Storyline

Born in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, Ram Saran Pandey, relocates to Bombay, Maharashtra, to improve his lifestyle, leaving behind his mom and dad, Sudama, with a promise to call them to Bombay when he is well settled. Ram gets employed as a garage mechanic, and this is where he meets with a customer named Kamya Lal, a Journalist, who is impressed by his honesty. She decides to write a number of articles on him, making him immensely popular. She allows him to visit her at all times in her palatial bungalow, giving Ram the impression that she is attracted to him. Then one night, a drunken Ram decides to ask Kamya for her hand in marriage - and this is the night that Ram will be thrust into a world that he has never known before - changing, if not risking his life, forever.

Trivia

Manoj Bajpai had agreed to do the film in his pre Satya days. After Satya released, Hansal Mehta could not find a producer for the film. Hansal Mehta finally found a producer, but he had a very very small budget and would only produce the film if Manoj Bajpai was the lead actor. But now Manoj found the film too small and not fitting his new star status. He refused the film. In desperation Hansal approached Aditya Srivastav for the lead role. He accepted it. But now the producer backed out.They only wanted Manoj. Now after a few months of struggling , producer Ajay Tuli came into the picture. He was able to bring the budget up. This lead to Manoj Bajpai coming back into the film and Aditya Srivastav taking the role of Dubai return "Tito". See more »

Don't take it too seriously, man!
29 December 2000 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Interesting, but flawed film about the (mis)adventures of a country bumpkin in the big, bad, mad world of Bombay. he is befriended by a few odd characters, also trying to make their fortunes in the city (in their own way). also he is smitten by a beautiful, charming woman who is a budding tv/film scriptwriter. how he gets deeper and deeper into trouble, and how his (idealistic) dreams are shattered, are nothing new for film buffs. but the film has some nice moments sprinkled throughout, and the tone is almost always realistic. also the acting is good, though Manoj Bajpai unnecessarily hams it up at some places. still, this is preferable to the average Indian potboiler. one hot dance number adds spice to the proceedings. by the way the title means "don't take it to heart, buddy", so i guess u don't have to take the film too seriously.
