After an encounter with a gangster named Khan, who finds out that Shankar has stolen a valuable item that belonged to his son, Jamal, sends Shankar fleeing to Bangkok, Thailand, along with a team of medical professionals. He manages to conceal the item amongst medical supplies, and poses as a medical professional himself. He blunders his way as a medico, arousing suspicion, especially by Dr. Rati, compounded by the arrival of Khan's son, Jamal, and his romance with Jasmine, a volunteer and a part-time masseuse, She, too, is attracted to him - without knowing that this attraction will soon get her arrested by the Thai Police, leaving Shankar virtually between a rock and a hard place - he must now decide to return to India and be killed by Khan, or stay on in Bangkok and be arrested - this time for theft of medical supplies.

Disappointed!!!!

Bombay to Bangkok is the story of a small time cook in a dingy restaurant named Shankar (Shreyas Talpade). Faith leads him to Bangkok... well actually local Mafia goons makes him escape because he had stolen the money that they had received. There Shankar meets Jasmine (Lina Christianson). She is a masseur at a local club. Shankar falls in love with her. Because Shankar pretends he is a doctor and the Mafia keeps on chasing him Shankar hides the bag of money into one of the medical supplies going with the team of doctors that he is a part of now. Now after reaching Bangkok Shankar must take the help of his lady love to get the money hidden into one of the numerous medical supply boxes... Thats Bombay to Bangkok for you. The rest is all running around (read riding around)and some poor attempts at making this a comedy. The only highlights of the film are the songs that plays in the background whenever Shankar meets Jasmine and his dialogue "Ab bas mooh mat kholna!" (Now just don't open your mouth!) whenever Jasmin walks towards him because Jasmin cannot speak English properly and the only words that come out of her mouth are in Thai. Overall just a time pass film, that too if you have nothing else to do. Its hard to believe this as a venture of Nagesh Kukunoor. The same guy who gave us films like Hyderabad blues and Dor. Nagesh should stick to making 'his kind' of cinema and not try to be commercial. He has just proved he is not good at it at all. Good acting by Shreyas (as usual) and the man who played his friend 'Rashminder singh' or Rashes. The guy who plays KMK, the mafia Don's son definitely deserves special mention too. Other than that the whole cast of the film is a waste. Lina has a long way to go as far as acting is concerned. Lets face it - she is too wooden to act. Go watch it... if you have absolutely nothing else to do. NOTHING.
