Very clever film that warms up quickly. Great understated acting by Kher as Khosla. Love the Chak de pathe song too.

Simple, innocent, realistic and entertaining.
The promising debut of one of India's most noble directors.

Not a bad movie, despite not really doing anything for me. The cast seemed to have fun but the comedy really is practically nonexistent. And the first hour of the film can be a chore to sit through since it does set up the scam that the family pulls off against Khurana. The movie means well, trying to tell a story of a father and son reconnecting and becoming closer after some difficult moments earlier in the film. The problem is, the second hour and the set-up to the scam is completely convoluted and doesn't really lead to any decent comedy either way. As mentioned, the cast is decent enough and I didn't really hate the movie. But the story is poorly written and the comedy isn't particularly effective. It has its moments, but they're few and far in between so it makes it hard to recommend this movie.

Refreshes your mind everytime you watch it. Nicely Acted.
The best part of the part is that its humor is well handled and does not depends on showing the direct Gags which most of the below the Average Bollywood Comedies Do.

It's like 'Parks and Recreation' meets 'Ocean's 11'. One of the most original con movies I've seen in a LONG time. Bollywood needs to make more movies like this. It's on Netflix Instant, watch it!

This movie has it all. Great actors, great story and great comedy. The best acting by Boman Irani, that I have ever seen so far.

I think its one of the best movies made in India. For a change there are no songs, grand sets, foreign locations... all you have is great character actors, a brilliant story that a lot of people can relate to, and just overall a fun movie from start to finsh.

This movie is based on a Gujarati saying which translates something into "Cheaters never go hungry where greedy people exist". Exploiting that human weakness forms the crux of the movie.

Overall, it is difficult to find anything wrong with this movie.The direction is almost good, the pace fast and the movie hardly digresses. It is set in a middle class setting that you would normally find in Hrishikesh Mukharjee or Basu Chatterjee movies. There are no big stars that try to hog the lime light.

The movie is divided into two half. First half is serious. This movie follows the path of 80's movies, mainly "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro" or "Ankush" that focuses on the corruption prevalent in the Indian bureaucracy. However, realising the fact that things haven't changed in last 30 years makes you sad - that stereotypical corrupt politicians, party leaders and police officers.

The second half than changes the direction and turns funny, or say more farcical. As in Hindi they say "Tedhi Ungli Se Ghee Nikalne Ka". But to realise that a greedy but seasoned guy like Boman Irani would be easily fooled seems hard to digest. There are some funny one liners.

Anupam Kher is plays the role of the middle aged patriarch with perfection. The best part that I liked was his difficult in eating a pizza. Rest of the cast does their job well. Only, the romantic angle between Parvin Dabas and Tara Sharma could have been easily avoided. It is just a time waster. Same is the character of Anupam Kher's daughter, which looks terribly out of place and has nothing to contribute to the movie.

Overall, it is that escapist popcorn entertainment that Indian audience crave for and Dibakar Bannerjee delivers. But I wouldn't call this movie a masterpiece of put it at same level with "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron"or likes.

This movie was the real picture of the middle class society of India.Well the second half of the movie, the endeavor to snatch back the property, seems somewhat superficial, but its not an impossible stuff.

One of my favourite Hindi movies. Anupam Kher is brilliant in his acting and so is Boman Irani. The movie is able to reflect well on the Indian middle-class spirit in a lighter way.
