"Garam Masala" ( _hi. गरम मसाला) is a Bollywood film, released in 2005. The film is remake of a 1985 Malayalam film directed by Priyadarshan called "Boeing Boeing", itself a remake of "Boeing Boeing (1965 film)". Garam Masala stars Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Rimi Sen, Neha Dhupia, Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav. Akshay Kumar received the Best Actor in a Comic Role for his performance at the Filmfare Awards.


The movie starts off when two photographers Shyam (John Abraham) and Mac (Akshay Kumar) are doing a photo shoot. While Macrand is shooting the models in various exposing poses, his fiance leaves in disgust due to Mac's closeness to the models. Their boss calls them into his office and tells them that they are good-for-nothing photographers. He threatens to reduce their pay if they don't get some good pictures for the World Photography competition to make his magazine "Garam Masala" famous.

Both Mac and Sam ask Maggie (Neha Dhupia), the boss's secretary, on a date on the same day, at the same restaurant at the same time. As all three meet up at the restaurant a pickpocket takes both Mac's and Sam's wallets. After the meal, the competition to impress Maggie heightens thus evoking humorous events after which both Sam and Mac leave Maggie to pay the bill.

Sam visits a famous photographer, praising him and asking for a few outstanding shots. These stolen shots help Sam to win World photography competition. He gets promoted in his job, is given ten percent of the prize money and has his pay doubled, whilst Mac receives a demotion to assistant. Sam flies off to the USA to enjoy his holiday, leaving Mac fuming in Mauritius.

The chief editor persuades Mac to show up Sam by getting three women to be his fiancees, getting a very expensive flat and driving very expensive, imported cars. Following his promise, Mac gets access to a high quality flat, and also gets access to three beautiful air-hostesses. His driver, Babban (Rajpal Yadav), is his key to the high life. Not only does Babban get Mac access to his high quality flat, but also delivers him very high-end cars to impress his fiancees. He also drives Mac's cars and does all his services for a small few of liquor every day. Lastly, Babban gets Mac access to a housekeeper, Mambo (Paresh Rawal), who has an attitude problem and doesn't care what goes on in his flat so long as his demands are met.

He continues an affair with each of the three girls—Deepti (Daisy Bopanna), Puja (Nargis Bagheri) and Sweety (Neetu Chandra)—and creates chaos. Sam returns from America, only to find his friend turned rival, playing around with three girls at the same time. He tries to help his friend and tries out his own luck with the girls.The story turns into mayhem when it's hard for the two boys to maintain the three girls simultaneously. Mac's original fiancee (Rimi Sen), learns about Mac's acts, and it creates a bigger mess. When their cook Mambo (Paresh Rawal) leaves them, they begin to realise their mistakes and Mac decides to try and get back together with Anjali.
