Review: Maneesh Sharma hit the jackpot with Band Baaja Baarat. The film did exceptionally well raising the bar for both Maneesh and the cast (which is almost the same) in Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl. Luckily, Maneesh"s second film not only manages to, but rather surpasses the verve, zing and presence of its predecessor.
Ranveer probably deserves the most claps for an extremely convincing performance as Sunny, Deven, Iqbal and finally Ricky. He plays every role with a zest that is clearly visible on the big screen. He comes across as classy and entertaining.
The surprise elements of the film are the three girls who have done a wonderful job in depicting their character. Parineeti Chopra especially stands out, with her impeccable comic timing. Dipannita is convincing in her role of a poised corporate woman but may not have done enough to mark her comeback. Aditi Sharma plays her character well and is quite impressive.
Anushka Sharma looks superb throughout the movie, though the same cannot be said of her acting. Her performance in the movie is at best, average.
The first half of the movie is fast paced and exciting. The second half becomes a little slow in bits and parts but the script, the dialogues and the music are good enough a disguise to keep you from noticing the lag.
The spirited performance of the girls, the foot-thumping music and Ranveer"s convincing acting warrants a 3.5 star rating for Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl.
