Time : Too long…
Director & Writer : Sachin Yardi; Music : Sachin-Jigar and others
Starring : Tusshar Kapoor, Ritesh Deshmukh, Neha Sharma, Sarah Jane Dias, Anupam Kher, Chunky Pandey

Our two lead actors, Tusshar and Ritesh, are down and out and sitting staring mournfully into the sky. One starts staring at a hoarding of a certain feminine hygiene ad. The other questions why he is looking at a woman’s product. Our hero responds “Main soch raha hoon main bhi le loon, mera bahut bura period chal raha hai”.

Imagine throughout the film there is a desperate attempt to convert everything into a double meaning. Imagine recycled jokes, which have been around since our school days. Imagine every supposed punch line preceded, punctuated and paired with extremely loud music, sound effects (in most cases the sound of a toilet flushing). Also imagine most lines delivered along with much lip chewing, hand gestures and supposedly sexy facial expressions. Imagine poor production values, cheap sets. Add unto all this some very poor acting skills. Now you have some idea of what this film is about.
Tusshar and Ritesh are friends and roommates along with the latter pet pug dog, Sakru. The first is a wannabe actor, the other is a wannabe DJ. The pug is a certified gigolo. Tusshar has reason to believe Neha is his soul mate and proposes within a day of meeting her. She, quite inexplicably, pretends to be a lesbian while obviously rejecting the proposal. Her room mate, Sarah, helps her ensure the gay perception is maintained, while falling for Ritesh at the same time when the boys land up in Goa chasing the two women. Her father, Anupam Kher is a billionaire and eccentric would be too mild a term for his antics (it was sad to see him in such a role). Many S&M scenes, gay misunderstandings and lets not forget the obligatory drag scene later the film reaches its predictable conclusion.
The positives are the two women, who I found nice looking. Ritesh has developed this sameness about his roles, which was almost comforting here as everything else was such a mess. Apart from the Garden, Garden song, the soundtrack has not much to offer.

Will leave you with two more jokes from the film. If you like either, you must go for it, as there are plenty more like these…
“Lets raise a toast”. Two glasses and a piece of bread go up. Tusshar protests “Not fair, baat to toast ki hui thi, tum drinks kyun le rahe ho ?”

“Hi ! My name is DJ. Whats yours ?” says Ritesh to curvaceous chick. “BJ” she replies, to the accompaniment of cymbals clashing, horns blaring and other assorted sound effects. “Kyun, mera naam sun ke, tumhara muh kyun khul gaya?”
