Storyline

Peter (O.P. Ralhan) overhears a conversation between a man and a woman, plotting to kill the wife of a "Mahesh Jetley". Being a very sincere, diligent and a concerned citizen, Peter sets out to try and warn Mrs. Jetley of the apparent threat to her life. After overcoming a number of obstacles, including convincing his prospective mother-in-law, Philomena D'Costa (Tun Tun) that he is not possessed by a demon, he discovers that not one but several Mr. Jetleys have a number of motives for killing their respective wives. Will Peter uncover the real Mr. Jetley who he overheard or will he uncover a number of dead Mrs. Jetleys? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fear of police interference in day to day life prompts a civic minded Peter to take matters into his own hand. He has overheard a plan to murder.
28 December 2013 | by (New Zealand / India) – See all my reviews

Three Mahesh Jaitlys are found in the telephone directory. While welding some parts of a bridge Peter (OP Ralhan) overhears a man saying to a woman, while holding hands "soon you will be Mrs Mahesh Jaitly. I have devised a good plan to kill Mrs Jaitley and you will soon be the new Mrs. Mahesh Jaitly". This takes Peter, his fiancée and foster mother on a suspenseful journey of participation in the lives of the three Mahesh Jaitly couples. The denouement begins when Peter, in an attempt to uncover the real (potential) killer traps one of the Maheses (Kabir Bedi)into a murder deal. For lovers of Hindustani cinema, this is highly recommended. The thought one is left with is, what does a good citizen do when s/he hears or sees some potential criminal activity.
