Carl Casper is an acclaimed chef with a family life that seems as decaying as his artistic freedom. Those frustrations boil over into a raucous viral-videoed public confrontation against a restaurant critic who panned his cooking of food that his boss ordered him to make. Now with his career ruined, Carl’s ex-wife offers an unorthodox solution: refit an old food truck to offer quality cooking on his own terms. Now with his young son, Percy, and old colleague, Tony helping, Carl takes a working trip across America with that truck to rediscover his gastronomic passion. With Percy’s tech expertise and Tony’s enthusiasm, Carl finds that he is creating a travelling sensation. In doing so, Carl discovers that he is serving up not just food, but also a deeper connection with his life and his family that is truly delicious in its own way.




Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta, Tamannaah

Director: Sajid Khan

Synopsis: The plot of the film revolves around three Ashoks (Saif Ali Khan), three Kumars (Riteish Deshmukh) and three Mamajis (Ram Kapoor). The first pairing has Saif playing a billionaire industrialist with a passion for stand-up comedy, while Riteish plays his close friend. The second pairing has both Saif and Riteish playing adults who behave like kids, while the third pairing has both of them enacting roles with slight effeminate touch. Ram Kapoor completes the madness with three different characters. Bipasha, Tamannaah and Esha add some romance to the highly complicated plot.
