Rent it if you like Sonali
21 June 2002 | by alrenSee all my reviews

'Sonali Bendre' were the 2 words that coerced me to rent this movie, which normally I wouldn't have (Govinda factor) and Oh boy!, Do I get a decent portion of it :) .

The movie starts with Govinda's standard antics in a stereotypical Bollywood village. He goes on dancing and prancing around with Sonali (Kewl!). The hell breaks out when Sonali's folks go to Govinda's folks with her matrimonial. It is rejected and 'fatal illness' story (so funny) is narrated, which is miraculously cured at that moment. So Pa (Shakti) comes to take him 'home' (I never understood why the Ma did not come). The foster mom plays a drama so that Govinda goes with Pa, and he takes his Deaf and Dumb friend, ironically named 'Sannata'.

The part 2 starts, Govinda tries to acclimatize himself with the Bollywood stereotypical urban modern family which has it's own problems. In the process of solving the problems, Lo behold Rinki Khanna pops up, (where personally I think, the Kapadia lineage gets less attractive by the decent) and the romantic triangle is complete. For the rest see the movie.

Tolerable photography and storyline. Some songs are good, especially with Bendre babe, as well as well picturized. The 'Prem Che' song is pretty catchy.

Have Fun!
