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 ...

Hilarious!
17 September 2012 | by (New Delhi, India) – See all my reviews

My Mom was pretty eager to watch this movie as it is based on a middle-aged couple; so i finally took the time out yesterday and went to watch this with her instead of the infamous release - Barfi. I liked the trailers pretty much because the story seemed different. So expectations were there for the movie to be good enough. And well, I wasn't disappointed. it is HILARIOUS, a complete laugh-riot. My mother couldn't stop laughing 80% of the time. And neither could I most of the time; and this is coming from a 20-year old who HATES Bollywood humor (which is mostly toilet-humor), so hardly watch any Bollywood comedy (other than Priyadarshan). So you can sense, it is NOT toilet humor and a decent comedy. Boman Irani is fantastic, Farah Khan is really good, the supporting cast worthy too! Just go watch for a light, happy watch. And encourage more such movies to come out. :)
