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)

This is a comedy?
22 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

If JDMGRH was crap, Mahesh again returns with a comedy PADMASHREE LALOO PRASAD YADAV No this isn't a take off on him or a spoof on him It's the names of the main characters in the film

Mahesh gave us some of the best films in drama like VAASTAV, ASTITVA even VIRUDDH was decent but his comedies are the worst ever

This film proves yet again that he shouldn't touch comedies either as an actor or director

The film is a remake of A FISH CALLED WANDA

A decent plot for a comedy but badly handled The comedy is cringeworthy

In short The film is a badly made comedy The film has Suneil passing gay gestures to Johny Lever it was funny in AWARA PAAGAL DEEWANA(again having Johny at the receiving end) here it is terrible It has Masumeh who for diamonds tries to attract Mahesh Manjerekar Enough said

It also has Laloo Prasad Yadav making an appearance in the end and perhaps the last scene wasn't complete or Suneil wasn't present for the shoot or perhaps he was bored of the film Because it clearly shows someone else facing his back towards us trying to pass off as Suneil covering his face

Direction by Mahesh is terrible Music is bad

Suneil Shetty looks cool and is okay in his part Masumeh hams it up Johny Lever annoys, Mahesh Manjerekar after JAWANI DIWANI proves yet again he is an annoying comedian Sharat Saxena is bad
