Lots of fun. Hugely underrated.
11 May 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Have to write a review for this one as it so really deserves it. This is one of those hugely entertaining movies which I have on my media server so that I could play them again and again (some of the others include 3 Idiots, Chup Chup Ke, Hungama, Hulchul, All the Best etc). It is a light-hearted love story with some wonderful performances not only by the leads but also by the supporting cast. Sanjay Mishra as "Chhadami" is probably the most memorable character of the movie. He is both hilarious and lovable. A lifetime role I would say. Similarly, Manoj Pahwa also gets to play a memorable role as a Hakeem Tarachand. One role that's the first to come to mind thinking of him as an actor. Kulbhushan Kharbanda does a wonderful job as well. Even protagonist's mother and grandmother, played by Meenakshi and Dolly Ahluwalia respectively, are so effective in their roles. This is a good story writing over all with quite a few very good jokes and lines. The end message (religion/culture shouldn't divide us) is also highly appreciable. It is a bit sad that this movie never got the attention and appreciation it deserved. Here is a little attempt to get it at least some of that attention.
