Storyline

Based in Cape Town, specializing in divorces, Jeet Oberoi warns his friends, Karan Malhotra and Bhavesh Patel, about the many disadvantages of being involved in a married relationship. He indicates that marriages result in divorce, if it is a love marriage than the groom digs his grave; and if is an arranged marriage, it is the groom's family that dig his grave. Scoffing at this, Karan gets married with his sweetheart, Sanjana Jugran, much to the chagrin of her dad; while conservative Bhavesh travels to Vishwamitri, Gujarat, along with his entire family, and gets married to a liberal Prachi Jadeja. Incompatibility issues will soon surface, compelling the duo to retain Jeet as legal counsel to expedite their respective divorce proceedings. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Do you wanna Partner, Life Partner....?
27 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

The basic premise is regardless of love-marriage or arranged marriage, divorce is the final destination for sure as much as death or taxes. Govinda keeps popping-in and out at regular intervals on the screen to prove his point, add fuel to the fire in the lives of couples and keep his chimney burning.

The casting is perfect. Govinda reprises Partner Salman Khan. Fardeen & Genelia are well suited for the modern couple while Tushar & Prachi for the traditional. Anupam Kher was wasted. Vikram Gokhale had an extended special appearance. Darshan Jariwala gets in the skin of the character as orthodox patriarch.

The songs are just about okay, Pritam should stop using too using too much of English language in a Hindi film.

In his second outing Rumi Jaffery attempts a David Dhawan/ Priyadarshan. Having established himself with the credentials of a writer, Rumi seems to have a bit lost when it comes to wielding the megaphone. The basic flaw apparently is the slow screenplay. In addition, a taut job was warranted by the editor. The tongue-in-cheek humour was pretty much coming. It also takes a perfect dash of slapstick to strike a balance for a good comedy, which was missing too (should have taken cue from David Dhawan/ Priyadarshan). Having said that there is better quality of tongue-in-cheek humour on telly, so how do you make a movie stand a notch above? Abbas-Mustan as producers should have kept a tab on the proceeding.
