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

Hrithik Roshan was approached for the role of Bunty. However, recalling the disastrous Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002), he put a condition that he would do the film if it was directed by either Yash Chopra or Aditya Chopra. Abhishek Bachchan was approached next and he accepted the role. See more »

Surprisingly good Indian comedy
18 June 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

When I think of comedy in bollywood, I think of Govinda, who I detest. Fortunately for me, Abhishek and Rani were the stars of this light hearted and fun film. The first 20-30 minutes of the movie are a bit slow and could have been constructed better to develop the characters. However, after the brief introduction to each, the audience is quickly taken on a ride with the duo, Bunty and Babli, as they travel from city to city cheating people out of their money. Abhishek does a terrific job as Bunty and of course Rani is perfect as his accomplice, Babli. The film has enough laughs to last through to the very end. Even Amitabh, the veteran Indian actor, is comedic in his role as the police officer chasing the two. Aishwarya's dance number was a pleasant addition to the film. Some of the songs seemed to drag on for one too many minutes. In short, Bunty Aur Babli is a refreshing and fun experience worth watching.
