An Indian girl brings home her Pakistani boyfriend to introduce him to her parents for the first time. The family is a typical loud Punjabi one with a distaste for people across the border. Also, the family doesn't know of the boy's nationality. A recipe for disaster, in this case Total Siyapaa, isn't it?
Set in London, Pakistani boy Aman (Ali Zafar) is in a relationship with Asha (Yami Gautam), an Indian girl. Asha wants Aman to meet her parents while he is a bit reluctant owing to a bad start to the day. Apparently, Aman's intuitions were spot on and he is convinced by Asha for a 'Meet the Parents' session. What it leads to is a series of mad-cap scenarios that has potential to even jeopardize the Aman-Asha relationship!
The first half moves quickly, laced with funny situations involving the girl's mother, Kirron Kher, playing a loud Punjabi mother (for the umpteenth time!), the sensuous sister Gia (Sara Khan), the bumbling Dadu (Vishwa Badola) and the rowdy brother (Anuj Pandit). There is also a five year old adding to the family madness in between! Anupam Kher as Asha's father provides a cameo in the second half.
Speaking of the second half, this is where the movie gets muddy and you get the feeling that the director tries a bit too hard. The movie lasts only two hours but still the latter part of the movie feels like a drag. The movie is light, easy on the senses and it even manages to make fun out of the extremely touchy issues between the two neighboring countries!
Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam do a decent job while the rest of the cast is okay. A premise like this hasn't been attempted before and it does its job in fits. Yes, there are flaws, but it does work as a one-time watch. I was wondering if it would be a siyapaa to watch this movie but it wasn't. It is not a genius of a movie either. Watch it if you looking for something funny and light-hearted which will occupy not more than two hours of your precious time. I would give the movie Claps with a Slap or two disguised in between!
