Akshay Kumar stars in a high production values film as Aarush the unluckiest man in the world - so unlucky that a casino pays him to walk through & jinx the players. When his girlfriend rejects him, he returns to London to stay with his only friend Bob (Ritesh Deshmukh)- with predictably disastrous but hilarious consequences.
If you like screwball comedy with some genuine pathos, this is one for you. While Aarush struggles to find true love in despite of his ill luck and Bob's wife Hetal (Lara Dutta) tries to reconcile with her estranged father, you watch half in horror and half laughing as all the characters dig themselves deeper into a chaotic tangle of deception - but always from the best intentions. Ok, you have a fair idea where the film is heading but a classy supporting cast and some excellent comic set pieces will still reduce you to hysterics. And the lookalike Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla in the climactic scenes are the best I've seen, adding nicely to the humour.
The locations are glamourous with beautiful Italian beaches, a stunning millionaire's mansion and London looking fantastic, the songs are catchy and the subtitles excellent. A colourful, funny, fun film.
