Storyline

Baburao is a landlord in India, who is very near-sighted, and always in financial trouble. He has a tenant named Raja, who has not paid his rent for several months. He also has anther tenant named Shyam, who has come to the city to look for a job in his late father's place, but is unable to find employment. The three men quarrel amongst themselves frequently. Then one day, the three men get a phone call from a kidnapper named Kabira, and decide to make use of this phone call to overcome their financial problems - pretend to be the real kidnappers, increase the ransom amount, keep the incremental amount for themselves, and then give the original ransom demanded to Kabira. Will they get away with this idea? Written by Tanya

Wonderful classic comedy
22 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love love love this movie and have watched it several times, and each time I laugh out loudly. Its one of those classic comedies that you can watch over and over and appreciate even more for the lack of truly funny movies in this genre. The comedy is completely slapstick, but Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar, and Sunil Shetty make it work so well. This is where Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar's comedy partnership commenced, and they have worked in more successful comedies.

The story is about three men who have an opportunity to con someone, and everything ends well. I highly recommend it, but be prepared for slapstick comedy. Om Puri is also added to the mix and is funny as well. Om and Paresh make a good pair too.
