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)

A movie where Madhuri tries to be Julia Roberts
24 July 2007 | by (a usa) – See all my reviews

Its basically a remake of sleeping with enemy. Julia Roberts in this movie is Madhuri Dixit and the movie is bit shaped in to comedy here. Sleeping with an enemy is offcourse a novel turned in to a film where Julia Roberts is amazing but i must say madhuri has watched the film because few shots are just the same Mads disguises in to a guy to see her aunt and Julia disguises as well the water fountain shot is just exactly the same

This movie is basically a remake but here Madhuri is wed with Raj Babbar without her will and runs away that nuptial night and as Raj behind her she tries to disguise herself in to a fancy doll that Rishi kapoor gets attracted of and then because he is still a bachelor and his grandpa wants him to marry so Madhuri becomes the fake wife and acts and there is lots of silly comedy involved and Madhuri is brilliant in her dancing.

Mera piya Gar aaya o ram ji song is in this movie and music goes along as well. People have done their jobs but i think it was a flop film but if you have nothing else to watch you can watch this film with family or by own self. Its a time pass bollywood flick mas-ala mix.
