Storyline

Vikrant and Gulab Khatri are brothers-in-law who hate each other, and it is only through Vikrant's dad, who is also a mafia underworld don, that an uneasy peace is maintained. But when he passes away, a vengeful Vikrant frames Gulab in the murder of a politician, forcing Gulab to flee to the United States. Once there, Gulab hopes to re-build his life, but this thought is in vain as his neighbors, the Acharyas, find out about him and the reward offered for his arrest - and create a mini-hell for him - forcing him to show his true colors to them - colors that may well lead to the demise of the entire family.

A funny rehash
27 October 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

APD starts off as a 'Been there, Seen that' yawn of a movie. In true Bollywood style, it rehashes Action from 'The Matrix' and a plot more than loosely based on 'The Whole Nine Yards'. Akshay Kumar, who is slowly establishing himself as an actor par excellence with every movie he signs makes one wonder why he is doing the same thing again, especially when you see how lame the action looks in the context. But then, about half an hour into the movie, something happens that has one rivetted to their seat for the next two hours. Paresh Rawal enters. The more said about him, the better it gets. the bellyaching laughs start and don't stop, even if you try your best. And what's more amazing is that his singular joke in the movie never gets old. Such is the explosive talent of this fine actor. There is a myriad of characters to keep you laughing, one kookier than the rest.

Akshay is good as the Serious, no nonsense don who can't help but work with the army of misfits surrounding him. Suneil Shetty, in the smallest role of the film manages to come across as very funny as the man who forgets simple words. Johnny Lever as the stammering sidekick with a short fuse is hilarious, especially in his one 2 one's with Rawal. Aftab Shivdasani carries the part of a henpecked Husband with conviction.

Supriya is great as Paresh Rawal's menacing wife. Out of the three leading women, Aarti Chabria has the best role, but pity she is not as good an actress as is needed to carry it off.

And finally, Paresh Rawal... funny to the hilt, his innocent, miserable husband who cannot remember names is simply fantastic.

All in all, a film definitely worth watching. Highlight of the film - EVERY SCENE WITH PARESH RAWAL IN IT.
