Crap
22 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

VAASTAV(1999) a film people remember even today, It was Mahesh Manjerekar's debut as a director and Sanju's turning point after his jail return and it's also one of the best performances by him and one of his best films

After VAASTAV Mahesh gave another outstanding women oriented film ASTITVA(2000) which too worked well and Tabu gave an outstanding performance

The same year Mahesh gave a decent though recycled film KURUKSHETRA which also had Sanjay Dutt again who gave an excellent job and then his supposedly debut NIDAAN released which too was a good film

Surprisingly in the same year JDMGRH released which was trash

Mahesh tried to make a comedy and faltered badly After this film barring a few here and there Mahesh slowly lost his touch

The film is terrible, in fact one of the worst comedies by Govinda

The comedy is bad, there are jokes made on people being cockeyed, A person repeating his master's last line every time and lot more even the main plot is a joke, Govinda due to some disease has to stay away from his family and grow up in a village

The film tries too hard to be funny but falls flat Most of the jokes are bad and even the romance, drama is bad The finale sees a murder mystery involving Milind Gunaji and Rakhi Sawant which leads to a change of heart in his Bhabhi who hated Govinda till then

Direction by Mahesh Manjerekar is terrible, he shouldn't direct comedies Music is okay

Govinda does very well in dramatic scenes, Mahesh again proves he can direct actors very well in drama but in comedy? Govinda does his best but sadly due to the badly handled scenes his comic act seems repetitive Rinki Khanna is awful Sonali is decent Amongst rest Shivaji Satham and Reema after VAASTAV again play parents of the hero and are good in their parts especially Reema who mostly gives her best in Mahesh's films Amongst rest Kunika and Milind Gunaji are theatrical Shakti Kapoor annoys in comedy but is decent in serious scenes Rakhi Sawant is horrible amongst rest the guy playing Sanata(from VAASTAV) is okay
