Govinda teams back with David Dhawan in this Sohail Khan Produced film. Partnered by Salman Khan, Govinda shows some rustiness in the first few reels. You wonder if this is the same Govinda who effortlessly gave us hits like COOLIE NO 1. But once set, like a batsman who has got his eye in, he takes strike to show glimpses of the genius of old. And by the time the curtains come down, he re-establishes himself as an actor to reckon with in the comic genre.
It?s not exactly a no-brainer as the script runs through the film holding the scenes together. In fact, it?s entertaining and manages to raise quite a few laughs. There?s Rajpal Yadav playing Chota Don; he performs his role with ease and endears himself to the viewers. There?s also Suresh Menon as Kiran, Katrina Kaif?s gay friend. But the surprise pack, I?d say is Salman Khan. With Govinda, he coordinates well to pull off some exceptional scenes with ease.
Costumes by Alvira Agnihotri and Choreography by the Bosco Ceasar duo are to the mark, so are dialogues by Sanjay Chhel. He uses the play on words to bring in subtle humour. The music too by Sajid Wajid can be bracketed in the top league.
Starring Salman Khan, Govinda, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif, PARTNER has the ingredients of a summer smash hit comedy.
Although 99% of the women always get the man they desire, 99% of the men never get the women they love. That?s when the Love Guru steps in.
Love Guru, Prem (Salman Khan) likes nothing better than helping lonely souls find their soul mates. Love Guru faces the biggest challenge of his career when a common man, Bhaskar Devakar Chudhary (Govinda), for this nerdy guy falls helplessly in love with the most eligible socialite in town ? Priya Jaisingh (Katrina Kaif).
As Prem teaches his worst but most ardent student Bhaskar, he finds himself getting involved with touch-me-not journalist Naina (Lara Dutta). While Love Guru has succeeded in giving a happy ending to many love stories, he faces an uphill task when it comes to his own love story with Naina Sahani who has her own set of problems.
This summer get ready for a story of a dude and a common man, from the king of comedies, David Dhawan.
