The plot isn't new. In fact it's a bit like old wine in a new bottle. “But some things get better with age,” said actor Ajay Devgn, “and that's what my new film does.”

He expects his most recent venture to rock the theatres because it was a film “that could be watched by anybody, and in any company. It's a situation that almost every Indian household will identify with and that is what is so great about the film.” He added that the film was a comedy, the kind that makes one feel good.

“It's like watching a Hrishikesh Mukerjee film - timeless, one can see them any number of times,” said he. “I know the plot isn't new but there are some things that get better with age and this film, ‘Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge’ is one of those. The treatment is the novelty factor and I am sure the audiences will lap it up,” he added.
