Great comedy movie
22 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I recently saw the DVD version of this movie. It has a commentary by Randhir Kapoor where he talks a bit about the making of the movie, how they designed the special car. overall a fantastic movie and each character plays his role to perfection. One of the best Bollywood slapstick comedies. The key characters are Randhir Kapoor trying to find a bride, Poonam Dhillon who plays the daughter of a retired army general (Sanjeev Kumar) and Rajendranath who plays a total buffoon to perfection. Sanjeev Kumar also plays a double role that of a conman. For those who have not watched it go out there and watch and is much better than the current movies (most of which are copied from Hollywood movies).
