PlotEdit

The film is set on Goa and follows what happens in one crazy day. The story focuses on Steven (Sunil Shetty) and his wife Nancy (Aarti Chabria) who currently live with Steven's mother and plan to purchase their own flat soon. The film begins with the death of Steven's father. Steven organises the whole funeral by himself and the guests begin to arrive. Steven's brother Brian (Ashish Chaudhary), a renowned novelist living in Mumbai, also arrives. Everyone is expecting Brian to give the farewell speech since he is a novelist, however he has nothing planned, and he is intending on Steven to do the speech. Every time Steven tries to start his speech someone always interrupts and the speech is delayed. A short man named Andrew (Rajpal Yadav) introduces himself to Steven and asks to speak to him in private. Andrew tells him that he was Steven's father's gay lover. Surprised, Steven tells Brian this. Andrew blackmails them and demands money to keep this a secret. By this time, Steven's crazy family arrive. This film is the story of one mad and hilarious day at a funeral and how things get from normal to mayhem in just a few hours.
