When a mobster (Anil Kapoor) hires call-center operator Jimmy Cliff (Saif Ali Khan) as an English tutor, Jimmy gets into trouble and winds up on a wacky road-trip with a beautiful thief (Kareena Kapoor) and a sneering thug. Akshay Kumar is hilarious as the thug who resents Jimmy, a man frequently praised for speaking “just like George Bush.” Tashan‘s jokes, many of which are in English, are funny and make up for the clumsy action sequences.

No Rating (violence, language); 148 minutes
