Raj, Yogi and Vikram - best friends, business partners, serial womanizers and happily married! Happy, because their lovely wives have no clue that their husbands cheat on them with every pretty young thing they can lay their eyes on. This picture perfect world is rocked when Raj's wife, Sanjana begins to suspect her husband and hires the suave private detective, Kishan, to tail him. Kishan's built his reputation as a man who saves marriages by getting erring husbands to mend their ways. In this particular case, however, his overwhelming attraction towards Sanjana means he may not be acting in her best interest! What follows is a crazy cat and mouse game, with Kishan trying to catch the husbands with their pants down literally and them attempting to just stay outside his grasp.
About the Actor
Akshay Kumar was born as Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia on the 9th September 1967 in Amritsar to a middle class Punjabi household. His father was a government worker. He grew up in Delhi and later in Mumbai s Koliwada area. He did his schooling at the Don Bosco School and his college years were spent in Khalsa College, where he showed an inclination for sports. He studied martial arts in Bangkok while working as a chef.
He came back to Delhi to teach martial arts when one of his students suggested he try his hand in modeling, which led to an offer to act in Deedar as the lead actor. Akshay was linked with several of his co-stars like Raveena Tandon, Shilpa Shetty, Pooja Batra and even Rekha. He is currently married to actress turned entrepreneur Twinkle Khanna and they have a son Araav.
Akshay Kumar didn t grab any headlines with his debut Saugandh in 1991. Deedar, Dancer and Khiladi were released in 1992. With Khiladi being one of the biggest hits of the year. In 1993, he came out with atleast six movies all of which fell flat. But he more than made up for it in 1994 with hits like Mohra with Raveena Tandon, Yeh Dillagi with Kajol and Saif Ali Khan and Mein Khiladi Tu Anari with Saif Ali Khan and Shilpa Shetty. He received a nomination for the Filmfare Best Actor award for his romantic role in Yeh Dillagi.
He tried his hand in the comedy stream quite successfully in 2000 with Hera Pheri, which was a laugh riot. Dhadkan with pal Suneil Shetty and Shilpa Shetty also was a good performer at the box office. In 2006 he starred in a sequel to Hera Pheri titled Phir Hera Pheri. As was the former, the sequel became a huge success at the box office. He established himself as a successful comedy actor with a series of comedy releases.
2007 proved to be Kumar's most successful year during his career in the industry, and as described by box office analysts, "probably the best ever recorded by an actor, with four outright hits and no flops." Singh Is Kinng was a huge success at the box office and broke the first-week worldwide record of Om Shanti Om, the previous highest figure. He also made a debut on the small screen with Fear Factor India.See all Editorial Reviews

Personally enjoyed it very much from start to finish. Well written, good plot, nicely executed, direction is perfect, editing is just right, music is different and fits the plot. Above all the casting was on the dot with superb performances. The actors are hilarious and compliment each other perfectly, the movie flows with ease throughout. Loved it so much that had to own a copy.
Kishan's initial attempt to expose the less than faithful husband is deflected by an elaborate lie. However, soon the husbands are hiring the same P.I. to find out who is tipping off their wives and Kishan concocts an elaborate scheme to get them to out each other.
What I liked...
-I actually did laugh out loud at a couple of points because some of the plot twists were very funny
-The philandering husbands did not get away with their (excessive) womanizing
What I did not like...
-The soundtrack was, in my view, a little unmemorable. Usually, by the end of the film I am humming one of the tunes but this is not the case here.
-This film was supposed to be amusing but some of the "serious" bits were way over done taking a dramatic and awkward turn in mood.
This is definitely one of those films to rent before you buy to see if it is to your taste. To me it seems more like a film you watch once just to say you did.
Marriage is so sacred in the land of Bollywood and yet here is a film that relishes in its infidelity. It reminds me of American exploitation films of the 1970s. The film glories in the forbidden fruits, but must conform in plot to the moral rules of the modern India. That makes for a film that isn't nearly as much fun at it wants to be.
For an American audience (not NRI), this movie will seem quite strange, even if you are used to the amusing excesses of Bollywood Cinema. You won't regret watching it, but by the end you'll feel like you've been watching a 'fetish film' for a fetish you don't undestand.
