Storyline

Twenty-something Sameer is a brat who thinks he can get away with anything. When he lands a lucky date with 'Chandigarh Ki Shakira', Jasleen, he decides to sneak out his Dad's brand new Maruti without a second thought. After a mad night at a pub, a fun drive around the famous gehri route and one peck on the cheek, Sameer ends up losing the car. The car was meant to be a gift for his sister on her wedding and is probably the only thing his stingy dad, Tej Khullar ever spent money on. With only three days to find it, he must ensure his dad doesn't get a whiff of what he has done. Else, he will be turned into butter chicken. Sameer's life will be turned upside down as he comes face-to-face with some insane characters like a bhai from chor bazaar, an old man with a rifle pointed at his nose and of course, the Chandigarh cops. Will he manage to woo the girl of his dreams? Will he find the car? Will his Dad find out? Written by Official source

Enjoyable!
27 March 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

The movie is more than what the poster or the title suggests. Mere Dad Ki Maruti is a Punjabi styled, comedy drama which focuses on comedy of errors rather than logical out-mapping.

Lead character is still raw & needs to draw more out of himself if he wants to stay in Bollywood. The VJ turned actor Rhea over-acted and shows how cuties fail to impress in reel. But her hotness and panache compensates for it. Ram Kapoor seems to have continued his role of 'Student Of The Year,' while the supporting cast is average. Ravi Kisan was wasted.

Storyline is pretty straightforward and after the interval, everything goes the usual predictable way but thank God, there is absence of cheap humor. If you carry your logical thinking for the sequences, then you may turn disappointed as the romance factor truly hits the divider with vague impact on the story as a whole. Performances are novice while the soundtrack truly boasts of a Punjabi dash. That sounded good. Songs are repetitive and plagiarized giving much emphasis to gaudy melodies...

BOTTOM LINE: The climax is truly the best scene of this movie. Although it is all predictable, but certain things made me laugh and I felt good. One time watch! But, if you hate Punjabi big fat weddings and drama related to it, then you should ignore this nice try.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
