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

  • Baazaar may not capture the breathlessness of the volatile stock market, but it does present an interesting dynamic between mentor and mentee set in a familiar Mumbai milieu.

  • Baazaar doesn't have characters - just caricatures. Every plot point of the film is an extended open-mic joke that refuses to land.

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

  • What it is is forgettable. Saif Ali Khan is the best thing about this ordinary film.

    Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • An interesting bunch of actors in an uninteresting, uninvolving film.

    Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
