Priyadarshan delivers a comedy from many of the greatest comedy entertainers
15 January 2006 | by anjshaikSee all my reviews

Basically this movie gets good when it gets into it's second half Shakti Kapoor and Rajpal Yadav are absolutely stunning they are top of the line in their roles Paresh Rawal excels in his role and the main star cast especially Akshaye Khanna delivers a great job the total misunderstandings which evolve into total chaos delivers for a total 2 and a half hour entertainer Priyadarshan's first entertainer at a crazy comedy i feel is totally worth the attempt especially when i enjoyed his comedy Hulchul which came out after Hungama the songs are OK but the best song is " Mera Dil Tere Paas Rehne Dein" Nadeem-Shravan fans strictly Inever predicted the ending of this movie but i guess it was for the better gut-bursting comedy this is ultimate hilarity at it's best that shouldn't be missed gread job from a Malayalam film director on venture on giving us some Hindi entertainment
