The plot of the film is similar to the one starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. Jeffery Rozario (Paresh Rawal) a Goan hotelier wants his daughter Sarah (Sara Ali Khan) to marry a millionaire. Raj a porter / coolie (Varun Dhawan) falls in love with her and pretends to be a tycoon. What happens next is a laughter joy ride with hardcore entertainment.
Varun Dhawan has once again proven that he can get into any character effortlessly. Only he could act a role which was earlier played by Govinda. Paresh Rawal is an actor par excellence.
