He also has anther tenant named Shyam, who has come to the city to look for a job in his late father's place, but is unable to find employment. The three men quarrel amongst themselves frequently.

A great Comedy movie
29 July 2003 | by zaheeralviSee all my reviews

Wow, This is what I call a great comedy in 2-3 hours, it will make you laugh as you are suppose to laugh. Great acting by Paresh Rawal will make you feel that he is the best for the role given to him and he did justice with what has been given to him. Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar has done there part very good, but I think the crown for the movie goes to Paresh Rawal.

A good movie, with good story and excellent comedy. Its a must watch for people who like to enjoy there spare time.
