Monica Gokhale (Dia Mirza) works for Bombay Heritage Society under Khandar Zala (Mahesh Manjrekar). Her plans of revamping the citys old buildings go against Maharaja Hari Holkar (Boman Irani). To stop Gokhale, Holkar has her kidnapped. However, she is rescued by Jolly Maker (Cyrus Broacha), an innocent and not so smart person. This not only brings fame to Maker, but also makes Holkar join hands with Zala to bomb the Secretariat building and recruit scientist Vishwas Atmavishwas Pinakin (Rajit Kapoor) for the same.
Realizing their plan, Gokhale reveals her true identity and joins hands with Maker to stop the crooks from destroying the city.The film received very negative reviews from critics. Most dismissed the film as slapstick. Taran Adarsh of IndiaFM rated the film as 1.5 stars out of 5, and said, Director Kunal Vijaykar tries hard to keep you entertained, but the writing is just not captivating.
Sure, you do laugh at a few jokes/situations, but there are times when the jokes aren't too funny and also tend to get repetitive. Anupama Chopra of NDTV gave the film 1.5 stars out of 5, and stated, Vijaykar and his actors are straining too hard to make you laugh at jokes that are simply too flimsy for film. It's exhausting more than entertaining. See it if you must.
Nikhat Kazmi of The Times Of India gave the film 1.5 stars out of 5, and said, Neither fruity nor nutty, this film ends up as a total squish. After an unfruitful watch, you feel completely let down. Kaveri Bamzai of India Today Group gave the film 1 star out of 5, and said, Unfortunately, the writers seem to have exhausted themselves thinking of the funny names and the interesting premise. There is nothing beyond it, except for two senseless item songs, one each for Irani and Mirza to stretch their legs.
Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN gave the film 1.5 stars out of 5, and stated, Despite juvenile jokes like peeing on open electric wires, Fruit & Nut is mercifully not the sort of vulgar comedy we've got used to seeing at the cinemas these days.
