B&B worth a "Look-See"

Let me preface my comments with this disclaimer, I am a nonIndian. Forgive my obvious ignorance and any misspellings, and proceed at your own risk. I rented B&B from Netflix because I've seen KHAKEE with Bachchan. the father and Ash Rai, plus KUCH NAA KAHE WITH Bachchan, the son and, again, Ash Rai. The father is obviously an national Indian treasure as a wonderful, serious actor. The son is clearly a gifted comedian and maturing, sensitive actor. Ash Rai? She's one of a kind too, and she clearly knows how to pick 'em in her leading men. By the way, Ajay Devron, her leading man in Straight From the Heart, Raincoat, and as that nefarious terrorist in KHAKEE, is another example of her very good taste in who appears opposite her on screen. B$B is delightful especially for Bachchan the son, who did great work here in various con man roles and in his interaction with his perky, little costar, Rani Munkerjee. 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. 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. Of course, it is just like every other American cops 'n robber spoof that I've ever seen; nobody really gets hurt. Now the surprise and joy for me was the so-called 'item number' in the bar with father, son, and their co-star from other recent movies, Ash Rai. The drunken banter (no, I don't speak Hindi and had to rely on the subtitles) and body language was very funny to me despite, or maybe because of, this obvious handicap. Their interactions with Ash prior to the dance number were perfectly timed comedy reactions too. The dance number itself ripped up the place and Ash looked as if she was having a lot of fun "flirting" with two of her favorite men. Now that's entertainment in my book, and in any language. Go rent B&B, or, even better, buy the DVD and add it to your Bollywood collection. That's what I'm doing right after I finish this review. Thanks to both Bachchans, Ms. Munkerjee and Rai for sharing their talents with all of us.

A joy ride.

Leave your rational back at home and when you come out of the theater you leave the place smiling. Shaad Ali did a marvelous job of capturing the beauty and essence of North India. The story is not a ground breaking one and have been used before but it is the treatment and screenplay which makes it so enjoyable. The movie has got it all groovy North Indian dance steps, dancing on the train selling of Taj Mahal. BAB is about two dreamers from small towns of UP Rakesh ( Abhishek Bachchan ) and Vimmi (Rani) who in the quest to fulfill their dreams elope from house and bump into each other. They both faces failure at the first stage so they both decide to twist things around and get into conning. To con they develop an alter -ego Bunty and Babli. from then they never face failure and their scams become a headache for the system.DCP Dashrath Singh Amitabh Bachchan takes the charge of catching B n B. SHaad ALi poured a lot of hard work to make BAB a treat to watch . His home work is obvious from many small points in the movie. THe opening scene of a Kite stuck in a TV antenna , the songs which are played in the background were just sheer right on the target. Songs like " CHalat Musafir " really captured the feel of North India. Using Taj Mahal as a backdrop for the marriage and their unconventional Vows were all brilliant. Performance wise Rani Mukherjee is absolutely awesome. The way she captured the emotions her get up and talking style of a young Punjabi girl was point perfect.Amitabh Bachchan's comedy is still the best my god what timing. Abhishek Bachchan has seriously grown up as an actor and he proves his point in BnB . Abhishek and Rani are a treat to watch and they were so lively on the screen it gets you into the moment. The bus scenes where Rakesh tells Vimmi about BNB is amazing then the scene on Mumabi CST station where they confess their love shows their on screen chemistry. SEL gives a good enough soundtrack with songs like "Dhadhak Dhadhak" and Chup Chup Ke the soundtrack of the movie is really worth listening. Aishwarya Rai looks amazing on screen and Amitabh and Abhishek were marvelous together. The Bar scene between Abhishek and Amitabh is all about brilliant timing of comedy. I loved the groovy dance steps of Kajrare. In times when movies like Kya Kool Hain Hum is making money BnB comes as a refreshing good taste comedy . 8/10

Surprisingly good Indian comedy

When I think of comedy in bollywood, I think of Govinda, who I detest. Fortunately for me, Abhishek and Rani were the stars of this light hearted and fun film. The first 20-30 minutes of the movie are a bit slow and could have been constructed better to develop the characters. However, after the brief introduction to each, the audience is quickly taken on a ride with the duo, Bunty and Babli, as they travel from city to city cheating people out of their money. Abhishek does a terrific job as Bunty and of course Rani is perfect as his accomplice, Babli. The film has enough laughs to last through to the very end. Even Amitabh, the veteran Indian actor, is comedic in his role as the police officer chasing the two. Aishwarya's dance number was a pleasant addition to the film. Some of the songs seemed to drag on for one too many minutes. In short, Bunty Aur Babli is a refreshing and fun experience worth watching.
