Brainless entertainer, very annoying Karishma
21 February 2009 | by long-fordSee all my reviews

Govinda movies are very much an acquired taste so keep that in mind before reading further. This is a typically brainless entertainer. There are scattered laughs, almost all of which come from Govinda himself. Kader Khan and Shakti Kapoor, both of whom are perennial David Dhawan staples, seem to be reprising familiar persona. The script is utter rubbish of course, and loses its sense of fun surprisingly fast. Karishma Kapoor is bad. She plays a scatter-brained character which unfortunately got on my nerves. This film is better avoided in my opinion.

Overall 2/10
