Storyline

Main Hoon, Main Hoon, Main Hoon Con!
23 January 2012 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Team-BBB (Band Bajaa Baraat) clearly had an advantage with their first outing. Yashraj films were at its lowest ebb which translated the expectations to sub-zero. When the winning combo decided to strike again, the sky-high expectations ended up working against it.

What works?

Ѻ Well written conning portions. Bollywood has generally witnessed scarcity in on this genre, Mr. Sampat and Mr. Natwarlal in the past and Bluffmaster and Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! in the recent come to my mind.

Ѻ Ranveer Singh - Undoubtedly he is the one who has what it takes to carry the mantle forward.

Ѻ Anushka Sharma - Seamless performance. A word of advice to the leading ladies of 90's who are toying the idea of returning from sabbatical. You quit when you were ahead of the game, so stay put. Watch her and you will know why.

Ѻ Parineeta Chopra - A surprise package. This dark horse nearly stole the thunder from Anushka Sharma.

Ѻ Choreography on a few select songs.

Ѻ Authentic supporting characters.

Let downs.

Ѻ The mushy-mushy YRF ingredient. Seriously, the plot had enough potential to steer for a better finale otherwise.

Ѻ The spicy ingredients which went missing in the second-half.

Ѻ The grand conning act appears to be long drawn.

Verdict: A definite one-time watch material. And looking forward to the next outing from Team-BBB!
