While watching the trailer of the movie it becomes clear that it has been ‘inspired’ from the Hollywood movie “Three men and a baby”. However the director Sajid Khan denies that his movie is based on any such movie. Well, there is nothing wrong to take inspiration from something, but it is hard to improve.
Despite the denial, the story goes parallel to the Hollywood movie with additions of some music numbers.
Aroush (Akshay Kumar), Ali (Fardeen Khan) and Tanmany (Ritesh Deshmukh) are having all the fun a bachelor would have till someone drops a baby girl at their door step with a note. Each of them denies to be father of the baby. Being unexperienced in raising a small child they face difficulty to look after the baby. After unsuccessful efforts to find the mother of the baby, they try to get rid her. But with a life threatening accident to the baby, their hearts change and they start loving the baby and enjoy her company. When the three men are settled, her mother (Vidya Balan) , a former lover of Aroush , turns up and gets the hold of the child. The three men make various attempts to get the her back with the mother and eventually everyone unites and lives happily.
Sajid Khan being the director and looking to the plot of the movie, a comic relief was heavily expected, but the movie fails to deliver much. Most of comedy scenes are physical comedy and dual meaning dialogs. Akshay Kumar is an established actor in comedy, as he has proved his metal under the direction of Priyadarshan but he is not at his par performance.
There are some comic relief the trio try to provide , here and there , but nothing for stomach holding laughs. Boman Irani, another talented actor, and I always found it disturbing that directors waste him for overacting. Vidya Balan is okay as she has nothing much to do. There was some gimmicks for the promotion of movie by shooting some 21 actresses in one song, you will be hardly able to recognize few of them. Then there is overacting Anupam Kher and Shahrukh Khan in special appearances for no reason at all. There is nothing special about the musical numbers and are easily forgotten.
In my view the movie fails to entertain for the money one may spend on it. I would stay at home and watch the re-run of Mr. Bean on Pogo.
