The film starts in London. Three robbers attempt to steal jewels from a building, but are captured by the police. Six years later, Batook Patel (Boman Irani), a wealthy and successful businessman, is shown disapproving marriage of his three beautiful daughters, Ganga (Jacqueline Fernandez), Jamuna (Lisa Haydon), and Saraswati (Nargis Fakhri), as he believes that the previous ladies in his family were doomed because of marrying.
One night, at a friend's party, the girls reveal to their friend that secretly, they each have a boyfriend who are Teddy (Riteish Deshmukh), a wannabe racer, Bunty (Abhishek Bachchan), who wants to be a rapper and Sandy (Akshay Kumar), who wants to own his own football club. When the girls tell their dad about them, Batook takes help of a restaurant owner Aakhri Pasta (Chunkey Pandey) who dresses up as the family's fortune teller who claims that when the girl's husbands first see, speak to, or step foot into Batook's house, Batook will die. The girls, wanting to keep their boyfriends, make them have fake disabilities. Sandy pretends to be crippled, Teddy blind and Bunty mute. At Pasta's restaurant, Batook reveals to Pasta that his daughters are actually the daughters of Urja Nagre (Jackie Shroff), an underworld crime lord who handed the girls promising not to reveal his name to them as he was in jail. Batook has planned to marry the girls to his three sons, the robbers who tried to steal the jewels. Unbeknownst to him, Nagre has arrived in London.
While the girls prepare a wax statue for Batook, the boys go into town, where the boys are observed by him to be disabled. Bunty, appears crippled, Sandy blind and Teddy mute. Later, Nagre asks Batook, about his daughters's future husbands. Batook says that he knows three normal men who are suitable for the daughters. Batook takes Nagre to a Gurdwara to see his sons, Rishi (Samir Kochhar), Rohan (Nikitin Dheer), and Rajeev (Aarav Chowdhary), claiming they are orphans who do community service. Nagre chooses the three suitable for his daughters.
At Batook's house, Nagre claims that Batook owes him 50 million pounds. Nagre gives the boys 10 days to make up the money, or the girls must marry 'the chosen boys'. During these 10 days, Nagre and "his sons" will also live in Batook's house, meaning that the girls' boyfriends must act in front of just as they were observed by Batook and Nagre. During a party, the girls get Rishi, Rohan, and Rajeev drunk. The next day, they are happy to have sex with their respective girls, only to find out that they had sex with the maids. The maids request compensation, or they will sue them. Nagre surrenders to his daughters' pleas of love.
The next day, the girls take their boys to church, for confession because they felt that they were mocking disables by having the boys act as if they were disabled. After this, the boys feel guilty, as they were marrying the girls only for money. They go to the warehouse of Madame Tussauds to meet their girlfriends. They instead find Batook's sons whose goons attack them. While Teddy and Bunty fight them, Sandy hears Teddy say "Indian", and Sundi arrives, trying to kill Sandy. Batook also arrives who is blackmailed by the boys to divide Nagre's fortune into 7 shares. More people come as shares increase considerably. Nagre arrives, and attempts to kill everyone in the warehouse, while the lights turn on and off. As the girls arrive, Rishi, Rohan, and Rajeev see them, and hold them at knifepoint in front of Nagre. Sandy, Teddy, and Bunty then rush to save the girls, injuring themselves in the process. The girls forgive the boys, and Batook reveals the whole story planning and the girls and their boyfriends reconcile with Urja Nagre, the girls real father.
