Have fun - David Dhawan style


Partner movie review

Prem (Salman Khan) comes across Bhaskar Diwakar Chaudhury (Govinda) who is in love with Priya (Katrina Kaif) the rich daughter of a millionaire business tycoon Raichand (Dalip Tahill). Though reluctant at first, how Bhaskar wins over Prem’s heart so that Prem can help him win over Priya’s heart is the rest of the movie. Continue reading Partner movie review…

Yes there are some misunderstandings which are resolved rather quick, as well as an unfinished and unneeded track of an underworld don called Chhota Don (Rajpal Yadav) who seems inspired by both Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Though the basic premise of the movie is the same as well as a number of sequences which have been lifted directly, Sanjay Chhel’s screenplay does give the it’s own look and feel which in turn makes PARTNER it’s own unique movie.

In PARTNER it’s an equal show for both Salman and Govinda to showcase their mettle and Chhel has carefully crafted the script to take this in to account. Easily if one wanted to sit here and pick faults they could easily fill up more than an hour, however our David Dhawan’s formula has always been “leave your brains at home” and PARTNER is no difference. On the other hand this can be over-looked as the focus here is primarily on Salman Khan and Govinda.

The performances in the movie are absolutely entertaining to the maximum. Salman Khan is very natural in his performance which personifies and cements Salman Khan’s star status. He looks lively and better than some of his just released movies, and performs his comic scenes with ease. Certain scenes in the movie which only he could’ve pulled off. He has done well in moments with the kid and even excelled in his dance.

Govinda really needed a movie like this and yes, he has erased negative memories of the frequent failures of his movies lately. There is a certain magic that Govinda creates when he is in form in a comedy film. It seems the role is tailor-made for him and gives him the chance to to weave the magic on-screen that only he can.

Its Govinda all the way with his absolutely blistering blast of energy, impeccable and flawless comic timing, unbeatable dialogue delivery and masala-filled dance steps which bring smiles, laughter to the viewer till the very end.

The story by David Dhawan and Yunus Sejawal has been inspired by Andy Tennant’s Will Smith-Kevin James starrer HITCH. The entire premise of the movie remains the same with Smith being replaced by Prem aka Salman Khan, a date doctor who has helped hundreds of men woo the girls of their dreams and find true love. The ultimate bachelor playboy Prem finally meets his match and finds the women of his dreams, Naina (Lara Dutta) a feisty newspaper journalist.
