Anil steals the show
24 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

David Dhawan's films are mostly nonsensical like MDK but more crude too but yet entertaining many times

He seems overawed by the Bigamy topic done in SAAJAN CHALE SASURAL(hit), GHARWALI BAHARWALI(flop)and Biwi No.1

BIWI NO.1 is another same concept film but it has some funny moments

One of the highlight is Anil's natural Punjabi act which he does so brilliantly, he makes you laugh the most

The plot is simple and done to death on the small screen too now

The funny scenes involve how Karisma's children and Salman's mom teach Sushmita a lesson also supported by Anil

The film has some nonsense scenes like Salman's crying scene in the end and the accident of Anil

Direction by DD is okay Music is good

Salman Khan plays the by then famous playboy act again but he is much more likable then today though he is cringeworthy in the climax Karisma Kapoor is good here and does a good job thankfully not irritating Sushmita is decent but looks her best Anil is a highlight as Punjabi Jatt, he makes you laugh with his natural performance( if u see closely NO ENTRY had a hangover of this film where again Salman played a playboy and Anil his friend and his wife is Pooja) Tabu is likable too as his wife Himani Shivpuri is a natural and fun to watch as Salman's mom
