Good Entertainer, 22 December 2002
Author: deinny152 from Norway

I watched this movie when I was a teenager. Later I have watched it again a couple of times and its as entertaining as it was on the first time.

Anupam Kher is a talented actor, he fits well into a spectrum of roles. But I like him most as a comedian. In this movie he plays the father of the girl (Pooja Bhatt) and he plays it well :)

Some very nice songs too. Certainly worth watching.
