The first real Govinda- David comedy
27 July 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lot of firsts. Although David Dhawan and Govinda had worked together before this was the first comedy the 2 made together which would be followed by all those hits. This was the first (and it happened only once more) that the competitors of those days Govinda and Chunky came together in a movie. Of course Govinda ate Chunky alive in his dual role. Finally this is one of the first times that a remake is actually better than the original which is a classic itself. AANKHEN is a remake of S. Raamanathan's DO PHOOL with Mahmood in Govinda's role and Vinod Mehra in Chunky's role. The heroine of the movie was Anjana Mumtaz, nowadays better known as the screenmother of Akshay Kumar. Kadar Khan in a dual role is also good as usual but (except for Govinda of course) the best in the movie is Sadashiv Amrapurkar in his FIRST comedy role. Raj Babbar is oke and Ritu Shivpuri (daughter of Om Shivpuri) is watchable. From the heroines Shilpa Shirodkar is the best. With the hitsongs LAL DUPATTE WALI AND ANGANA MEIN BABA
