The dream of every middle class man... to own a house…
K.K. Khosla (Anupam Kher) is a middle class man living in New Delhi. He is a simple man with simple tastes. The plot starts with a scene where Khosla dreams about his death. The irony is that nobody cares about his death; instead, his children & neighbours are more interested in their materialistic needs.
One early morning in Delhi, Khosla wakes up and plans to go to the site where he has purchased a plot to build his house. He is accompanied by his wife, eldest son Bunty (Ranveer Shorey), second son Cherry (Parvin Dabas), and his daughter. When they reach the spot, they find that someone else has occupied the site and on further investigation they find that a property usurping nexus headed by a man has captured it named Kishan Khurana (Boman Irani).
Khurana demands Rs. 15 lakhs to vacate the plot, which Khosla refuses to give. Bunty gathers few local strongmen and forcefully destroys the walls and re-occupies the plot. But Khurana has the police on his side and he gets Khosla arrested. After a day in the lock-up, Khosla is released. After Cherry meets Asif Iqbal who at one time was Khurana's partner. Khurana took away Asif's ancestral land by cheating him. So Asif and the Khoslas turn the tables on Khurana and dupe him of Rs. 35 lakhs (by fraud). In the end, Khosla gives the required 15 lakh to Khurana and takes possession of his plot.
The plot unfolds with them joining hands to pull off a scam on the biggest goon in the property business.
Khosla ka Ghosla received an enthusiastic response from critics many of whom considered the film to be the best of 2006. The film's plot, smart lines and crisp editing in particular received a lot of praise. The main cast especially Anupam Kher's and Boman Irani's performances received good reviews.
