Movie Info

Rizwan Ahmed is tired of playing the small game. He dreams of being the King of Mumbai. Fighting his own doubts, Rizwan takes the leap and moves to Mumbai where he finds himself one step closer to his God, Shakun Kothari. Shakun Kothari is the King of the Stock Market. Starting out as an angadia in Surat he is now counted in the 0.01 % of the country's elite, rich businessmen. Baazaar is, at once, the story of Rizwan, the street-smart, dreamy-eyed small town boy who wants to make it big desperately and Shakun, the cold shark of the business world who wants everything. Both their worlds will collide, and this collision will create waves across the city, across the trading floors, across the political circles. And caught in this whirlwind will be: Mandira Kothari - Shakun's wife, a philanthropist, the daughter of his mentor and mother to his two daughters; Priya Rai - a head strong and ambitious stock market trader, fighting her own demons, Rizwan's colleague and love interest; Sandeep Doshi - high rolling businessman, Shakun's old friend and current enemy; Rana Dasgupta - sharp and alert, SEBI Chief, hot on the tracks of Shakun Kothari. Mumbai - the city of dreams. Brutal, fast, enormous. A city that pushes you. In or out. There's no in between; And finally, each and every one of you. "Main maths pehle karta hun, baat baad mein..." - Shakun Kothari

Critic Reviews for Baazaar

Forget any sort of playfulness. Greed is entrenched into the DNA of the filmmaking, too.

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.

The film's only trump cards are its actors. You have to give credit to Saif Ali Khan and Radhika Apte for playing such hollow and badly written roles with such conviction.

While the thriller set against the concrete jungle of Mumbai isn't particularly memorable, its lead player Kothari has a longer shelf-life. Watch this solely for Khan.

Baazaar uses plenty of stock market jargon and showcases complex ideas like insider trading and financial manipulation with ease. It's great to see an edgy story unfold in completely new settings in a Hindi film.
