Plot

Happy (Govinda) is a 40 year old man living in London with his parents (Anupam Kher, Smita Jaykar). He's still a virgin and sleepwalks in the nights. Happy's father seeks the help of his employee (Shakti Kapoor) and his nephews to help Happy lose his virginity, but all efforts turn futile.

The family leaves for Manali, where Happy gets married to Gauri (Yuvika Chaudhary), a girl much younger to him. However, Gauri is up to childish pranks all the while, which results in Happy getting into a physical relationship with a London based model who is in the town for photo shoot. When Gauri discovers the truth, she gets a rude shock. That brings about a change in her attitude.

Controversy

The movie's release was delayed for more than 2 years when the producers Anuj Sharma and Sandeep Kapoor had a fall out. Kapoor approached the Delhi High Court in 2009 seeking recovery of a loan of INR 1.32 crore which he had allegedly advanced to Sharma. Justice V.K. Jain allowed Sharma to go ahead with the film's release after his lawyer deposited a demand draft of INR 1 crore with the court registry. However, the court declined Kapoor's plea to release the amount to him stating "The question of release of money to the petitioner (Kapoor) would be decided after the entire amount is deposited with the court". He also asked Sharma to pay the remaining amount by April 6, 2011.[3]

Reception

Naughty @ 40 opened to negative reviews from critics. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama rated the film with two stars out of five saying, "The film is for the hardcore masses who relish double entendres and saucy jokes."[4] Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN gave the film three stars out of 5 and stated, "Naughty @ 40 is a non-stop laughathon." Anupama Chopra of NDTV gave two and a half stars and commented, "Looked really good with all the trailers, but turned out as one of those rare films that barely get anything right!" Nikhat Kazmi of the Times of India awarded two and a half stars saying, "You have a film that can be an average weekend getaway. Nothing more, not even the plot of the laugh riot The 40-Year-old Virgin."[5]
