An entertaining movie, well acted and delivered
11 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie starts out very well, with the two dreamy-eyed, small town youngsters yearning to get out and live up their dreams in the big bad city. After that, the pace slowed down quite a bit as Big B's character is introduced. Some of the scenes appear to be forced. The plot itself seems to be based on either Matchstick Men, or Catch Me If You Can. The concept of the 'con' has been borrowed and the usual Bollywood elements added to it. The bar scene before the Aishwarya number has been dragged quite a bit. What truly pulled this one off is superb acting by Jr. B, Rani Mukherjee and the supporting cast, which is quite minimal in its appearance. One wonders if the director had a choice, or if someone was hogging footage (get it?). Both the parents are missing for quite a bit while B&B are romping it up. The reaction in the small town to B&B's exploits also could have been worth exploring but isn't shown.

Overall its an entertaining movie, the musical score is good except for one song. One should not watch it as a realistic movie, rather as a fun caper that oozes lots of small town charm. There are definitely shades of films made in the 70s, 80s and one feels the influence clearly. Not surprisingly, this has been a hit grossing 4 times its budgeted cost.
