Akshay Kumar plays Tees Maar Khan, a con man hired to rob a moving train of its cargo of priceless antiques. The plan: Pretend to shoot a movie, enlisting the help of an entire village to do the deed. He's helped, somewhat, by his ambitious starlet girlfriend (Katrina Kaif) and a movie actor (Akshaye Khanna) who lusts after the Oscar attention heaped on Dumbdog Millionaire
and one of its stars—and 24
actor—Anil Kapoor. Farah Khan, whose first two films were blockbusters, is likely the world's top grossing woman director. Unfortunately, she relied this time on a script by her husband, Shirish Kunder, a dodgier screenwriter, who liberally sampled from Peter Sellers' After the Fox
(1966). There's definitely some merriment—and one inescapably catchy song, "Sheila ki Jawaani," in which Katrina shakes it like Shakira. Look it up on YouTube.
