But anyway the viewer can take all this in his stride, for after all this is a Bollywood movie and they are notoriously not meant to be perfect in their plots. With: With: Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Amitabh Bachchan, Kiran Joneja Sippy, Puneet Issar, Raj Babbar, Prem Chopra, Rameshwari, Pratima Kazmi, Aishwarya Rai. Rakesh Trivedi lives in a small village. The film's other musical numbers are not as memorable - and sometimes downright tacky - though it's hard to say whether they are meant to be taken seriously. Trusting their instincts, both decide to con a local man into giving them the money they needed to go to mumbai. They bump into each other at a train station and become friends after realising their stories are similar. He did, for instance, 16 movies in 1984 to only Bunty Aur Babli in 2005.
Amitabh Bachchan is in over-drive. The narration by Bachchan, the father and his eventual, inevitable appearance as the world-weary cop chasing these carefree, con kids is worth the wait. It picks up tempo as 'Bunty' and 'Babli' meet and embark on their modus operandi, but quickly loses out on account of a string of forgettable songs and sloppy editing. I have never seen her sexier yet. The item number with Aishwarya Rai is practically forced into the screenplay with a pair of pliers, and could also have been removed. They desire the horizon itself. Figure the rest - no surprises.
Rani Mukherjee is in the movie, in rural-kurtas with the deepest neck I have ever seen. B n B is one of them for sure. I went to see this film expecting some terrible cinema, but I was surprised, it was actually quite enjoyable! The sheer exuberance of the characters as well as the actors is one of the main selling points of this film. I hope to see more of Shaad movies in years to come and wish him best of luck. Nevertheless, it was a hit at the box office and the Rani + Abhishek show proved to still hold heat.
As well as the really annoying wannabe gangster music that was played every time he entered, he disappointed me with a terrible performance. It was bad experience, especially while having The Big B himself around. Of course, the whole thing is a bit of fluff from beginning to end, and anyone who expects more, should leave as soon the first energetic musical number hits the screen. As a result, he accepts this as a challenge and vows to catch them at any cost. The two take the aliases of Bunty and Babli, pulling off scam after scam against the rich. Two free souls born into caged small town realities. With the release of films like Black, Hazaaron Kwaishein Aisi, Raincoat and now even Bunty Aur Babli you can't help but appreciate the effort, even if the results vary.
He looks very suave, cool and mischievous, and does an acceptable job as Bunty. But by making some foreigner walking around in India, with millions of dollars in his bag and Deputy Commissioner of Police dancing around in Clubs made it a total senseless movie. Let me preface my comments with this disclaimer, I am a nonIndian. They meet and he convinces her to reach Mumbai and become rich. Bunty Aur Babli is a movie showing romance, and comedy, mixed with an adventurous story.
However, its only then when Dashrath Singh manages to get their grab. When two ambitious dreamers and schemers from a pair of dead-end towns meet up, girl and boy team Bunty and Babli is unleashed on the world, giving rise to a series of increasingly wild and wacky capers. Even Amitabh, the veteran Indian actor, is comedic in his role as the police officer chasing the two. Performance wise Rani Mukherjee is absolutely awesome. The ending may appear a bit damp, but all-in-all its a movie worth seeing. In short, Bunty Aur Babli is a refreshing and fun experience worth watching.
What excells in the entire film are the fabulous dialogues and that too delivered with good timing. A considerable improvement over his trivial 2002 debut, this vibrant, rollicking and often absurd film is first-rate mindless entertainment. He adamantly refuses any notion that he will one day work in a 9-to-5 environment. Just when you think you've laughed all you could, Amitabh makes sure his rapping skills leave your eyes watering! Each of the adventures of Bunty and Babli are thoroughly Indianised, like the fake selling of the. Rani's vivacious attitude, her colorful Kurtis, the plan to lease out the Taj Mahal, and the encounters between Amitabh and Abhishek, Rani's Punjabi accent and Amitabh Bachchan's dialog delivery are great.
After a serious role in Black, Rani enthralls all by another great performance in a contrary role. The music is quite experimental and unique. These activities put the names into newspapers across the country. The matter of Indian Bonnie and Clyde who love being famous, with Amitabh Bachchan chasing them then ends up forgiving them could have made a good heist, thriller, musical comedy, with sentimental side indeed. Some scenes are really humorous like Rani and Abhishek meeting at the rail station. Meet-cute yarn about two rural wannabes who team up as grifters en route to the big city, benefits from the natural chemistry between Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan. If one watches the movie closely, one sees traces of Maniratnam- the mist and the melody, the suspense, the vacuums felt at a lonely railway station with the smoke accompanying the restlessness.
