Pure, complete and utter nonsense. No story. Terrible acting by most actors (led by Bobby Deol). And jokes, gags that fall whimperingly flat

Am going to struggle to describe the plot since the makers clearly lost it. Lets just say that it involves a con, Godmen, rich, confused businessmen, unmarried daughters and sons, corny, filmy dialogue amongst the Salman Fan Club, a man posing as an Orangutan, a villain who calls himself Dude, yet another fake twin brother who pulls the moustache trick (for people who claimed to watch a lot of movies, surprising they fell for this ?), couple of evil henchmen who’s core competence seems to be changing get ups for every scene, Sumo Wrestlers / Kung fu specialists and the obligatory fight scenes with our ‘dhai kilo ka haath’ Sunny Paa ji…

The actors who really appall are Bobby Deol and Anupam Kher (one of his worst performances, roles for a long time) and a lot of the extras, side role artistes. Sunny Deol and the two women, purely in it for their eye candy, low neckline / high hemline abilities, manage to come out of it at least without egg on their face. The overdrawn climax scene is bad beyond belief.

Resisted an impulse to walk out during halftime. Will respect my hunches more the next time.
