Storyline

Two petty thieves Tara and Sitara (Govinda & Sanjay Dutt respectively) get on the bad side of two wanted criminals, namely Panther and Cobra (Gulshan Grover and Ashish Vidyarthi respectively), and must run for their lives. They end up at the residence of Major Ram Singh (Jackie Shroff), who is also on the lookout for Panther and Cobra. Ram Singh mistakes them for good people and shelters them. Then Panther and Cobra kidnap Sitara and Tara's mom (Himani Shivpuri), and both must obey Panther and Cobra's instructions, including betraying Ram Singh's hospitality, and kidnapping his son.

A Big Avoid!!
19 September 2006 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Flashback: David Dhawan was the happening thing in Bollywood. "Govinda + David Dhawan" was the enviable combo that even the Big B stooped down to be a part of it and tried his hand with D. Dhawan on the director's seat.

Present: When the best of the Bollywood movies are biting the dust, the director cans the film with a misnomer that the audience will bite any bones thrown.

The truth: audience bites back!!

I cannot decide which was worse, the story or the execution. A few scenes were inspired from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Abundance use of punjabi language in the movie only add to the woes. The heroines are displayed in their lowest necklines utilised only for free skin-show. Heroines acting department: big ZERO.

Advice:: David Dhawan: If you don't re-invent yourself, you might as well start looking for the nearest Jurassic Park.

Govinda: Off-late your comedy is "utter" rubbish. And you better do something about your "paunch" Uncle!!

Sanju Baba: Forget doing favours to your buddies. Do yourself a favour and choose good scripts.

Subash Ghai: As a Chairman and Managing Director of Mukta Arts public limited company the investors expect you to be professional. Obviously, you are not keeping a tab on the production notes!!!

Verdict: Disappointment was not the nearest word on my mind - suicide, perhaps.
