Storyline

First of all let us all be clear that this movie has nothing to do with the personal life of Bihar's controversial politician Lalit Prasad Yadav, though he does appear in the beginning and the end of this story. This story centers around a woman named Padmashree Divakar Kashyap who along with her boyfriend, Lalchand Dilachand alias Laloo, is in search for some family diamonds that were reportedly stolen by a Mr. Saxena. While Laloo haphazardly questions a terrified Saxena with his cigarette-lighter pistol, Saxena dies of fright. This leaves the duo no choice save to find out where the diamonds are on their very own, and this takes them to South Africa where they meet the third person of this title, namely Advocate Prasad Pritam Pradyuma, who is the legal counsel for gangster Johny, who is being held by the police as a suspect in a bank robbery. Then we get to meet the fourth person named Yadav, who is Johny's assistant, and when we put all four together we get the full title. Watch ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

What can I say? Here comes another dullard movie with nothing great to offer. The jokes aren't extremely great, the plot is incredibly predictable, the story is old, and the actors are mediocre. This is your typical Bollywood-style, "masala-filled" movie, which I admit is good to relax to after a long week. If you leave your brain at home for this film, you might just be able to tolerate it. You've got the glamorous girls, the high crimes, and of course, you can't forget about Johnny Lever's comedy, as trite as it may be. Nonetheless, it gets boring very quickly. At the end of it all, you come out telling yourself, "I can't believe I subjected myself to such stupidity." To keep consistent with the quality of cinema you're watching, the songs are also pretty lame.
