|Written & Directed by: Iqbal Raj; Cast: Aban Deohans, Nutan Raj, Rohini Bannerji, Aditya Mathur, Nayan Chandan, Pramod Singh and Iqbal Raj; A comedy of errors, of mistaken identity and total chaos. J. K. Varma is a district collector and a man of old-fashioned conservative views. His wife Monica is a modern woman who spends her life trying to be like Shabnam, a page three socialite, and a well-known person in the media. Monica also follows Dr. Srivats, a mysterious man who writes a newspaper column under the penname 'The Sexpert'. JK and Monica have a daughter Shelly who is studying in a college in New York. Shelly comes home for the holidays with a boyfriend, Atom, in tow and JK hits the ceiling. Matters are further complicated when Shelly and Atom request permission to live together to find out whether they are 'compatible' or not. JK's sense of values and propriety are severely challenged. Atom and Shelly produce a series of e-mails from the Sexpert in support of their stand. JK is stumped. Then he gets an idea! JK persuades his assistant Adarsh to masquerade as Dr.Srivats and persuade the young couple that living together is not a good idea. Adarsh agrees. Into this situation enters Sahbnam who is on the lookout for Dr.Srivats with a view of marrying him. 'Dr.Srivats' falls in love with Shabnam at first sight. The battle lines are clearly drawn! |
Atom and Shelly want to live-in with permission from their elders. Dr. Srivats has to separate them and still look like a freethinker in Shabnam's eyes. Shabnam and Monica agree that the young couple have a right to make their own decisions. And JK wants Atom out of the running as fast as possible. A sequence of hilarious scenes piles up as modernism and conservatism take up arms against each other. What is love? This is a question that is answered from both sides of the generation gap.
