Really weird, bad costuming/production values but somehow really funny!
knowing that this had been made way back before Saif was a respected actor but only just recently released i viewed it with trepedition.
Having not expected much i was surprised to find that i actually liked it. Okay, so saif's hairline recedes in some of the songs (oviously filmed at a later date) and his, Sanjay's, Bipasha's and Kim's looks do keep changing. The songs are not memorable and the plot is just plain weird.
However, Saif gives the kind of cheeky-but-charming performance he is well known for and Sanjay impressed me in a comedy role. Bipasha looks young and beautiful.
It involves two opposite-personality kind of thieves who get jobs at Bips' hotel in order to steal some money. Once there a lot of jokes (and of course, romance) ensue. Personally i find it really picks up when they jet off to Mauritius and find the guy they are trying to take money from is dead. From there on in they need to pretend he is alive and so walk with him, dance with him etc to make it seem so. This basically covers the second half of the movie. You might say that such a joke is in bad taste (and perhaps so) but by the time the dead body is being revived by some local mauritius pop song and boogying its way to where the money is hidden, you won't care. Seriously hilarious.
I fully believe that with a few tweaks to the script, some more money, better songs etc this film could have been a hit!
