Storyline

London-based owner of 'Gaylord Indian Restaurant' Pinu Patel travels to India along with his cousin, Rajat, Kavita Kaki and Jaisukh Kaka, in order to meet with Payal and get married. The couple seemingly approve of each other, but at the last minute she rejects him. Dejected he returns home and faces rejection once again - this time at the hands of Mili. Quite depressed, he is then compelled to hire two Chandigarh-based employees, Renu and Kamlesh, as Book-keeper and Cook respectively. Kamlesh and he start hanging out together to such an extent that Pinu is compelled to question himself as to if he is a homosexual. Anxious to prove himself, he must now hook up with a woman - and feels Renu to be ideal. His world comes crashing around him when he finds her in Kamlesh's arms - leaving open the question as to what his fate is going to be in the near future. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

What can be said about this? Well! For one thing is that it is almost on the same line as "Dostana" as it deals with a similar theme and it is also a good comedy which deals with one man who seems to think that he is gay when he hires a man and a female to work in his famous restaurant after being rejected.

Starring Vinay Pathak, Gul Panag, Ketki Dave, Rasik Dave, Siddharth Makkar, Anuj Choudhary and Achla Sachdev, written by Anahata and is based on the story by Uttam Gada and is directed by Parvati Balagopalan.

We last saw Vinay Pathak as Shahrukh Khan's friend and stylist in "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi," but here he has performed rather well in the role of a main character and has gone on to show his versatility, supported by Ketki Dave, who, many will remember from Balaji TV series, "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi's" "Daksha" and who also made a brief appearance as Saif Ali Khan's mother in "Kal Ho Naa Ho." And what can possibly go wrong with such two comic actors, who are well supported by the others and in particular Achla Sachdev and Siddharth Makkar and Anuj Choudhary, who have also performed well! This did and was bound to lead to some hilarious scenes, which many may consider as of "adult" nature but on the whole they are decent and clean. But with Rasik Dave and Gul Panag, I felt could have done more, as they seemed to be put onto one side of the movie, but it could have made it a bit more interesting if this had not been the case.

Parvati Balagopalan, the director, has handled this comedy and the subject well. But on the whole, this movie is worth watching once but some may think it appropriate not to do so with their kids.
