Its silliness will get to you and make you laugh. The plot is nonsensical, implausible. Half the jokes will not appeal to you. But the other half will, so you’re assured a fairly decent two hours spent, watching the antics of Ajay, Fardeen and Sanjay sparking off each other, while watching the widely assorted supporting cast of Bips, Mugdha (who looked slightly ill at ease), Asrani, Johnny Lever, Atul Parchure and Sanjay Mishra, prance, dance and get beaten

The story is irrelevant so I wont get into it. Lets just say it involves a rich brother, mistaken identities and eccentric villains, tenants, music bands and a car race. The film is actually just a string of assorted gags, jokes and situations. Sample : What is a PhD : Phata Hua Dhol. MBA : Maha Bekaar Aadmi. When someone serving tea asks, ‘kitne chamach ?’, pat comes the reply, ‘bhai, chamach to ek hi lekin cheeni do dena..’…

The male trio here, Ajay, Fardeen and Sanjay are the ones who really carry the movie on their shoulders, reducing all others to necessary extra’s. Ajay’s laconic nature and deadpan expression suits him well as does the Sanjay’s more expressive nature. The antipathy between the two is nicely built up and provides for several of the funnier moments. Fardeen does a good job in his role but is second fiddle to the two seniors.

There are plenty of slapstick moments – you get the ‘dog chasing a guy in boxers’, the ‘man on man moment’ etc but thankfully the bulk of the film relies more on the silly, goofy moments and snappy one liners.

Decent, worth a watch and you’re assured a few laughs…you may try to resist, but the silliness does overcome all stiffness and eventually you join the ride…All the Best…
