Ranbir (Ajay Devgun) is an architect who seems to have got no where in life and is given the thumbs down by nasty girlfriend Pooja (Sonali Bendre) who cannot bear the thought of marrying someone who has achieved nothing and appears to be going no where, despite his show of affection by showing her the house he has built for her on some mountain top in shimla.Ranbir and Khushiâ€™s pathâ€™s cross at a party and after being sacked from her job, realises that she can sneak into Ranbirâ€™s empty half complete abode in Simla.
By a miraculous coincidence, Khushi manages to convince Ranbirâ€™s family that she is engaged to him and continues to live in the half built house when one day, Ranbir arrives to find Khushi showering to the strains of lataâ€™s gorgeous apni prem kahaniyan from mera goan mera desh, a highlight of the film.After the usual tu tu main main, Ranbir realises that Khushi could help him win woo Pooja by making her jealous.Miraculously yet again, Pooja and Khushi have already met and instead oif Khushi running a mile for fear of being discovered as a fraid, she invites Pooja for a lunch to tell her of the romantic man that she is engaged to.So Ranbir and Khushi pretend to be engaged in order to make Pooja jealous and Khushi is only too happy to be a part of Ranbir’s affectionate family.
The film then follows a formulaic path and we all know whatâ€™s going to happen. Khushi helps in rousing the passions in Pooja and Ranbir for each other but falls in love with the man herself. Ranbir is also unsure and seems to veer towards Khushi but is incapable of expressing himself.
