At the movies



LAUGH RIOT The two Khans try to outdo each other

Here are some movies exclusively dedicated to the great gods of con:

Andaz Apna Apna: This vastly underrated Rajkumar Santoshi film is a hilarious series of cons as Salman Khan and Aamir Khan try to win the hand of the rich heiress.

Bunty Aur Bubbly: Shaad Ali directs Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee playing tricksters. Aishwariya burnt up the screen with "Kajra Re" while the Big B got wild whistles for his turn as the cop on the trail of the duplicitous duo

Bluffmaster: Rohan Sippy and Abhishek Bachchan teamed up for the second time after Kuch Na Kaho with happier results. Decidedly retro looking, the film has Abhishek playing the king of conmen training his understudy (Riteish Deshmukh) in the rules of the game.

Hera Pheri: Priyadarshan till then was known for his sensitive movies like Virasaat and Saat Rang Ke Sapne. It was with this film, another remake of his Malayalam film with Suniel Shetty and Akshay Kumar and the incredible Paresh Rawal, that he lays serious claim to the title of Maharaja of Madness and Mayhem.

Khel: The letter K proved lucky for director Rakesh Roshan again in this movie starring Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor as tricksters trying to get the better of each other.

In Hollywood the con film is a separate genre with many titles from the feisty Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and the classic Sting to Steven Spielberg's biopic of Frank Abignale, Catch Me if You Can and Heartbreakers, which was remade into the execrable Bachke Rehna Re Baba with Mallika Sherawat and Rekha.
