Going by the trailers and promos of Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Ghanchakkar’, it looks like audiences are in for a con ride. But before you watch ‘Ghanchakkar’, here’s our list of 5 ‘MUST WATCH’ con films.
Special 26 (2013): Neeraj Pandey’s heist flick ‘Special 26’ is a perfect con encounter. Watch it for its witty dialogues and special performance from Akshay Kumar. Even his seriousness is cute like his comedy. The film, till the end keeps you in the hunt of who the real con man is. And in the end, who can forget the iconic line, “Special 26 toh hum hai!” – Keep Guessing.
Bunty Aur Babli (2005): Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji take you on a complete fun ride, disguising themselves as religious priests, tourist guides, business partners and health inspectors. Only that they have a motive behind it – MONEY! Bonus: Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in one frame!
Ladies vs Ricky Bahl (2011): The desi version of ‘John Tucker Must Die’ features Ranveer Singh conning three ladies until he himself lands up in trouble when Anushkha Sharma decides to take revenge with the gang of girls. Get ready to be fooled not once but thrice, and as Ranveer says ‘kya karoon oh ladies, main hoon aadat se majboor.’
Rocket Singh: Salesman Of The Year (2009): Sardars are not the way they are made fun of in real life. Period. Probably the most under-rated film on this list. It’s just better to watch the film, than say anything more.
Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (2008): Get ready to experience the real life of Bunty played by Abhay Deol. The most cool ‘super-chor’ on silver-screen.
