the movie title says, Hum Kisise Kum Nahin might just end up to
be the best of the lot as far as Bollywood comedies are concerned.
In this flick, director David Dhawan gives his best to bring out
the laughter as it progresses through the story.
(Sanjay Dutt) is the dreaded but good-hearted underworld gangster
who falls under the spell of the bewitching beauty of Komal (Aishwarya).
to comprehend a sudden change in his behavior by his close associates,
Munna Mobile and Pappu Pager, he is taken to a reputable psychiatrist
called Dr Rastogi (Amitabh).
a thorough checkup, Munnabhai is informed that he has been bitten
by the love bug. The good doctor advises him to woo the girl in
order to cure his ailment, not realising that the female in question
is his younger sister!
Dhawan adds a further twist to the matters in hand by revealing
that Komal is in fact in love with Raja (Ajay Devgan), a local vagabond
of whom the doctor is unaware.
oblivious of his sister's affair, Dr Rostogi takes his brotherly
responsibility into his own hands by matchmaking Komal with the
son of his former classmate in Malaysia. Raja of course accompanies
them both by posing as Komal's close friend.
pursuit of finding his cure, Munnabhai ends up in Malaysia too where
he discovers the true relationship between Dr Rastogi and Komal.
Well you won't be, as David Dhawan cleverly manages to untwist the
tangle he has created at the beginning of this story and in the
process brings out a riot of laughs till the final reels.
actor, Amitabh Bachchan has shown a flair for comedy in the past
and as Dr Rastogi he is once again at his comic best. The same applies
to Sanjay Dutt, who has been dabbling in comic roles in recent times.
Its very refreshing to see that side of him, compared with the macho
image which he always portrays on screen.
As for Aishwarya, she looks beautiful as ever and excels in the
peppy song sequences. But its Ajay Devgan who surprises us with
his versatile comic performance, which he enacts with great ease.
this comic flick is great if you are a David Dhawan fan. But if
you are in need of cheering up, then go along too.
