Continuing with his trademark genre of “No. 1” titled films, David Dhavan directs this comedy tale of three friends, Raj, Veer and Aryaan, played by Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan and Sharman Joshi. They are successful and married but always find some reason to complain. Raj loves to party but his wife Bhavana, played by Ayesha Takia, prefers spirituality and pooja in the prayer room.

Things change for the guys when they come across three beauties named Dimple, Madhuri and Rekha. But their happiness is short-lived when Lucky Bhaiya, played by Sanjay Dutt, enters their lives. His motto is clear, be faithful or live in fear! Lucky Bhaiya will stop at nothing to make the three wives suspicious. The makers say what follows is a fun-filled ride that promises lots of laughs and entertainment.

Ayesha Takia and Vivek Oberoi star in “Home Delivery.”
Popular “Jhankaar Beats” director Sujoy Ghosh offers up more cool and innovative inspirations in this unusually titled film. The main characters are Sunny, played by Vivek Oberoi, a cynical newspaper advice columnist and Michael, played by Boman Irani, an optimistic, simple-minded pizza delivery guy who is lucky to keep a job for two days. Sunny is a prankster who believes he is a self-made man. All of his successes are a result of his own hard work and nothing else. His cynical views extend to marriage and even Diwali. Ayesha Takia plays Jenny, Sunny’s fiancée; she has invited him for Diwali dinner with her parents. But Sunny has greater matters on his mind; he has to complete a prestigious screenplay assignment for Karan Johar. He also has a date with a former filmi superstar, Maya, played by Mahima Choudhary. Maya is looking to make a comeback and uses this opportunity to land a prominent role. Realizing there is no food at home, Sunny orders a pizza, which Michael must deliver. But the makers declare the delivery is much more than dinner! Watch for special appearances by Karan Johar and Juhi Chawla.

“The Kumars at No. 42” are arriving on Nov. 8 in the U.S.

The Kumars are coming to town.

Make that into your family and living rooms.

One of BBC America’s top three shows since it premiered in August 2004, “The Kumars at No. 42” features a “typical” Indian family living in the north of London.

The four have hit upon a unique method of “Keeping up with the Joneses” by transforming their backyard into a state-of-the-art TV studio from where they host their very own talk show.

A DVD of the series will be available in North America for $24.98 as of Nov. 8. Bonus features include writers’ commentary, tour of No. 42, deleted scenes, photo album and trailers.

The Kumar family consists of the son, aspiring host Sanjeev (Sanjeev Bhaskar), who pops the questions while his mother Madhuri (Indira Joshi), father Ashwin (Vincent Abraham), and mischievous granny Sushila (Meera Syal), interrupt from a nearby sofa with wildly inappropriate and irrelevant questions. Featured guest stars on the DVD include Minnie Driver, Richard E. Grant and former Spice Girl Mel B.

This comedy has garnered numerous awards, including a 2005 Peabody Award, two International Emmys (in 2003 and 2002), the 2002 British Comedy Award for Best New TV Comedy and a 2002 BAFTA Award nomination for Best Comedy Program upon its premiere in the UK.

To get a copy of the DVD, check out the Web site or your local stores.
