Storyline

Bantu and Chantu are two close friends and fellow collegians in an Arts & Science College in Bombay, India. Both are up to no good practical pranks and jokes, including conning their college-mates for money. Both prove that they can do anything for money and an easy lifestyle. In order to continue living a easy and comfortable lifestyle, both decide to marry wealthy girls, namely Rani and Sheena. In order to get close to them they steal identities from two females, Rose Mary Marlowe and Reshma Chowdhury, disguise themselves as females, get admitted in a Girls' hostel and start their romance with their future-brides. But fate has other plans for these two pals, as the women they are impersonating have been killed just a day after the duo assumed their identities. Their plans dashed to the ground, the hapless duo must now find a way out of this mess - that is before the police catch up to them. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

EXCUSE ME? NANNI.
26 May 2003 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Well, I came into this film knowing nothing of Baliwood so needless to say, I was quite surprised. The movie follows the madcap exploits of 2 college guys known as the singular entity, "Chantu-Bantu." In this three-plus hour long farce, Chantu-Bantu do everything from dressing in drag to sneak into a girls' dorm to tricking a girl to go out with one of their friends by making her believe he's dying of AIDS.

Combine a ton of these strange, litte, almost episodic plotlines with a few zany, wildly cheoreographed, music videos, some random action scenes, bright colors, bad clothing, and a little obvious homo-eroticism, and you have an incredibly entertaining film-- that is if you have three-plus hours to kill. I recommend watching it over the course of like 3 days.
