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

Abhishek Bachchan-Yeh Dil Maange More!
2 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bluff Master is a fantastic piece of cinema with just the right amount of emotions, drama, comedy, thrill and about Abhishek Bachchan…yeh dil maange more! The star has finally become the actor with this film! When Abhishek started with his career, he seemed to have teething problems because of the mammoth surname attached to his name. Not only did his screen presence improved tremendously with each and every film, he has also let go off any inhibitions he might have suffered from when he began. If Yuva was the film, which brought him the critical acclaim and Bunty Aur Babli and Sarkar had moments where the son outshone the father, Bluff Master is definitely the film, where Abhishek comes of his own! Produced by Ramesh Sippy (Sholay, Seeta Aur Geeta, Shaan, Saagar, Shakti), Bluff Master is a brilliant piece of writing by Shridhar Raghavan, who is also credited with stories of films like Apharan and Khakee. The editing is razor edged by Amitabh Shukla and never loses its pace. Cinematography by Himman Dhamija is gripping and catches the right hues and colors of what is needed of a comic thriller like Bluff Master. Full marks to director Rohan Sippy (Debut-Dhai Akshar Prem Ke) for his dedication, passion and focus to make a product, which is not just good in few areas but excels in totality. Sippy's hard work shows in not letting the structure of the story fall apart like a pack of cards like the film made on a similar subject- Bunty Aur Babli. The plot is interesting and the climax keeps you on the edge of your seat guessing. The audio cd of the film may not be a collector's item but songs go well as audio- visual pieces choreographed with much punch and fervor in the film. The rap song ' Right Here Right Now' sung by Abhishek Bachchan rocks! The background score does justice to the screenplay. The costumes are carefully designed keeping the profile of each character. Talking of characters, the writer seems to have put extra time and efforts in shaping the characters, whether primary or secondary. The film has quite a few interesting con jobs, which do not strike as odd and on the contrary lends realism to the film and an instant identification with its characters. The dialogues are not rhetoric, and carefully mouthed, again to affirm the honesty with which the film is made. Associating people from different classes with different types of fish was refreshing and innovative work in dialogue writing. There is no unnecessary brooding over Roy (Abhishek) who is a professional at bluffing people as to why and what circumstances led him to join this line, neither does he let himself go ballistic over a vainglory accomplishment he achieves as a bluff master. There is a thin line between a con artist and a bluff master. Roy is a cool dude Bluff Master, lives in a swanky apartment and drives a chic car. Actors Ritesh Deshmukh, Boman Irani, Nana Patekar and Priyanka Chopra did full justice with their roles. The film is well crafted, and distinguishes itself from a buffoonery or slapstick, and is rather a sensible comedy that provides a much- needed comic relief, after absolute nonsense and trash films like Shaadi No. 1, Garam Masala and Home Delivery. Story: Roy (Abhishek Bachchan) is a professional conman, who has raised his work to the level of an art. He loves Simmi (Priyanka Chopra) who is unaware of his dark side. When his past catches up with him, she cannot forgive him for the deceit their relationship is built on and dumps him. That's when Dittu (Ritesh Deshmukh) enters his life. Dittu takes Roy as his mentor and wants to learn the tricks of the trade from him. As circumstances take turn, Roy must do one single most important thing in his life, which is to help Dittu get revenge from Chandru (Nana Patekar). What happens when the Bluff Master who wears so many masks is left with no alternative but to take them all off and finally reveal his real self? Watch Bluff Master to find out!
