He?s not just the proverbial blue-eyed boy. Chirag Paswan, son of a politico Ram Vilas Paswan, wears glaringly blue contact lenses framed by sweeping eyelashes.

This is not so much a film, as it is Chirag Paswan?s launch-pad. So naturally, the story revolves around this character and has three beautiful heroines shedding tears over him.

Chirag?s (Chirag Paswan) parents separated a while ago. Trivializing the very serious issues that lead to a break-up of a marriage, this one cites an innocuous sport as the reason.

You see, the father (Kabir Bedi) was busy playing tennis when the mother (Poonam Dhillon) was delivering the baby. This caused a rift and eventually led them to separate. So the single mother, now a businesswoman, is adamant against the son Chirag playing tennis. He sneaks out at night to practice.

In the tug-of-war between the warring parents, each of them races to choose the perfect bride for their son. The mother chooses a London-based fashion designer (Sagarika Ghatge), while the father chooses his friend?s daughter from Bhatinda (Neeru Bajwa) who, we are told, cooks really delicious chicken.

Honestly, the way parents toss their grown-up children around, is highly objectionable. Across the board, no parent acknowledges the child?s choice in the matter of marriage. It?s nuts, really.

So a Punjabi father breaks up his daughter?s engagement amidst celebrations, just because a friend confesses he always wanted her to marry his son. Another feigns a health problem to get the son to hook-up with a stranger. And so on?

Paswan has the fit body and the actor?s face, but needs to catch up on the acting alphabets. Kangna Ranaut is the ditzy clumsy girl yet again, but plays it with her trademark charm. The other two actresses look smashing and give reasonably competent performances, despite the madcap characterization.

Writer-director Tanveer Khan?s film often makes little sense. I mean showing a businessman?s affairs grabbing headlines of a national paper is a bit much, no? The motives for why the characters behave the way they do is a mystery. On the other hand, the ending is super-predictable. Miley Naa Miley Hum (what a tongue-twister of a title) is archaic and ho-hum.
