Govinda Magic!
5 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Govinda. One of the most prolific, talented & stylish actors of his time. Give this actor any role, and he'll still pull it off with ease. Having seen most of this iconic actors films, I can very confidently say, that, Govinda is boon to Cinema.

'Deewana Mastana' is a romantic-comedy about two guys who fall in love with the same girl. Thus, follows a series of comedic moments, that lead to a long-drawn culmination.

As a film, 'Deewana Mastana', at best, can pass off as a time-pass entertainer. To be really honest, it's mainly Govinda's fantastic performance that works the most & he is without a doubt, the biggest strength of the film. Sure, there are moments that truly bring the house down, but, in the second-hour, the film drags itself a bit too much & loses pace.

The Writing Material is entertaining in the first-hour, but slips quite a bit in the second-hour. David Dhawan's Direction is good. Cinematography & Editing are passable. Songs are hummable.

Performance-Wise: Govinda, Govinda, Govinda. He delivers a fantastic performance, and owns the film. Anil Kapoor is alright. Juhi Chawla does well. Anupam Kher is top-notch. Johnny Lever is genuinely funny. Shakti Kapoor is fair, while Satish Kaushik leaves a mark. Salman makes a cameo in the climax.

On the whole, Watch it for Govinda.
