After dull and dry spell at the box-office, this summer vacation brings out downpour of comical delights and HASTEY HASTEY is presumed to be one of such "cool" offerings. Comical flicks have never been great on melodic quotient but have certainly provided amusing fan-fare for its upbeat titillating musical outburst. After sloppy ANAMIKA and notable WOODSTOCK VILLA, veteran Anu Malik along with dependable Sameer gets into the proceeding for this comical caper. Like its stumpy profile and undistinguished face value, the album too disappoints with its lackluster display an d adds another blob in the credits of ever-fighting composer.

The movie stars Jimmy Shergill with newcomers Nisha Rawal and Monishka Gupta.
Neel (Jimmy) is a brilliant student at Columbia University. His pedantic personality and his charming looks have Maya (Nisha), an upper-class Catholic-Indian girl, floored. It is a two-sided love which looks like headed to the altar until Neel’s career ambition gets the better of him.

Sunny (Rajpal Yadav) is Neel’s roommate and a close friend with an incurable inclination towards flirting with girls. Though he flirts, his heart beats only for one girl – a stunning blonde named Tina.Neel and Maya’s love story is put in limbo when he travels to India to start a call centre. In this initiative he is helped by an enterprising Tanvi (Monishka) who has a crush on Neel. But when Neel rebuffs Tanvi’s advances, she plots revenge. She hatches a conspiracy and Neel finds himself stuck in a scam. ‘Hastey Hastey’ becomes somewhat watchable thanks to Jimmy Shergill and Rajpal Yadav . Though Jimmy’s performance appears half-hearted at places, overall he manages to carry the film on his shoulders. Rajpal Yadav chips in some light moments. Newbie Nisha Rawal and Monishka Gupta have great scope for improvement as far as acting is concerned.
