Storyline

Mrs. Malhotra's (Reema Lagoo) twin sons were separated at birth, so now she only has one son beside her. Since then she has been in shock and confined to a wheelchair in the USA. Quiet and mature Prem (Salman Khan), one of the twins, returns to India with his father Mr. Malhotra (Dalip Tahil) and mother Mrs. Malhotra to marry outgoing and precocious Mala (Karishma Kapoor), who is the daughter of Mr. Sharma (Kader Khan). There Prem meets his identical twin brother Raja (also Salman Khan) who is a thief and also exactly the opposite in nature to Prem. A series of comic scenes result as a result of the twins getting together. Raja loves quiet and mature Roopa (Rambha) and both the girls are confused by the change they perceive in their respective lovers. To muddy the waters Tiger Ratanlal (Mukesh Rishi) has sworn vengeance against the Malhotra family for what they did to his father (Deepak Shirke). Written by Soumitra

Timepass.
25 November 2004 | by ChiBronSee all my reviews

Judwaa is nothing awesome, just a good time-pass flick meant to be watched when u've nothing else to do on a rainy(or snowy in my case) day. Salman Khan plays a double role here(judwa bros separated at birth) - one obviously grows up to be a 'chaalu sadak chap' with a good heart, and the other is a straight fwd. music star('bholu raam') who lacks his other brother's balls. Salman's task is to be funny here, and considering comedy has always been his strong suit(well, till abt 1999. He lost his mind after that); he naturally does a good job at portraying both characters. Among the ladies both Rambha and Karishma do a good job of showing off their anatomies in song picturisations. The music is catchy and blends in perfectly with the storyline. Anupam Kher and Satish Shah as the silly but cute cops are hilarious.

Judwaa on the whole is basically a light hearted comedy featuring actors who are proved comedians. I would give it a decent 7/10.
