The world has been struck by the financial meltdown. But Jerry Patel (Akshay Kumar) and Nick Mathur (John Abraham) don't feel a thing in their comfortable pad in London. Nick feels smug with his successful investment banking job, the new bonus in his pocket and his beautiful fianc, Radhika (Deepika Padukone), by his side, while Jerry is so used to scraping the bottom of the barrel and living off his best buddy Nick, that recession feels like home. But life has a way of pulling the rug from under our feet. Nick and Jerry stop smiling the day Nick's company decides to downsize and unceremoniously fires him. And Jerry is informed by the Social Services that his nephew Veer, whom Jerry is local guardian to, will be placed in a foster home unless he gets a steady job.
