Zany Laugh Buster
18 August 2007 | by shovon-1See all my reviews

Agreed the movie's been picked up from,(1966) Fortune Cookie , but the remake is just as hilarious.There are some genuine laughs here and full marks go to the dialog writing and the actors. "Sanjeev kumar" is just tops ! he takes completely off as the ambulance chasing lawyer and the way he pulls off (or not off) this caper deserves just full marks.The rest of the supporting cast is also good ,"utpal dutt" is a wee shade off but still good,but sanjeev kumar's performance just eclipses everyone else's. Good fun, clean fun ,something that can be watched with the whole family. God why can't they make comedies like these anymore ?
