At the first glance, 'Cheater' looks like any other con-film. A young conman and compulsive liar tries to find new ways of fooling people for personal gain. And as all con-films go, our very own hero too lands in trouble, courtesy his 'dealings'.

Having folled almost everyone, from his friends to an aspiring politician, Abhay (Tatwawdi) is known across Pune as a cheater. His friends hide money fearing he would coax them into giving it to him with some excuse and his family is fed up of people complaining about him. Amidst all this, Abhay meets Mrudula (Sawant), a girl from Mauritius who is in India to study psychology and 'get acquainted with Maharashtrian values' at the insistence of her grandmother, and falls for her. Due to his habit of lying though, he ends up convincing Mrudula that he's a PhD student and son of an industrialist. Now, when Mrudula goes back to Mauritius, her father (Hrishikesh) surprises the family by purchasing an old villa there. However, Mrudula's grandmother (Suhas) feels there's an evil spirit residing in the villa. She calls for a Agnihotri Brahmin to perform certain rituals there and our conman Abhay disguises as the priest and reaches Mauritius. Things take a supernatural turn from then on.

As convoluted as the plot may sound, there's some respite in Tatwawdi's acting. The young actor is versatile and adapts to Abhay's role like a chameleon. His portrayal is commendable especially because this is not a genre that he's familiar with. Hrishikesh goes about with his usual antics and Pooja increases the glam quotient of the film.

'Cheater' is more of a combination of situations than a neatly woven story. It has its share of laughs but the shoddy special effects and a seemingly inexistent plot hamper the film's progress. Watch it if you are a fan of films that require you to 'keep your brains at home'.
