Storyline

Police Inspector Dayashanker Pandey is a slacker, a man who does not want to put his life under any risk, and is quite comfortable sharing tall tales, and a desk job. Fate has other plans for him, for whenever he goes on duty outside, he somehow apprehends some criminals or some smuggled goods or drugs. He thus becomes the pride of his division, much to his discomfort. For Dayashanker knows that if he is publicly felicitated, this will put in the black books of many underworld gangsters, which will rip his comfortable and easy-going life apart.

Remake of SHORT TIME but good
27 July 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Govinda has done several serious roles even when he did comedy post AANKHEN this is one of those films where he gets to prove himself as an actor

he film is a remake of SHORT TIME the initial scenes are ordinary but the scenes when Govinda coems to know about his sickness to the entire track of he trying to die on duty till Aditya revealing the truth are brilliantly handled

The problem with the film is that the film rests on clichés and crude scenes like the Govinda- Shilpa scenes initially and the dances which were added for Govinda's mass appeal

Also the villainy track especially Gulshan Grover track is badly handled The film ends too as a typical potboiler

Direction by Dayal Nihalini is good in parts but bad in parts Music is good, especially the title song

Amongst actors Govinda is as usual in comic scenes but excels in serious scenes, especially when he comes to know he has tumour and the entire scenes later and also his outburst with Aditya proves he can deliver much more Aditya too is very good in his part Shilpa Shetty is typical and irritates at times Raj Babbar is nothing great Gulshan Grover overacts, Mohan Joshi is unbearably loud the rest are adequate
