Storyline

Ashok R. Tilak lives in Dinkapur with his widowed mother, and a servant named Bahadur. He travels to another town on a business trip to buy several acres of grape-bearing trees, with Bahadur accompanying him. Although this is his first trip to this town, however, everyone appears to know him and Bahadur, including the Ticket Checker at the Railway Station, the taxi-driver, the Hotel Manager, local Police Inspector Sinha, a Jeweler named Chhedilal and his assistant Mansoor, and to top it all a woman named Sudha claims that she is his wife, and another woman named Tanu claims that she is his sister-in-law, while a third one named Alka claims that she is his mistress. All's not well for Bahadur either for he bears the brunt of this confusion when he finds out that he has a wife named Prema; a normally sane boss, who keeps on sniffing snuff and smoking alternatively, and who yells and slaps him frequently. After a nightmarish night, the hapless duo decide they have had enough and decide ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Very Very funny
5 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday and nearly fell off my sofa, laughing. Even now I cant stop smiling every time I think of various scenes from the movie. Especially the scene in which Deven Verma barks like a dog is so cute. The plot line about a gang is great touch.

Hats off to Gulzar for such a well thought-out script. Even though, it is a copy of Comedy of Errors, but still I've seen so many perfect stories being ruined by Bollywood, that this one is a relief. I cannot think a single other recent movie which is made with so much thought, a lot more money perhaps, but not much thought.

Highly recommended...!!
