Star Performance

As all are the talented and experienced artists, they had done their part quite well, naturally. Anil Kapoor and Madhuri scenes are interesting and they are the most comical duo in the cast. Rest of the stars had done what is assigned to them.


Although the script sounds well in the paper, the execution is a bit disappointing. Besides this, the screenplay is unimpressive. The main plus is the star cast and their exemplary performance. After a long time, we witness Madhuri and Anil Kapoor together on the screen and their chemistry is laudable. Thanks to the casting team. Some of the characters are not written properly and hence their presence didn’t create much impact. Even, Ajay’s character should have been better. The comedy track between Madhuri and Anil is better than the rest of the stars.

What’s There?

  • The huge star cast is a big plus
  • Performance of the stars are excellent
  • Madhuri – Anil chemistry worked out well

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay should have been better
  • Execution disappoints at times
  • Some characters are half-baked


Although the film has a huge star cast with favorite stars, there is something missing in the film. However, the film is watchable once for Madhuri – Anil combo!
