Storyline

Using their wits, Ganpatrao "Babubhai" Apte, Ghanshyam "Shyam", and Raju find themselves wealthy beyond their imagination. They each have a car, a palatial house with a huge swimming pool, that Babubhai is yet to familiarize himself with, and a very easy life. Then Raju finds out that he can double his wealth in 21 days, and meets with an attractive young woman named Anuradha from an agency in Bombay's business district. She informs him that the minimum investment is one Crore, and Raju quickly agrees to invest this money. He dupes another man by the name of Pappu into parting with 50 Lakhs, and the rest of the money comes through by getting Shyam and Babu to sign away their respective investments. After 21 days when the trio go to collect their doubled wealth, they find that Anuradha and her company have disappeared. Devastated, they move out of their bungalow and are now living in a shanty room in a Chawl when they get a visit from Pappu, who wants his money back, as he owes this ...

chronic laughter attack!
12 June 2006 | by shajjo123See all my reviews

i saw this film last night and when it finished it got a big clapping send off from the audience. speaks volumes!! i think on the whole, with some reservations, this is more evenly paced and humorous than the original. however it does have its own demerits namely that this time the famous trio have been reduced to cartoon characters. there is a lot more fun but at the same time they all go over the top. this was the beauty of the original. they were all simple and believable characters. but situational comedy has been replaced by sheer slapstick. another thing there are a lot of references to Brit film lock stock. that was a put off. also i think paresh rawal needs to give it a break. he is the funny man yet again and boy he is good at it, but i am sure i don't want to watch him again in a funny character in near future. on the flip side, the chemistry between the three was amazing. in fact its their constant bickering that keeps redeeming the film time after time. suniel shetty was alright, more like a catalyst for the other two superior actors do their job. akshay kumar, well, what can i say?? his unbridled zealousness raises the film by leaps and bounds. he was in his home territory and like paresh rawal will have you in splits. rest of the cast did their part well. on the whole a great film for escapism!
