Movie Review: Rascals (2011)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Flop

RASCALS is a comedy about the joys of conning where Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn play two cool competing conmen trying to out-scheme each other in consistently amusing and surprising setups.

But when both fall for the same girl (Kangna), the competition reaches an all new level as both men constantly attempt to outwit each other to win over the surprisingly elusive Kangna!

Since much of the comedy involves people taking advantage of one another, having everything put forward in such a gossamer manner that RASCALS becomes an enjoyable journey throughout with an interesting twist at the end!

Times Of India says

Rascals is what one can call a ‘vacation’ filmmaking stint where everyone works on the film as if they were on a ‘holiday’ and the audience is expected to ‘leave’ their senses behind. The actors make least efforts to add conviction to their performances and the patchy writing just allows them to play as they please. Invariably the director tries to camouflage the shallowness in the story by adding depth only in the decibel levels of the dialogue delivery.
