Storyline

After Bhavesh, Parag, Parikshat, and Jayesh ridicule their Bangkok-based landlord, Kiska Meglani, he evicts them. Broke and with nowhere to go, the hapless foursome decide to pose as couples, with Bhavesh and Parag assuming the guise of voluptuous females, Karishma and Kareena respectively. They find a sympathetic landlord, Ballu Singh, who lets them move in. Subsequently, Jayesh finds employment in an architectural firm and assures his friends that their problems may well be resolved. But before that could happen, Ballu's wife, Sweety, comes to know that Kareena is pregnant, and the involvement of gangsters who want a signed deed from Ballu at any and all costs.

A great comedy for everyone
12 June 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A great Directorial Debut for Paritosh. After Dhamaal (which was again an amazing film), Paritosh couldn't have delivered better. I think a better cast could have helped the movie to get more eye balls. Shreyas, Javed, Johnny Lever, Chunkey have delivered good performances. Ashish, Vatsal could have been avoided. The humor is good. Specially the scene when Neha comes home to meet Ashish is hilarious. Even the pregnancy scene is damn good. The climax was not a novelty (Something similar to Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron) but still works for me. Over all a entertaining film. You will have fun. Don't think too much, Its a comedy not a thought provoking film.
