| Good comedy
David Dhawan- Govinda are a great team ever since SWARG(1990) though their first film was TAAQATWAR(1989)

The film has a simple story but it's damn funny In 1997 David had 5 releases HERO NO.1(hit), JUDWAA(superhit), BANARASI BABU(flop), MR & MRS KHILADI(flop) and DEEWANA MASTANA(hit)

DD's favourite jodi known in 2 hero films are Sanju and Govinda but actually Anil- Govinda came out the best here This film is also special because this is dedicated to Manmohan Desai who died in 1994 and his son produced this film The story is simple, a love triangle and how 2 guys fight and try for a girl but knowing DD and his comedy the film is made a fun ride and it works

The start is good, Anil's character is well introduced and then the scenes involving Anil and Juhi are okay but the real fun starts when Govinda enters and his swimming pool scene is the most funny one His scenes with Juhi especially the scene where he tells about his sickness is hilarious The games Anil and Govinda play keep you in splits while the entire track of both acting like inspectors is hilarious Even the Papuu Pager scene is funny The ending too is surprising and well handled

Any flaws The length is one, the film does drag at times and secondly too many songs Also the film was in making for 2-3 years and the looks of actors keep changing but all this is forgiven

Direction by DD is superb Music is good

Amongst actors Govinda and Anil are perfect in their respective roles while Anil plays a tapori kinda role which he specialised and does a great job His timing with Govinda is perfect and also with Johny Govinda too does his best and keeps you in splits, he played a similar role in PARTNER(2007) but this is better Juhi Chawla compliments both well Johny Lever is hilarious, nice to see him less loud and over the top like he mostly is in other films barring some In this film he is kept under control and is hilarious Amongst rest Anupam Kher does his usual madness, Reema Lagoo is okay Shakti Kapoor is as usual, Saeed Jaffrey is theatrical as usual Salman Khan is okay in a cameo
