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

The unstoppable Raja
9 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Govinda plays Raja, a smart aleck who has a street-side eatery - but it is a huge problem for Kader Khan as the street is a road inside his huge hotel! The eatery is popular with the hotel guests and an eyesore for the hotel owner. Many attempts are made to oust Raja and his eatery but Raja always triumphs and seems unstoppable. Kader Khan has a beautiful daughter Raveena Tandon who has fallen for the scumbag Mohnish Behl and wants to trick her Dad into letting her marry him. Many twists and turns ensue, and lots of slapstick moments later the Dulha (bridegroom) does get his Dulhan (bride)! The funny moments are somehow less funny than the usual Govinda film. The outstanding sequence is a music and dance showdown between Kader Khan and Govinda - who knew the old man could shake and gyrate with the best of them!

This is a fun one time watch - but do not go expecting too much, it is brainless entertainment.
