Winning Performances Make This Comedy Memorable!
21 July 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Harmesh Malhotra's 'Dulhe Raja' is interesting & funny in bits and pieces, but it's the Winning Performances That Make This Comedy Memorable! The film has some good jokes, that sound even better, thanks to it's talented cast, of whom all, are blessed with impeccable comic timing.

'Dulhe Raja' is about Raja, a poor man, played superbly by Govinda, who opens a fast food restaurant right opposite a five star hotel run by its owner Singhania, played hilariously by Kader Khan, and thus begins to earn his wrath. The wealthy hotel owner then uses all his influence to remove Raja, but in vain. Things get worse for the wealthy man, when his daughter Kiran, played by Raveena Tandon, decides to marry the poor hotelier.

The Chemistry Between Screen-Rivals Govinda & Kader Khan, is simply flawless. In fact, their portions are truly funny and leave a lasting impression. 'Dulhe Raja' has an interesting first hour, that truly entertains, but, the film loses pace in the second hour, thanks to the weak writing material, that even tends to drag. However, the culmination, though very silly, comes up well. Harmesh Malhotra's Direction is passable. The Soundtrack is nice, while the dialogue are hilarious at times.

Performance-Wise: 'Dulhe Raja' works mainly because of it's winning performances. Govinda & Kader Khan, as mentioned, share a flawless chemistry on screen. The Supremely Talented Actors deliver performances, that truly rank amongst their finest works. Johny Lever is another topper. He manages to deliver a lot of laughs in the goings-on. Raveena Tandon is adequate. Asrani does well. Prem Chopra & Mohnish Behl play the bad guys, fairly.

On the whole, 'Dulhe Raja' isn't as funny as expected, but yet it deserves a watch for the winning performances it has in store.
