Storyline

Satara-based petty road-works contractor, Sachin Tichkule, faces challenges when the Satara Municipal Corporation puts a hold on his payment. He decides to sue them, while his extended family deal with the crisis of a recently-collapsed bridge resulting in 65 deaths. If matters were not bad enough, the new Municipal Commissioner is none other than his estranged girlfriend/ex-collegian, Gehna Ganpule. Sachin had abused and assaulted her in Mumbai a few years ago, and she is now determined to blacklist him at any and all costs. While comically dealing with indolent employees, his sister's marriage, an elephant, a road-roller &c. he lands in even more hot water when the local police get ready to prosecute him for alleged Sexual Molestation, as well as Assault and Threats to Kill Gehna's brother.

Trivia

In the 1980s, in what was then Bombay, the Bhatia family used to stay in a modest housing society called Rama Krishna in Bandra (East). Here, one of Rajeev's close friends was his neighbour, Deven Tichkule. Cut to 2010, when Akshay Kumar took on the character of a simple, middle-class Maharashtrian, he chose the surname Tichkule to revive his fun-filled childhood memories. See more »

Nice Priyadarshan flick
27 July 2010 | by ketaki-duttaSee all my reviews

I don't know why people gives such low ratings to this kind of a plain simple movie which raises a voice about the ongoing vices in the society. To be honest this movie is FAR better than some star- kid starer monotonous love story. I liked this movie. Short,simple, yet carries a message. Light-hearted yet enjoyable, this movie is one of the good comedy flicks in Bollywood. This movie has veteran actors like Manoj Joshi, Kulbhushan Kharbanda,Milind Gunaji, Aruna Irani, Asrani and our very favorite Akshay Kumar who is a great comedian himself. This movie reminded me of the very famous series of Pankaj Kapoor starer Office Office. I think if you like satirical comedies, this movie is definitely worth a watch. Watch it with your friends and family and chips and drink and enjoy to the core !!!! Cheers to good comedy !!!
