Using their wits, Ganpatrao "Babubhai" Apte, Ghanshyam "Shyam", and Raju find themselves wealthy beyond their imagination. They each have a car, a palatial house with a huge swimming pool, that Babubhai is yet to familiarize himself with, and a very easy life. Then Raju finds out that he can double his wealth in 21 days, and meets with an attractive young woman named Anuradha from an agency in Bombay's business district. She informs him that the minimum investment is one Crore, and Raju quickly agrees to invest this money. He dupes another man by the name of Pappu into parting with 50 Lakhs, and the rest of the money comes through by getting Shyam and Babu to sign away their respective investments. After 21 days when the trio go to collect their doubled wealth, they find that Anuradha and her company have disappeared. Devastated, they move out of their bungalow and are now living in a shanty room in a Chawl when they get a visit from Pappu, who wants his money back, as he owes this ... Written by rAjOo (

Laugh loud
19 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a decently directed movie in the sense that it makes you laugh most of the times it was meant to, but no one can take over Priyadarshan. Certain scenes and dialogs were not funny at all like the ones when Babu Rao talks about his telephone in the beginning and when he comes to take the money in his chaul house to not believe it really is his home, also when Raju peeks into Johny Lever's apartment through the picture and several such scenes. Priyadarshan never includes lame comedy scenes or dialogs in his movies. Yet, the climax was a very Priyadarshan style where the comedy goes long into several groups fighting with each other like in Hera Pheri (part 1). Moreover, certain scenes and dialogs were repetitive. For instance, the two tall black villains added no substance what-so-ever and the Rs.1000 scene with Raju and his girl was over done the first time and thereon had the same concept repeating in subsequent scenes. Since most people only count the times they laugh to judge a comedy movie, I would say it's a great laughter movie and every couple of minutes, you find yourself either laughing or smiling. So if you haven't yet, go watch it!
