    Great comedy by all three paresh,suniel and akshay
    Paresh Rawal plays Chadha who in greed for dowry peddles his son (Chunky Pandey, looking too old for this role) around to rich, prospective businessmen. Lying and philandering come naturally to him, and he’s willing to go to new depths to get his son married into a rich family.
    Strangely, his outright demand for money is not shown to be out-of-the-ordinary, even as the girl’s father goes out of his way to placate him and arrange for the money.
    The money transaction is purely businesslike and at no point in time do any of the characters find this dowry demand objectionable. In fact, when one of the relatives from the girl’s side is mistaken to be a molester (don’t ask!), the girl’s father makes Chadha an offer of an extra 20-30 lakh to continue with the wedding.
    Such blatant incorporation of dowry is indeed shocking and disappointing; the government and NGOs can do all they want to put a stop to dowry but as long as films show this practice to be acceptable and a premise for a comedy, it’s a losing battle, really.
    Shakti Kapoor appears playing a constantly horny old man (full marks for casting), who engages a young prostitute (Neha Dhupia) to come into his room. Naturally, everyone mistakes her to be Anjali (Katrina) who was earlier to get engaged to Chadha’s son.
    Anjali didn’t accept the marriage as she’s in love with down-on-luck Nitin (Akshay) who is a driver to business magnate (Archana Puran Singh). He soon meets courier boy Ram (Suniel Shetty) who also can’t marry his wealthy girlfriend Manpreet (Sameera Reddy) as he’s poor.
    Together Nitin and Ram hatch a ransom plan that predictably goes awry. Oh, did we mention that this entire drama unfolds on the streets and posh hotel hallways of Singapore where, conveniently, almost all characters, including the hotel staff and cops, are Indian. Throughout the film, a fitter-than-fit Archana Puran Singh is called a budhiya (oldie) by a 40-something Akshay.
