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.

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.
