Silly, but cute
30 December 2002 | by ziggy9802See all my reviews

The general idea behind the movie is interesting. The movie itself was predictable. SRK was so funny at the beginning! The songs weren't that good; some were catchy, some weren't. The action scene left a lot to be desired by Western standards, but weren't that bad for a Hindi film. The ending was cute too.
