On the day he receives an award, arrogant, wealthy, and self-centered Ranbeer Talwar has an accident with his BMW that results in the death of the parents of four young children. Ranbeer is arrested and, a year later, sentenced: look after all the four children until they reach the age of 18 or else face 20 years behind bars without any parole. Ranbeer agrees to do so, not realizing that the children have a plan of their own - to avenge the death of their parents by ensuring that he breaches his undertaking and ends up in jail. Written by
Several references are made to the film's crew throughout the film.

The last film from Yashraj, "Tashan," had sent shivers down my spine and made me think that this company had finally run out of good ideas result was that it was a massive flop. But with this one, I have managed to regain some faith in the films that Yashraj is now releasing.
The country's top industrialist and loner (not his will as he loses everyone he loves), causes a car accident in which parents of four children are killed. At the end of the hearing, the judge, instead of sentencing the industrialist, orders him to take care of the dead couple's children. However, the four children have other plans in mind.
Directed and written by the "Hum Tum" director, Kunal Kohli, the movie stars Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Amisha Patel and Rishi Kapoor and is produced by Aditya Chopra.
The story, though well written and directed, does have echoes of Walt Disney's "Mary Poppins," which starred Julie Andrews in a similar but not quite the same, role as the one portrayed by Rani Mukherjee. There are chances that she will probably receive an award for this role, if not then, she is in a very good position for a nominee. Saif, on the other hand, has also handled his role very well. But I must say that it was a change to see Rishi Kapoor in a complete different role.
Conclusion: A good family entertainer that can be watched with kids.
