    STORY: Kumail Nanjiani is a Pakisthan cab driver and is an aspiring comedian.

    CRITICAL ANALYSIS
    : The movie deals with a real-life romantic track of the protagonist and the foreigner he ultimately marries. The lead actors Kumail Nanjiani plays himself. The film has many funny moments which make it for a hilarious watch. Azmat and Sharmee play her parents in the movie. Anupam Kher as Azmat is appealing and manages to be his best while Sharmee as Zenobia Shroff has done a mediocre job of acting. Self-deprecatory humour keeps the mood alive through and through.The cinematography and background music is average. The film lacks the vitality.

    TRADE ANALYSIS:
    The film did not see any kind of promotions in India and will do low business at the box office. Also Bollywood has been.

    At the box office the film may do low business.
