Aspiring stockbroker Rizwan Ahmed (Rohan Mehra) has just one dream – to work with businessman Shakun Kothari (Saif Ali Khan), who channels his inner Gordon Gecko and spouts lines like, ‘Haar aur jeet mein ek hi farak hota hai – bhookh and ‘Mujhe sirf profit mein interest hai’ – geddit?
Rizwan moves from Allahabad to Mumbai and, to secure the job, drinks a cup of coffee that his interviewer has spat in and asked him to sell. “Bech di, sir. Khud ko,” he says, slamming a 100 rupees note on the table. It works. Shakun takes him under his wing and introduces him to the high life, set to Honey Singh’s music. His boss (Radhika Apte) tells him just there’s one more thing he needs to do: Cross the line.
Shots of diamonds, police vans and Rizwan standing on the edge of a terrace indicate that things may not end well.
Directed by Gauravv K. Chawla, Baazaar will release in theatres on 26 October.
