Heyy Babyy - what's up with the double y's?

Heyy Babyy is about three best friends Aroush (Akshay Kumar), Ali (Fardeen Khan), and Tanmay (Ritiesh Deshmukh) who are bachelors and are having the time of their lives. Until one day, a baby is placed at their doorstep to take care of since one of the is the father. But which guy? And who is the mother?

Yes, Heyy Babyy is the Bollywood version of Three Men and a Baby. I rolled my eyes at this movie at first because I knew it would be stupid - Three Men a Baby's storyline is so 90s. Plus you have three wannabe hip hop guys who think they are stud with a modern Vidya (she's been in traditional wear in all of her previous films) What's up with three guys? I've been seeing three - is that a lucky number? Think Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat, Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, Shaadi No 1, Masti, etc. Also what's up with the double y's? Trying to make the title sound cool? After a long delay and watching arty Indian cinema, I decided to give this movie a try. Why not? I needed a good laugh. The music is great to dance to and I've been hearing the title song and "Mast Kalandar" everywhere!

Intro is cute and funny. Narrated by Akshay Kumar's character - Aroush - such a sexy voice too! First Tanmay is introduce. Teddy Tanmay who dresses up during the day time as a big, fluffy teddy bear to entertain little kids. At night, he entertains the ladies.

Ali aka Al. Don't you know it's more cool to sound less desi? A favorite to ladies, he loves to have fun and gamble. Most of the time, gambling to see which lady who will take home at night.

Let's not forget the narrator - Akoush. Three best friends. BFF for life! He's the confident stud who doesn't worry about his life. Not even the different ladies he's been with.

Then you have the cute baby Angel. She is sooo adorable!! This little girl turn these careless bachelors around. She help made them think about their lives and how selfish they have been to the females they've been with.

Vidya Balan is so beautiful. Many people criticize her modern look but I think she looks good either way. However, I do prefer her with traditional wear. She has that golden oldies look that matches traditional outfits more. It was good to see her go glamorous and modern. She's one of the few newcomers now that is really good. Isha is the mother of the cute Angel.

It's always great to see Bomran Irani on the screen. Many will remember him from Main Hoon Naa. He plays the father who was looking out for his daughter Isha but realizes his mistakes.

Overall, Heyy Babyy is not a great movie but it's worth it if you want brainless humor.
There were a lot of guest appearances in this movie. Not as many as Om Shanti Om though. I was pleased and surprise to see all the guest appearances (maybe I will review Om Shanti Om - I have the dvd and I saw it in the theater a while back).

The title song, which is the first song of the movie and an intro to the movie after Akshay Kumar narrates his friends and him. Who better than to start off an item song than the famous item girl, the hot MILF in Bollywood (I don't care what anyone says. I would die to have a body like her - she's a mom and is looking hot!!) Malaika Arora-Khan! I knew it was her when I saw the back of her figure and legs.

Celina Jaitley - not a fan of hers but I do think she's gorgeous

Minissha Lamba - like her, think she's good

Amrita Rao - cute girl, couldn't get a good cap of her

Tara Sharma - cute girl, I was waiting to see her big sis Kim in this song. Kim is seen more in Bollywood but Tara is cuter

Neha Dhupia - Knew she would be in this song. She's famous for being sexy. If Celina is in this song, why not Neha?

Dia Mirza - She's so adorable and cute. There's something about her that I really like. I don't think she's the best actress but I do like seeing her on screen.

Amisha Patel - for some reason, I was surprise to see her in this song. I'm not impress with her dancing and she used to be a bigger name back in the Kaho Naa Pyar Hai days but I do think she is cute. Hopefully I will see more Gadar films from her.

Sophiya Chaudhry - I'm a fan of her music. Love her voice! Most people don't like remixing Bollywood oldies into more modern, club upbeat songs but I love her style.

Masumi Makhija - I had to look her up. She was the only girl in this song I didn't know. I realized she's the girl opposite Jimmy Shergill in Dus Kahaniyan. She did a good job in the movie. She's really pretty and would like to see more of her.

Riya Sen - not really surprise to see her. I think she's one of the most beautiful Indian ladies. However, she can not act to save her life! Her sister Raima is a good actress though.

Koena Mitra
- she's one of the best and underrated dancers in Bollywood. Loved her ever since I saw her in Road in the "Khullam Khulla Kare" song. I think she's gorgeous even though she's looking plastic lately.

Amirta Arora
- wasn't surprised at all seeing her. Even though she's not as hot as sexy as her MILF older sister, I think she's cute.

Shamita Shetty - quite surprise to see her since she's the younger, infamous sister of Shilpa Shetty. Haven't seen her in a while. I would prefer seeing her do the whole song since she's a good dancer too.

Hrishtaa Bhatt - although she wasn't in the song, it was good just to see her. I think she's really cute. Most people will remember seeing her in Asoka. I think she looks like the Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano and the Telugu turn Hindi actress Genelia.

Shah Rukh Khan
- almost forgot about him being in the movie. It was good seeing him for a few second. He looks really skinny in the movie and don't like the long hair in a ponytail.

Kim Sharma - if her little sister is in the movie, why not her?

3 Men and a Baby was a remake of a French film, so I don't have a problem with that aspect of it. I think I'll add it to the queue. Vidya looks gorgeous!
