The Rascals Movie Review

‘Rascals’ has few chuckles and lots of cleavage!
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 2/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Rascals
You go in looking for laughs, but you come out with lingering images of Kangana Ranaut’s newfound cleavage. Credit to her belatedly active hormones or some skilled cosmetic surgeon, Kangana is no longer the wishy-washy flatboard of Gangster days. The lady’s femininity is now literally bursting at the seams and director David Dhawan employs it to an exploitative extent in Rascals. So for a good part of the movie, we see an excited Ajay Devgan throwing himself all over a skimpily clad Kangana Ranaut. And she plays along, happily stripping off her top to make the point that she can as much be a sex bomb when she peels off. Whether this career move is daring or dumb is open to question.

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.

Chetan and Bhagat are two competing conmen who separately dupe Anthony (Arjun Rampal) on his engagement day 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, The Art of Giving, 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.

The camaraderie between the leading men could be the mainstay of a comedy like this and the tuning between Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan isn’t exactly riotous. What’s lacking is the punch of comedy we associate with Dhawan’s best works starring his favourite Govinda. Some of the scenes -- like the bank robbery, or Devgan’s rant at Navy ball -- try too hard to make you laugh, but hardly succeed. Likewise, Devgan and Dutt’s antics to outsmart each other aren’t clever or funny.

Dhawan tries to gloss over the shortcoming with ample display of skin by Kangana Ranaut and Lisa Haydon and thereby ends up providing more titillation than tickles.

My advice: watch Rascals only if you love silly comedies.

Rating: 2 stars out of 5
