Watch Beeba Boys - Alternative Versions.
Splashy, colourful and loud as a tie-dyed turban, Beeba Boys is an
arranged marriage between a Bollywood drama and Reservoir Dogs, with
the match made by Tom Ford. Sadly, however, this is not one of those
weddings where love blossoms over time and the couple bonds into one
The film is loosely inspired by the brief life of Vancouver Indo-
Canadian gangster Bindy Johal. In filmmaker Deepa Mehta's version,
however, the protagonist is an overcooked caricature of Johal's media
Jeet Johar, played by Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda, is no longer a
street thug trying to secure a piece of the local drug trade typical
of the vast majority of Vancouver's real-life disorganised street level
Indo gangsters. This bogeyman is the established head of a sinister
group of snazzily-dressed goons whose operation is as well-oiled as
their looks. Meet the Beeba Boys (beeba being a maternal term of
endearment meaning 'good boy'), with Johar as the established Kingpin
don of this Hell's Kitchen.
Mehta's Jeet is a homicidal maniac with limited emotional range. He
broods, threatens people, broods some more, gets angry and shoots
someone, and then broods some more. He is a human automaton
ironically his son in the movie compares him to Megatron who somehow
happens to be the head of a sophisticated drug operation, though we
never learn how Jeet becomes the Scarface of Vancouver. We see less of
Jeet actually running his business than dressing up to run his
This flimsy treatment of the protagonist twins poorly with a plot that
seems templated, and disjointed in its formulaic shifts. It feels like
Mehta is checking boxes trying to get all the ingredients into this
recipe: gangster threatening rival, gangster going to jail, gangster in
court, gangster courting his moll, all stirred together with a couple
of cultural scenes, and voila the soufflé. The pieces do not sum to a
whole greater than its parts.
Particularly weak is the vapid relationship between Jeet and his love
interest, Katja (Sarah Allen). It is the classic trope of the innocent
girl falling for the bad boy. But Mehta's treatment is lazy, even
hinting at a mild case of Jungle Fever. Chance circumstance tosses
Katja within pheromone-sniffing distance of Jeet Johar and suddenly its
mating season in Beeba-land. With little else between them, we are
expected to invest in their explosive connection. It is the epitome of
hyperbole: hyper-masculine Jeet doesn't court women as much as he
summons them to his bed. The relationship drags through the movie more
as a distraction, eventually sopping with Bollywood-style melodrama to
fill the void left by the lack of chemistry.
Hooda's searing on-screen presence and his few scenes of emotional
authenticity salvage his character but in the end, the screenplay
renders him as flat-footed as Katja, without the bounce in his legs to
take us anywhere beyond the designer-upholstered basement of his
parent's house where he lives and runs his gang of Beeba's.
Period pieces and culturally specific underworld movies benefit from
narration, take for example City of God (set in Brazil's favelas) or
Goodfellas (Italian mafia in NYC). The viewer is given the context to
follow the storyline and to know why any of this is worth watching.
Utilising this device in Beeba Boys would have helped frame scenes for
viewers unfamiliar with Sikh cultural references.
A prime example is a macabre wedding sequence featuring a dead groom at
the start of the film. There is dancing, singing, and a general
big-fat-Indian-wedding celebration centred around a blue-faced corpse.
It feels straight from a Tarantino playbook nobody is alarmed, not
even the children when the dead man topples over. Is this the Beeba
Boy's way of pouring out a 40-ouncer of malt liquor to mark the death
of a comrade or has Mehta planted a hook for a sequel, Beeba Boys II,
the zombie thriller?
Over her twenty plus years of film-making Deepa Mehta has made a
significant contributions to Canadian and South Asian cinema which has
firmly embedded her as an icon in the Canadian canon of film. She is as
good a filmmaker as any in the South Asian genre. Given the right
script, she is capable of producing resonating, finely textured
features like Earth.
Beeba Boys is her first crack at gangster noir, a rare genre in
Canadian cinema. Unfortunately the film resorts to 'gangsta bombast'
instead of treating the subject matter with more respect. There is a
story worthy of exploring in the life of Vancouver's real life beeba
boys who enter the drug trade. They are typically 2nd generation young
men from stable middle class families. Many have college educations.
Yet they are lost and seem to enter this world seeking direction. Too
many over 150 in the last 20 years leave it only once they are lost
The film provides little insight into why Vancouver should be the
grounds for the rise of the Indo-Canadian gangster as opposed to
Toronto, New York, or other cities with significant Sikh populations.
If religion is the root cause, as Mehta's film seems to suggest at
times, it still does not explain the disparity in violence between
different population centres.
Given its specialised focus, the film will find viewers upon general
release, and the trailers will surely create an impression. But like
the young Indo-Canadian men who have died in Vancouver's drug trade,
Beeba Boys lives too fast to leave much impression.
