Remake of SHORT TIME but good!
Govinda has done several serious roles even when he did comedy AANKHEN. This is one of those films where he gets to prove himself as an actor.
The film is a remake of SHORT TIME the initial scenes are ordinary but the scenes when Govinda comes to know about his sickness - Cancer, the entire track of being trying to die on his duty was just Superb, until Aditya one day revealing the truth and all the things turned upside down, were just brilliantly handled.
The problem with the film is that the film rests on clichés and crude scenes like the Govinda- Shilpa scenes initially and the dances which were added for Govinda's mass appeal.
Also the villainy track especially Gulshan Grover track is badly handled. The film ends too as a typical potboiler.
Direction by Dayal Nihalini is good in parts but bad in parts also. Music is good, especially the title song.
Amongst actors Govinda is as usual in comic scenes but excels in serious scenes, especially when he comes to know he has Cancer and the entire scenes later and also his outburst with Aditya proves he can deliver much more. Aditya too is very good in his part. Shilpa Shetty is typical and irritates at times. Raj Babbar is nothing great, Gulshan Grover overacts, Mohan Joshi is unbearably loud and the rest are adequate.
A good fun time watch on any day afternoon.
