Produced by Vashu Bhagnani and directed by Sajid Khan, HUMSHAKALS stars Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor in lead roles. The movie also features Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta, Tammannah Bhatia, Satish Shah and Chunkey Pandey also in the supporting roles.
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 brother-like friend. The second pairing has both Saif and Riteish playing mentally challenged 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, Tamannah and Esha provide sizzle and oomph on the celluloid and romance to the plot.
