Plot[edit]

A story about a troubled young businessman, Prakash (Saif Ali Khan) who is married to Sapna (Sonali Bendre). Prakash is ghar jamai of Rajiv Chopra (Dalip Tahil). Rajiv Chopra totally hates Prakash, and troubles him all the time. Prakash, who is fed up of being troubled by Chopra, then makes a plan to get Sapna kidnapped to make Rajiv Chopra feel the way he does. He hires two broke strugglers, Rahul (Fardeen Khan) and Harry (Aftab Shivdasani) who are to be fake kidnappers and kidnap Sapna.

The plan rides successfully, and Chopra believes every bit of it. Rahul and Harry demand Rs.1 crores as the ransom money, and the fooled Chopra agrees to pay. As the ransom money has been paid, Rahul and Harry set Sapna free and leave her in a forest, which is also part of Prakash's plan. Prakash arrives at the forest to pick up Sapna, however he realizes that she has been kidnapped again but this time by real kidnappers. This crime caper soon turns into one hilarious joy ride!

Reception[edit]

Sukanya Verma opined that the film was "mostly watchable for its bubbling enthusiasm and, of course, Aslambhai".[6] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama found the film "engaging, but in parts". He was of the view that the film's comedy was similar to that seen in Basu Chatterjee's films and both the actresses; Khanna and Bendre didn't have "enough scope" for acting.[7] Amaresh Misra of Outlook stated that Khanna and Bendre had been "wasted" in the film, which lacked of "innovative screenplay".[8]
