This film is a gem and I have encouraged friends to watch this movie. It is not the writing that produces laughs-- in that area, it is rather lackluster. However, the overacting, the overall craziness of the film had me in tears. In addition, it is impossible to not laugh during the first scene. Most films have been scored using multiple songs. This film uses the same song throughout the movie and it couldn't be funnier. Govinda and Dutt are horrible dancers and they make this painfully obvious throughout the film. Additionally, if you watch it subtitled in English, you may find some scenes particularly hilarious on another level. The dialog was spoken in English, yet the subtitles are grammatically different. Ek Aur Ek Gyarah has a special place in my cabinet of films. I am rather surprised that this film has not attained cult status.
