Fool & Final (stylized as Fool N Final) is a 2007 Indian comedy caper film, directed by Ahmed Khan. The film has an all-star cast including Sunny Deol, Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia, Sameera Reddy and Vivek Oberoi in the lead roles. Paresh Rawal, Johnny Lever, Sharmila Tagore, Arbaaz Khan, Om Puri and Chunkey Pandey have supporting roles, whilst acclaimed boxer Mike Tyson appeared in the promos & film credits.
It was released on 1 June 2007. The film's title is a spoof on the usual tagline, "Full & Final" which means "final" in other words. Most of the film was shot in Brazil, Dubai and Muscat. The film is a remake of the British film Snatch, with which it shares the tagline too (Stealing stones and Breaking bones).
A million-worth diamond discovered in India is stolen and sent to Dubai. To pick up the diamond from Dubai Airport, Rocky (Chunkey Pandey) is sent. However, a dreaded underworld don, Moscow Chikna (Arbaaz Khan) kidnaps Rocky and steals the diamond from him. After completing his job, Moscow Chikna kills Rocky and flees. The story then twists to another underworld don, JD (Zakir Hussain) also has his eyes on the stolen diamond. To steal the diamond from Moscow Chikna, JD sends a team of foolish robbers, including Raja (Shahid Kapoor), Tina (Ayesha Takia), Chobey (Paresh Rawal) and an dimwit pilot Puttu (Johnny Lever). As they fail to rob the diamond, they witness Moscow Chikna being murdered by an unknown gangster named Gunmaster G9. They manage to steal the diamond, but refuse to hand it over to JD. They escape from JD's trap, who then sends out gangsters looking for the four idiots. To get them out of trouble, comes in Raja's uncle Munna (Sunny Deol), who is also added to JD's wanted list. On top of all this, a bankrupt gambler Luckee (Vivek Oberoi) is stalking Munna to make him fight in a boxing match. Between all this confusion, the question is, who will get the diamond?
