A great comedy film that really bring in the belly laughs with witty dialogs and fine comic timing from the cast, which adds to the fine performances seen in this screwball comedy. Kader Khan is perfect as the father and will provide the biggest laughs in this film.
If you want logic in the comedy then don't expect this film to provide it. A movie directed by David Dhawan means for two and a half hours you have to forget the world we live in. The director provides us with his own world when the police are a perfect establishment, no-one is afraid of the Indian Mafia, where all the ugly guys get the good-looking females, and everyone lives happily ever after.
Its pure escapism at its finest. His work in this film is close to the early works of Indian cinema's great director's Manmohan Desai, and Hirishkesh Mukherjee, thought not as good as it lacks some form of moral or purpose of its storytelling. Still it doesn't mean we can't enjoy it if it doesn't have any of those features! The film has a couple of fine song scores provided by Anu Malik which includes the aptly titled song 'What is Mobile Number.' Well I told you there is no logic in the film just pure fun and that is where the film scores big. A film which is India's equivalent (and improvement) to the British Carry On series.
