Storyline

Uncertainty results in the life of Delhi-based Raj when his wealthy wife, Kiran, the sole heir to the Saxena Group of Companies, finds out that he may be having an affair with leggy model, Dolly, who is being stalked by her possessive ex-boyfriend, Diesel. Kiran hires a private detective, Nunnu, who secretly loves her, to follow Dolly and Raj around. To pull wool over their eyes, Raj recruits a former waiter, Goverdhan, to pose as Dolly's live-in boyfriend, while an embittered former employee, Mangu, prepares to blackmail Raj. Hilarious chaos results when Raj starts to suspect that Goverdhan and Dolly are having an affair. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Please, Do (K)not Disturb
20 November 2009 | by (Jammu, India) – See all my reviews

Do Knot Disturb sees the return of David Dhawan's favorite story, the infidelity story. This coincides with the return of his favorite actor, Govinda. So, is it worth disturbing the theaters for? Govinda plays a man who cheats on his wealthy wife (Sushmita Sen) with a hot model (Lara Dutta). Unfortunately for him, his wife finds out and sets her childhood friend (Ranvir Shorey) to gather evidence against him. Now, Ranvir has had a crush since childhood on Sushmita, so decides to go the full hog to get any evidence. Govinda decides to put his wife's suspicions to rest, so he hires a waiter (Ritesh Deshmukh) to act as Lara's boyfriend. But Lara also has a real boyfriend (Sohail Khan) who suffers from anger pangs. What follows is the mayhem of Do Knot Disturb.

Now, Dhawan is surely a believer in chaos theory. But he needs to understand that there are limits to the amount of chaos someone can fit into a scenario. DKD descends into a farcical situation where the chaos is not funny, it's just chaos. Also, is a slap comedy? Given the situation, yes. Are 2? Suppose so. DKD, unfortunately, has a plethora of slaps. Everyone seems to be slapping everyone, and it's not funny. 50 slaps is not comedy, it's a slap fest. Poor work by the writers. Let's bear in mind here that Dhawan is working with a sub-par script. That makes me feel sympathetic for him to some extent. He tries his best to make this ensemble rise above the script, but fails; hampered by the shoddy work done before him.

Govinda tries hard and succeeds to some extent. But playing the man with the roving eye in David Dhawan's movies has been his main role throughout his career. He looks a little overweight in some parts of the movie, though. Riteish Deshmukh does a good job. He stands tall in front of Govinda, and even steals the show from him in some scenes. He is the best performer in the movie.

Sushmita Sen should have picked another movie for her comeback. She has a miniscule role with nothing to do. Lara Dutta looks glamorous, but has little else to do. Sohail Khan is good in a small appearance, but could have done better in a meatier role. Ranvir Shorey shouldn't be in this movie. And all the 'John Matthews' jig, only increases the runtime by 20 minutes, while adding nothing, including laughs.

The songs are the regular David Dhawan fare, with only Neeraj Shridhar's 'Bebo' being hummable. The sets are good, and look realistic. In fact, they seem the only realistic thing about this movie.

Final Verdict: After having ranted so much, you must have guessed my final verdict. Please, give it a miss.
