Storyline

Karan, Tanzing and Chandu complete their college studies and join hands with a black-marketeer, Archie, who gets them to travel to Bangkok for money-laundering purposes. En route they meet with leggy Jaipur-based Bulbul, and after the completion of this mission, the foursome decide to put their heads together to get rich quickly. Karan disappoints his father, Sajjan, by giving up on getting an MBA Degree, and the four take their success to New York where they proceed to scam businesses with considerable success; but as the money starts pouring in, so too does problems with alcohol, gambling, and bitterness between members of the group.

Trivia

While filming the sequence for the film's title song on March 22nd 2010, Shahid Kapoor reportedly refused to wear a white vest despite director Parmeet Sethi's and producer Aditya Chopra's insistence and the fact that this had been previously agreed upon. The differing parties eventually agreed to compromise on a half-sleeve white tee-shirt and filming could resume. See more »

Boring . . . . .
10 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The opens with an interesting voice-over that tells us about the lead played by Shahid kapoor as he begins to describe Mumbai or Bombay as it was then called in the nineties. Little do we know is that the voice-over is one of the few interesting things that will happen in the movie over its two and a half hour runtime. The movie is about a bunch of nobodies just fresh out of college trying to earn the proverbial quick buck. They have amongst them a schemer who realizes that ideas and not capital are the cornerstone for a business. They begin to earn money and make use of the extremely high import tax on branded shoes. Now at this point in the movie audiences will believe that they are in for a good movie that will have thrills and will be at par with one of those good Hollywood blockbusters. But they would be mistaken. At little over an hour into the movie the plot that had been chugging along begins to derail with the four head on to America to try their fortunes. The plot begins to fall into the same ole' pattern where there is a fight and everything becomes so predictable that it becomes almost embarrassing to watch. Parmeet Sethi writes and directs his debut feature in a very half handed manner. What could have been a great movie becomes embarrassing. He had a good idea and capital but he still failed. Maybe business need more than that. They need good execution. At least the dialogue in parts was funny . The acting was average. Anushka Sharma could barely play the part of the macho tomboy from Jaipur. It's as if there are only two girls in India. The homely kind and the one who is like Anushka Sharma in this movie. Shahid is busy trying to become more like Shahrukh Khan with each successive movie. And also continuing with the exact same performance in each movie. The other two are pretty okay since they didn't have much to do anyway.

If it's ever coming on t.v. and you are really bored give this movie a watch but other than that there is not much going for the movie.
