Director

Star Cast

In Hindi films, it's the pervert middle-aged man's fantasy ? that he has a gorgeous wife at home but can still cavort with sexy girls half his age.

Extra-marital affairs have been the subject of several of David Dhawan?s films, but a treatment that ODs on infantile sexual innuendos is hardly amusing today.

In the cruel ways of the Hindi film industry yesterday's hot girlfriend (Sushmita in Biwi No 1) is today?s helpless wife being cheated on by the fat and spineless husband (Govinda).

Kiran (Sushmita) is a multi-zillionaire business honcho who roams around in helicopters wearing expensive hats. The house and cars that her husband (Govinda) uses so nonchalantly is also hers. This, we are told, is the reason he salivates over superhot Dolly (Lara Dutta). She already has a possessive boyfriend (Sohail Khan) who is infuriated with the affair.

Govinda's character brings in Riteish Deshmukh?s Gobardhan (yes, plenty of jokes on that name) to convince his wife that Gobardhan and Dolly are a pair.

Kiran, on the other hand, hires a detective (Ranvir Shorey) who keeps falling off chairs while trailing his subjects. Other characters like an unscrupulous hotel bellboy and an interfering manager also enter and story developments include a character losing memory and a look-alike pooping up for a few moments.

In the name of comedy "for the aam junta", everyone hams unbearably. Also, in the name of comedy, you have gay jokes, comparing women to property, obscene gestures, and character names like Diesel, Bunty, Nunu and Mangu. What's not funny is children in the audience taking in the overt, often vulgarly sexual overtones in the jokes and laughing along.

Govinda lives up to his reputation and arrives in orange suits, with a bright blue shirts and blindingly colourful ties. He seems out of sync and his performance is severely dreary and repetitive. Sushmita looks overweight, but manages to be fabulous as the zillionaire diva.

Lara Dutta overacts throughout. The only saving grace is Riteish Deshmukh who makes you chuckle a couple of times.

Music by Nadeem-Shravan and lyrics by Sameer give us mediocre songs like `Bebo bebo? and one that goes `Don?t leave me, main mar jaoonga?.

Do knot disturb yourself with this one; and if you must see it, kindly leave the children at home.

Verdict: One-and-a-half stars
