Premshankar, cons Mr. Pinto into buying a dilapidated flat to pay for expenses of the Happy Club over which he presides, much to the disapproval of his restaurateur father, Shivshankar, who wants him to wed Shakuntala Mishra. Premshankar's life will undergo many changes after he falls in love with Pinto's adopted daughter, Jenny. He believes that she also loves him, and even helps her to elope after her parents force her to wed wealthy Tony. Premshankar ends up in despair when he finds out that Jenny's true love is Canada-based Rahul, the son of wealthy politician, Pitambar Jalan. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

best 2009 bollywood comedy - andaz R.K.Santoshi ka!!
6 November 2009 | by mail-hvSee all my reviews

well if you think that raj kumar santoshi has recreated andaz apna apna's magic, answer is NO!! but the movie is worth to watch twice for RANBEER KAPOOR, some cracking comedy, romantic & emotional situations. Ranbeer has carried the movie all along on his shoulders with charming katrina kaif in a delightful manner. some of its parts are repetitive. The film is co-written and directed by raj kumar santoshi, salman khan is in special appearance, shot at scenic Ooty. its a funny romantic movie which reflects the true bollywood color after a long time. it is Prem's(Ranbir Kapoor) story who is a 9th standard drop-out from a middle class Hindu family. He falls in love with a Christian girl Jenny(Katrina Kaif). Prem whose main job is being the President of the Happy Club. The happy club hopes to make people happy but mostly its members boast about doing nothing. Jenny is a adopted orphan. Prem is never able to propose Jenny and finally finds out that Jenny loves Rahul(Upen Patel) but Jenny's parents wants her to get married to Tony. Santoshi keeps it light, fluffy and fun till the climax. The last scene on Jesus makes the best possible end. There is a real sweetness in the some scenes. Three out of five stars from my side.
