Storyline

Arjun (Govinda) lives a charmed life, surrounded by the family he loves and working at his family's thriving business. Then he meets Pooja (Manisha Koirala), and his life gets even better. The two quickly fall in love. But when a mysterious attempt to kill the happy couple alerts them to the presence of danger, their troubles are only beginning, and soon Arjun's brother (Rahul Roy) is killed in an accident no one could have foreseen. Pooja is mistakenly convicted of murder, and Arjun must save her while he keeps up his family responsibilities, but his father soon meets a cruel end as well. Now, on the run from both the police and the mysterious criminals, Arjun and Pooja work to expose the truth while evading a fate at the hands of either. Written by hEmRaJ (gavin_coolhgr@hotmail.com)

good movie by Govinda
7 August 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I read another comment that someone could not watch the movie after the first 50 minutes. You know that is the problem with people. You complain that an actor does the same roles over and over again (as in Govinda doing only his comedy roles) but when he does something else like this movie, Shikhar or Chhote Sarkar people criticize him. As far as being able to see whats coming next, don't you see that in all those YashRaj films and al those Shah Rukh Films?!?! Back to ACHANAK. It is a good movie, not a classic, but good. Actually a murder mystery. Rahul Roy gets murdered (of Aashiqui fame) and Govinda tries to get the murder. Manisha is his love interest, my favorite Rarah Naazz (sister of Tabu with whom Govinda made some hit films in the past) is his bhabhi and there are a host of villains as suspects. This is probably the only film so far in which you will be able to see Govinda and Shah Rukh Khan in the same movie, although not together in a ascene. Watch out for Sanjay Dutt as well and Jhonny lever in a triple role.
