What’s Good: Difficult to find but humor is the only good thing in this film. There is little that woks for this film and hence other than a few laughs that you will have thanks to the hilarity of the situations presented. Sanjay Mishra is the only comic relief with much caliber here.

What’s Bad: Pinning it down to the core, what doesn’t work is the plot, the music and the amateur direction as well.falls flat in all departments and leaves nothing for you to savor on. Even though the film’s run-time is not much , the execution makes it lengthy.

Watch or Not?: NOT! There is absolutely nothing concrete in the film. Neither do you watch something extraordinary, nor hear. Thanks to a highly punctured plot itself , the film doesn’t move much farther. Also since everyone is  not Anurag Kashayp, handling multiple characters without any significance is certainly not working. The week has four releases so don’t waste your money on this one.

Nikhil (Jaideep Ahlawat), Amit (Aakash Dahiya), Gagan (Vansh Bhardwaj), Sunny (Shadab Kamal), Rahul (Chandrachoor Rai) and Sanjeev Foreigner (because of his hair color) are college buddies who are Meerut-based. After passing out of college, the lads in search for jobs and it seems either to start their own business or get a job, they need to raise money first. In their search to make fast money, they end-up kidnapping a businessman.

Their first kidnapping turns out to be a successful affair as they receive the ransom money. On receiving it, the gang plans to throw a party for a company’s zonal head and regional head as a bribe to get the job they have almost landed with but have no MBA degree which is a basic requirement. After the party they learn, the company is fraud and hence kidnap the regional manager to get back the money spent on pleasing him.

While Sanjeev’s uncle is a real estate agent, he coaxes them to get 2 crores to set -up their own business. Since they know the rules now, there takes place another kidnapping but this time it does not miss the eyes of inspector R K Singh (Mukul Dev).

Thus what goes on is a cat and mouse chase with back-stabbing and cheating as the plot thickens.
