Storyline

A statue in a town's square narrates to a journalist the story of 9th standard-failed, unemployed, trouble-maker and stutterer Premshankar Sharma. Premshankar, cons Mr. Pinto into buying a dilapidated flat to pay for expenses of the Happy Club over which he presides, much to the disapproval of his restaurateur father, Shivshankar, who wants him to wed Shakuntala Mishra. Premshankar's life will undergo many changes after he falls in love with Pinto's adopted daughter, Jenny. He believes that she also loves him, and even helps her to elope after her parents force her to wed wealthy Tony. Premshankar ends up in despair when he finds out that Jenny's true love is Canada-based Rahul, the son of wealthy politician, Pitambar Jalan. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Worth Watching Once.
13 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having known that this was a romantic comedy, it was a bit of a let down. A no good for nothing son, who operates a club from his father's business premises, accidentally falls in love, while trying to help his friend.

Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Upen Patel, Darshan Jariwala, Smita Jakar, Zakir Hussein and Mithilesh Chaturvedi, while Salman Khan does make a special appearance. This is directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi and is produced by Ramesh S Taurani while Pritam provides the music score.

Ranbir Kapoor has, again, definitely shown that he is talented by attempting a good performance in romantic / comedy movie genre. He is like a likable rogue. Katrina Kaif, has made a good attempt in such a genre movie. But it is a bit hard not to imagine her from her previous roles. But never the less, she has made a good attempt at this. Salman Khan's appearance, though brief does create impact regarding the comic situation but I felt that there was no need for that as the director and the producer could have taken it from another angle.

Many of the comic situations are predictable and therefore a bit of a let down there. But Pritam's music score is worth listening to as are some of the songs. This is a film that can be viewed with family members and is worth watching at least once.
