This plot seems really outdated and frivolous and for those who want to see the other side of Rajeev Khandelwal. He takes up an entirely comical role aided by his partner Shreyas Talpade, the third is a slightly sane and level-headed looking bachelor Muzammil Ibrahim.
The story begins in 1980s when the boys pass out of college and they have fabulous goals in life that will take them in a shortcut to success. Rajveer (Rajeev Khandelwal) with a bunch of friends sign an agreement that all of them will buy Reliance shares and the entire lot will go to the ones who will remain a bachelor till the end. Rajveer now puts all the money on Satyam Infotech and they crash. The saga of a loser just begins.
This point of the story is conveniently put on the back burner and the director moves to romance. Nikhil (Muzammil) is marrying his childhood friend Anjali (Tripta Parashar), the rest suddenly develop a crush on Anjali's friend Sneha (Mugdha Godse).
A gay party in between this commotion looks very juvenile and clichéd. As the two Rajveer and Aarav (Shreyas) woo Sneha, one really doesn't know who seriously is in love with her. Meanwhile Rajveer loses money and compels Aarav to propose to Sneha as this is the only way he can get his shares to repay a Gutka King who is after his life.
None of the characters have a proper purpose in life and this is the major flaw. Their roles are so silly that you would not want to empathise with any of them. Rajveer's character is tad too boring as the director is clearly biased and he tends to spend more time on his sob story.
Muzammil could have emoted better, he looks like a piece of chalk, the girls are absolute bimbos, in some scenes a few actors look clueless, it is an entirely the director's [Aditya Datt] fault.
The most tiring episode is that of the betting on cricket matches..the reactions are immatured, however Shreyas has his moment in a rest room. His silent act is praiseworthy. The superman song is just about okay and Rajveer in a sweater and hairdo of a yesteryears super star looks funny. The climax is the most boring out of the lot.
Avoid Will You Marry Me? unless you want to see a hero running around in a bra, a couple of them making cartoons of themselves throwing and flinging food at a dining table, Paresh Rawal attempting to say something intelligent but falls absolutely flat, the film's title is not justified at all.
