Side splitting comedy from Govinda... again
22 September 1999 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

The Govinda/David Dhawan combination just gets better with every movie..! This one is no exception, right from the lyrics of the opening song to Johnny Lever's hilarious impersonation of Daler Mehndi. Dhawan seems to have a knack of laughing at everything thats established about Hindi cinema... he does'nt even hesitate to poke fun at his own movie - with Sattar Bhai (Satish Shah), Raveena Tandon, and Govinda (Raju) pausing towards the middle of the movie and having a quick on screen introspection on where the movie is heading... ".. is plot mein twist kaise layen yaar..." asks Sattar before introducing a whole bunch of whacko villains and comics to continue the entertainment. For those who spend $8-10 on a puny 80 minute Hollywood production wondering at the end what to do with your half-full tub of popcorn, this movie should put an end to all your hopeless angst. This is actually 2 movies for the price of one - an all-you-can-eat orgy of fun that you will want to see again and again to catch all the subtle jokes. The only reason I did'nt give it a 10 was the rather poor ending - a standard filmi fight instead of more crazy antics or another song & dance sequence from Govinda.
