With their lives turned upside down, the duo blame each other and part company.

The story of Akshay Kumar and his nephew is heavily influenced by the plot of Adam Sandler starrer Big Daddy. The scene in the beginning where he enters Nick Mathur's Birthday bash and the surprise gets wasted is a straight pick up from Big Daddy where Adam is shown to be a irritating slacker just like Akshay's character.

(around 1 hour and 35 minutes) Nikhil Mathur finished talking to his ex-girlfriend. He should have walked towards the steps because that is where his guitar and dog were, but he was walking towards a dead end. See more »
While the trailers suggested it to be another "Shout-it-out-loud" Akshay Kumar movie, it came up as a pleasant surprise. The punches were strong and the timing was right. The combination of Akshay Kumar and John works perfectly fine with the two hottesties of Bollywood not leaving any scope for anymore glamor. Some of the dialogs, you just won't forget (main 6 feet ka hoon aur tum 5 feet 8 inch ki lagti ho. we look great together). Kudos to the writer to effectively tying up the UK job losses issue with the story of the movie. Besides the four leads, commendable performances by Sanjay Dutt, Anupam Kher and the SILENCER (Omi Vaidya). After a long time, comes a movie from Akki which is worth second watch and I bet you will still LOL!!! Songs like Make some noise for the Desi Boyz, Jakh Maar Ke and Subah Hone Na De are just cheery on top.
Definitely the best entertainer of the year and a must-watch for everyone.
