The screenplay is actually a mixture of two different plots taken from two different films with similar titles: the American classic Tom, Dick and Harry and the Hong Kong hit Tom, Dick and Hairy. It pays a small tribute to Bollywood as it contains multiple references to older films and has a number of unforgettable Bollywood characters from earlier movies. They live together as paying guests, and their life takes an endearing turn when a beautiful girl Celina comes to live in the bungalow opposite their house. They start making their moves to cast an impression on her, who is least interested in acknowledging their presence.

After high school, Dick Cheney was accepted to Yale University on a scholarship with the influence of an alumnus who was a Wyoming oilman. In the movie, his partying also leads him to punch someone and he is called a "dirtbag. After taking a year off, he tried to return to Yale but flunked out again. Cheney found work for a while helping to string power lines as a groundman. Unlike what's seen in the movie, he did not work up on the poles as a lineman.
