Along with Shahid Kapoor, BGMC stars ABCD 2 actress Shraddha Kapoor and Divyendu Sharma in pivotal characters in the movie. The story of the movie revolves around three friends; Sushil Kumar aka SK being portrayed by Shahid Kapoor, Lalita Nautiyal aka Nauti being portrayed by Shraddha Kapoor and lastly, Divyendu Sharma who plays the role of Sundar Mohan Tripathi. Set in a small town of Uttrakhand, BGMC’s first half deals with the plotting of the characters and the evolution of a love-triangle between SK, Nauti and Sundar.
Although, Nauti (Shraddha Kapoor) is yet not clear about her intentions for both. It won’t be wrong to say that the first-half of the movie is slightly confusing and elongated. It is the second-half where things begin making sense in the Shree Narayan Singh’s directorial.
In the second half, Sundar Mohan aka Divyendu sets up a factory and starts getting irregular electricity bill which completely depresses him. Sundar decides on taking help from friend, SK but he denies helping on account of a personal-issue (Nauti aka Shraddha) with Sundar. After being harassed by the local electricity department, Sundar finally decides on ending his life i.e., suicide which changes everything.
As expected, Nauti holds SK responsible for Sundar’s death and SK is left completely guilt-ridden. What follows is a legal court case being fought by SK against the state for murdering his childhood friend, Sundar Mohan Tripathi. Every actor including Shahid Kapoor has done their best in portraying the characters on-screen. However, Shahid’s energy is inevitable in each and every frame of the movie.
Light humor, good intent and bold topics have already been used in hits like Chup Chupke and Jolly LLB which is a major reason why this technique fails terribly in BGMC. Besides the lazy editing and confusing plot, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is surely worth a watch (Especially, if you are a fan of Shahid Kapoor).
As per the final verdict, we will like to award this movie 7 out of 10 stars which is majorly because of the apt social-issue being raised in the movie.
