Govinda makes a good liar
3 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This movie made by David Dhawan and starring Govinda together was excellent

This movie is inspired by LIAR LIAR (1997)

Govinda's best scenes in the first half are the way he tries to attract Sushmita and Anupam Kher which is good

In the second half it is much like LIAR LIAR where Govinda makes a promise, breaks it and lies about the reasons

The songs are quite hummable

Govinda's fast talking, cheerful humour and slapstick comedy is what makes the film watch able Sushmita Sen sounds annoying when she cries Rambha is nothing great but okay Anupam Kher hams Satish Khaushik is likable Ashish Vidyarthi is very good Kiran Kumar reminds me of Premnath in his role Sharad Kapoor and Shahbaz Khan are alright
