A forgettable film
30 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie is more or less a rough remake of the 1982 Rakesh Roshan film "Kaamchor". Both films share the same basic plot except that the makers of Rajaji tried to incorporate more humor into their movie, albeit unsuccessfully.

Despite the presence of great comedic talent like Govinda, Kadar Khan, Satish Kaushik and Shakti Kapoor, the film lacks good humor. The jokes are stale, the story is predictable and the songs are dull.

All in all, this is one of Govinda's forgettable comedies. I'd recommend "Raja Babu", "Dulhe Raja" or "Saajan Chale Sasural" instead of this movie.
