Garam Masala (2005)
(Released: Nov 2, 2005)
Makrand Godbhole alias Mac (Akshay Kumar) works as a Photographer with a firm, and spends considerable time photographing attractive young women in various attire. His office has provided him with accommodation, and an assistant named Shyam alias Sam (John Abraham). Mac and Sam are both in love with the firm's secretary, Maggie (Neha Dhupia), although Mac is engaged to be married to Dr. Anjali (Rimi Sen). Both do their best to upset the other's plan in order to get in Maggie's good books, often with hilarious results. Then both are entered in a competition for the best photograph, while Mac hustles in vain, Sam actually borrows an old photograph, wins the contest, is promoted as Mac's supervisor, his pay is doubled, he takes over Mac's accommodation, and also goes for a 10 day trip to the United States. When Sam returns back to India, nothing is the same anymore, Mac has moved into a palatial flat, has a cook named Mambo (Rajpal Yadav), and three gorgeous air-hostesses, namely Sweety Nair (Neetu Chandra), Deepti (Daisy Bopanna), and Pooja (Nargis Bagheri), who time share this flat with him, each unaware of the others' presence. Sam is envious of Mac's women, and moves in with Mac - a action that will result in hilarious chaos - as both men must now out-do the other to win the affections of the unsuspecting beauties.
