Super Comedy Film!
26 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Govinda is an excellent comedian and no-one can be better than him. He did really well in this film and Raja Babu as well, I'm surprised that he can do comedy. I was thinking that why he didn't do comedy film in 1980's until 1990's but thanks to David Dhawan who directed both of films. David makes us laugh and enjoy to watch them.

It was a huge hit at that time, they're classic and much more funny than nowaday.

Before the film released, I remember I viewed a very short song trailer on VHS, 'Main To Raste Se Jaa Raha Tha'. It was very rare trailer and difficult to find which VHS that it contains. Someone who is out there might still got them.
