Rascals is a hilarious comic entertainer, which has all relish masala elements. The electrifying chemistry between Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn is the major attraction of the film. The storyline is non-existent, which may not impress the viewers, who like realistic and meaningful films.
The movie is about two conmen, who try to pull each others' legs with their hilarious gimmicks. David Dhawan has wonderful command over the tempo of the movie. The first half of the film is interesting with its lively moments and the second half tests the patience of the movie buffs as some unnecessary sequences drag it. But the film is back on track in the climax.
Chetan (Sanjay Dutt) and Bhagat (Ajay Devgn) are two conmen, who are trying to out-scheme each other in consistently amusing and surprising setups. They get into an one-upmanship game to win the girl (Kangana Ranaut), who is rich both financially and physically. Who wins her heart will form the climax of the film.
Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn have together delivered excellent acting and the chemistry between the two is simply superb. They successfully tickle the funny bones of the viewers. Arjun Rampal also adds to the comic portions of the film. Kangna Ranaut carries off her part with effortless ease. Lisa Haydon, Chunkey Pandey, Satish Kaushik, Hiten Paintal and others have acted reasonably well.
Vishal-Shekhar composed music is also good and songs like 'Tik Tuk', 'Gaye Guzre' and 'Shake It Saiyaan' are good to listen. Writer Yunus Sajawal's screenplay keeps you completely involved, while Sanjay Chhel's witty one-liners will draw a lot of whistles and claps from the viewers.
Overall, it can be said that David Dhawan unleashes the two senior rascals and let them have a blast. The movie is strictly recommended to comedy lovers.
