This is not the kinda stuff that dreams are made of. It's not even the kinda stuff that movies are made of. But that's another matter. When Mahek (Richa Pallod) comes to stay with Sunny's (Rakesh Bapat) family in England, you already know where this one is going. Down the toilet. Anyhoo, Sunny's part of this khandaan that comes complete with Chacha, Chachi, Ma, Behen, Tau, Pitaji, and, to round off, a Dadimaa.
The family is quite dysfunctional, with everyone in a state of complete disconnect with their Indian values and culture. Their acting is in a state of disconnect with the script, too. But don't let that fool you into thinking they are doing nothing. They are really busy at the cellular level.
Sunny is an aspiring script writer/actor, and that, he believes, gives him the license to stretch his facial muscles so hard that tiny dimples are formed, and to curl up his nose, in a desperate bid to look pretty.
Mahek, for her part, goes around looking like everyone's mum. She entices the Maa and the Bhabhi to keep the karwa chauth vrat, hence allowing for an excuse to burst into song, she makes the Behen see that her gora toy-boy's up to no good, thus allowing for the mandatory lecture on bharatiya sabhyata, and she gets the alcoholic Uncle off the sauce, thereby adding five more minutes of roll to the flick.
Confessions of love are made, and the gods are invoked. Melodrama happens and Dadimaa passes on. More melodrama happens and skeletons come tumbling out of the closet. Mahek is not the good doctor's niece. Gasp! She is an orphan who is only days away from death. Gasp! Now what happens? Will she live? Will the movie end if she doesn't? By now, you are past caring. The movie has sapped everything outta you, and you are uncomfortably numb, just waiting for the pain to end.
All said and done, this is the kinda movie that brings a smile to your face. Especially, when it ends. In all fairness, though, Richa Pallod seems to have done a decent job under the absolute banality of the script. Rakesh Bapat seemed quite uninspired, and Kader Khan (as Sunny's father) was just going through the motions.
Well, go on home and sleep it off. Like you would with a bad hangover.
