The job is given to a con girl — Anushka Sharma. Is it checkmate time or is it time for redemption, we need to watch the movie to know more.
Review:- Maneesh Sharma brought together the couple of Band Baaja Baraat. Though the movie has some good response from the audience, but it doesn’t match up with the standards of the first movie. The movie lacks humour. Also the chemistry between the pair is missing in the movie, which was probably the key ingredient of the first movie. The role of Anuksha starts from the post-interval, prior to that the movie revolves around Ranveer, fooling the three girls. He dupes Parineeti and Aditi by pretending he’s in love with them, Dipannita by selling her a fake Hussain painting. And then tries to con Anushka by selling her useless land at an exorbitant price. But somewhere down the singing and dancing, the duo steal a kiss and seal a new relationship: Voila! it’s love at first kiss. Unconvincing, isn’t it?
What does work in favour of the film are its performances and its non-hysterical tenor. The girls are a spirited lot and Ranveer is, well Ranveer: your average Joe kind of hero who looks convincing enough as Sunny, Deven, Iqbal, Ricky, his sundry avatars. Music by Salim Sulaiman is ordinary. Still a few numbers are doing well like Aadat se Majboor, Thag Le. Overall the movie is average and gains a 3 star out of five in most of ratings websites.
