Storyline

Mrs. Malhotra's (Reema Lagoo) twin sons were separated at birth, so now she only has one son beside her. Since then she has been in shock and confined to a wheelchair in the USA. Quiet and mature Prem (Salman Khan), one of the twins, returns to India with his father Mr. Malhotra (Dalip Tahil) and mother Mrs. Malhotra to marry outgoing and precocious Mala (Karishma Kapoor), who is the daughter of Mr. Sharma (Kader Khan). There Prem meets his identical twin brother Raja (also Salman Khan) who is a thief and also exactly the opposite in nature to Prem. 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 father (Deepak Shirke). Written by Soumitra

Judwaa- Salman's Second Coming

Judwaa directed by Salman Khan was released on Feb 13, 1997. I was there in India at that time. The film went on to do well at the box-office reportedly bringing in 2.1 crores rupees per territory. In many ways Judwaa gave Salman a second shot at super stardom. Before Judwaa there was Hum Aapke Hain Koun but that did more for Madhuri Dixit then Salman Khan. Before Judwaa Salman had done a number of films that failed miserably at the box office and cast a shadow over his career but Judwaa changed all that.

Judwaa is Salman Khan's first film in which he has done two roles. He is also the first among his contemporaries Amir and Shah Rukh. The plot is quiet simple. Two twin borthers separated at birth reunite after a chain of hillarious events. Both the twins can "feel" one another.



Salman has shown considerable flair for comedy in this film. The credit must also go to the director David Dhawan. Incidently Mr. Dhawan has been after Salman to do a film for him. The two later collaborated on another super hit Biwi No1.

The music for Judwaa is by Anu Malik. The style and the numbers definitely suit Salman's personality. The two heroines are simply gorgeous to look at but Rambha could use a few acting lessons.

Judwaa is fun film to watch though the plot is very similiar to a Jackie Chan movie Twin Brothers and loosely adopted from the telgu hit Hello Brother starring Nagarjuna. This movie will be most enjoyable to Salman Khan Fan.
