Users Rating: [ratings] ★★½☆☆
Box Office: Flop

Every man’s dream: an adult life in the midst of bras and panties. One look at a woman, and he knows her size. Reality check: Farhad Pastakiya, a 45-year-old golden-hearted Parsi bachelor working as a bra and panty salesman, has never found love. The only women in his life are his dominating mother Nargis and doting grandmother Siloo. The world has given up on him, but Farhad has never given up hope. One day a 34B walks into his shop, and it’s love at first sight. Shirin Fugawala, a 40-year-old, bubbly, straightforward, Parsi trust secretary, is Farhad’s soul mate, but destiny intervenes in the form of a demolished water tank. All hell breaks loose as Farhad’s mother Nargis realizes that her son’s dream girl is her sworn enemy.

Directed by Bela Bhansali Sehgal, the film stars Farah Khan and Boman Irani and Hado Shah in lead roles.
