It is one of the most interesting paradoxes world over, more so in the context of the Indian cinema that the characters playing conmen are revered quite a lot. LADIES V/S RICKY BAHL, is the latest addition to this category. Proliferation of such portrayal of characters in the world of cinema could be owing to the fact that we have an element of historicity associated with it, it being in the form of NATWARLAL. If one were to look for the religious sanctity then the character of conman that Lord Krishna had played in mythology also provides the evidence to it. When the character of Lord Krishna is used, it also provides opportunity to rope in the lovely ladies as well in the game of conmen as it is being portrayed in LADIES V/S RICKY BAHL, the difference here being that the con is turned out on the male of the variety as well in the form of introduction of a lady character playing con, role being enacted by Anushka Sharma.

It indeed is a perfect opportunity to glean through the pages of history to find out some movies of this kind which have relied on the idea of con as the subject matter.
