A typical Govinda movie, with lots of wise cracks and goof ups.....but HILARIOUS !

Strictly for Govinda fans only......anyone else, Handle with Care as it tends to go a bit overboard. But all in all, a good movie with loads of good peppy tracks which pop in regularly..

Downer - The 2 heroines. Saving Grace - Govinda
