Mere Dad Ki Maruti (MDKM) is an outrageous comedy set against the backdrop of a loud Punjabi wedding in Chandigarh. MDKM tells the story of a boy who sneaks his dad's fancy new car out to impress the college hottie and how all hell breaks loose when he loses it!
There's some nice chemistry between Sameer and his faithful buddy Gattu who together make varied attempts to replace the missing car before Daddyji finds out. Their banter alone makes for some of the film's funniest moments. If you don't understand Punjabi, it would be advisable to take along a friend who does. Not hard to like, don't expect much more.

This isn't a laugh-out-loud comic romp. But some of the gags the film rustles up are genuinely funny and bear the stamp of a degree of cleverness that one rarely encounters in an average Mumbai comedy.
Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV - March 15, 2013
Don't expect an out-and-out comedy, the film is a light-hearted family entertainer with a message for the youth. Do take your dad along for it, in his gaddi!

On the whole, Mere Dad Ki Maruti won't disappoint you. The film takes the audience on a roller coaster ride that will leave them roar with laughter. You'll love this 'papa-beta' combo.
