With a comedy plot, Javed Jaffrey, Shreyas Talpade, Aashish Chaudhary, and Johnny Lever set foot for the cast. Comedy and drama reaches new heights.


Living in Bangkok, the foursome gets kicked out of their house, because of an unwanted ridicule. With almost no hope and roaming around homeless, they come across a sympathetic landlord. Bhavesh and Parag dress up as women to announce the foursome as couples. One of them finds a job in an architecture firm and hopes for the best. Suddenly, the landlord's wife, Sweety, finds Kareena (Parag) to be pregnant. The plot travels on a chaotic road and it adds up a gang of gangsters demanding for the house. How all of this gets solved finally concludes the movie.


Too much of drama is induced in the plot. Comedy does reach new heights, but drama keeps the viewers to their seats. Nothing new in the plot, but still the comedy punches are good. Characters roles are weak, as there is no such lead role throughout the movie. There was no expectation from the plot, but the star cast did urge us to see the film, which only made the movie worse.

Star Performances:

The cast includes a handful of known actors, but even with all their efforts put together, the movie started to roll slowly in the box office. Leaving the theaters, the film was declared as a semi-hit.

What’s there?

  • The huge star cast.
  • Good punches of comedy.

What’s not there?

  • Too much of drama.
  • Predictable at times.


Good for a one-time watch. Watch it for the cast.
