Plot[edit]

Avtar Singh Bajwa, his wife and their twin sons meet with a car accident, which kills Avtar and his wife though the twins survive. They are sent to Avtar's brother Kartar, a confirmed bachelor, who gives first son Karan to his London-based sister, Jeeto, and second son Charan to his Punjab-settled brother, Baldev.

23 years later[edit]

Karan and Charan are grown up respectively in London and Punjab. Karan loves the hot and gorgeous Supreet "Sweety" Kaur Gill from 2 years but Jeeto's husband, Paramjeet Sood, sets him to wed Binkle, the daughter of Paramjeet's business partner Akalpreet Sandhu. To marry Sweety, Karan asks Baldev to make Charan marry Binkle. In Punjab, Charan is dating a Muslim, Nafisa Qureshi, but hasn't told this to Baldev as he is biased against Muslims. He takes Charan to London.

Charan tells about Nafisa to Kartar, who suggests him to act as a drug addict in front of the Sandhus to break the alliance. Charan does this but falls for Binkle at first sight. Her brother Manpreet, due to a misunderstanding, assumes him to be druggist. Upset, Baldev misbehaves with Akalpreet and Jeeto later insults him. He severs ties with her and decides to come back to Punjab. As Charan is back with Nafisa, so he asks Karan to bring her at airport to talk about her to Baldev. Karan brings Nafisa but Charan terrifies to speak.

Due to this Baldev assumes Nafisa as Karan's girlfriend. As he hears Sweety's father Kuljeet pleading for her wedding, he takes Charan's proposal for Sweety. She is upset at Karan. Jeeto sets him to marry Binkle. As Baldev arranges destination marriage in London, everyone arrives there. Charan reveals to Binkle about Sweety and Karan, falling again for her. Nafisa reaches London. She and Manpreet fall in love. Charan reveals he also loves Binkle now and isn't drug addict.

Kartar refuses to help Karan, Sweety, Charan, Binkle, Manpreet and Nafisa. 25 December, the wedding day arrives when Karan and Charan exchange their sherwanis. Sweety reveals her love for Karan, shocking everyone. Kartar explains Jeeto and Baldev to stop arguing and be silly. They patch up. Kartar orders Karan and Charan to have original identities.

Critical reception[edit]

Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times rated it 3/5 and felt that the lead actor, Arjun Kapoor, was overshadowed by Anil Kapoor: "It’s just that Anil Kapoor is a pro at it and steals all the limelight from him (Arjun).....You’ll be occasionally laughing, but probably won’t be leaving the theatre with a big smile on your face.[10]

Meena Lyer of Times of India rated the film 3/5 and concluded: "Anil is the scene-stealer with his half Brit-half Punjabi act lifting the film throughout. Arjun’s double-act allows for some smiles and the girls, Ileana, Athiya and Neha are easy on the eye, though they’re just decorative set-pieces."[11]

Manju Ramanan of Masala! gave the film 3.5/5 saying, "Loud characters, bright sets, songs and dances and slapstick humour dominate this Anees Bazmee film. But the instances do make you smile.[12]

Ahana Bhattacharya of Koimoi gave the film 3/5 saying, "The story is funny and the film has some really hilarious dialogues. However, Sardar jokes are a bit clichéd and Bollywood needs to get over it. I loved the way the film builds up the confusion but it tends to drag towards the climax. There are moments when you will feel it is patriarchal, racist and regressive. Also, the climax is a bit predictable.[13]
