CAST & CREW
Do Knot Disturb directed by David Dhawan, who also brought movies like Biwi No.1 and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, presents a comedy, that's a remake of the 2006 French film The Valet (French: La Doublure). Pairing with Govinda yet again, the movie fails to impress and only relies on humor and silliness.
Plot Govinda is a rich businessman who works for his wife [ Sushmita Sen], but is only busy cheating and taking care of his mistress [ Lara Dutta]. The plot gets complicated as Sushmita Sen hires a private detective to expose her husband’s affair; Govinda hires Ritesh Deshmukh to pose as his mistress’s boyfriend while her violent ex-boyfriend [ Sohail Khan] is also on in pursuit of his lost love. A lot is discovered as the plot stirs.
Analysis The plot could be described as vulgar and noisy, while resting on a pointless story, leaving little space for acting. The film walks on thin ropes of silly situations, funny jokes and weird characters like a skilled athlete. David Dhawan’s sitcom setup along with actors likes Govinda, Rajpal Yadav, and Ritesh Deshmukh together can manage to provoke laughter if one can accept their absurd and noisy stage. Though relying on a thin plot, the match of David Dhawan and Govindaworks essentially to strengthen the movie with humor. The chemistry between Ritesh Deshmukh and Lara Dutta also ensures comic situations that are enjoyable and helps to keep the viewers hooked on a little longer. Both Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta are former Miss Universes and good actresses, yet the movie fails to exploit their full potential. To call ‘Do Knot Disturb’ a good movie though would be an understatement, which may be clear through stretched sequences and bad production.
Its vulgarity and pretentious locations work a way to over-selling and may cause contempt, even disgust if taken too seriously.
