Starring for the first time Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012) does take the path yet not trodden in Bollywood, a youth love story, sounds almost like a perfect valentine movie for this generation. Inspired from ‘What Happens in Vegas’ starring Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher, the movie gets subplots from many more Hollywood movies and sitcoms. Directed by first time director Shakun Batra under elite Dharma productions, the movie might pretty well appeal youth centric multiplexes.

Rahul [Imran Khan] is on his way to become a replica of his parents [Boman Irani, Ratna Pathak Shah], when he suddenly loses his job as an architect in Vegas. Afraid that he has let his parents down, Rahul decides to hide the truth and find another job. When by a twist of fate, he meets Riana [Kareena Kapoor], a quick-witted hairstylist, who is everything he isn’t.

A series of events lead them to meet on Christmas Eve over a few drinks, but like always, it’s never a ‘few’. Following this night of debauchery, they wake up to discover that they’ve gotten married. Now, Rahul has more than just his job loss to hide from his parents. They both decide to get it annulled as soon as possible and get an appointment from the court in ten days. Over the next ten days they have their share of arguments, moments and laughs that results in an unlikely friendship.

Will this friendship turn in love? Will her warmth and fearlessness give Rahul the courage to face a long-simmering confrontation with his parents? Will a marriage that started as a drunken mistake help two people find themselves?
