Action/Adventure, Comedy

A tsunami of mistaken identities results when two friends (Ritesh Deshmukh, Shreyas Talpade) enlist two rascals (Akshay Kumar, John Abraham) to sort out their marriage plans. Four guys courting four girls makes for quite a romantic traffic jam, and placating four prospective father-in-laws increases the complications. At one point, a character even brings out a whiteboard and the cast’s photographs to try and explain it all. Akshay and Abraham have teamed up for comedy before, and their goofy chemistry is a highlight, although the younger guys are also funny. There is chloroforming, conning and a crocodile with a toothache, but not nearly enough songs, although the kaleidoscope of pastel tuxedos in “Papa to Band Bajaye” evokes Busby Berkeley’s nutty touch. Surrendering to the silliness makes for an enjoyable viewing, but this won’t garner any year-end awards.
