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.
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
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.
I can slowly see Hindi films evolving and taking more chances with their content and characters, something it hasn't done in thirty years. 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. Bunty Aur Babli is in no way a breakthrough. It has its color, loud music and spoonfuls of melodrama like the thousands of Hindi films that preceded it. However, it also has a pair of anti-heroes as the leads; Bunty and Babli are lovable criminals that love crime. The sheer exuberance of the characters as well as the actors is one of the main selling points of this film. The music is likable, though the shooting of Chup Chup Ke looks exactly like that of the song "Saathiya" from Shaad Ali's previous film. It could have been removed. The item number with Aishwarya Rai is practically forced into the screenplay with a pair of pliers, and could also have been removed. The movie also unnecessarily milks a scene between Amitabh Bachchan and his son, Abhishek. The two get completely drunk and have a boring, drawn out conversation about love that may leave you squirming in your seat. What a waste. This was meant to be a mesmerizing scene, as it's their first time acting together, but it instead becomes a good time to take that bathroom break. However, those gripes are minor compared to the rest of the film. Abhishek Bachchan gives a good performance, and hams it up like a pro. Rani Mukherjee is further cementing her stature as one of the few true actors in commercial Hindi cinema. She handles the humor (check out her catty fight with a Miss India contestant) and the melodrama with ease. Amitabh Bachchan is a cool cat. All of it works well because no one is taking it too seriously. It's pure entertainment. All in all, I'm glad we're seeing popular films that shy away from the love triangles, characters that are too perfect to be human, and poor production values. Bunty Aur Babli falls into none of those traps. Yes, it falls into several others but it's still a step forward!
Bunty aur Babli goes in the 'good but not great' category. You can probably watch it once and even get entertained but thats about it. First, the three good things about this movie are : Abhishek Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan :D. Jokes apart, this movie is a perfect example of a great cast holding up a weak storyline. It starts of well with the one hummable song of the entire movie and pretty shots of North India. 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. 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. The songs, the 'item' number, the occasional sentimental scene between Rani and Abhishek are awful. Overall, a 6/10. The movie had the potential to be something great but I think the director lacks the insight and experience to achieve it.
