Marriages are as an integral part of Indian cinema as they are a part of Indian culture. Be it about arranging marriages, finding the special someone or, as in the case of Dhula Mil Gaya, avoiding the special someone.

The rest of the story is about how Samarpreet aka Samara gets to her happy ending with her prince charming with the help of Donsai’s diva friend Shimmer (Sushmita Sen) who is adamant to get the naive Samarpreet the love of her life and teach her good friend a lesson of a lifetime!
