Mac (Akshay Kumar) is a photographer already engaged to Anjali (Rimii Sen) but he still has time to find himself an empty flat and access to three beautiful air hostesses - Priti ,Sweety and Puja.

He convinces each one of them that she is the one for him.

Onto the scene comes Sam (John Abraham), who happens to his best friend. But this time, he becomes his rival, causing more damage than good for poor old Mac!

Add to this mayhem a mad cook (Paresh Rawal) and you end up with Garam Masala (meaning hot and spicy!)

Garam Masala might be a remake of Priyadarshan's Malayalam film, Boeing Boeing, but this Hindi version will have you in stitches from the minute the film starts.

This time round, Priyadarshan really excels at what he does best and that is directing comedies.

One scene that will remain in your mind is when all three girls end up in Mac's flat and yet manage to avoid seeing each other.

Now that is one heck of a scene to direct! And you don't see many of those in Bollywood films.

The entire film belongs to Akshay Kumar who easily delivers the punch lines at the right moment.

John Abraham provides able support to Akshay whilst Paresh Rawal is just brilliant - he has a natural gift for making you laugh!

All the female stars provide glamour and support to the lead male stars throughout the film and complement the comedic proceedings on screen.

On the whole if it is pure laughter you are looking for then Garam Masala is the film for you.

Looking at the UK box office figures, there is no doubt that Garam Masala has got the thumbs up by the UK audience.

They say laughter is the best medicine this winter. See Garam Masala. It's a laugh riot all the way. You won't regret!
