Movie belongs to Salman
5 July 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Judwaa is a plant surprise.Direction is not bad.Script is good.Story is good.It opens when a lady gives birth to twins.When they are born the nurse says that one has a bandage.Soon they get separated.One is with them.The other is in a railway track and has no one.The twist in the tale is whenever one of the child does something like fighting,kissing or eating the other twin does the same. .Cinematography is pleasant.Songs are loud and forgettable.Chereography is terrible.Background score was irritating.Anupham Kher and Satish Shah were very much annoying and could have been deleted.Karishma delivers a dreadful performance as Mala.Kader was annoying.The lady which played Rajas sister was barley wasted.The man which played Tiger was very irritating.Rambha was okay but acted better than Karishma.The movie belongs to Salman who gives a great perfromance wven though he is in his regular overacting self he has done well.The movie is a watch but just forward the songs
