Storyline

Lalita (Madhuri Dixit) is married under duress from her maternal uncle, Madhi (Tej Sapru) to a cruel and possessive man, JB (Raj Babbar). He loves Lalita, but keeps her like a bird in a cage, hovering over and dominating her. Lalita runs away and enters the lives of Raj (Rishi Kapoor), his grandfather (Kader Khan), and Kaki (Dina Pathak). In order to hide her identity, she calls herself Shikha. Eventually, the family grow fond of Shikha, and Raj and she also fall in love. Raj's grandfather plans to marry Shikha off to Raj, when JB shows up and tells the family about the real identity of Shikha, and of her marital status, which Madhi quickly collaborates. The family is shocked to find out that Shikha has been lying to them. JB takes Lalita with him, and Lalita agrees to be his dutiful wife for ever. But will Raj forget his Shikha? And did Lalita really mean when she said she would be a dutiful wife to JB? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Bad movie with a bad direction
29 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a remake of the superhit Hollywood movie 'Sleeping with the Enemy' starring Julia Roberts.

This movie is badly made with almost no direction by the comedy king David Dhawan.

The name David Dhawan itself is a reason for you to deduce that you're going to watch a brainless, no substance rehash of SWTE.

The only thing worth watching in the movie was Madhuri Dixit. She looked awesome in all her dance numbers and carried the movie on her own. Watch this piece of crap only for Madhuri but don't expect anything else.

There are lots of happenings in the movie that did not make sense.

As for Rishi Kapoor, the less said the better. Raj Babbar is a complete miscast as the perverted and abusive lover. Kader Khan as the aging grandfather is okay. Shakti Kapoor and Tej Sapru are average.

Music is always a plus point in most of David Dhawan's movies. 'Mera Piya Ghar Aaya' is a song that will make you groove your hips. Other songs of the movie are okay too. Cinematography is not bad. Editing was so inconsistent that it leaves bumps in your throat.

Overall, a poor show!
