He develops the dream and projects it on his daughter Lata. As Lata is overweight, she had been made fun at the musical events. He even sacrifices his job to make his daughter, a singer. With the help of his friend Adhir, Prashant decides to kidnap the popular singer Baby Singh. He threatens to kill Baby Singh if his daughter’s musical show is not held. What happens next? Do watch it in theaters!

Star Performance

Anil Kapoor has done his best and we could see the emotions of a passionate father to make his daughter a singer. Aishwarya Rai and Rajkummar don’t have much scope, yet they have done their part well. Pihu Chand emotes well as the overweight teenager. Divya Dutta does her role well.


The director has come with a good script for Anil Kapoor. Unlike some heroes, who still play the youth even in their 60s, Anil Kapoor should be appreciated for his selection. He has been doing the roles that suit his age and it is really laudable. The entire story is carried out by Anil Kapoor and the director has shaped his part, well. The director should have concentrated in the second half. Based on the music, the film fails in that aspect. Except for a couple of songs, the music didn’t impress much.

What’s There?

  • Performance of the stars is excellent
  • The script is impressive
  • The chemistry between Aish and Rajkummar is good

What’s Not There?

  • Second half loses its grip
  • No strong background for Aishwarya and Rajkummar’s parts


If you are an Anil Kapoor fan, you will love it. If you are an Aishwarya fan, you will get irked, as her part is minimal. However, the film is watchable once!
