Bad movie with a bad direction
29 June 2010 | by jahangirhussain74See all my reviews

This movie is a remake of the superhit Hollywood movie 'Sleeping with the Enemy' starring Julia Roberts.

This movie is badly made with almost no direction by the comedy king David Dhawan.

The name David Dhawan itself is a reason for you to deduce that you're going to watch a brainless, no substance rehash of SWTE.

The only thing worth watching in the movie was Madhuri Dixit. She looked awesome in all her dance numbers and carried the movie on her own. Watch this piece of crap only for Madhuri but don't expect anything else.

There are lots of happenings in the movie that did not make sense.

As for Rishi Kapoor, the less said the better. Raj Babbar is a complete miscast as the perverted and abusive lover. Kader Khan as the aging grandfather is okay. Shakti Kapoor and Tej Sapru are average.

Music is always a plus point in most of David Dhawan's movies. 'Mera Piya Ghar Aaya' is a song that will make you groove your hips. Other songs of the movie are okay too. Cinematography is not bad. Editing was so inconsistent that it leaves bumps in your throat.

Overall, a poor show!
