The legend of Santoshi!!!
5 November 2009 | by arpit-gargSee all my reviews

The movie belongs to Raj Kumar Santoshi. He is back in form. There are a number of genres of comedy currently prevalent in Bollywood. Govinda-David's, Priyadarshan's and Rohit Shetty's. One thing that unifies them all is "loud comedy". Here is where Santoshi is different. Comedy comes from situations and dialogues and not their loud delivery aka Akshay , Govinda, Raj Pal Yadav of late. The screenplay is excellent.

Santoshi creates a fairytale land and a fairy tale story. Yet it seems so real and close to heart. Ranbir Kapoor's charm , Katrina's innocence and Santoshi's brilliance takes the movie to another level. Sure its not Andaj Apna Apna, but still scenes stand out in your memory long after. First meatier role for Katrina, she flourishes and how! You might not want to see it again and again, but it's also not a movie to be missed.
