Storyline

The film begins in Canada, travels to Banaras and eventually makes its way to Punjab. The Father Son duo of Dharam Singh and Gajodhar Singh (Dharmendra and Bobby Deol) are the biggest conmen in Banaras. Their happy go lucky existence involves drinking and pulling off hilarious cons on unsuspecting people. The only hitch in their perfect albeit notorious life arrives in the form of Paramveer Singh Dhillon (Sunny Deol). A brawny and honest NRI from Vancover, Paramveer lands up in Banaras claiming to be Gajodhar's elder brother separated at childhood. The duo willingly accepts Paramveer into their fold only to exploit his muscle power to serve their con games. Meanwhile Gajodhar falls in love with Saheba (Kulraj Randhawa), a beautiful Sardarni from Punjab. As their romance reaches its peak, her brothers arrive and forcibly take her away. Paramveer saves the day with a crazy plan to win the girl back for Gajodhar which leads them to the rustic heartlands of Punjab. What follows is a ... Written by Anonymous

Entertaining? Yes Sir!
25 January 2011 | by MourkeSee all my reviews

If Deols were looking to redeem themselves from the disaster that was 'Apne', they certainly have with this one. The movie makes great use of Sunny's He-Man image with exaggerated but visually stunning action sequences(with a sensational Dhol+Electronic Guitar background music which they should have released with the album), Bobby's energy and Dharmender's mere presence on the scene.

First half, though, not nearly as mad as the second, is helped by Two good item numbers and Johnny Lever's cameo. Second half is riot. When all the Punjabi characters with their Punjabiness come to the fore. Anupam Kher is impeccable as ever in his comic timing. The Canada obsessed cousin was hilarious along with the Family friend, the Flashy clothes+Goggle sporting character. Kulraj Randhawa is cute and efficient. But undoubtedly, its Mukul Dev's drunkard guy that gets the best scenes and dialogs. Amongst others, Emma Brown- the wife that scares living daylights out of Sunny Deol of all people and the kids, especially the smaller one(with his limited vocabulary syndrome) are a treat.

10/10 as I went there to get entertained and I was.
