Story: Shiv Ram Kishan (Kapil Sharma) gets married to three girls by mistake, without any of his fault. He readily accepts the responsibility of all his three wives, despite having a girlfriend too. After things start getting worse, he accepts his best friend (Varun Sharma)’s advice to shift them all to one building, with each of his flat being one above the other! However, things take a turn when the three ladies become friends!
What follows next, throughout the movie, is his attempts to hide his other marriages from each of his wife and his girlfriend
Performances: Kapil Sharma will remind you of the Govinda of 90’s! He carries the entire film on his shoulders, establishing a different and nice chemistry with all the ladies. He is, as we all know, brilliant in the comic scenes and has no problems delivering dialogues. And he proves his mettle in emotional scenes too. The only department where he fails is intense romance, which is quite visible in a song during the second half!
Varun Sharma is superb! After ‘Fukrey’ here is yet another adorable performance by him. It’s a delight to watch him every time he is on-screen! His scientific solutions to every situation will leave you in splits, and his chemistry with Kapil is refreshing!
Arbaaz Khan, as the deaf brother-in-law of Kapil, has done a good job too. More than his acting, it is his character that is funny to watch.
All the three wives of Kapil - Manjari Phandis, Simran Kaur Mundi and Sai Lokur looks gorgeous and have a done a commendable job. However, Elli Avram will remind you Katrina Kaif from her ‘Partner’ days and fails to leave an impact.
Supriya Pathak, Manoj Joshi and Sharat Saxena have done a wonderful job.
Jamie Lever will surely remind you of her father Johnny Lever, thanks to her expressions and dialogue delivery.
Direction: Moving away from a genre you have always been known for and stepping into a completely different field must have been quite a task in itself! However, one should not forget that Abbas-Mustan have always had a comic angle in all their movies- be it ‘Baazigar’ or ‘Race’.
But delivering a full-fledged comedy movie could have resulted in a big failure. Fortunately, they succeed in making the audience laugh with nearly all their jokes; and also present us with an emotional climax. Even though one can see that the movie has been made at low budget, it is their experience that saves the movie from looking like an immature one.
As stated above, the movie does have a nonsensical story line and many flaws. However, the genre of the movie is such that it would be ignored by the audiences who enter the cinema halls to laugh their hearts out and get entertained.
Their style of direction is completely different from what they have always done and surely deserve applauses for taking such a brave step! However, they could have had a better say at the editing table along with better songs.
Combo-On-Offer: Comedy + Drama
Verdict: The movie is high on entertainment and comic scenes, but one cannot ignore the flaws in the script. Hence, we give it just CLAPS.
