Storyline

Asmi Ganatra is asked to produce a TV serial for 786 Plus on a wedding ceremony in a joint family. After approval, the only place she could locate to make this serial is the Joshi family. She meets with them but they turn her down. She then meets with Manoj Joshi, who is infatuated with her, pays him, and arranges for cameras to be placed all over the mansion to record the preparations secretly. Things appear to be going very well until Manoj finds out that his Taoji is still horny; one of his brothers is carrying on with Faujia, the maid; while the to-be bride, Piya, is planning to elope with her boyfriend, Rahul. A hilarious tussle ensues with Manoj attempting to stop the recording, while the TV producer and his staff are determined to complete this shoot at any and all costs.

a great idea, let down by bad editing and some poor acting
11 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

The movie is based around Asmi (Juhi Chawla) an aspiring TV show director. Asmi plans to make a reality show centered around a wedding in a joint family, only problem, there's only one such wedding in all of Mumbai in this season. Enter, the greatest joint family we have seen as yet. One so complicated, it beats Kyunki Saas Bhi!! What ensues is a fabulously complex story, of philandering uncles, a secret lover, an entertaining cat and the regular band baja.

The idea is great and completely genuine. However it is let down in a big way by shoddy editing. Much of the movie was only worth trimming. Acting be everyone apart from the leads was awful. Irfan and Juhi were brilliantly cast.

All in all, worth a one time watch, but nothing sparkling.
