Singh Bedi aka Jimmy (Ritesh Deshmukh) is a taxi driver
in New York without permanent immigration status. He
befriends a girl Sally (Brande Roderick) - a wannabe
singer. The immigration authorities warn Jimmy that
his visa would be expiring in a month and he should
find a new sponsor and Jimmy could not procure one.
When Jimmy confides the same with Sally, she comes up
with a proposal that he could marry Sally. And if the
wife is an American citizen, the spouse would be getting
citizen status as well. Sally did this because she loves
Jimmy. Jimmy has liking towards Sally, but he is forced
to marry her because he don't want to leave USA and
go back to Punjab.
his marriage is over, he gets a SOS call that his father
is seriously ill. When Jimmy goes back to his hometown,
he realizes that his father Jatta Singh Bedi (Amrish
Puri) played a trick to get him back to India so that
he could marry his son off to a daughter of wealthy
family whose son is also getting married to his own
daughter. When Jimmy refuses for marriage, he puts a
sentiment card that the marriage of his sister would
also get affected. He marries Richa (Hrishitaa Bhatt)
and go back to NY promising his parents that he would
take back Richa with him once he financially settles
going to USA, Jimmy stops communicating with parents
and Indian wife. Alarmed by the same, Jatta Singh Bedi
sets off his journey to USA along with his sister-in-law
Richa in search of his wily son. They get hold of Jimmy.
Jimmy starts alternating between his wives without letting
one know about another. One fine day, the hell broke
loose. His wives realize about his infidelity. What
happens next forms the climax of this flick.
Brande Roderick: This Baywatch babe is cool as
Hindi speaking Sally. Her Hindi is little funny in the
beginning and it becomes interesting as we get used
to her accent. He is pretty sensible and director made
every effort to expose each and every inch of her tanned
Deshmukh: Ritesh Deshmukh - who made his debut with
Usha Kiron Movies Tujhe Meri Kasam - matured a lot with
his second venture 'Out of Control'. He is extremely
lovable as Punjabi munde. He is pretty natural and spontaneous.
Bhatt: The girl who did an item song in SRK's "Asoka'
did a full length character as Richa. She is very sweet.
He exhibited the helplessness of a bride who is ignored
by her man in a very effective manner.
The livewire of this film is none but the great Amrish
Puri as 'danda' carrying traditional Punjabi
father. His serious portrayal made audiences on the
end of their seats with laughter. Satish
Kaushik is very good as Mango, who claims that
he has solution for everything. But it is Satish
Shah who makes a brilliant portrayal as a drag
queen. The entire story revolves mainly around these
screenplay: Story of the film is pretty identifiable
for the NRI men who desperately seek for an alternative
for getting permanent visa. The screenplay of the film
is also good except for the climax and the first 20
The debutant directors Ramajit Juneja and Apurva Asrani
did a decent job. The succeeded in making this flick
cater to the tastes of targeted audiences like NRIs
and Indian multiplex crowds. However, this film would
have been impeccable if the following things were taken
Jimmy marries Richa without any resistance. He should
have made some genuine efforts to put of his marriage.
If he were married to Richa after failing if a few
efforts to stop marriage, it would have been more
2. The climax of the film is very dramatic. One fail
to understand why these two women change their minds
about their man so quickly.
Other departments: 1st song of the film is peppy.
All other songs come as break to the narration. Background
score of the film is OK. Hindi dialogues by Bholu Khan
and Aman Jaffery are entertaining. The comedy quotient
is high. Cinematography by Neelabh Kaul is first rate.
First 20 minutes of the film (till Jimmy marries Sally)
is slow. Once Jimmy visits India, the tempo of the film
gathers momentum. Once Jatta Singh Bedi reaches USA
in search of his son, the real fun begins. The entire
story is told in a entertaining style. NRIs and multiplex
crowds may watch this film once.
