Excellent....
16 August 2006 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I have never seen a movie with more comedy then this one.... In the movie many stories are progressing in parallel and all of them are beautifully inter-linked. You have to give the story writer the due credit for keeping all stories inter linked. I cant find even a single bad point in this movie. Even the songs are very good specially the video of "Chain aapko Mila".... Never ever I like to see a video of a song more then once but I must have seen it hundreds of times and still I find it hilarious.... The best part of the movie is of course Paresh rawal with his acting. I think all the characters have done justice to their role.
