Rohan Mehra: Debutant Rohan Mehra is pretty good too. The young actor shows ease and control in his very first performance.
Saif Ali Khan: Saif Ali Khan as a suave, shrewd, but typical Gujarati guy is the best thing about the film. His twang and his good-looks create the perfect air for the character. Saif’s natural finesse adds to the role, but the actor really shines through in the many shades of grey.
Radhika Apte: She is very good in the role of a young and competitive stockbroker.
Story: Rizwan Ahmed leaves Allahabad behind and with it, the small-town mentality, too. He moves to Mumbai, a city with soaring skyscrapers and dreams that fly even higher. His one wish is to work with his idol Shakun Kothari, but the greedy and manipulative world of money, power and the stock market draw Rizwan in, a little too fast.
Direction: Director Gauravv K Chawla manages to create a gripping atmosphere for the most part of the runtime.
Baazaar: 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. The movie has a lot of hustle and power play from the world of industrialists, politicians and money brokers, and that makes for a smart investment, especially for movie buffs.
