What happens when these twins meet each other? The rest of the story deals with this.

Star Performance

Ranveer and Varun tried to give out their best. The rest of the stars did what was expected of them.


Rohit Shetty’s movies usually have good humor, and everyone who watches his film will never care for the story but for the timely comedy. This time, Rohit failed to provide that too. The humor didn’t work out and the first half was unimpressive. The cameo of Deepika and Ajay didn’t have a significant impact, as the screenplay failed to pull the audience to the main script. Except for Johnny Lever’s role, no other roles were much impressive. The songs are okayish, and the visuals are good.

What’s There?

  • A good set of actors is present

What’s Not There?

  • Weak screenplay and execution


Even with good performers, the film cannot connect with the audience and fails to entertain.
