Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★½☆
Box Office: Super Hit

3 young man take a holiday that changes their lives forever.

Kabir (Abhay Deol) has just met Natasha. 6 months later they are engaged. He wants to go on an extended bachelor party, a 3 week road trip with Imraan (Farhan Akhtar) and Arjun (Hrlttiik Roshan) – his 2 best friends since school. The only problem is Arjun is too tied up with work. After much emotional blackmail and cajoling the boys set off on a journey they were meant to take 4 years ago.

A fantasy holiday they had planned to take after college but never happened. A road trip where each one gets to do the ultimate sport of his choice and the other 2 just have to do it with him. Whether they want to or not!

Kabir Imraan and Arjun meet up in Barcelona and set off on an adventure. It will not only make them iron out their differences but also face their, alter their perception, unravel their fabric, force them to break out of the box and teach them to seize the day.

In other words a holiday that will change their lives forever.
