Brainless and fun
12 October 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is a typical David Dhawan fare. Be sure to turn off your brains while watching the movie. After that well the movie is pretty enjoyable and the gags are rather effective. Chunkey and Govinda are in a double role; as a result comedy of errors follows and hence laughter ensues. The supporting cast also fits in to the fullest. Kader Khan is at his best. The villains are pretty much dirtiest type a comedy can have and are rather menacing. Overall its a fun filled 3 hours ride, I would recommend it to anyone who can digest and enjoy Govinda-David Dhawan brand of humour. And yes look out for the monkey who's the third most important member of the cast.
