Entertainer No.1 Govinda and 'comedy' are two vital factors in comical entertainers that go hand-in-glove with each other. Kumar Mangat's MONEY HAI TO HONEY HAI, a frothy laugh riot brings them together with bunch of hot 'n' happening stars with loads of 'masala' music in it. After making unconventional directorial debut with offbeat SWAMI, ace choreographer Ganesh Acharya makes his first commercial directorial move with this hilarious extravaganza. It also marks the first consequential commercial outing for talented composer duo Nitin Arora and Sony Chandy (Nitz 'N' Sony) who made their debut with somber sounding numbers in SWAMI. Will the music of this comical hullabaloo be making this gifted composer duo listed among list of most happening new composers? Let's find out?soothsayers predict win-win situation, is it so?

Nitz 'N' Sony makes innovative moves in incorporating peculiar sounding music, noises and genres to create a emblematic feel of a 'hilarious thriller' in sluggishly paced title track 'Money Hai Toh Honey Hai'. It is profoundly infused with thrilling electronic sounds in low paced with an intrinsically 'Chinese' musical binge in its prelude. Talented Harshdeep Kaur gets a major break from her routine Sufi and devotional genre as she is the lead vocalist for this spunky sounding number. The frothiness with glitz and gloss will surely be attracting a large section of listeners and will help it in having major takers from 'aam junta'.

Adnan Sami leads the bandwagon of funky pranksters in typical Afro-American stylized rap cum reggae number that emotes out the mindset of 'money-loving' youth in upbeat sounding 'Awaara Dil'. This lethargically paced number brings on more bizarre noises in the backdrop with Shruti Pathak, Nitz 'N' Sony, Arya, Bob, Ishq Bector, Shantanu Hudlikar joining the fun. Sameer's funky sounding lyrics with extra 'ding-ding', soft piano drills and repetitively rendered rap gives it an all together peppy outlook.

Labh Janjua, a hot favorite in Pritam's album makes a scorching chemistry with Sunidhi Chauhan in stylishly Punjabi cum Sufi folksy track 'Chhuriyaan'. This song too unravels slow-paced orchestrations flair where mix and match of folksy Punjabi and Sufi music dominates. It's a quizzically paced experimentation where the tempo has been relaxed to get a different feel for a mushy romantic appeal.

'Ta Na Na', a characteristically choreographer specialist number brings many moods for dancing on floors and beaches as this comes out in upbeat 'grind' groovy beat patterns. It sounds like a typical Govinda 'jhatkas' song where Kunal Ganjawala brilliantly modulating voices set the mood and festivity for the song. Rekha Bharadwaj voices out as lead female vocalist while back up vocals of Nitz 'N' Sony, Earl and Arya makes it modish with frenzied rap wordings.

The celebratory mood of a lavish get-together is facilitated through synchronized 'shehnai' sounds with strong punches of 'bhangra' mood taking over the proceedings in 'Rangeeli Raat'. Daler Mehndi gets a consequential outing for this typical flashy song that is amiably joined in tandem by Master Saleem, Sunidhi Chauhan and Arya.

Sunidhi's vivaciously oozed performance adds candid moments in varying overtones and gels well with the catchy rhythms of the song. It's likely to be adding glitz and grandeur for this comical adventure and likely to be newsmaker in the promos of the film.

So this is the perfect premise for once-upon-a-time choreographer Ganesh Acharya to dream up song sequences to fill up time to make up for a lack of script. Because this is where he best 'Calls the shots'.

Sad, because with a star cast like this you expected something sensible. Manoj Bajpai is reduced to doing buffoonery; Prem Chopra is being slotted for the most insane roles of late while Govinda must be wondering, where his 'Partner' is. Sad also because his debut, SWAMI was a decent movie.

There are poor clones of Ekta Kapoor and Dr Vijay Mallya as well. All in bad taste.

Ratings : 1/5

MONEY HAI TO HONEY HAI is a good-looking bad movie. The cast and crew I bet had a picnic in Mauritius at the expense of the producer. There is no story; just six characters who are shown doing varied things. Upen Patel goes after girls, Govinda walks around with a laptop, Aftab Shivdasani sneezes, Celina Jaitley has a permanent frown on her face, Manoj Bajpai is seen in red outfits while Hansika Motwani is all smiles. For the first half of the movie there is a connection being made between these main characters by director Ganesh Acharya who also appears in a song. At least Subhash Ghai appears in a fraction of a scene.

In the second half, they are willed a Rs 1000 cr company by some random maniac who only dreams numbers. They are also told that there is a bank loan of Rs 1200 cr they have to repay because the company is in the red. Makes sense?
