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

Desi version of Bonnie and Clyde + Catch Me if You Can + other Film Nior from Hollywood
12 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not really sure why I am still giving it 3 stars. I spent my valuable $s to watch this movie in theater and believe me I was really upset (IMDB would not let me write prohibited words...WTF) to watch it. Just figured out that the story wasn't even original and is mostly based on B&C. And, still, the guy claims that the story was his concept? Are Bollywood directors so impudent? Or just admit that we lack originality and creativity in our film industry.

A couple of other movies that come to mind that have been copied include Aamir (copy of some Columbian movie), Life in Metro (certain segment taken scene-to-scene from The Apartment) and Ek Chhoti Si Love Story (A Short Story About Love). All the non-Desi counterparts of these movies are excellent.
