Aamir and Juhi Reunite in Mahesh Bhatt's Funniest Film
Mahesh Bhatt's 'Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke' is an out and out comedy. The film isn't entirely original as it lifts from sources like 'Adventures in Babysitting' but the humour works most of the time. I don't understand why so many criticize the movie for being too silly. 'Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke' doesn't take itself seriously so why should the viewer? It's an entertainer from start to finish, that's it. Why should one expect otherwise? The soundtrack is of the foot-tapping sort and very hummable. The romantic songs that include 'Mujhse Mohabbat', 'Ghoongat' and 'Woh Mere Neend' are the best. They're visualized amusingly.
Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla have already proved to be a great on screen pair and here they shine once again. Aamir Khan it effective in a suitably restrained performance but it is Juhi Chawla who steals the show with her comic nirvana. Easily she (along with Sridevi) is the funniest actor in the history of Hindi cinema and it would be a tough challenge for any actor to match up to that. Moreover, her effortless dialogue delivery in Tamil (especially for someone who doesn't speak the language) only further prove what a gifted actress she is.
Of the child actors, Kunal Khemu leads the trio while the other two are passable at best. I found Dilip Tahil irritatingly loud while Navneet Nishan was good as the caricature seductress.
'Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke' is Mahesh Bhatt's funniest film. It does remind one of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's evergreen comedies (even though the execution, in comparison is a little less sophisticated).
