The introduction scene of the two players in Baazaar – Shakun Kothari and Rizvan Ahmed – shows the stark contrast yet familiar characteristics of the guide-mentor duo. While Rizvan is from small-town Allahabad with big dreams, Shakun is a ruthless businessman, you don’t want to mess with. While one wants to get to the top, the other does everything in his power to stay on top. Baazaar is an ode to the classic Hollywood-esque stock market films with a desi twist attached and the first half is as fast-based as the stock market. 

The story is set in Mumbai, the city of dreams and revolves around Rizvan (Rohan Mehra), an aspirant with dreams as high and elitist as his guide, Shakun (Saif Ali Khan). Shakun thinks of himself as Batman, a good guy who takes any means necessary to get what he wants. The first half of Baazaar is Rizvan’s rise in the stock market scene and towards the interval, we see the highly anticipated first meet between Ahmed and Kothari. 

Saif Ali Khan proves yet again that with a tight script and an eccentric badass character, the actor can do wonders. As the menacing Gujarati businessman, Saif adds 50 shades of grey to Shakun and makes you love to hate him. On the other hand, we have debutant Rohan Mehra, whose earnest attempt is applaudable and for a first attempt, the actor does a good job. Radhika Apte plays Priya Rai, a seasoned broker who takes a liking for Rizvan and as per usual, Radhika is bold, beautiful and adds charms to a character, in spite of the limited screen time. Chitrangda Singh plays Mandira Kothari, Shakun’s trophy wife and investment and her equation with Saif of an incredibly troubled marriage is shown with crisp subtlety.

It’s the editing by Maahir Zaveri and Arjun Srivastava that deserves a special mention. Between breaking the fourth wall, without it being forceful to going back and forth between Ahmed and Shakun’s individual storylines is a masterclass in editing, done right! Gauravv K. Chawla’s direction and Nikkhil Advani, Parveez Sheikh and Aseem Arora’s screenplay are inspired by the Wolf of Wall Street’s of the world, but from the first five minutes, you are hooked to the story.

The first half was just the precursor of what to expect when the guide and his protege become bitter rivals in the second half; something that is inevitable to happen. When it comes to the Baazaar stock, the first half has been profitable in every way.
