Storyline

Rakesh{Abhishek Bachchan} and Vimmi{Rani Mukherji} are two ambitious wannabes from small towns where their dreams are written off as outrageous daydreaming. They run away from their homes when bump into each other and decide to con for once to be financially sound until they make it big. Ironically, they find it too exciting. One follows the another as they adopt fake names [Bunty and Babli] for the same and they soon become the most popular anonymous criminals of the nation. At the heart of it kicks off their romance and they decide to continue their newly-found 'talent' as their means of living. Little do they know that their shenanigans have caught the fancy of ACP Dashrath Singh {Amitabh Bachchan} big time. He leaves no stone unturned in putting them behind the bars. Meanwhile, Rakesh and Vimmi have a child and decide to quit conning for their child's sake. However, its only then when Dashrath Singh manages to get their grab. But he release them after initial incredulity about ... Written by B.H.Harsh

Trivia

Due to violations of Supreme Court laws, which state that no vehicles or smoke/polluting devices are to come within 500 meters of the Taj Mahal (on 11 December), by the unit of Shaad Ali, the director of the film, the District Magistrate and Senior Superintendent of the Police of Agra, have been issued notices by the civil judge (junior division) Shahid Raza. The court issued the notices based on the plea of social workers Subhash Dhal, Jagdish Varma and Rajnish Gupta. On the said date, the unit used black smoke devices, generator sets within 200 meters of the Taj and even brought vehicles within the same distance and despite being brought to the notice of the district administration, no action was taken to sort the matter or stop the shooting.

didn't like it
17 June 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

After watching Saathiya (Shaad's first direction), I had high expectations from this movie. But he proved that it was Mani Ratnam's magic (Alayai Payuthe, Saathiya's original tamil version) which helped in the success of Saathiya.

If you are a die hard fan of Abhishek and Rani, then probably you can see the movie, but as a package, the movie falls flat. The cons are not properly developed and senior B adds to downhill of the movie. Actually I am getting sick of Sr B watching him in every other movie (though eagerly waiting for Verma's Sarkar). Aishwarya item song actually takes you to the heights of boredom.

I must say Abhishek and Rani are superb and they make a good on screen pair (after Yuva). Only if Shaad Ali had worked little hard on the movie, we could have had 'Catch me If You Can' of bollywood.
