Audience v/s Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl


What better way to (re) start blogging than writing a movie review? My blogging career started with a movie review. It (re)starts with a movie review again.

Hmmm, now lets focus on LRB. What can you expect from a movie full of ‘Sharmas’? (4 Sharmas- Anushka Sharma, Dipannita Sharma, Aditi Sharma and director Maneesh Sharma and one to-be Sharma… yeah I expect Ranveer to change his name).

Frankly I loved Parineeti Chopra’s character Dimple Chadhha. And this new girl has done full justice to her role. She ads some flavor to otherwise drab movie that revolves around one conman Ranveer (Ricky B) who has duped 15 females and is still at large. Invariably none of them ever complained to Police (god knows why). But some thing happens (apparently directed by Sharma No. 1 Maneesh) and 3 of the 15 con women come together to script an indelible con against the invincible eternal conman.

Enter Sharma No. 2, (Dipannita) a full of attitude corporate secy and the mastermind of the whole con, Sharma No. 3, (Aditi) a certain coy Saira Rashid from Lucknow and the effervescent Dimple Chadhha (Parineeti Chopra). The script the con, trace their target with some intelligent analysis and then decide to attack. But how? So enter Sharma No. 4, Anushka as Ishika Desai. They decide to use her as a pawn to kill the king con. Rest, as they say, will be history in no time.

Movie is interesting in the first half. But sadly it just skids through in the second as against other movies which tend to drag. The three ladies come out as a winner, not only in the movie but also as performers. They, I guess, have the meatiest role despite the movie focusing solely on Ranveer.

The impressionist Raveer Singh is pleasing to the eye. But if I may compare, his con acts are no match to Dhoom 2‘s Hritik. Other wise, he is growing pretty well. I can already see a ‘Shah Rukh Khan‘ in the making. :-)

Anushka, on the other hand, is pathetic. Not her fault though, the role is such. I wonder what made her accept it. Ranveer love os Maneesh’s surname? All in all, the movie is a one time watch if you like light movies and love Ranveer or Anushka. Otherwise Ghost Protocol releases tomorrow and there is Don 2 coming up as well. And they are worth the wait!

  1. It’s been a while since I saw a real good Hindi movie…I regret having missed Buddha hoga tera Baap for some unpretentious entertainment by Bachchan … otherwise this year was filled with mediocre films like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and some self proclaimed master-pieces like Rock Star with mediocre actors like Ranbir Kapoor…. Dirty Picture was a pleasant surprise, obviously because of great performance by Vidya Balan

  2. I liked Singham for the same reason I would have liked Buddha Hoga tera Baap…. no tall claims… no pretenses … pure entertainment
