    Many would remember "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, a light con-comedy typical of the late eighties-early nineties. It was adapted by Rakesh Roshan and though not as funny and with a good dosage of melodramatic Bollywood, Anupam Kher, Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor did a fair job remaking the film. David Dhawan attempts another version but fails miserably.

    The reasons are many but the primary being that this kind of forced comedy just does not work in today's times. The rhyming dialogues, the double entendres and a script that really borders on the ridiculous; its a mishmash of all that's wrong with Indian cinema today. Topped with that is a jaded looking Sanjay Dutt, a barely amusing Ajay Devgn (he should really not work in comedies) and a screeching Kangana Ranaut who's only job is to be felt up by the leading pair of rascals who look old enough to be her dads.

    I have something against frivolous comedies where filmmakers just load up the film with insider jokes and corny banter. This year has seen one too many and here's another one joining the list. As Satish Kaushik says in the film "yahan earth pe unarth ho raha hai", it truly represents my feelings.

    Thankfully its not a long movie but you can feel your youth dying by the time the last con is played. Unfortunately the joke's on you. Sucker!!!
