Storyline

Singapore-based Nitin Bankar's education was paid for by his employer, Kuljeet Kaur, and he, after the passing of his father, works as an unpaid maid-chauffeur for her until such time he pays off whatever she had spent. He is in love with gorgeous Anjali Kakkad but her father refuses to give his consent for this alliance. Desperate to get out of this situation, Nitin attempts suicide, albeit in vain, and then cooks up a scheme to abduct Kuljeet's pet, Mulchand, demand a hefty ransom, and then marry Anjali. He seeks assistance from his equally deadbeat-courier deliveryman, Ram Mishra, who wants to wed tall and pretty Manpreet Oberoi, and both book a room in Pan Pacific Hotel. However, Murphy's Law and a host of assorted characters get involved - resulting in hilarious and uncontrollable chaos. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not that Great......Has it's funny moments but......
13 December 2009 | by ayushdSee all my reviews

Alright when i first went to see this movie it was a full house in the theatre and i could not get a ticket and instead i watched kurbaan but since de dana dan had a full house it increased my expectations for the movie and then when i went to see it the next week..........Disappointment, seriously i was expecting this to be a quality movie after reading the reviews but what happened.

It isn't a Kambakht Ishq but still it could be close because it gets a little stupid and did i mention at one point i was not even able to follow the story line because it got so confusing but then the reason it isn't a kambakht ishq is because first of all it isn't entirely stupid and it does have it's funny moments and overall it really is not a must watch but if you have nothing else to do i guess go watch it.
