Storyline

Roy is leading a dual life . His girlfriend Simi believes he is an honest person while the reality is quite different. Roy is actually a professional conman who dupes innocent people as easily as he swats flies. When Simi comes to know of the reality, she is heartbroken and ditches Roy for ever. Roy repents but it seems like it's too late now. One day Roy bumps into Aditya "Dittu" Shrivastav who is an amateur conman. Dittu implores Roy to teach him the tricks of his trade, but Roy disagrees. One night, Roy collapses while crossing a road and visits Dr. Bhalerao for a medical checkup. It is revealed that Roy has a brain tumour and has very little time. He bumps into Dittu again and this time he agrees to take Dittu under his wing and teach him the basics of the art of conning. Together they zero in on a big "fish" - a shady hotel owner named Chandru and proceed to lure him into their master plan. Written by Soumitra

True romance relived-Celebrate Bollywood!!
23 December 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mumbai…cut to the size of the silver screen, an assortment of picture postcard shots, a lively score, and an able characterization is what makes this one of the most outstanding products this year. Oh ya, I know you are gonna say I missed the story. But frankly dear, I don't give a damn! All I know is that when I go see a movie, I should see the effort and the mindset and vision of the director right there on the huge screen in front of me, nothing else matters. From the first frame to the last, the movie exudes style, and not self-righteous style, an ingrained effortless style. I was in for this fare anyways even it would have been bad, but I was pleasantly surprised by the narrative, its more of a celebration of bollywood for me, bollywood of the seventies-the numerous references to the cinema of the yore celebrated in a universal way, which is so pleasing to the eyes the heart and the mind. A protagonist with multi-layered character, an able-skilled assistant, a merciless love interest and a lovable villain makes up this joyride-roller-coaster of a bolly-revelation-magic.
