Here is a hilarious movie that follows a pair of devious misfits that are out for the ultimate goal: success! Rakesh and Vimmi are looking for life beyond their small town, and they hope that their parents would be able to understand their needs. Rakesh despises a bland ticket counter job that his own father occupies, and searches for a quick money scheme that will land him instant success. Vimmi is opposed to marriage with a stranger, and dreams of becoming a supermodel. The two decide to leave home in search of those dreams, but reality gives them a rude awakening. As their dreams fall short, they are ready to accept defeat. Then, the two meet in a train station and decide to give success another shot. As this also fails, the two embark on a crazy, cunning adventure of ?cleaning? and ?scheming? to get money. One escapade right after another, the two begin to fall in love and are set with a vast decision that will lead them to accept that this quick-money plan will end soon. As a lonely policeman follows their trails, the two are running out of places to run and hide. Great cast- Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukherjee, and Amitabh Bachchan. Great performance by Aishwarya Rai. Filled with tons of laughter! Definitely worthy!

This is all the colourful, giddy fun you expect from a bollywood movie without as much of the wince worthy overacting I happen to love. The characters have back story, clear motivations and overwhelming charm. You end up loving everyone; the heros and their quirky relationship, the 'villian' and his brooding, even the side characters leave you wanting to jump the next flight to India. The film is polished, glossy perfectly paced and well thought out.
This is a good comedy to ease your non-bollywood fan into.

Aishwarya Rai was in it for one song, so don't go watching it for her. It was okay, the songs were a little iffy at times, some were okay though. The story was at least good, a little far fetched, especially the ending, but it was at least entertaining.

Rani and Abhishek make a great pair in this comedy. The songs are catchy and Amitabh is a cranky old cop. i love it.

Good performances by both leads:Abhishek Bachchan & Rani Mukherjee but Aishwarya Rai steals the show with her show-stopping item number 'Kajra re'.

So hilarious! I love it! Especially love how Bunty is played by the Amitabh Bachchan's (the police officer intent on catching them) son!

One of the songs/dances on this show is called kaja re (I think that's how you spell it; it's Hindi)Anyways...you can watch it on you tube. It's way awesome!

It's a really fun Bollywood movie that keeps you entertained one way or another. It's equal parts comedy, drama, and adventure. I think it's one of the better one's I've seen for sure. Good performances and engaging story make this one worthwhile.

Overall this movie is just about average . Some scenes are really humorous like Rani and Abhishek meeting at the rail station. Rani as usual sizzles and Abhi gives a fairly OK performance.Amitabh is not in his element except for the dance sequence "kajrare". Somewhat his performance can be termed as overacting. This man ( Amitabh ) is overworked and his age shows. He is burning at both ends. It is high time he slows down a bit. And now the piece de resistance of the movie : That is the music. The music is very good and all the songs are quite hummable. The music is quite experimental and unique.The story is plagiarized from a number of Hollywood movies, chief of which is "Catch me if you can". The plot is not detailed enough . For example the way the duo ( Rani and Abhi )dupe their victims , seems childish and there are many gaps in their schemes. 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.All in all a passable fare..

A good example of action comedy in indian cinema which will make you laugh from time to time.

A strong performance by Rani Mukherji is the highlight of the film, the plot is brilliantly concocted; add a few masala item numbers to the soup, and you get what might be the perfect Bollywood stew.

"A real roller coaster Adventure with all the bits a Bollywood movie should have. The cast was like a true icing on the cake. The review will be useless without mentioning the 100 star chemistry of Abhishek and Rani. Only one thing to say for Amitabh Bachchan, ' God Tusi Great Ho...'"
