Bunty aur Babli (2005): Glowing

40. Bunty aur Babli (2005) — Probably to the dismay of Sayesha, this is my fortieth Bombay film! Wasn’t as bad as I’d been warned, thankfully — I was expecting one of those vainglorious Butch Cassidy and the Sunshine Kid / Bonnie and Clyde type endings. Heaved a sigh of relief at the silly one instead. This is a fluffy ride, greatly compensated by being a feast for the senses — I’ve decided that Babli is my fashion icon of the year, just for her multi-hued look in the first part of the movie. (Rani M has never looked better. Aishwarya Rai looked like someone or other’s dream. Due to Yuva, it took some time before I stopped being freaked out by Abhishek Bachchan, but he’s aw shucks cute, la. Amitabh Bachchan’s background music was kinda disturbing …) I’m a sucker for bright colours put together in outrageously amazing ways. Sharmishtha Roy rawks!
