That makes it 4 children every second.

Which means by the

time you reach home...

...there will be 23625 babies born.

According to my

science teacher's theory...

be classified into 3 categories.

- Parent's favorites.

They love their parents and

listen to everything they say.

Obviously the parents

are nothing but happy.

- The Rebels.

Yes, the revolutionaries.

But unlike Bhagat Singh, their

enemies are not the British...

...but their very own parents.

l doesn't matter how much

you scream and shout at them...

...it makes no damn difference

Then the 3rd kind

- The smart ass.

They listen to everyone, but

do what they feel like doing.

Their parents feel lucky

to have such obedient kids.

But obedient are those who wait

outside their house post midnight.

Which category am l from?

That's me. The fourth kind.

l wanted to fly but

somehow couldn't unclip my wings.

And my mom dad.

Did you win a silver medal son?

No, no, no! You've lost a gold.

lt's no big deal baby.

From tomorrow instead of swimming,

we'll try golf.

Anyway, chlorine's not

too good for your skin.

Dad wanted a gold medal

and mom, a perfect face...

and to achieve that they

decided everything for me.


My sports.

My food.

My school.


And before l knew it,

l was an architect.

Dad sent me to Vegas

for work experience.

The hub of

architecture and construction.

This is my office, Marshal & Fox.

The 11th best

architectural firm in the world

But my dad wanted to

see me in the top two.

His plan was, that after l

got 2 years work experience,

l'd join his

construction business in lndia.

And mom's plan was to get me

married off to one of her...


friend's socialite daughter.

But maybe life had a

different plan in store for me.

That's me, Rahul Kapoor, son

of reputed Mr. and Mrs. Kapoor.

And l've just been sacked.

And what bad timing, mom and

dad were in Vegas for Christmas

and a business meeting.

And this is the story of

the following two weeks,

that turned my life upside down.

What is this Rahul?

l could sketch better than

this when l was in school.

l mean this one is..

l was twenty-five years old

and still found myself

tongue tied in front of my father.

This is basics Rahul, basics.

Where did you get

this red bow tie from?

Mom said umm..

The Bulani's called again,

let's leave.

Mom said the red bow tie's nice..

That's why l thought l would..

Should l change?

Rahul! Move.

Baby, you're hairstyle

looks really old fashioned.

Try something new.

Drop in at Vidal Sassoon Salon.

Use a little product, texture.

Give it some zing.

You should listen to your mother,

She's done her MBA in hairstyling.

lf only l had, l could have

done something about your hair.

l'm tired of telling you to get a

hair transplant like Mr. Sarabhai.

You're already looking

like you're fifty years old.

l'm fifty-five.

Every family has a tradition,

and not communicating while

travelling in a car was ours.

Remember, behave like a Kapoor.

You must.. lmpress them.

Speak intelligently, talk

about Obama's finance policy.

You leave 'the Obama' talks to me

and concentrate on keeping

his newly-wed wife entertained.

And, baby ..

- Adjust your bow.

Wow! Wow!

So you're climbing the

staircase to success huh?

How's work going?

lt's going okay, Sir.

l like. Modest.

You know D.K.

Rahul's career's in your hands now.

Yes, yes. Of course.

Rahul, come here.


ls it about a girl?

Sorry Sir?

Your girlfriend, Jethmalani's

daughter, who lives here in Vegas?



- We broke up last year.

And you're still upset about it?


Then what is your problem my boy?

Look at yourself.

You're so stiff. Like this..

You need to do Yoga,


You watch me, hmm

- Hold this.

Hold this.


See, you're body will

become completely free.

Try it.

Come on try it .. try.

Stop, stop, stop.

Yoga can't help you.

You need sex.

Lots and lots and lots of sex.

Take this.

Best escort service in Vegas

Call for home delivery.

What home delivery honey?

Pizza. Baby loves pizza.

lt's a great place, where

you get all sorts of toppings.

Russian, ltalian or

best of all topless.

lf you're this excited with the card,

imagine how excited you'll

be once it's home delivered.

Sir, l'm going to excuse

myself to go to the bathroom.

Aah! Not too bad.

Oh! Thank God!

lmagine if you

required plastic surgery.

lt's not a chartered flight,

we'll be late.

lf a Nobel prize was

given for being on time,

Your father would have won

a couple of them by now.

lt's high time you

get serious now, Rahul.

Start concentrating on your work.

You've been given everything

you've ever wanted. Right?

Rahul, l'm still

waiting for that gold.

And by the way, Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas

Of course, l completely forgot.

Merry Christmas, baby.

Get a haircut.

Sam's an A grade idiot, mom.

He's an a**hole, a total jerk.

l'm being dramatic?

Mom he cheated on me.

And now like always, he's

sending his friends to spy on me.

Just to see how miserable l am.

l'm so over him.

Mom, if l see him or any

of his friends anywhere,

l'm telling you, l'm

going to kill him.

Mom, l have decided l am

going to a psychologist.

No mom. l'm not a drama queen.

l've given seven interviews and

haven't got a single call back.

l'm feeling low.

l need to feel normal.

l need help.
