In fact, its situational comedy is a lesson in comic timing and how to carry off a slapstick humour. This amazingly funny film revolves around an eligible bachelor who falls in love with a gangster’s sister, and how he creates confusion to have his way. Since then, Bazmee has directed Singh Is Kinng, No Problem, Thank You, Ready and Welcome Back. All these films had the theme of marriage at the centre.
Bazmee’s latest Mubarakan follows a similar trajectory, with a double-role angle. Separated in childhood, twins, Karan and Charan (both played by Arjun Kapoor) are expected to marry as per their guardians’ wishes, but they are already in love with Sweety (Ileana D’Cruz) and Nafisa (Neha Sharma).
Things get complicated when Charan gets engaged to a another girl, Binkal (Athiya Shetty) in London. The shy guy couldn’t gather the courage to tell his parents about his love life and that leads to a big-intra family feud that ends when Charan’s uncle swears to marry him off in exactly one month.
However, Kartar Singh (Anil Kapoor) is yet to arrive and add more confusion to the already-messed up affair.
