Bunty Aur Babli 2 movie review: Rani Mukerji-Saif Ali Khan join forces with Siddhant Chaturvedi-Sharvari for an immensely entertaining old-meets-new world sequel
Bunty Aur Babli may not have been one of Bollywood's slickest, sexiest or most meticulously planned heist movies in the vein of say Don 2, Dhoom 2, Special 26, Aankhen or Kaante, but it sure as hell was damn entertaining and had a simple charm to it that not only connected big time with the audience back then, but also has kept the movie popular over the years through several successful TV reruns. Now, when a sequel arrives 16 years later, there's obviously going to be some trepidation about the time lapsed and will the makers and cast be able to recreate the innocuous fun of your in a contemporary setting. Well, he good news is that Bunty Aud Babli 2, starring Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and debutante Sharvari, is a total hoot, matchings its predecessor toe-to-toe for sheet entertainment.
What's it about
While the old Bunty Aur Babli, Vimmi (Rani Mukerji) and Rakesh Trivedi (Saif Ali Khan), have settled down in an honest life of domesticity, with a kid et al, their past catches up with them when two new con-artists, also posing as Bunty Aur Babli (Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari) start pulling off cons with the same MO albeit with the aid of modern technology, leaving the trademark signature at the end to boot. With the cops clueless about the identity of the looters, after suspecting the old B&B, it's up to the old pros to spring back in action and take it upon themselves to nab their clones.
