If you have watched “Band Baaja Baaraat” then you can’t even think to miss Ladies V/S. Ricky Bahl. Ranveer-Anushka chemistry, Ranveer’s charm and killer looks, Anushka’s smart and stylish acting skills, superb music by Salim-Sulaiman and Maneesh Sharma’s smart and entertaining direction skills which comes in a “Yash Raj Films” brand-mark – everything was back again in this movie.
With a story (written by Aditya Chopra) that lacked the depth of a fully fledged Hindi film, the screenplay by Devika Bhagat also falls short of doing what was needed to make the film stand out. In the end, you can expect a few laughs, lots of colours and a happy ending. Just make sure you enter the theatre with low expectations.
Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, as the title suggests, is primarily a tussle between a charismatic con man Ricky Bahl (Ranveer Singh) and three lovely ladies- Dimple (Parineeti), Raina (Dipannita) and Saira (Aditi). The war begins when Ricky (in disguise of fictitious names) cheats on the ladies by disappearring with their money. Raina being the smartest of all, along with Dimple and Saira, plans to take revenge from Ricky, with a help of small-time sales-woman who works in a mall- Ishika Desai (Anushka Sharma). They are on the verge of winning the battle, when Ishika falls in love with Ricky, who too claims to be all hers. Now, will Ishika remain loyal to the ladies and con Ricky or will she get carried away in love is what follows next in the story.
Ladies vs Ricky Bahl doesn’t exceed expectations. But it’s a one-time watch movie.
