Originally, Sanjay Dutt was to play Roy, Abhishek Bachchan was to play Dittu and Aishwarya Rai was to play Simmi. However, due to time constraints Abhishek got the role of Roy, and Priyanka Chopra and Ritesh Deshmukh was brought in to play Simmi and Dittu. However, the film, in its credits, thanks both Dutt and Rai. See more »

Bluffmaster is a delightful movie. The dialogues are crisp and far above average from Hindi film sentimentality. Abhishek Bachhan is a natural and I do believe that he is a far better actor than his very popular father. His Hindustani diction is leaps and bounds better than all the Khans combined. Nana Patekar is at his comic best as his sinister character belies the poet at heart. I was able to tolerate Priyanka Chopra in this movie, far better than the Barbie character she plays in Krrish. Boman Irani is funny.
I do believe that much of the film is a mish-mash of lifts from western films of the genre and even some of the dialogues are plagiarized. But the Hindustani play on metaphors and aphorisms is what makes this movie so very fun to watch. The English subtitles do little justice to the rich dialogue in Hindustani.
The songs are a wonderful blend of Hinglish.
