Govinda's early days
15 October 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of Govinda's earlier films and also co starring Dharmendra with whom he gave 2 more films ZULM KI HUKUMAt and PAAP JO JALAKE RAAKH KAR DOONGA

The film is the usual masala

Padmini is the niece of Amrish and Shashikala who treat her badly and then she is thrown out for spoiling Shashikala's wig and burning suit of Puri Now which idiot will wash the wig with surf? hahahahha that is our foolish heroine

The film has some funny scenes by Govinda who though has come a long way now and that time was yet to master his act but yet it's fun watching him He was thin, chubby unlike in the 90's

Direction by Deepak Shivdasani is okay Music is okay

Amongst actors Dharmendra continues his drunk type talking act which he repeated many times, He was also in his early 50's already by this film and yet played the young mann Govinda as i said is a pleasure to watch Padmini is good Amrish and Shashikala have done such roles many times
