVD of Bey Yaar lies within Amazon's India site (amazon.in). Don't be mistaken that you're buying a cheap foreign film with only local appeal. Instead, you'll be treating yourself to a rare Gujarati film boasting great camerawork, great editing, and, more importantly, an entertaining script to tie it all together.
[UPDATE: November 25, 2015] Amazon shoppers should know that Bey Yaar is also available on iTunes and Google Play - both stores selling the movie (at the time of writing this) for purchase at $4.99 in Digital HD. If Amazon Instant Video isn't your preferred digital media store, then you have two other solid options available if you want to check this excellent film out.
It was my first Gujarati movie. Did not think it to be as funny as I was told by my friends.
