A simple story of a simple, idealistic father Rustam Deboo aka Rusy (Joshi) and his son Kayo (Sahore) who hail from a middle-class Parsi family residing in Mumbai. Rusy’s father, Deboo (Irani) is a veteran cricketer who had a career ending injury at a young age due to which he has developed a grudge against the sport. Kayo is passionate about cricket and is touted to become the next Sachin Tendulkar, provided he get good training. Rustam works at the Regional Transport Authority (RTO) and his close friend Baboo Didi (Bhargava) is a wedding planner who wants to know where can she find a Ferrari in Mumbai. Baboo Didi’s client is a local gun-totting politician whose son is getting married. She planted the unique idea to rent a Ferrari for the baaraat in order to make the wedding more glamourous. Now that the idea is sold, she found herself in a fix since Rustam informs her that the only Ferrari in the city belongs to the one and only Sachin Tendulkar and there is no way he would let her rent it for a day. Baboo Didi wants Rusy to request his father to pull some strings due to his cricket past and to try and get Sachin to lease his car. The movie comes from the director that gave the world super-hits like Munnabhai and 3 Idiots. Unfortunately, with such acclaimed siblings, the audience had high expectations from the movie which has fallen short of fulfilling such expectations. The story is hugely idealistic, extremely Bollywood-isque and is predictable to an extent. Its a pure family entertainer and is not made to win accolades at any awards ceremony. The performances though are simply outstanding and the man who shines above all is Boman Irani. Is performance of the old and grumpy Parsi ‘bawa’ comes natural to him but he decided to garnish it a bit to make it even better. Worth one watch but fireworks wont be shooting at the end of it.
