The script is stupid. There are glaring loopholes in it. Well, I don't really mind there being loopholes in the film if they director can deflect our attention from it but this movie fails entirely in that.
The ending is ridiculous and makes no sense at all. The filmmakers tried to make a satire-comedy with a message that shortcuts don't work, but failed on all three counts.
The comedy can be best described as a totally unfunny concoction of intentional stupidity, un-subtle and in-your-face, wanna-be witty one- liners that are not witty at all with ridiculous exaggeration.
The satire is too exaggerated to carry any real weight.
Such is the script that performances lose all weight. Akshay Khanna's serious role is weak and made more so by the silly feel the movie has. Arshad Warsi to be fair does what the script tells him too, which might excuse his performance but not the fact that he agreed to do this movie in the first place.
