Storyline

Based in England, Nikhil Mathur is employed as an Investment Banker and has a idealist girlfriend in Radhika Awasthi. His friend, Jignesh Patel, works as a Security Guard in a mall and is the guardian of Veer, his late sister's son, and under close scrutiny of the Social Services Department. Global recession takes a toll on Nikhil - he not only loses his job but also his investments, while Jignesh gets fired for failing to prevent theft by a minor. Nikhil is unable to find employment and after Jignesh gets fired from yet another job, the duo end up working as male escorts with 'Desi Boyz' as Rocco and Hunter, and bring in enough income to keep them going. Radhika soon finds out and dumps Nikhil, while a Social Worker, Vikrant Mehra, takes custody of Veer and has him placed in a foster home. With their lives turned upside down, the duo blame each other and part company. Unable to even speak with Radhika, Nikhil is dismayed when he finds her in the company of a new boyfriend, Ajay Bapat... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

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.

Goofs

(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 »
