Good movie - bad story
19 April 2000 | by lordguhaSee all my reviews

The basic plot is quite ambitious for a hindi movie. Salman is married to Karishma but when he hires Sushmita Sen as a model he falls in love with her and gives up his wife for her. Karishma with help from a hilarious Anil Kapoor tries to get Salman back.

It is a pretty well made film with a surprisingly good performance by Salman Khan. Sushmita was at her prettiest but personally I think Karishma and Anil Kapoor walk away with the honours. Anil Kapoor had me rolling on the floor with his witty dialogue delivery.

What really got my goat was the portrayal of hindu wives in this movie. Even though Salman had left her for another woman, karishma still keeps trying to get him back. I think it would have been more daring to show Karishma with a bit more personality and independence. Maybe even to marry Saif Ali or something. Anyway that's my 2 cents worth.

Either way a great film with good songs and dance sequences - although Salman being shorter is a bit of a let down.....
