True Bollywood style.....
1 August 2006 | by mehta-nishankSee all my reviews

Bunty aur Babli has all the ingredients of a blockbuster - impressive starcast, novel story, mind-blowing music, sizzling on-screen chemistry and to top it all, an item song that is well set to be a nation's new anthem.

After a successful debut with Vivek Oberoi-Rani Mukherjee starrer Saathiya, Shaad Ali is back with yet another great movie. Of course, it may disappoint all those craving for Hollywood-like cinema (Black, Page 3 , etc.) - Bunty aur Babli is 100% Indian - textbook Bollywood style. So, you have Abhishek Bachan and Rani Mukherjee playing two ambitious, fortune-seeking small-town youngsters, who run away from their families to make it big in bad Mumbai. The duo turn into formidable con-pair thus inviting upon themselves the wrath of a UP-bhaiyya type cop (Amitabh Bachan). The film's initial half is much like a roller-coaster ride while it is the later half that involves the Big B chasing the masquerading duo. Finally, the product is a movie providing wholesome family entertainment in typical Bollywood flavour. The ending may appear a bit damp, but all-in-all its a movie worth seeing.

ACTING: Abhishek Bachan is fast growing out of his illustrious father's shadow and carving a niche for himself. AB is fantastic in the film as the trickster Bunty. Rani Mukherjee on the other hand is fast rising to be the next 'actress of an era' after Madhuri Dixit. she is turning out to be the industry's biggest goldminer with a string of 5 recent successes already to her name. After a serious role in Black, Rani enthralls all by another great performance in a contrary role. The Big B as usual stamps the film with his quality and it is quite useless to praise him here. And last but far from the least is Aishwarya Rai.............it can only be Ash who can floor the audience and leave her mark on a film featuring three of Bollywood's biggest names in a role comprising just of a 7-minute item song. The gorgeous body, the heaving breasts, the backless choli, the tempting face ,the hypnotising eyes and of course the drooling dance moves - Ash is at her irresistible best in Kajra Re.

Special mention for Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's fabulous music, delivering what should be the best musical blockbuster of the year. Each song of the soundtrack is innovative and is destined to be a hit.
