Storyline

Two young Indians, Meena and Rajesh, meet in Europe and fall in love with each other, promising to get married when they return back to India. When they return home, Rajesh tells his dad about Meena, and they go to meet with Meena's dad. During this meeting, both fathers get into an argument, and refuse to permit the young couple to get married. No amount of persuasion gets them to change their minds. Then Rajesh, with Meena's help, decides to work as a servant in Meena's household - with a view of winning over her father, and thus finding a solution to their wedding problems. Will Rajesh succeed in fooling Meena's shrewd father? Written by Carrie

A Riot!
16 January 1999 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Ranks, with "Raja Babu," as the best Hindi film of the 1990s. Underscores Govinda's unmatched ability to play camp, over-the-top humour. Jim Carrey has nothing on this guy.
