Ladies VS Ricky Bahl - Preview

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Wow! Is the film fraternity celebrating woman's month or something? While Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl is no where close to bringing all things feminine to screen as The Dirty Picture was, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl does attempt at portraying various shades of women without stereotyping or caricaturing them. Yet, though the film is interesting it is not entertaining enough.

Déjà vu is not a good feeling to have when you are watching a film's trailer. And Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl evokes a strong "been there, seen that" emotion. Not only have we seen Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh who form the lead pair, together not too long ago in Band Baaja Baaraat, they also seem to be playing similar characters too - street-smart and upbeat about life. And both the films are directed by Maneesh Sharma.

Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl carries this other strong flavor of Bonnie and Clyde or our own desi version - Shaad Ali's Bunty Aur Babli.

And yet, the lead pair, especially Anushka Sharma has an air of freshness around her whenever she comes on screen. Though the exuberance seems a bit forced and trying-too-hard in these two dance sequences. But nevertheless, there is some hope of a few nice moments and decent performances given the team's track record. If nothing else, the hope at least takes away some of the negative vibes that the overall impression that the look and feel of the trailers has created about the film. The music too seems way too generic.
