Storyline

Mrs. Malhotra (Reema Lagoo) is the mother of twins, who were separated at birth, and she only has one son. Since then she has been in shock and confined in a wheelchair in the USA. Quiet and mature Prem, (Salman Khan) one of the twins, and his dad (Dalip Tahil) return to India together with Mrs. Malhotra to get Prem married to outgoing and percocious Mala (Karishma Kapoor), who is the daughter of Mr. Sharma (Kader Khan). There Prem meets with his twin brother very outgoing and percocious Raja (also Salman Khan), who looks like him, but is exactly the opposite in nature, A series of comic scenes result as a result of the twins getting together. Raja loves quiet and mature Roopa (Rambha), and both the girls are confused by the change they perceive in their respective lovers. To muddy the waters Tiger Ratanlal (Mukesh Rishi) has sworn vengeance against the Malhotra family for what they did to his dad (Deepak Shirke). Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Salman&Karisma
29 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The love these two together! They are the perfect on-screen couple. Karisma is so cute. Salman is really funny in both roles. The songs are fun. I still remember the songs, they fit in perfectly with the entire movie. Another perfect example why the 90s were the best time for movies. Case in point: Karisma and Salman both could possible act together in for years and years to come. I would to see the longevity of these two, they work really well together. Karisma should come back to the screen in 2-4 yrs. I am glad that she had the maturity to get married at the age she did, smart move. Karisma's acting is very much based on the love of the craft...I remember the Karisma poster I had when Prem Quadi came out. I think she was the first newcomer who worked with a no name and did not use industry connections. Some of the newer girls look older...Which goes to show you that age is just a number. Karisma could easily play a 16yr old again. Karisma has single-handedly revolutionized Indian Cinema. Now I know why all my friends and I liked her back then...when Indian cinema was not Bollywood. I cannot believe the terms: Lollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood and the like. I do not see British, Spanish, Italian, Finnish filmmakers comparing the too. There is no comparison. Art is art the canvas and paint quality is up to the artist. Interpretation and perception is left to us...
