Storyline

Widowed Mrs. Saraswati Batra (Waheeda Rehman) has brought up three sons with a lot of care and love. Her eldest son Om (Anil Kapoor) is very honest and diligent; her two other sons Jai (Fardeen Khan), and Jagdish (Abhishek Bachchan) also live in the same house. Om looks after the family, and also looks after the business and the estate. Jai's interest is fast cars, and to the much disappointment of his family, decides to re-locate the United States of America, and gets married to a rich and snobish girl, Neetu (Urmilla Matondkar). Her mother (Lilette Dubey) strongly disapproves of Jai, and vehemently, though in vain, opposes the marriage. To make matters worse, Jai gets a job in the U.S. in a vehicle junkyard, much to the horror of his wife and his family. Jai must use this junkyard so that he can make the fastest car in the world. Jagdish is the spoiled brat of the family. He gets into trouble with the law, when he starts hacking computer data. This brings shame on the entire family,... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Originally Yash Raj Films wanted to rope in director Anupam Kher with his script and also wished to produce it, in a condition that the director managed to rope in Aamir Khan (Om), Shahrukh Khan (Jai), Salman Khan (Jagadish), Kajol (Ayesha), Rani Mukherji (Neetu)& Preity Zinta (Pooja) playing the leading characters. However, surprisingly, all the actors declined the film stating date problems and the project was eventually produced by Vashu Bhagnani and released by Sa Re Ga Ma HMV. See more »

Underappriciated Film,.
28 December 2004 | by HeragSee all my reviews

Anupam Kher is an Actor of great repute, and his debut directorial venture is absolutely brilliant. The Indian Media specially the imbeciles who praise Sharukh Khan and his band of morons of course will bad mouth this movie and the director since they have no class or aesthetics and if I go by their reviews I would miss seeing one of the best family movies in the recent times. The narration is heartwarming with some great acting by Anil Kapoor-I would say best of his career. Music by Anu Malik is just superb with his use of the Shehnai in the "Happy Happy" number. This is the best choreography that I have seen in the recent times which is not only classy but innately Indian. Abishek Bachchan has incredible potential if one scene (where he is accused of computer hacking ) is any indication. The problem with this particular shot is that the camera moves very fast-a minor flaw of the Debut director. The Photography is breathtaking ( Picnic). The movie in totality is a gem of a movie but the only problem is it does not appeal to the demented MTV Media reviewing Nerds who wouldn't know what to make of a movie like this.
