Mostly Hilarious Caper!
23 June 2004 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

Pyar Kiye Jaa is essentially like Kishore Kumar. His madness, eccentricity is all captured very well! Adding to the mayhem, Shashi Kapoor, Mehmood and Om Prakash make this a very enjoyable movie.

The story synopsis: Shashi Kapoor gets a job in a firm owned by Om Prakash (Ramlal). For some inane reason, Shashi gets fired soon. His next Plan of Action - Protest! He camps outside Ramlal's bungalow..which makes way to introduce Ramlal's two daughters..Shashi likes one..over some hurled buckets of water!

Next POA! After some hate at first sight..wooing..etc..the couple in love need to have Shashi's parents come over to meet Ramlal..Kishore Kumar, Shashi's bum chum is summoned as a uncle/dad...Problem is Kishore likes Ramlal's other daughter..so the impersonation cannot be held long!

But the piece de resistance in this movie is Mehmood, the aspiring film director..In one situation, he is convincing dad Ramlal about a great murder mystery/plot..which is complete with his sound effects..door creaking..wind blowing...must be among the funniest scenes in Hindi cinema! There is also nubile Mumtaz, aspiring actress and her words of wisdom..ha ha..

Some decent music..and funny performances with fairly engaging plot make it an ideal Sunday watch! Laugh away!
