Storyline

Naive villager Shyamsunder, who sings, comes to Bombay to try his luck with Bollywood and wealth. He ends up on the streets, playing for small alms. He meets with another musician, Muthu Swami, and both attempt to meet the owner of Tips Cassettes, Mr. Khurana, for an audition, in vain though. Then one day, Shyamsunder meets beautiful Divya, the only daughter of Mr. Khurana, and both fall in love with each other. Divya would like to marry Shyamsunder, and also further his career. What she does not know is that Shyamsunder loves another woman from his village by the name of Pooja, who he has promised to marry. Pooja arrives in the city, and with Divya already present there, Shyamsunder and Muthu Swami invent a look-alike of Shyamsunder, with hilarious results. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Mindless fun with the Govinda- david dhawan- kader khan template
11 August 2019 | by vikas_ninty9See all my reviews

Saajan chale sasural is one of the best comedy entertainers from the 90s. Follows the same template of putting govinda in situations that can induce the maximum laughs for the audiences. KAder khan- Govinda magic works like magic in every scene they are in. The villans are caricatures the songs are fun.
