Storyline

Poor Raja opens a fast foot restaurant right opposite a five star hotel run by it's owner Singhania, earning his wrath. The wealthy hotel owner uses all his influence to remove Raja, but in vain. Things get worse for the wealthy man, when his daughter Kiran wants to marry the poor hotelier. The wealthy man refuses, leading to a confrontation and a condition - which Raja fulfills, he becomes rich virtually overnight, and proposes for the hand of Kiran. The wealthy hotelier reluctantly accepts him as his son-in-law, only to have Kiran elope with a man named Rahul. Written by Carrie

One of Govinda's good comedies
21 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Govina's films are mostly crude, loud but this is one of his entertaining films like COOLIE No.1

The story is old but yet the film is well handled and keeps you involved throughout with good jokes and less loud scenes

The scenes between Kader and Govidna are a true laugh riot and also between Johny Lever who isn't loud here and acts very well Even the romance track is well handled

The film does have some slapstick scenes which are too much but yet they make you laugh mostly

Harmesh Malhotra gives his last best work, His handling of comedy is tremendous here Music is good

Govinda walks away with laurels, of course he has done such roles before but here his act is in full control and he keeps you engaged and laughing throughout which he failed to do in some comedies Raveena is okay in her routine role Kader Khan excels in his role as usual, His scenes with Govinda are the best Johny Lever isn't loud and actually makes you laugh throughout Prem Chopra overacts, Mohinish Behl is routine Rana Jung Bahadur is nothing great Asrani is funny at places
