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.
It?s all about Salman who is a Love Guru, dishing out gyaan to lovers in need of guidance to hitch their partner. Govinda is one such man who is in love with his boss, Katrina Kaif. He latches on to Salman, following him to Phuket as well, in the hope of learning the ropes of making his moves.
Lara Duta as the single mother, and a journalist working for a tabloid always on the look out for a scoop, once again comes up trumps. Katrina Kaif, has not much of a role, but in the few scenes that she is in, she holds her own. Katrina has worked on her figure and the toned, slimmed down look is any day better that the Akshay Kumar starrer HUMKO DEWAANA?
It?s entertaining alright and viewers are bound to see Salman Khan in a very different light. Is it the Govinda magic that has rubbed off on Salman, or David Dhawan?s directorial abilities? Whatever it is, if you are looking to ?Just Chill?, grab your partner, and move on to the multiplex for some laughs. You won?t exactly come back singing Chaiyaa Chaiyaa, but will definitely say, ?Wah Wah Ramji, Jodi Kya Banayi?.
