Rascals fails to impress critics

Rascals reviews round-up
Even though the hotly anticipated Rascals failed to impress critics, who were unanimous in giving it cold reviews, the movie has managed to pull off one of the biggest openings at the box office this year. Maybe much can be attributed to Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan the leading actors and Kangana Ranaut their skimpily clad leading lady.

Sanjay and Ajay are competing conmen Chetan Chouhan and Bhagat Bhosale, they both dupe Anthony (Arjun Rampal) and flee to Bangkok, where they chance upon a rich heiress Khushi (Kangana Ranaut). In no time, the rapacious rascals are up with their tricks. While Chetan impersonates as a philanthropist running the charity, Bhagat pulls a fast one on him by pretending as a blind man who served the Navy but lost his sight when betrayed by his beloved. Khushi is touched by Chetan’s charitable zeal, but Bhagat’s unfortunate handicap wins her sympathy and affection. As the two conmen try to outsmart each other in wooing Khushi and thereby claiming her millions, the plot takes an unexpected turn with the arrival of Anthony, who’s out to settle the old score with the rascals.

Nikhil Kumar of ApunKaChoice.com advices you to watch Rascals “only if you love silly comedies.”

The humour in Rascals is as sparse at Kangana’s clothes. Hanging by the noodle-strap thin character sketches of the two rascals -- Chetan (Sanjay Dutt) and Bhagat (Ajay Devgan) -- it swells to entertain you at times, but mostly plunges the depths of banality. Dhawan’s signature style of rhyming the dialogues to tickle you silly works only at times, and instead of an all-out laugh riot, what you get is a raggedy comedy that leans too much on the ladies’ bosom.

Gaurav Malani of the The Times of India sums the movie up as “a silly and stupid comedy!”

Yunus Sejawal's screenplay is inconsistent, convenient and uneventful. It lacks the imagination or wit for some real exciting clash between the male leads. One can easily see through most of the worn-out gags. Sanjay Chhel's synchronized rhyming dialogues are occasionally funny but seem forced otherwise. You laugh more on the corniness of the scenes than the comedy per se. (Times of India Rascals review)


Mayank Shekhar's review in the Hindustan Times labels Rascals as “Nonsense”

This one defies a film. You just lose interest after a while. As do the filmmakers. At some point, out of the blue, they just abandon the whole project, start replaying scenes from the picture, everybody begins dancing together, friends and foes, Anthony Gonsalves, Bhagguji, Chetooji. You wonder what’s going on again. Credits start rolling. Nonsense ends. Poof. Thank you.
(Mayank Shankar's review of Rascals)


Overall this David Dhawan directed comedy fails to live up to the hits he made through the 90s.
