and Laddi aka Phattu is nebbish and clumsy. As they’re hanging out in the village, they look upwards in the sky and point to a distant plane saying, “Look.. The flight to Canada!” However, their parents are not supportive of their pursuit to settle abroad. The three come across a travel agent, Chawla, who ensures them a visa and flight to Canada for Rs 15 million for each one of them. They are aware that that won’t get this kind of financial support from their parents. As they are hanging out, they encounter Minto and Shurli, the two men originally from their village and whom the three friends have known since childhood, now apparently settled in Canada. Minto alleges that he has worked really hard in Canada to become a successful businessman today and invites the entire village for a party, later that night. After meeting them, the three friends now get fully charged up for going to Canada. They somehow manage to accumulate the money and give it to Chawla. However, Chawla informs that they need to take a layover in Bangkok for 3 days and then catch the onward flight to Canada. The three bid farewell to their families and board the plane.

Upon their arrival in Bangkok, they check-in to a hotel arranged by Chawla. They learn that the hotel is owned by a rich Punjabi businessman, Kabir Gill. They notice two girls by the swimming pool of the hotel, and they mistake them for Kabir’s sisters. The three get a little anxious as it has been two days and they haven’t heard from Chawla. Chawla falsely assures them they would get the tickets the next day; and then he breaks his SIM card and shuts his shop for good. On completion of their three days of their stay, the hotel throws them out as Chawla did not make the payment. As the three friends are now getting frustrated on the streets of Bangkok, a Punjabi man, who is a garage owner, offers them assistance with employment, food and housing. The three now realize that they’ve become victims of scam by Chawla. One day, Jigar and Harry capitalize their visit to Kabir’s house for delivering his car from their garage. They intent on getting into a relationship to Kabir’s “sisters” so that they could get a share of his enormous property and business. They introduce themselves as rich diamond merchants and begin relationships, Jigar with Roop and Harry with Gurnoor. Laddi meets a Punjabi girl named Sona at a club and the two hook up.

When the three friends are going around on the streets of Bangkok, they spot Minto and Shurli – the two guys from their village who claimed to be living in Canada. The three figure out that Minto is a actually a pimp and Shurli is his associate. They threaten the two that they would disclose their reality and start blackmailing Minto and also quit their garage job. Getting despondent with their demands, Minto & Shurli decide to get the three killed and hire a contract killer, Babbu Don. Shurli informs Laddi about the proposed assassination and demands 7,000 Bath for giving that information. The trio approaches the garage owner for help. In the meantime, Jigar and Harry proposes to their girlfriends and they say yes. Laddi tells the entire events to Sona, that how the three of them ended up in Bangkok. Jigar and Harry join them and Laddi informs his friends that Sona is, in fact, the garage owner’s sister. Roop and Gurnoor follow. The garage owner arrives and Roop and Gurnoor come to know that Jigar and Harry work at the garage and are not diamond merchants. Kabir’s wife also reaches there and scolds Roop and Gurnoor that they should be home mopping the floor. Jigar and Harry realize that the girls are not Kabir’s sisters but work in house as maids. The three friends call their mothers and confides that they’re stuck in Bangkok and the entire money they spent to immigrate to Canada is mislaid. The mothers advise their sons to come home to Punjab. Jigar and Harry get back with Roop and Gurnoor. Now the three men, their girlfriends and garage owner hatch a plan to get rid of the contract killer by kidnapping Kabir’s wife. Confusion prevails in the entire kidnapping. Babu Don, Kabir, Minto and Shurli are overpowered as a result and the garage owner suggests that those people should be sent to “no man’s land” from where they won’t be able to come back. The film ends in Punjab where the trio are now married with those girls. As their wives get them lunch in the fields, their sons look upwards in the sky and point to a distant plane saying, “Look.. The flight to Canada!” but they’re chided by their fathers for doing that.
