He approves of her, informs his elders and they begin preparations for the marriage. Subsequently he gets a rude awakening when Tanuja tells him that she already has a boyfriend and plans to marry him even against her parents' wishes. Manoj informs his parents, and they set about to see other girls for their son - albeit in vain - as he has his heart set on Tanuja, and is all set to return back unmarried. Manoj and Tanuja are fated to meet again in Kapurthala, Punjab, while attending the marriage of Jaspreet Singh Jassi and Payal Sinha. While Manoj hopes to win Tanuja's heart - he will face more rejection when she enlists his assistance to elope with another male. Written by

When Manu Sharma goes to Raja Avasthi's house for the first time to see Raja's sister for marriage, Raja's father introduces another girl 'Sapna' to Manu's father, as Raja's fiancé. Sapna neither appears nor is mentioned in the movie later; Yet, later Raja is seen trying to marry Tanu in a Court in Kapurthala. It should also be noted that Raja was the one to send 4-5 goons (via his another friend Ravi Kishan) to scare Manu when he first reaches Kanpur Station. It is confusing because Raja is already Engaged to be married to Sapna at that time. See more »
First half was brilliant, can't say same about the second one though!!!
I had no prior intentions of watching this movie on first day first show. Some of my friends were going to watch this, so I joined them. Having just watched a trailer, I set out to watch this film without any expectations. But, to my surprise this movie made me laugh a lot and by the interval most people were out of their seats clapping and laughing. Movie also had a spicy Indian flavor which mixed with great humor made for really some treat. But, soon after interval, it turned out that this was too good to be true. After interval, movie started taking sharp turns some of those were beyond Human understanding. This could have been a wonderful 100 minutes movie. Don't know why directors instead opted for stretching this movie so much so as to make it completely boring and quite predictable too in the end. But, you won't regret your bucks if you see it with your friends for first time. This movie had some awesome beats as well. Punjabi beats were just irresistible not to dance upon them. Do check out OST after watching this movie. Madhawan was awesome as ever. Kangana is a good actress as far as acting is concerned and she didn't disappoint. But, it was difficult to gage the kind of character she played, which turned out to be a bit frustrating. Award for special acting, if any, will go to "Deepak Dobriyal" who in the cast of Pappu delivers an excellent performance. He is the one guy who keeps movie one even in a supporting role. Jimmy Shergil in his guest role is awesome too. His performance was very realistic. Eijaz Khan in the role of Jassi is also quite good. Having said that, this movie could have been a real gem which it wasn't. This is kind of movie you would want to see and then forget. Those not familiar with Indian culture might get disappointed because, Indian flavor is what makes this movie enjoyable. I will rate this movie as an average one. 7 out of 10.
