Storyline

Advocate Anand Mathur draws up a will for his client, while reading the novel "Godfather", and erroneously makes out the will with a provision that the beneficiary must be a criminal don in order to inherit the billions of rupees. The beneficiary is a bachelor named Rahul Bhargav, who wants no part of being a Don, criminal or anything of that sort. His Police Inspector girlfriend, Kanchan Dhillon, has set her sights on the billions, and makes him change his mind. She assures him that she will use her influence and ensure that he gets to be the Don in no time at all, little realizing that this will change their lives forever, and make them captives in neighbouring and hostile Pakistan.

a comedy about a ravishing cop, a lawyer-novelist, mafia, a scientist, a hot secret agent, mushroom and sunflower weaved into a messy screenplay
2 October 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

When watching Kundan Shah's 'Ek Se Badhkar Ek', one should expect nothing more than some laughs. It's a comedy about a beautiful cop, mafia dons, a lawyer, scientists, a hot secret agent, mushroom, sunflower, two beautiful women...all weaved into a messed up screenplay. But, it's a funny film. It would have been a far more interesting view if Shah gave the script more consideration. The songs are passable.

The ravishing Raveena Tandon is hilarious as she provides the most laugh-out-loud moments. She's already proved to have a knack for comedy. I, personally, would like to see her do more comedies. Shekhar Suman is funny too but he does tend to go overboard. Sunil Shetty is alright and provides some laughing moments in a few scenes. Ishaa Koppikar, in a relatively smaller role, entertains with her beauty and comic abilities. Most of the supporting cast, especially Asrani and Sadashiv Amrapurkar add to the humour.

On the whole, this may be fun film to be enjoyed with friends and family but I'm not sure of its repeat value.
