Nice romantic comedy
24 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This movie is a great entertainer and has remained a classic for me

The film is like CHALTI KE NAAM GADI (1958) remade with KaderKhan- JackieShroff-MithunChakraboty with an Indian Herbie type of car and a trained monkey Divya Bharti and Juhi Chawla play the love interests of Jackie and Mithun The film also has a side story with the mystery behind Kader Khan's hatred for women which goes way back to the childhood of the three brothers

Direction and music are both nice with the "Dil Pe Tera Pyar Ka" remaining a classic The film also has several comedy sequences

The show belongs to Mithun with his humor for girls and his pranks His scenes shared with Shakti Kapoor are funny Kader Khan is elegant Jackie Shroff remains a gentleman with the ladies The girls are all good Shakti Kapoor is great Kiran Kumar rocks all the way
