Funny but Not Memorable
15 April 2018 | by GypsiBSee all my reviews

In this comedy, two small time crooks, Raja (Anil Kapoor) and Ghafoor (Johnny Lever) get lucky and rob a payroll delivery. They go to Bombay with their loot, and Raja immediately falls in love with psychiatrist Dr. Neha (Juhi Chawla), and pretends to be a rich American to woo her. In the meantime, Bunnu (Govinda) comes to Dr. Neha for help with his many phobias; he, too, falls in love with her. Raja and Bunnu then begin a vicious rivalry to win her.

The energetic and oh-so-cute Govinda, undoubtedly the star of the show, is a delight to watch. His antics are well timed and nicely executed. Johnny Lever won an award for his performance in this movie, but I felt it wasn't up to his usual standard. Kapoor does a well enough job, but isn't a strong enough comedian to play opposite Govinda. The music is nice, with average choreography. The plot is fun, light, and occasionally silly, but though it does contain a twist, is not memorable.
