Storyline

While on her way to Mumbai airport to board a plane to Delhi, a busy business executive, who employs over 600 employees, gets stuck in a traffic jam, and misses her flight. She blames her predicament on an auto-rickshaw passenger, Manu Gupta, and is appalled when the latter is her co-passenger on a budget-airline. The flight is diverted to Jaipur and with no flights available for several hours, she ends up sharing a rental car with Manu - but matters get even worse when the car breaks down, and both end up spending the night at a cockroach-ridden restaurant. At daybreak, she ends up having no luggage, no car, and forced to ride a camel-cart with Manu, who she cannot stand anymore. But things get even worse when she will find her money has been stolen; the duo will be arrested for traveling on a train without tickets; and end up hitching a ride from men who have just broken out of jail!!

nice movie
19 May 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

before sitting in cinema hall i was thinking that i am going to watch jab we met part 2, but when i read the cast i got to know that it would be a different movie, because Lara Dutta and Vinay Pathak were together but after watching whole movie i realized i have been cheated this movie is copied from Plain, Train, Automobile. Any way i am not against copied movies because some time director use his own mind to copy scenes,and i like that. so friends, movie is good, time pass, one time watch, but don't confuse yourself with director's idea to show Jaipur and Rajasthan, rajastan is not like that. there are two flaws in movie, first of all jhunjunu is not between Ajmer and Delhi and there in no flyover in behror, even people of rajasthan are damn friendly. now lets talk about the movie, The first half of the movie is quite interesting Mr. Vinay pathak was the best fit for that role m not sure about lara dutta because she was looking aged in that movie, i like her in comedy role not the serious one. the entry of akshay kumar was awesome but the dialogue delivery was just OK, the second half is little boring but when climax is good some how it was not expected climax. so guys go for this movie if you like different movie and please don't watch plain train, automobile before that it will spoil your fun :)
