Deliciously Hilarious!!
22 September 2004 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Ashok Kumar is the father of four sons, and Pearl Padamsee is a mother of two sons, and a rather overweight and emotional daughter. When David proposes that they marry each other - which they do - chaos results.

Add to this we have Deven Verma, who is simply anxious, to the point of an obsession, to get married to any girl, and he not only keeps on pestering his poor mom, Piloo Wadia, but his co-workers, his acquaintances, and al. Kishore Kumar's "Mommy O Mommy tu kab saas banegi, Mommy O mommy tu kab saas banegi..." (O Mother mine when will you become a mother-in-law...)is simply hilarious, and must be seen to be believed. A must-see movie for the entire family.
