15 December 2005 | by snehmeltSee all my reviews

I had heard a lot about this movie. Its songs became the most popular, especially " One ,two, three..". "This world has slept" gave a break to legendary singer Mukesh's son -Nitin Mukesh.

Laxmikant-Pyarelal's music was inspired by some tune they had heard a marriage band playing, so it is said. But the movie itself is a disappointment, for I expected cinema. It is a typical Hindi film with songs and dances. A rare thought provoking moment is when Suresh Oberoi's character questions Munna, about escaping responsibility. Having said this , Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit have given their best performances. Their performances lift the movie, give life to some exaggerated scenes. It is probably Chunky Pandey's only well acted movie.

Suresh Oberoi also plays his cameo well. But the film didn't deserve all the accolades it got.
