Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl

ladiesvsrickybahlAfter a year’s wait, we have the sizzling onscreen/off screen couple, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma together in this Yash Raj’s rom com.

Ranveer Singh plays a charming con man who dupes ladies of their money. Operating under different names (Sunny, Deven Shah, Iqbal, Vikram Thapar), he charms ladies, wins their confidence and then runs off with their money. Three such conned girls (Dimple, Raina Parulekar, Saira Rashid) then get together and decide to reverse the tables on him. They hatch a plan to con the “thug” and get their money back. They hire a sales girl, Ishika (Anushka Sharma) to become the face of their con.

The movie is funny and entertaining till Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma meet. It’s surprising that the hit Jodie of 2010 lacks the chemistry and completely fizzles out. Ranveer has given a good performance; he looks good and acts well. Anushka Sharma is anorexic and totally forgettable.  If she becomes any thinner she will be unnoticeable too in some time. But the surprise package is Parineeta Chopra, cousin of Priyanka Chopra. She has given a stellar performance as a typical Delhi punju bimbette.

A nice paisa vasool movie.
