There comes a time in the film where a character says, "Mujhe kuch samajh nahi aaraha," that's exactly what you feel for a major part of the film and given it's banality you give up on making any sense of the puerile film as well.

A renowned author Kabir wants to marry Rachna but he has to first impress her brother Laxmi Nivas. In order to do that he moves into his would be brother-in-law's house as a student. However, soon after Kabir's plans get busted but Laxmi decides to get the couple married anyway. Just when all's hunky dory Kabir's lookalike Rasiya Bihari strikes in and all goes haywire.

An apparent comedy of errors, Baat Bann Gayi is nothing but a trashy rehash of the comedy films that ruled the cinema during the '80s and '90s. It worked back then but sadly in the present times, this film neither falls in the category of boastful slapstick genre nor in witty comedy.

While the story in the first half is a direct Chupke Chupke rip off, the second takes a Duplicate turn. In between you also get glimpses of Golmaal, Bawarchi or any David Dhawan film of the '90s. In a typical Priyadarshan manner, the climax gets pointlessly complicated with mix-ups and goof-ups.

Although director Shuja Ali fails in putting together a good film, he scores in the casting department which alone is the saving grace. Ali Faizal as both Kabir and Rasiya Bihari is brilliant and commendably brings out a stark contrast between both characters.

Gulshan Grover too puts up a decent show but gets mired by bad character-sketch. His character Debu Daruwala is shoddily written and gets increasingly annoying. Both Amrita Raichand and Anisa do nothing but ham throughout the film.

Baat Bann Gayi is an insipid attempt at comedy. It is neither innovative nor funny.
