How many times have you given up reason fully, laid back and resigned completely
to utter nonsense and then realized that you actually enjoyed it? Taking refuge
under absolute idiocy, this would have come about like just any other worthless
piece of movie-making with only one difference - it is undeniably, in its own
corny way, funny.
Satish Kaushik has a host of stars here, all known for their good comic timing. Amongst them is none other than the director himself, with Anupam Kher, Paresh Rawal and the wonderful duo of Amitabh Bachchan and Govinda. And to bring in just a few more laughs, we have the pair in duplicate - and radically different in characters at that. So we have this upright and severe cop-duo, and an equally unscrupulous pair of con artistes making for the double-role scenario.
The ladies play the love interests of the cops, and do nothing much other than some incredibly commonplace song-dance sequences, which go completely in tune with the mood of the movie. With no attempt to bring in any serious melodrama into the feature, logic shamelessly sacrificed to double entendres and a story that doesn't hold any heat, the film makes do with a host of amazing actors showing what comedy can do to even the shabbiest of story-lines.
The story has the upright cops hunting hard to bring home (read jail) a group of meanies (Rawal and his gang). Enter the con pair who are fatefully united (not before some good laughs) with the cops, and together they have the gang on its knees.
The direction in nothing to speak of, except that the utterly corny humour does hold an appeal. But the music of the movie scores yet another hit (thanks to Anu Mallik) with all the numbers being quite hummable. Special mentions go to "Kiss Disco Mein Jaye" and a number featuring Madhuri Dixit.
So if you haven't caught this flick when it was originally released, catch this rerun now for some utterly meaningless fun. If you can totally discard reason and logic, that is.
