At Bombay airport, Raja sets eyes on Dr Neha and promptly falls in love with the psychiatrist, for that's what she is. Raja and Ghafoor quickly find out where she lives. Ghafoor pretends to be a psychiatric patient while Raja takes on the name Raj Kumar and befriends her, telling her he has just returned from the US.

User Reviews

David Dhawan at his very best!
17 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

David Dhawan has made many many enjoyable comedies in the 90's, but this movie along with Aankhen are his very best! There is nothing novel to the story about 2 guys in love with the same girl(Juhi Chawla in this case) and how they try to outdo each other. What makes the movie so enjoyable is the treatment and the terrific sense of comedy by both Govinda and Anil Kapoor. Johny Lever is also very good and he gets a lot of scope to perform and does well! Some of the most hilarious moments in the movie are when Satish Kaushik comes in as "Pappu Pager" and boy, that is what people talk about after coming out of the cinema hall! His dialogues had become quite a rage amongst the youth back when the movie release in 1997.

Govinda shows what he can do when it comes to comedy and his "baby steps, baby steps" is just superb! Anil Kapoor matches Govinda step to step in this David Dhawan comedy, which not many other actors could do it easily in a David Dhawan flick. Juhi Chawla is good at comedy as always and looks great!

I wonder how many times I have seen this movie.
