Bunty Aur Babli is a Hindi-language crime-comedy film directed by Shaad Ali and starring Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan. Amitabh Bachchan stars in a supporting role. It was the first film to feature Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek Bachchan and featured guest appearances by Aishwarya Rai and Tania Zaetta. It was one of the biggest hits of the year.
The plot, although drawing on the idea of two rather lovable crooks, does not contain violence. Each of the adventures of Bunty and Babli are thoroughly Indianised, like the fake selling of the Taj Mahal. It draws comparisons to the American classic Bonnie and Clyde but without dark elements, and the lead characters do not die a bloody death (unlike their American counterparts).
