    Ladies v/s Ricky BahlWatch trailerRelease date : December 09, 2011

    Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl is a decent watch however, a decent watch is not what one expected from the team that gave us Band Baja Baraat.

    Ricky Bahl is a conman, who fools girls and fleeces money from them. He is a good guy at heart, morals intact, so he wouldnt exploit these girls even if they throw themselves on him. He meets his nemesis in Anushka, who is a set up by three of Ricky's victims to settle scores.

    The first half of the film goes about breezily. Ranveer is charsimatic, he has a certain presence on screen that is undeniable, despite unconventional looks. The supporting casts of the three ladies are characterized beautifully, and amazingly well performed. Parineeti Chopra, as Dimple, walks away with the best moments in the entire film and dazzles.

    Anushka as a salesgirl is competent giving a believability to the proceedings. Yet, where the film fails is the utter lack of authenticity or even sense in the script.

    Unlike Band Baja, the script has innumerable loopholes taking the film into a mediocre spiral post interval. It is a YRF movie and we know problems get solved magically in this world, yet, a con of Ricky's callibre getting conned so easily is a tad too far fetched.

    Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl is not unwatchable. It is entertaining, endearing at times. What it is lacking in is some magic. And that is a huge loss for this wonderful combination of actors.
