This film set in Agra, is a very wafer thin and flimsy plot bordering on how a young couple ties the knot to escape familial pressure but even as the girl Ira Mishra (Saee Manjrekar) aspires to be an IAS officer, her husband Heer Chawla (Guru Randhawa) pledges to support her in every way and though a misunderstanding makes the family believe she’s pregnant, the confusion lingers erupting into a volcano of sorts.

When Heer’s grandfather Brij Bhushan Chawla (Anupam Kher), has this only dream to become a great-grandfather and pressurizes the young couple to marry and take the family line forward, the couple comes up with a perfect plan to fake a pregnancy so that Ira is relieved of household duties and is able to focus on preparing for her exams.

Written by Raj Saluja, Niket Pandey, Vijay Pal Singh and Shobhit Sinha, the loud and verbose film abounds with quirky and loud family members, outlandish situations, and an over-the-top drama that set out to make director G Ashok’s comedy-drama formulaic in both content and characters.

The 1slapstick social comedy with a 125-minute runtime, Kuchh Khatta Ho Jaay has Guru Randhawa in a likable role as a young and goofy guy, while Saee Manjrekar is passable. Anupam Kher is as usual able to regale the viewers with his brand of blend of comedy and seriousness while Ila Arun as a loud and motherly chachi plays her parts well. Paritosh Tripathi is good as a snarky adopted son though his is a role which can easily be dispensable.

As far as the technical side of the film is concerned, the cinematographers Jayesh Sen and R M Swamy have not wasted the opportunity to show their prowess and succeed in capturing the beauty of the city of Agra from Fatehpur Sikri to the sunset at the Taj Mahal extremely well, while Guru Randhawa, Sachet-Parampara, Meet Bros, Nilesh Ahuja, and Sadhu Sushil Tiwari deliver an eclectic soundtrack with catchy ditties like Ishare Tere and romantic numbers like Jeena Sikhaya, which are easily hummable.
