First movie of Sanju and Govinda together
25 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

David Dhawan tried action and social films before starting full fledged comedy with AANKHEN(1993)which also got serious in between

This film is a typical commercial film mostly seen in 80s

We have long lost brothers, one becomes a thief and the other a cop and their father is killed.etc

There are some funny portions between Sanju and Govinda which get repetitive and the climax is unintentionally hilarious

Direction by DD is okay Music is okay

Sanju in 80's except NAAM, KABZAA was too raw in films and looked too skinny and here too he does his usual act Govinda is full of life how he was those days and now too Neelam and Anita Raaj are adequate Shakti Kapoor is as usual, Gulshan Grover too does his nonsense Tanuja is as usual, Paresh Rawal is hilarious
