Vinay Sharma (Bobby Deol) is a quiet school teacher, Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade) is a loan recovery officer and Jaagavar Chaudhary (Sunny Deol) is a retired army official. They live in a small town where everyone knows everyone, and so, when their pictures are seen on advertisement posters for ‘nasbandi’ or vasectomy, their lives become intertwined. Hilarity ensues as the three face-off against the government, who had put up the posters in the first place.

Direction and Acting :-

Bobby Deol plays a shy, small town boy, who rarely speaks in his defense and Sunny Deol plays the ‘dormant volcano’ or the retired army officer who is terrifying when provoked. This is a great comeback for the Deol brothers, whose last few films have not done very well. This being his directorial debut, Shreyas Talpade has shown his experience from the industry. His skill as an actor and director really pulls through for the film. Sonali Kulkarni and Samiksha Bhatnagar also perform quite well as the female leads.

Music and Cinematography:-
The songs are melodious and well sung.  They are enjoyable and well adjusted into the film. Colors and masala is galore onscreen and the cheerful atmosphere seeps into the cinemagoer and walks out with him/her. The small town is captured well along with the fields of corn and general ‘Punjab’ atmosphere.

Screenplay :-
The plot is quite interesting because it ties a socially uncomfortable message with comedy. Bunty Rathore and Paritosh Painter, along with Sameer Patil, have us laughing throughout the 2 hours of the film. It is a clean comedy regarding an ‘indecent’ topic, but it carries it off quite well. The comedy is well timed and it succeeds in helping us forget our troubles and sympathize, yet laugh at the three protagonists. This is a family oriented film (even though it educates you on how not to have one!), and does not belong to the senseless commercial category that comedies usually belong to.

Cineapeak Verdict: A good, clean comedy stress buster that you can take your family to over the weekend!
