Synopsis[edit]

The film revolves around three bachelors, Meet (Vivek Oberoi), Prem (Aftab Shivdasani) and Amar (Ritesh Deshmukh). Their lives are good until they get married and their lives turn to hell. Meet marries Anchal (Amrita Rao) who is obsessively possessive about her husband, Prem marries Geeta (Tara Sharma) who is overly religious and thus their sex life suffers, and Amar marries Bindiya (Genelia D'Souza) who is dominating and lives with her mother (Archana Puran Singh). The friends get together one night and try to think of a way to get away from their wives for some time & relive their fun bachelor days. The men set their sights on other women but eventually realize they have all been seeing the same girl, Monica (Lara Dutta). She blackmails them about revealing their affair to their wives for Rs.10 lakhs.

After a roller coaster filled with nonstop laughs and thrilled mayhem, the trio arrive at Monica's car with all the money, only to find her dead. In order to not be accused, they try to hide her body, interrupted by police officer Sikander (Ajay Devgan) who begins to suspect, and then starts following, them. What comes next, is a hilarious mystery on who Monica's killer is, and how she died. Or will the three idiots be arrested for her murder yet being innocent?
