Paramvir Singh (Sunny Deol) is a NRI living in Canada with his Canadian wife, Indian mother and two Sikh sons. One day, a Canadian visitor sees a picture (hanging on a wall across the room) of Parmvir’s father and mentions that he and his NRI wife had been cheated by him while on a recent trip to India. Upon hearing this, Paramvir and his mother become shocked, as they hadn’t heard from Paramir’s father in years, nor knew anything about the state of his Paramir’s younger brother (Bobby Deol) who was said to have been working with his father at conning people out of their money.

Paramir decides that his family has been apart for so long and he must reunite everyone before his mother dies. So he leaves for India, and upon arriving at the city where his father is said to reside, he gets conned when he tries to exchange Candian dollars to Indian Rupees by non-other than his little brother (Bobby Deol). From there, Paramir tries to gain the affection of his doubtful, con artist family while trying to avoid a second marriage to a brutal Sikh family.

Our Rating: 8/10

The film starts out a little slow, but kicks up into a wildly mad ride, with buildings crashing and people getting thrashed. This film is a fun watch, I recommend it as a comedy with a great unexpected plot, and deep roots and family ties. The film gets really good and fun in the middle half, check it out for some crazy fun Punjabi-conman-Canadian-flavor or should I say Caneda?
