    Tanaaz Irani’s golden phrase is aptly coined for comic tortures like this. In making for ages, a not so happening comedy…

    Flamboyant playboy Raj (Govinda) depends financially on his rich but out of shape wife Kiran (Sushmita Sen). He also keeps young Dolly (Lara Dutta) and somehow manages both of them. A suspicious Kiran takes help of her old friend Nunnu (Ranvir Shorey) to spy on Raj, who now has to find a way out. He gets Govardhan (Ritesh) to act as Dolly’s boyfriend and dodge Nunnu. To catch Raj red handed all the above characters assemble in a hotel where Raj is in a rendezvous with Dolly. Accidentally Nunnu gets stuck in a window and dies. The nosy waiter (Rajpal Yadav), who once worked for Raj, and Dolly’s psycho boyfriend Diesel (Sohail Khan) also add up to the crowd to create more confusion. How everything gets sorted out (if at all) is what follows…

    A story very similar to this (and also imported) has been made a decade ago by Prakash Mehra and Harry Baweja, and even the seasoned actors like Naseer and Rekha couldn’t save that flopbuster “Mujhe Meri Biwi Se Bachao”. With Nadeem-Shravan in the crew, this surely falls in the period of their “Barsaat” and “Dosti”, i.e. 2005, and when David Dhawan also was not in his elements in terms of the comic timing.

    The story has capability to build a decent laugh riot out of it, but the loud and cheap scenario and dialogue play the spoil sport. Yunus Sajawal and Amit Aryan’s writing lacks grip and right punches, and the gags are mostly over the top and ineffective. The slapgate on Rajpal Yadav is reproduced from the situations in SAB TV’s “FIR”, which in fact looks more authentic, and coincidentally penned by Amit Aryan himself. Direction and editing are strictly average.

    Performances: Barring the “Dolly Dolly Dolly” mantra, Govinda is out of form (and shape as well). Ritesh is in his usual style of harassed comic character, and he is alright. Lara Dutta’s costumes are cut at the right places but not her performance. The spark of “No Entry”, “Masti” and “Partner” is missing. Sushmita Sen acts well in selective films, and unfortunately this is not the chosen one. Ranvir Shorey and Rajpal Yadav are alright. Rituparna and Raja Bundela are treated as extras. Sohail Khan and Manoj Pahwa are over the top, only to fall from there.

    Music: Very sorry to see Nadeem-Shravan (the pair who brought back melody to Hindi cinema) copying Pritam’s style for their survival. Disappointing score.
