After watching Concept Productions’ Jodi Kya Banayi, Wah Wah Ramji! we think we know why its original director Raman Kumar washed his hands off it even before the film had released. Probably he knew what was coming. This mish mash of Dil, Hum and scores of other masala flicks fails to rise above its strictly average status despite the presence of the dependable Paresh Rawal.
Kalicharan (Gulshan Grover) and Vishwanath (Tiku Talsania) are jigri friends and business partners who wear identical clothes, travel by the same car and swear by each other’s eccentricities. Their respective children, Priyanka (Reema Sen) and Vishal (Amarr Upadhyay) are unfortunately always at loggerheads. To make their children see love, the two oldies decide to get them married within three months time. Priyanka and Vishal seek murder mystery writer Ram Prasad’s (Paresh Rawal) help. Prasad in turn wants to write a love story, which his publisher (a stammering Rakesh Bedi) wants him to write. By the time Ramprasad tries to break the friendship of the two old men which in turn would make them call off their children’s marriage, the ever-bickering couple has fallen in love after a cliched Roop tera mastana sequence. Now the hitch is the old friends have turned bitter enemies after an out-of-work Kalicharan lookalike has been planted in the house by Ramprasad... Confusion abounds and the viewer is led through tiresome gags and silly lines to the climax where all’s well that ends well.
Seriously, you want to thank Lord Ram to have finally made this ordeal over. Reema Sen is at her cantankerous worst while Amarr exudes a boyish charm. Rawal once again sleepwalks through the role. All said and done, don’t venture into cinema halls this weekend, instead stay tuned to the Telgi scam, at least that assures of new twists and interesting turns.
