Fantastic Fun Treat, 8 January 2007
Author: nolanfincher from India

Got to see this movie while I was surfing through the television channels. I'm not from 80s. I don't know the actors either (except Faruk & Saeed). Yet, in not more than a five Min's, I got glued to the movie. Such is the fun, the movie got.

Immediately after the movie, I ran to my system to check the actors' names. Faruk and Deepti Naval make a great pair. Awesome acting by Rakesh Bedi, Saeed & Ravi Baswani. They remind you your days of youth. (I loved the episodes involving their bike & cigarettes).

Music by Raj Kamal is excellent. Pyar Lagawat (sung by Haimanti Sukla, Shailendra Singh) and Kahan Se Aaye Badra (Haimanti Sukla, K. J. Yesudas, Shailendra Singh) are just great.

Completely shot in Delhi, this flick is all about love, friendship and fun.

Haven't seen it? Go get it, Just don't miss it.

I GIVE 10/10 for it's plentiful comedy, error free screenplay and nice acting.
