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

Yet another time-pass flick from Bollywood
5 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

For those who have not seen the original (and I suspect there are a lot of them in India) this is a copy of 'Matchstick Men' starring Nicholas Cage, Sam Rockwell and Alison Lohman.

The story is about Roy (even the central character is identical as if they're giving us a hint!) who cons everyone until he takes a protégé, played here by Ritesh Desmukh. When Roy learns of his life-threatening brain tumor (how convenient for the scriptwriter!), he decides to pull off the last "big one" by conning hotelier Chandru (Nana Patekar). What happens next is what happens with every other B-movie. So don't hold your breath.

Bollywood's gotten so brazen and shameless at copying it is appalling. Recently, Bunty Aur Babli was copied from Bonnie and Clyde, Dansh is a copy of Death and the Maiden, Kante was a mish-mash of Reservoir Dogs/ Usual Suspects, and on and on and on. And that Bhansali idiot never did acknowledge the credits for his Black, nor obtained the rights. After that miserable piece of crock, he's been 'Black'-listed as yet another bogus, B-grade Bollywood wannabe.

Boy, when and where will these third-rate thieves stop??? This is worse than Chinese piracy where they just sell copies of the original but not try to re-invent it! At least you can try to enforce copyright laws if only as deterrent. How do you stop these so-called "slight adaptations" and "loosely based ons" Indian filmmakers are getting away with??
