He's a conman who fleeces in style. His victims are young girls and he uses his good looks, ready wit and inborn charm, to first lure his 'victims' to a point of surrender and then flee with the loot. Usually, he involves the 'victims' families as well to gain that trust. But he knows where to draw the line; he never mixes business with pleasure.
Fairytale stuff but presented well. Well enough to be kept entertained for a major part of the film. All five characters blend well to make this a watchable fare. Apart from Ranvir, there's Parineeti Chopra (feisty performance), who plays Dimple, a Delhi lass very much in love with Ricky. There's also Aditi Sharma who plays Saira, another who has been successfully conned. After Rajjo in MAUSAM, she pitches in with another controlled performance. Dipannita Sharma as Raina has been conned for the largest sum; being sold a fake Husain, while Anushka Sharma is roped in by these girls to exact revenge from the Conman.
The choreography of the songs may be good, but the jerky camera movements are a strain on the eye. You prefer to close your eyes and listen to the song rather than view the dance steps. A research needs to be done by YRF on how to present well-choreographed songs to the viewers.
What makes the film go down a steep slope after moving to a solid high is the stupid showing of how these girls manage to sell fake Gucci's and Prada's to Ricky. He is shown as a man who knows his stuff. So why this laziness in the script?
This movie will find its audience with the teenagers.
