Storyline

Farhad Pastakia (Boman Irani) has a dream job as a bra-and-panty salesman. Except that he is a 45-year old Parsi bachelor still living with his overbearing mother and grandmother. But it's not like he's stopped trying. Desperate to get him married, Farhad's mother drags him to see women and even to embarrassing Parsi matrimony services. In the midst of all the daily humdrum, Farhad meets the woman of his dreams: Shirin Fugawala ('Farah Khan'), who drops by his store. Shirin, who works at the Parsi Trust, hits it off with Farhad from the start. Everything seems to be perfect and Farhad gets ready to introduce Shirin to his mother. But mummy becomes the villain in their story when she discovers that Shirin is the devious Parsi Trust Secretary who got the illegal water tank in their home demolished. The water tank being the 'aakhri nishaani' of Farhad's late father doesn't help matters. The ups and downs in Shirin-Farhad's relationship and how the two try to make it work is the rest of ...

Sheer waste of Time...no story and confused direction
25 August 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It was a sheer waste of 2 hrs of weekend morning. There is no story. Its the same of Bolly wood script twisted slightly modified to give it a new look. Seems none of the youngsters were ready to do the movie with the original script so they modified it to make it a love story for two middle aged folks.

There was not development of the characters.

The director had no clue on what he/she was trying to make. It was not a comedy for sure.The uncle thrown in to add some humor fails miserably in doing so.

Farah Khan should stick to what she does better. A person who has undergone a Botox treatment can give better expression than her.

The only saving grace was Boman Irani, but with such a pathetic script even he could not do much.
