A David Dhawan film is always a David Dhawan film - comic, silly, frivolous, and yet very entertaining. What you expect is what you get, no surprises here. I found some of his movies really awesome. Some of them were unbearable and some were decent. Yeh Hai Jalwa belongs to the latter category, it is a solid comic ride which unites two actors, Rishi Kapoor and Salman Khan. Khan plays his illegitimate son who was born before Kapoor married another woman who is not his mother. Now he travels from India to London to meet his father, but the latter refuses to accept him given his high reputation and family, which includes a beautiful wife and two children. But Salman won't leave it at that. Yeh Hai Jalwa is thoroughly fun to watch, and like most films directed by David Dhawan, it never takes itself too seriously. Salman Khan is very funny in his role. Rishi Kapoor too is excellent and I must note that I find him far better as a character actor than in his days as a leading hero. The supporting cast includes the pretty Amisha Patel, the hilarious Anupam Kher, the fantastic Kader Khan, and the ever beautiful Rati Agnihotri. All of them make this movie a worthy and enjoyable picture, which may not be Dhawan's best, but certainly deserves to be seen.
