A family (the Khullars), headed by papaji (Ram Kapoor), are so hell bent on making their daughter's wedding perfect that they decide to gift her would be husband a fully-loaded brand new Maruti.
Enter papaji’s beta Sameer (Saqib Saleem). In order to impress the woman of his dreams Jasleen (Rhea Chakraborty), he takes the car for a drive and promptly falls into a series of unfortunate incidents, with his friend (Prabal Panjabi). The first half was ok but it is in the second half that the film picks up pace.
Papaji always greets 'Smeer' (it’s the Punjabi way of pronouncing the name Sameer) with a mild gaali whenever he sees him. And by the end of the film you realise that papaji can be quite likable too. How the much coveted car is lost and ultimately found forms the story of the film.
A hilarious scene from Mere Dad Ki Maruti sums up the film in totality. A bride does a fully-clothed sexy dance and the following reactions take place: the jaws of most of the guests drops down the floor in shock (I didn't say literally silly!), the groom trying to hide his face, the bride's brother gulping a little, and the bride's mom beaming with pride at the near-scandalous moves.
At the end of it all this film is a film that will go down in history as one of the best Punjabi family based movie. Yes, it does have its hiccups but then which movie doesn't? Grab a tub of popcorn and enjoy this laugh riot.
