Aisa koi saga nahi, jisko thaga nahi

Ye world hain na world, isme mein do tarah ke log hote hain, ek jo blog likhte hain aur doosre wo jo blog padhte hain
ye main nahi, ye wo dono kehte the.. aur kehte kya the, karte the.. aur aisa karte the jaisa na kisine kiya, na shayad koi kar payega

This year's first musical starts promisingly enough with a song which introduces Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee as youthful and energetic with big dreams and almost no means to achieve them. Imaginative choreography, peppy beats and nifty camerawork make it a treat to the eyes and prepares you for an engrossing time ahead.

After the excellent and critically acclaimed Saathiya, Shaad Ali returns to present a light-hearted, immensely entertaining offering that turns quite a few movie making norms on the head while showcasing the new India's willingness to enjoy stories with the lead characters being on the wrong side of the law and not being apologetic about it at all.

Bunty aka Rakesh Trivedi, son of a Train Ticket Collector stays with his parents in Fursatganj and cooks up impractical schemes to become rich and famous while installing a shower on the roof of his home when the water pressure is so low that everyone in the area has to go to a community tap to get water. He has to go for an interview the next day to become a Ticket Collector like his dad.

Babli aka Vimmo, a Sikh girl with dreams of making it big and destroying quite a few clothes in the process, lives in Panaki Nagar and is about to be married off.

With things not quite to their liking, they run off to Lucknow and met at the station after their plans were thwarted in the city. Shaad Ali even managed to shift the Harcourt Butler Technical Institute (HBTI) from its original location in Kanpur to Lucknow. What was the need for doing so remains beyond me. And since when did selections for the Miss India contest start being held in Engineering Colleges (HBTI) ?

A hilarious sequence at the Lucknow station later, they decide to move to Kanpur to try their luck and start off on a series of joint exploits,all over UP,my favorite being the one where they rent out the Taj Mahal to an American businessman for his wedding for $250 Million, that eventually leads them to Mumbai where they run afoul of the eccentric, delightfully Bihari-accented Hindi speaking DCP Dasrath Singh (Amitabh Bachchan) who vows to catch the duo.

What ensues is a montage of sequences that are hugely entertraining and left me a bit afraid that the ending will perforce have to be rather tame because of the compulsary need to bring everything to a logical conclusion. That the ending came as a rather pleasant surprise is ample testimony to the amount of thought put into this courageous labour of love.

The dialogues are really well written with sparkling fresh humor strewn around liberally. A few scenes stand out for their spontaneity.

Amitabh Bachchan is drunk on free drinks provided by a hotel owner on the occassion of selling his hotel to Bunti and Babli (B&B) and is trying to indulge in some shayari. Here is the masterpiece.
mat pila sharaab muft mein...
mat pila sharaab muft mein...
mat pila sharaab muft mein...
hotel kaise chalega !

Another scene in the same hotel has Bunti asking the bar tender for a drink and then asking him to put Whisky, Vodka, Gin and Rum in the same drink prompting Amitabh, who is nursing his own drink at the bar, to ask
kyun miyan, chaand pe jaana hai ?
Bunti retorts
kyun, aap ticket bech rahe hain?

On way to Mumbai, Babli gets nostalgic about her home and starts sobbing. Bunti asks her to sit down for some time and get the memories done with. She takes a bit longer than he expects and he gets irritated and asks
tum jara jaldi nahi kar sakti?
Babli replies
kar rahi hoon na.. yaad aa rahi hai, bathroom nahi..

Abhishek Bachchan's directors are usually unable to resist the temptation to mention his link with Allahabad, and Shaad Ali proves to be no exception.
Amitabh:Kahan ke ho ?
Abhishek:Allahabad.
Amitabh:Shakal se hee dikhte ho.

Amitabh and Abhishek's chemistry on-screen is fabulous to watch. Special mention has to made of the peppy Qawwali Kajrare Kajrare, sung amazingly well by Alisha Chinoy. This was Aishwarya Rai's much vaunted 'item' song and frankly I was not impressed. I could not help wishing it was Sushmita Sen doing it. But what brought the house down was Amitabh and Abhishek's dual act attempting to seduce the damsel. Amitabh defies his age and conventional norms to dance with gay abandon and shows he can still shake a mean leg. Abhishek,never known for his dancing, tries hard to keep up, coached well by Shiamak Davar, and manages to put up a decent show. My favorite actor of this generation keeps getting better.

Which brings us to Rani Mukherjee. Arguably the best actress in a past few years, she proves yet again that she can deliver the goods. With rumours about her romance with Abhishek flying thick and fast, fuelled by their steamy show in Yuva, she is probably the only mainstream Hindi actress to have kissed an actor (Abhishek in Yuva and Bunti & Babli) and his father (Amitabh in Black). Would be pretty embarassing if she gets married to Abhishek and then the Bachchan family sits down to watch Black. Ouch !

Coming back to the movie. This one is a winner. A must must must must must watch. I give all the stars. Go watch the movie and listen to Amitabh kicking a suspect into confessing about his role in the Taj Mahal plot.

Saale, Taj Mahal bika hai, teri taxi nahi

this is probably the first time that the review of a movie has come on your blog even before I have had the chance to see it....ye zamaana kidhar jaa raha hai bhai???
