Our Score
This Bollywood take on Argentinian crime drama Nine Queens sees Abhishek Bachchan, son of Indian cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan, in the role of a conman who's shown the door by his girlfriend when he's caught red-handed trying to fleece her family. If that's not enough to contend with, our hero then reluctantly takes on an apprentice and receives some devastating news. It all zips along at quite a pace and the who's-conning-who scenario is enough to keep you entertained, but ultimately Bachchan never fully convinces as the beleaguered grifter.

Summary

Comedy adventure, starring Abhishek Bachchan as a swindler having an especially bad time - first his girlfriend finds out he's a crook and leaves him, then he learns he only has 90 days left to live. Enlisting the aid of a man desperate to learn the tricks of the trade, he decides to use his remaining time to pull off one last con with a shady hotel owner as the target. With Priyanka Chopra and Ritesh Deshmukh.
