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

It's alright.
11 February 2006 | by ChiBronSee all my reviews

The twist at the end lifted an ordinary movie for me to something slightly better then average.

Pros: A couple of performances. Ritesh stole the show despite being underused. This guy hasn't looked back since Masti and is easily one of the best comedians in Bollywood today. Nana in his typical style owns every scene he's a part of(especially the climax). It's good to see him do something a little different. The look of the film is very 'Bombay' and I thought it gelled in perfectly with the subject matter.

Cons: The Abhshek-Priyanka relationship didn't do it for me at all. They look good physically, but that's all there is to it. Abhishek's fixation with her is puzzling throughout the movie. In one scene he's talking to her abt not doing his thing anymore because he "loves" her, but we know that's a flat out lie. Makes AB's already confusing feelings for her look even weaker. His character in fact is very contradictory for the majority of the story. Tough to see his motivation for the stuff he does. AB Jr. gives a fairly good performance(if a bit dull), but I would prefer the leading character of any movie to have some likable traits and Roy doesn't really have 'em. This matters because the people AB's conning are GOOD guys, so why exactly should we like this guy or even root for him? He struck me as a real jerk.

Priyanka's acting is strictly OK and even her appearance isn't what we've come to expect from her. Boman Irani's character reminded me a little too much of some of his previous ones. He's good, but NOT My Wife's Murder or Munnabhai good.

Still, I would say BM is worth a dekho once for the novelty(Bolly "novelty", of course), a couple of very enjoyable performances and the great twist at the end. A lot of people have complained abt the slow pace in the middle but the story was good enough to keep my attention.
