So a middle-aged star and another more than halfway there strip down and gyrate among equally underclothed women in song after song. The aforesaid Jerry (Kumar) and Nick (Abraham) are working as “male escorts”,you see,after recession took care of their jobs.

Recession is a word that occurs most often in this film,followed closely by sex one way or the other. One of their rules,not surprisingly,is that they won’t sleep with these women. But then again,Jerry leaves a woman in the morning as she lovingly hands him a card saying “thanks for last night”. Presumably he danced all night,around a bed?

There are girlfriends,but both the sorry Radhika (Padukone) and the sorrier Tanya (Singh) are happy to overlook their gig on the wild side. While Radhika’s father allows a repentant Nick to park in their lawn in a fluorescent van and sing some more songs,Tanya is an economics teacher who helps Jerry finish his college by promising to remove a piece of clothing should he get an answer right.

It all happens in London and Trinity College,full everywhere of desis. Last heard,nobody is complaining.
