After Bhavesh, Parag, Parikshat, and Jayesh ridicule their Bangkok-based landlord, Kiska Meglani, he evicts them. Broke and with nowhere to go, the hapless foursome decide to pose as couples, with Bhavesh and Parag assuming the guise of voluptuous females, Karishma and Kareena respectively. They find a sympathetic landlord, Ballu Singh, who lets them move in. Subsequently, Jayesh finds employment in an architectural firm and assures his friends that their problems may well be resolved. But before that could happen, Ballu's wife, Sweety, comes to know that Kareena is pregnant, and the involvement of gangsters who want a signed deed from Ballu at any and all costs.

Nice laughter lines.
10 September 2009 | by bsdhamraitSee all my reviews

Four comic characters out for an accommodation hunt falls into intricate hurdles. Johnny Lever, the owner puts across a caveat,would only rent the place to couples. The guys give in to the condition laid by the owner and scrambles to materialize their wives. An average film with an average cast.

Johnny Lever never fails to amuse and entertain with his antics. But the tempo of the movie is lost in no time and dips very soon. There are no rib-tickling comedy here folks. Be prepared to get bored soon. An average movie with a below average comedy.

Paritosh Painter seems to have debuted on a slide. Let's pray his next direction bails him out.
