As per me Movie deserves a rating of 4 (3 for govinda & 1 for Ranvir shorey). If Saif Ali Khans role as Yogi and Kalki's role as Visakha was scrapped and that screen time given to Govinda then it would have been a super hit.
Govinda - Reminds you of why he was such a big star in the 90's. Excellent. Deserved more screen time.
Ranvir shorey: Very Good. Deserved More screen time
Saif Ali Khan: Good. But not an earth shattering performance and still cannot own every scene he is in like Govinda can.

Priety Zinta: Looked old and Haggard. Must have been really short of money to accept a stupid role like this.
