Synopsis by Mark Deming

Three neglected husbands get the job opportunity of a lifetime in this Bollywood musical comedy. Veer (Zayed Khan), Raj (Fardeen Khan), and Aryan (Sharman Joshi) are three close friends whose lives have taken a turn for the worst -- all three have lost their jobs, and all three have wives who are too busy with their own lives and careers to tend to their husbands in the bedroom. Diya (Esha Deol) is trying to launch her career in show business, Bhavna (Ayesha Takia) is obsessed with her spiritual side, and Sonia (Soha Ali Khan) is occupied with her law practice. Things are so grim for the husbands that they begin pondering suicide, but one Mr. Kothari (Satish Shah) comes to the rescue when he gives them jobs, and then asks a very special favor of them. Kothari has three beautiful daughters who all balk at the notion of having their father arrange marriages for them; to show them the folly of following their own hearts, Kothari wants the three husbands to woo and win the young ladies, and then break their hearts. Veer, Raj, and Aryan are happy to go along, but ending their relationships with the beautiful and willing women proves more difficult than they imagined, and the situation becomes stickier when the eligible bachelorettes strike up a friendship with the three betrayed wives.
