This Remake sucks!
6 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Contains SPOILERS!!

Poor remake of "It could happen to you", watch the original instead of wasting your time with this movie. Why is Suneil Shetty in movies anyway ? Is he a financier ? Probably. Suneil Shetty plays an honest cop. What crap! He gives money out of his own pocket to a cabbie whose taxi has an accident. His wife cares too much about money. They win the lottery and end up sharing the winnings with a waitress whom the goody two-shoes cop had promised half the winnings as a tip. The wife is goaded by Paresh Rawal into divorce and usurping the entire winnings for herself. Cop and waitress fall in love, and the city comes to their rescue.
