Storyline

When a child falls into the well of the temple and Abbas breaks the temple's lock to save the child. When Prithviraj arrives at the scene, Ravi says Abbas's name as Abhishek Bachchan to avoid religious controversies of a temple being broken open by a Muslim. Prithviraj hires Abhishek Bachchan (Abbas) and is happy with his work, but Ravi and his friends have to come up with a new plan when Prithviraj spots Abbas celebrating Eid as a Muslim. Abbas and the others convince Prithviraj that the one celebrating Eid was actually 'Abbas', an effeminate man and classical Kathak dancer. Things become worse for Abbas and Ravi when Prithviraj kindly hires Abbas for teaching Kathak to his sister Radhika (Prachi Desai). The more Abbas tries to manage his dual life without letting Prithviraj know, the more he has to lie to cover up other lies; this forms the crux of the story.

Laughed out Loud!!
8 July 2012 | by jm00888See all my reviews

Yes!! this movie is awesome, and with very good comedy. In short movie has a good story, the crew is excellent, and fantastic acting by Ajay Devgn, and Abhishek Bachchan. Sometimes you just to have come to cinema with open mind. Don't over-think much about this film, as it just goes with the flow :). Ajay Devgan and Rohit shetty pair once again proved that only this pair can make the best commercial movies. Ajay Devgn's acting and comedy( just mainly of using wrong English words) is too good. Abhishek Bachchan's acting timing is also very good. Its a full entertaining package for everybody with family. Prachi Desai looks cute in the movie. This movie is going to be a super-hit. Awesome 10 out of 10!
