Here's the plot: The charming but irresponsible and ever struggling actor Suhaan Kapoor (Salman Khan) has been very negligent with his alimony payments and now finds himself being forced to pay one huge lump sum. With his dwarven co-conspirator Bonny, Suhaan concocts a plan wherein his ex-wife Piya's awkward old college classmate - whose name is Agastya Rao(Akshay Kumar), and now a NASA astronaut - would end up marrying Piya, thus ridding Suhaan of all financial obligations to his ex-wife. You see, Agastya (or Champu, as Piya used to derisively call him in campus) has always been in love with Piya, and now looks to catch up on old times. To ensure that everything goes well, Suhaan accompanies Agastya to New York, where Piya currently dwells.
Turns out, though, Agastya requires more hands-on help than first thought, as he becomes absurdly clumsy and goofy in Piya's pesence. So Suhaan begins communicating with him via an earpieced radio device, instructing Agastya in what to say and do in his outings with Piya. It works, and Piya and Agastya become good chums.
"Are you ready to fall in love...again?" is this film's tagline. This question seems to apply most to Suhaan, who, in the midst of mentoring Agastya, begins to fall anew for his ex-wife. Then, even as Piya and Agastya continue to get closer, the inevitable Bollywood twist surfaces, which pretty much shatters Suhaan's original scheme to smittereens.Read more ›
The story involves an egocentric actor who cuts off from his wife to ensure his movies success (as marriage makes him unmarketable apparently) She divorces him. He hatches a plan to avoid alimony payments by encouraging her marriage to someone else (a nerd who had a crush on her in college). His plan largely works but he realizes he still loves her and sees his mistake and does the right thing. Who will she end up with...?
Akshay Kumar's arrival and more on-screen from Preity Zinta lifted things. Anupam Kher turn up again (not as a dwarf this time) when the action moves to New York for most of the movie.
Akshay was excellent throughout going from shy nerd to handsome guy with a great heart. I used to take or leave Akshay but I find that assessment seems to depend on the style of the movies. He is great in romances but I don't like him doing hammy idiots in comedies. He is good in action movies - though they aren't my style so much and I haven't seen him in this genre as much.
To an extent the same is so with Salman. If his characters go whinney or egocentric as they can often do I just don't relate. Yet he can do light romance with heart and even more subtle comedy (e.g. Salaam Namaste) quite well. His dancing seems to vary a lot too from a bit awkward to quite good.Read more ›
All the songs were okay, none that was really memorable or outstanding. Overall a very good movie.

Salman Khan and Preity Zinta pair up again in this romantic movie. Akshay Khumar is the third point of the triangle. To say that I love this movie is an understatement. Read morePublished 8 months ago by mention not
