Storyline

It was love at first sight for unemployed Ashish Khanna and Rani Bhalla at a cold drink stall. When Rani introduces Ashish to her businessman dad, Tau, and mom, they unanimously frown upon this alliance, until Ashish promises to get a job, save enough money, buy a flat, etc.. Ashish does get a small job with Izzat Papads, and then also starts selling steroids out of the back of a van. He gets noticed by a Ad-firm owner, and gets hired. Soon he has all the luxuries that he had always dreamed of. When the Bhallas come to know about this, they decide to welcome him as their son-law, and a lavish engagement party takes place. It is then Ashish finds out that he has cancer, and he begins to create misunderstandings between him and Rani. He tries becoming an alcoholic, but that is considered normal with the Bhalla family; he confesses to Rani that he has loved Sania, a model with ad-agency, which is welcomed by Rani as being truthful and honest. But when Rani notices that he has put up ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One of the Dumbest movie ever, not so bad
27 June 2006 | by roysidSee all my reviews

This movie is total nonsense. But sometimes total nonsense works. All the characters are acting so dumb that I wonder at the end all will say, hey it was all a plot to fool the hero.

Plot outline is this. Ashish (Akshayee Khanna) from doing window cleaning, selling malish on road became creative director in ad agency earning multi millions so that his sweethearts(Ayesha Takia) father agrees to give his daughter.

After engagement, he overhears his doctor on phone mentioning that his young patient has cancer. And so he tries all bad things so that his fiancée hates him, including an affair with a model Sonia (Mallika Sherawat). Anyway Sonia has a brother Anna(Sunil Shetty) who lives in Malaysia and is a big don. Anna's pet dialogue is "Anna, Choubish ghanta chakanna" (Anna is alert all 24 hours).

Now Ashish can't escape the clutches of Anna even if he wants to get back to Ayesha.

The movie is so stupid that you just relax. Somehow, this feels better than forced comedy like "malamal weekly". Akshayee Khanna does a great job here as usual. He is one of the most natural actors and comedy suits him well. Surprisingly Mallika does a good job. Sunil Shetty(Anna) had a good time too.
