Storyline

Singapore-based Nitin Bankar's education was paid for by his employer, Kuljeet Kaur, and he, after the passing of his father, works as an unpaid maid-chauffeur for her until such time he pays off whatever she had spent. He is in love with gorgeous Anjali Kakkad but her father refuses to give his consent for this alliance. Desperate to get out of this situation, Nitin attempts suicide, albeit in vain, and then cooks up a scheme to abduct Kuljeet's pet, Mulchand, demand a hefty ransom, and then marry Anjali. He seeks assistance from his equally deadbeat-courier deliveryman, Ram Mishra, who wants to wed tall and pretty Manpreet Oberoi, and both book a room in Pan Pacific Hotel. However, Murphy's Law and a host of assorted characters get involved - resulting in hilarious and uncontrollable chaos. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Just OK movie
28 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie is funny but not in the same league as Hera Pheri. I have seen Priyadarshan's same movie made in Malayalam and found that one funnier. This movie was good in spurts, but overall it was a bit bland. The main reason could be because I felt that not much thought went into the the dialogues; so some of the scenes looked part of an improvisation exercise. Therefore it lacked the necessary punch. The initial song was excellent and so was Neha Dhupia's "Haughty Naughty" number. The trio Akshay, Paresh & Suneil did their usual thing. Suneil was a bit funnier this time. While Katrina, Sameera & Chunky didn't have much to do; they were there just for the ambiance.

I found the scenes leading up to the climax good and on a slightly bigger scale than the original movie. The movie could have had a slightly better ending. To rap it up I would say even though it wasn't a rip roaring laugh riot, it is still a good time pass movie.
