India's Equivalent
9 September 2008 | by guardians2006See all my reviews

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.

Millionaire Seth Amirchand (Kader Khan) has two spoil sons; Monu (Govinda) and Sonu (Sanjay Dutt). Both have become very lazy and are used to the rich and easy lifestyle. Their father decides to put an end to this by not giving them any more money. So both Monu & Sonu try to con their father through numerous pranks, which always backfires.

Seth Amirchand decides to have the two brothers separated in order to have better control and more influence on their lives. Sonu is sent to his father's office in Mumbai while Monu is sent to Goa to collect an unpaid debt on his father's behalf. While in Goa Sonu meets and falls in love with Pooja (Pooja Batra). At the same time Monu meets Ritu (Karishma Kapoor), who is staying at a girls hostel while attending medical college, and falls in love with her. Both brothers doesn't know that Ritu and Pooja are sisters.

When Sonu wants to marry Pooja he goes to her father Gulzarilal (Anupam Kher) to ask her hand in marriage, but scared of his strict father he tells Gulzarilal that his uncle will come instead making up some excuse why his father cannot come. But who does he find to play his uncle..? His brother Monu of course, who disguises himself as an older man.

But realizing that his girlfriend Ritu is there, after completing college, Monu makes sure that he remains under disguise at all times so that his brother can marry. But what follows is identify crisis that will test the two brothers to the limit...
