One look at the film would make one wonder about the
aptness of the title. Revolving around the story of
two middle class boys who want to get rich, the story
lacks the necessary panache. The film begins with a
scheming girl (Tara Deshpande) trying to burn herself
and implicate her in-laws in a dowry case. She succeeds
with the help of her friend who gives false evidence
and her in-laws are sentenced to imprisonment.
forward and the story moves on to two friends Chantu
(Saahil Khan) and Bantu (Sharman Joshi) who do everything
else in college except attending classes. Life is an
adventure and so they go about doing things their own
way. Through lies and deceit they solve the students'
problems and in the bargain bulldoze the students for
rich gifts. Enter Sheena (Riya Sen) and Rani(Shilpi
Mudgal) in college. After the usual bouts of ragging
they realize that these two are rich. So they start
to patao them. And you wonder where there is a link
between the 'dowry' victim (who is now a P.T. teacher
in the same college) and the story.
The boys in their attempts to woo the girls also impersonate
as Reshma and Rosa in women's garb.
The girls fall in love and the movie is interspersed
with the usual song and dances. Reshma is in fact Tara
Deshpande's sister-in-law. Then the story takes a turn
and the boys are implicated in the murder of the girls
they impersonate. Her friend blackmails Tara and she
tries to get the duo drawn in while they do not believe
her when she tries to prove herself guilty. Then the
From a fun-loving first half with 'humorous' dialogues,
the film gets mired in unnecessary drama and violence
leaving you thinking what the director really wanted
What is style? Being a cool dude and flaunting and flashing
Levis, Nike et all and teasting, ragging and playing
Is college-life all about ragging, romancing and indulging
in pranks? What does the director want to show by portraying
the actual situation as is prevalent? In the final analysis,
he does nothing new except by roping in fresh faces
in the cast.
Joshi does not possess a typical hero's looks but does
justice to the role. Saahil has more brawn than brains
as compared to Sharman in the role. The girls Riya and
Shilpi sport the sultry bimbette looks enhanced by their
itsy-bitsy outfits. Even though N. Chandra returns after
a considerable hiatus he fails to pull off a winner
by this weak story.
