Story : Three good for nothing wastrels, Saleem (Mast), Feroze (Feroze) and Aamir (Raja) can't believe their luck when they stumble upon a pouch full of precious diamonds meant to be delivered to a notorious don, Chunnu Bahi (Srivastav). The friends soon find themselves in big trouble when Chunnu Bahi discovers the truth about his missing diamonds.

Movie Review : "Potti Pataye, Aunty Ghumaye, Daru peeke fultun thoda dagmagaye. . .but Saleem is a good boy" go the first few lines of the song that introduces the central character, who seems to be an extension of the iconic Saleem Pheku from Angrez. This time around he's just Saleem but is still a riot. A smooth talking con with quirks galore, the guy is just incorrigible.

When not chasing women he's telling tall stories about the most random things and getting his friends - Feroze and Aamir - in trouble. When Feroze is need of a loan, Saleem takes him to a financer who charges 10% interest per day! Aamir dreams of becoming an actor, but our man lands him a role in a soft porn flick. As is the norm with deccani films, the humor is all very slap stick in nature. There is plenty of yelling, shrieking, innuendos and exaggerated histrionics.

There are a few quirky one-liners as well. Bucket jitni bhi badi ho, nal ke neeche hi rehti. . .goes one. Idly is soft, dosa is very good but ma ki wodon ka tho jawab hi nahi. . . goes another. Basically the filmmaker laced the movie with all the usual suspects. The only problem is we've seen it all a few too many times now.

Now we don't go to such a movie expecting a great story, tight narration, great music, fabulous acting and original screenplay, but there is only so much anyone can milk a lingo to generate laughs. That's where the cookie crumbles, we're afraid.

Also except for Saleem, all the other characters seem ill conceived. The writing is funny in parts but lacks the originality and chutzpah of films like Angrez or Hyderabad Nawabs.

Note : It isn't exactly a laugh riot, but packs a few laughs nevertheless. So a how much you will enjoy it will depend more on your willingness to have a good time.
