You can say one thing about 'Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl' - the movie has more sophistication than its kitschy name. The title would have you imagine a kind of women's liberation movement against Ricky Bahl, but thankfully, this is just a bunch of ladies taking 'revenge' against a conman who exploits their foolishness.
After 'Band Baaja Baaraat', it is not too much to expect a similar show from the same team that had given us such a hearty entertainer. Sadly, 'Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl', doesn't quite hit it off. The first part of the movie is engaging and entertaining, but towards the end, you feel let down by the loosening knots of the plot.
Ricky Bahl (alias Sunny Singh, Iqbal, Deven) is a conman who makes his living out of fooling rich girls, and many times their dads, and getting lacs and crores milked from them with only his thousand watt smile and a sob story as weapons. Or, by posing as an art exhibitor and conning a lady manager with a fake M F Hussain art. Winning the hearts of girls and their fathers is a child's play for Ricky, and somehow, it is hard to digest that he could manage to cheat 30 girls and not have the police hunting for him, especially when that list contains powerful people like industrialists.
