Govinda and songs have given some happiness
(1) The Movie --: As far as the overall movie is concerned, it is a typical Bollywood entertainer, which makes you to laugh many times and entertains you well. Govinda's comic timing, first time pairing of Salman and Govinda, very good songs and music, beautiful locals and witty dialogues make it watchable.Though it would have been much better if director had done some extra job in screenplay but still he has done a good job to come up with such an entertainer as he has mastered the skill.
(2) An Acting --: As far as acting is concerned, Govinda stands out among all with his acting and comic timing as always but still he is not at his best. Salmankhan also accompanied him well and showed his screen presence with his personality. Again he has given good example by accepting role with Govinda as with Amitabh in "Baghbaan". Katrina looks pretty and suites with the role very well. Lara acted well but lacking in glamour as per need of the role. Rajpal Yadav also acted well as "Chota Don" and put in some humour.
(3) Music and Songs --: All five songs of the movie are good in one or another way. Sajid-Wajid has given a good music album. Title song is a well-made class song. "Dupatta" song is well-choreographed good dance number. "Soni De Nakhre" and O My Love" are also good dance numbers. " Maria" song is also a good duet song. All good singers of today such as Udit Narayan, Shaan, Sonu Nigam, Kunal Ganjawala, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal and others have given good justice. Songs are also well choreographed in the movie.
(4) Improvements --: Though movie is a good entertainer but still it has some drawbacks. Screenplay is the major fault in the movie. I don't think copying from Hollywood is wrong idea but it needs some additional work to make it perfect Bollywood filmy story. Lara Dutta acted well but somehow she doesn't add glamour to the role at the moment as per requirement. So she would have been replaced with other actress. The whole episode of child artist is boring and so it would have been changed with some other story line.
(5) Summary --: Movie is good to watch for Govinda's comic timing, for chemistry between Salman-Govinda and for very good songs. Just don't look for logic and leave your brain at home as per always said for David Dhawan movie. The entire movie is good to watch for entertainment and to have some laughter. Don't forget to get bonus (laughter) in the end.I would give it 6/10.
