Honeymoon Travels is an off-beat drama weaving together the stories of 6 couples on their honeymoons on the same tourist bus. There are old-timers Nahid & Oscar on their second marriages, reflective and forgiving of live. Then there's the Gujrati couple Hitesh and Shilpa who can't get anywhere near each other without scrabbling, the super-compatible Parsi couple Aspi and Zara, and the oddball NRI husband Bunty with his desi, fun-loving wife Madhu. An uptight and insecure Bengali man, Partho, is very much in love with his beautiful, free-spirited wife Milly. And rounding off the sextet are the Kapoors, the Punjabi couple comprising of talkative Pinky and contemplative Vicky. The film starts off with the start of the bus journey, and a couple of red herrings, like Shilpa crying her eyes out at going on the honeymoon. Then there's an opinionated bus driver, and a mysterious motor-bike rider following the bus. And while everything looks lovey-dovey in the beginning, with familiarity and ... Written by

John Abraham was originally set to play the role of Arjun Rampal, but he could not do so since the dates of Ravi Chopra's 'Babul' had gone haywire due to Bachchan's health problem. So the role was later performed by Arjun Rampal. See more »
'Honeymoon Travels Private Ltd' is about 6 newly wed couples who come together during their honeymoon: There is a Bengali couple that comprises of a conservative husband (Kay Kay) and a ready to get wild wife (Raima). There is an envious seemingly perfect couple (Abhay Minissha), college sweethearts (Amisha Karan), an imperfect Gujarati couple Hitesh (Ranvir) and Shilpa (Dia Mirza) forms, a foreigner Richie (Vikram Chatwal) married to a hyperactive Bombay girl (Sandhya Mridul) and an older couple (Boman Irani Shabana Azmi). The rest of the plot consists of their story together during this traveling period, their self discovery and their true feelings for one another.
Kay Kay is excellent as the slightly shy and conservative husband. His dance in 'Sajnaji Vari Vari' is awesome and remains to be one of the most memorable scenes of the movie. He does pleasantly surprise with his comedic talents (since he's more known for his serious movies). Raima Sen is brilliant and she shows us a sexy side. Shabana Azmi never lets you down and after a long time, Boman Irani finally gives a decent performance (he's not loud nor annoying this time). Abhay Deol and Minisha Lamba share a nice chemistry, though they tend to be a little over the top. Amisha Patel succeeds in annoying and Karan Khanna hardly does anything. Ranvir Shorey makes impresses with a brief role while Dia Mirza doesn't. Sandhya Mridul is charming and wonderful while Vikram Chatwal is wooden.
Kagti's direction is decent and she tells the story well. However, there's something missing in the ending. It seems incomplete. One may wonder why such a finale was chosen.
All in all, this is a light hearted comedy and it does provide some laughs along with a few serious moments. Well, serious enough to keep you engaged, not to break down in tears. The 6 stories are nicely combined and the actors share a very comfortable chemistry. Something to enjoy with friends.
