We know the release of 3 Bachelors has been stuck up for some ten odd years now. So naturally expectations are not high. Rightly so, for everything – just everything – seems stale in here.
The plot is seen to death: Two college boys (Amit and Jai) can never find accommodation in the super expensive Maximum city. What’s next? One of them dresses up as the wife and the so-called couple happily finds shelter in the same outlet that has their respective girl friends on the ground floor. Of course, the movie, right in the beginning, unabashedly owns up to getting all that makeover idea from Chachi 420. Add to that a sub (love) plot of yet another bachelor, Deepak Verma (Manoj Pahwa), and you know stale is just the beginning .
The performances sadly are nothing much to talk about. While Himani Shivpuri (she has maximum screen time) is seen playing the ‘toofani danda’ – the college principal who does not believe in love till she herself falls into the love trap, the Sen sisters are there as mere eye candies. Even the item song seems dated. Not so much for the lyrics and tune, but more for the item girl herself – the long lost Nigar Khan.
Interestingly, there are a couple of one liners (out-and-out adult, mind you) and moments that manage to make you laugh… somewhat. But then it’s all in flashes… primarily in the first half. The second half is all bhashan on love, family, friendship, duties….
Finally, the Big Q we just can’t stop ourselves from asking: Sharman, is that really you…all skinny and skimpy? Guess we need to blame it on his (Sharma Joshi’s) not-so-Ferrari-Ki-Sawaari (read struggling) days.
Amit ( Sharman Joshi) and Jai (Manish Nagpal) fall for Neha ( Raima Sen) and Nisha ( Riya Sen). But before they can settle down in marriage there is a whole lot of confusion that needs to be tackled first.
