Money Hai Toh Honey Hai is a striking comedy, which deals with six individual characters. Bobby Arora (Govinda), who is a happy go lucky guy, who runs away from home to prove himself as a to-do child. Lallabhai (Manoj Bajpai) becomes wealthy after his win of 1 crore rupees in lottery. But he’s back on the road as his business fails and he loses all his money. Gaurav (Aftab Shivdasani), a copy writer who is fired from his job. Manik (Upen Patel), who is a struggling model who sleeps with a middle-aged fashion designer, hoping to make it big. Ashima Kapoor (Hansika Motwani), a successful TV star but she’s not happy with her career and is desperate to do films as the lead heroine. Shruti (Celina Jaitley) is a struggling dress designer.

One fine day, they all get an SMS informing them that they are the owners of Shahenshah Jaiswal's (Prem Chopra) 1000 crore company. However, their happiness do not last long for their lawyer reveals that there’s a loan of 1200 crore on the company and they must repay it and until the loan is repaid, they would be kept under house arrest. So, using the extra cloth left from the failing send to Korea they make garments. But not just any, the type they make is enough for an ordinary person to buy. They display that in a fashion show, getting ordinary people from the street. At the end, they succeed and keep on making more stores for other parts of India with the help of the bank. The movie ends with Bobby and Ashima getting married.



Critical reception

Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN rated it 2/5: "Sorely lacking in drama and genuine humour, Money Hai Toh Honey is mind-numbingly dull because there’s no conflict or plot progression, and everything seems to fall into place too conveniently, which even ruins the amazing comedy at the first half!"

Mayank Shekhar of Hindustan Times rated it 2.5/5: "Scenes may well be dull and weak in parts. And they are. But for a comedy film, it needs to have some more sense-of-humor."

Raja Sen of Rediff rated it 1.5/5: "This is, first and foremost, a tacky film. The tastelessness flowing right down into the script, however, makes for a very different league of disaster."

Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama rated it 2/5: "Money Hai Toh Honey Hai is a poor show. Watch the first half and laugh your total head-off, but at the second half, try to enjoy a damp squib!"

Nikhat Kazmi of The Times of India gave it the highest possible rate it got by rating it 3.5/5: "Money Hai Toh Honey made a complete laugh-riot in the first part, but soon after the interval a lot of drama and romance jumps in which is totally something you don't need in a comedy movie, it needed a much smarter script to keep the laughter ringing."
