A Good Comedy Movie
14 June 1999 | by (Bombay, India) – See all my reviews

Ramgopal Varma comes up with a different kind of comedy. Everyone is after a briefcase which contains something valuable. Its a fun on the run kind of movie. Sanjay Dutt and Urmila Matondkar give an excellent performance. The best performance comes from Paresh Rawal. This is Paresh's Best performance after Andaz Apna Apna and Sir. The Cinematography and Sound Recording are excellent. The dialogues are very good. The climax is a let down. This is one movie that could have done well without songs.
