Storyline

Singapore-based Nitin Bankar's education was paid for by his employer, Kuljeet Kaur, and he, after the passing of his father, works as an unpaid maid-chauffeur for her until such time he pays off whatever she had spent. He is in love with gorgeous Anjali Kakkad but her father refuses to give his consent for this alliance. Desperate to get out of this situation, Nitin attempts suicide, albeit in vain, and then cooks up a scheme to abduct Kuljeet's pet, Mulchand, demand a hefty ransom, and then marry Anjali. He seeks assistance from his equally deadbeat-courier deliveryman, Ram Mishra, who wants to wed tall and pretty Manpreet Oberoi, and both book a room in Pan Pacific Hotel. However, Murphy's Law and a host of assorted characters get involved - resulting in hilarious and uncontrollable chaos. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

This film is for smart people, and it is under-rated.
3 June 2012 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

i am surprised that this film has such a low rating. I am rating it a 9.

It has lots of famous Indian actors in it, and everyone is very funny in it.

The reason why it has a low rating, it is probably because every character in it is connected to others one way or another. So if you don't pay attention to who they are, what they did, you will quickly get lost. If you can't understand who they are, then obviously you will lost interest very quickly.

that is why i say in order to appreciate this comedy, you have to be an intelligent person. it is not for common people who have short attention span.

Of course, what happened in the film is improbable in real life. It is just a fun entertaining comedy, you will laugh for sure.
