Govinda's Tapori Special.
17 March 2005 | by faltu_faltuSee all my reviews

Enjoy it but don't use brain while watching this movie.

Kuku Kohli do a David Dhawan and that too better than later.

It's amazing how actors like Govinda & Jonny Lever can make a movie so much entertaining when it has nothing in it.

Pluses: Govinda - He seems effortless. Johny Lever - Hilarious impersonation of Daler Mehndi. Tapori Dance - Timing with Simran and Tandon is amazing. Tapori Songs - Enjoyable tukbandi.

Minuses: Bad Story. Bad Acting - except Govinda. Average direction

Here he tries to whip up the usual concoction of gag bag humour in a double role as Rahul, the rich tycoon and Raja, a poor waiter. Rahul lives in a big mansion with his stepmother, Aruna Irani, and uncle, Prem Chopra, who is eyeing his property and is always scheming to grab it.

Raja always dream of becoming rich. He gangs up with his girl friend, Sapna (Raveena Tandon) and friend, Sattaar (Satish Shah) and kidnaps the rich one. But his conscience gives him trouble so he let him go, which lets a strange villain, Tiger Tadipaad who tries desperately to look menacing, enter the scene. He abducts the rich guy and then tries to create plastic terror.

But, as Shakespeare says, all is well that ends well. Raja makes use of his resemblance with Rahul and after usual antics, succeeds in freeing him from the villain's clutches. Aruna Irani gets her son back, Sona (Simran) gets her fiancée back and there is sudden change of heart in the scheming uncle. And, they live happily ever after.

If you like Govinda movies, don't miss this one.
