"Adorably Nonsensical" - That's how I would label 'Banjo'. <br><br>Ritesh Deshmukh has carved a niche for himself - something his fellowMarathi manus must be proud of. It is rare that a Marathi (male) actorstrikes big in Hindi and he is perhaps the first since Amol Palekar(who of course was in a different league). Therefore, it was expectedthat some successful Marathi director (Ravi Jadhav in this case) woulddecide to make a 'pure masala' Hindi movie with Ritesh in the lead.Something like a Punjabi filmmaker making a Hindi film with JimmyShergill or a South Indian filmmaker with Dhanush. They are assured ofthe captive audience and anything more is a bonus! <br><br>As for the movie, it is typical OTT tamasha (nonsense) with twoadorable faces - both Ritesh Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri. Adorablebecause they have the sexy as well as the vulnerable look. Ritesh isdeveloping in the Jackie Shroff mould and Nargis can pull it off withminimal acting skills like Katrina. <br><br>As for the story and the music, don't expect this to be a serious movie(like Rockstar) on a musician's life travails due to its title. Rather,it is a movie confused between drama and comedy.
