ExMovies: What happens when you want a bachelorette but have no girlfriends? The boys step in as the bride squad! The 3 boys and a girl, childhood best friends, pack their bags and take off on an impromptu holiday to Mauritius to celebrate their best friend’s bachelorette. But does it all end well? Watch The Holiday see the adventure unfold!

Episode 1: 3 Guys And A Girl

Mehak’s getting married! Her fiancé Siddharth is all set for his bachelor’s. And what about Mehak’s bachelorette? Mehak doesn’t have many female friends, but she has her guy (best) friends – Patrick, Kabir, and Armaan all set to be her bride squad!

The motley crew arrives in gorgeous Mauritius – Patrick’s choice – a strange one since Mauritius isn’t the go-to destination for bachelorettes. It’s much more common for honeymoons. But Patrick makes up by making special arrangements for them in a luxury hotel’s presidential suite.

The gang catches up. This holiday is overdue for them. The plan for the holiday is that each one of them will get to plan one day where the rest of the group does everything that one person wants to do. That way they won’t have fought and each person will get to do what they want to do!

But underneath all the fun, lie glimpses of cracks in the character’s lives. Armaan’s slightly strained relationship with the group. Issues at Kabir’s workplace where he got skipped over for a promotion. Patrick too seems to have a hidden agenda behind choosing Mauritius as their holiday destination.

But these cracks can be addressed later. Now, it’s time to party. The gangs make their way to a hip bar, where they’re promptly denied entry. 3 guys and a girl aren’t getting entry in a nightclub. No stags allowed. Is there a holiday off to a bad note already?

Episode 2: In Da Club

What do you do when you’re with your best friends in one of the most clubs in town? Play truth and dare! The gang does some outlandish dares, but Kabir’s dare seems to be the most daring. His dare leads to his introduction to Sara, a woman he has instant chemistry with. Despite all the goofiness of the dare, they end up connecting over their shared love for Tarantino films.

Armaan and Mehak share a quiet moment together and recollect the good old college days. When Armaan and Mehak could have gone to prom together but ended up going with other people. How some of their friends, even to this day, assume that Mehak and Armaan were/ are a thing.

In the midst of the party, they get a call from Patrick’s mom! She’s blocked his credit card. The room he thought was for 10,000 rupees was actually for a lac. The gang has to check out in the morning. Where will they go?

Episode 3: Ghast From the Past

It’s Armaan’s day. The group travels all over the country and in the end, wind up at a dingy, a rather spooky hotel.

Things go further south when the hotel staff regales them with the haunted mysteries of the hotel. The group decides to sleep together in one room, but Armaan’s really not feeling this hotel. he insists the group wakes up. The gang sings a song to cheer him up, but when they hear a third voice singing back to them, they freak out! This hotel is definitely haunted! They race out of there. With nowhere to go, Kabir calls the only person they know in Mauritius – Sara. The gang ends up spending the night at Sara’s house, furthering Sara and Kabir’s instant chemistry.

Kabir tells Patrick about his conversation with Sara in the club the other day and how their conversation was electric with strong chemistry.

It’s time for Patrick’s day! And for the group, he has planned – Yoga!

Episode 4: Beach, Please

The group puts all their belongings – wallets, phones in Mehak’s bag.

While Patrick flirts with every girl there, Armaan finally confesses to Kabir about his break up with his long-time girlfriend. Mehak meanwhile, is stuck with a rather old stripper that Patrick has got for her!

Episode 5: Bachna Ae Casino

It’s time to go all in. Kabir teaches the group the ins and outs of Blackjack using his talent for counting cards. The group must be discrete though. If they’re caught, it’s game over.

The group makes their way to the casino and ends up winning a huge amount and making a lucky escape from being caught. But as they’re leaving, Kabir ends up spotting a chance to be able to significantly increase their earnings. Given the timing and the situation, according to him, the probabilities are insane.

Just as Mehak is telling the boys just how much they mean to her, she spots the stripper who ran away with all her stuff! The chase is on!

Meanwhile, Patrick, Armaan, and Mehak who ended up sleeping in decide to take the boat to the waterboard.

While Patrick waits for Armaan and Mehak, he makes himself comfortable in a spare wheelchair in the hotel reception. He’s met by a beautiful woman, his helper of the day, (a part-time hotel employee who helps disabled customers of the hotel, play sports, and not miss out on adventures) who has clearly mistaken him for someone else, but Patrick is in a ho hurry to clear the misconception. He decides to spend the day with Mia – his helper, clearly duping her leaving Armaan and Mehak to do their own thing.

The two of them head to the water board but as they check out the place, they see that their boat has slowly drifted away! The 2 of them can’t swim and have no phone network. All they can do is just wait at the waterboard until they are rescued. They’re stranded!

They have a heart to heart and Armaan tells Mehak that friends have the best relationships! Mehak agrees! As they wait for the boat, the two of them end up having a moment.

Patrick and Mia meanwhile, ending playing a game of tennis, which of course Patrick is not very good at. He’s not good at losing either and ends up standing up from the wheelchair to win, betraying his act as a disabled person! Mia is aghast about being lied to – that too like this!

Armaan and Mehak are finally rescued from the water board. They’re drunk and as they find their way to their rooms, Mehak and Armaan end up kissing. What happens now?
