Waah! Tera Kya Kehna
Govinda, Raveena Tandon, Preeti Jhangiani
Rating: ? *
It?s sad to see how such a talented actor like Govinda refuses to grow up and attempt newer things instead of doing such tried and tested fare again and again. Manoj Agarwal?s WTKK is once again a pathetic attempt to recapture the David Dhawan type of comedy but it completely fails to evoke any laugh.
The film revolves around Raj (Govinda), the mentally imbalanced grandson of Krishna Oberoi (Shammi Kapoor). Business tycoon Oberoi dotes on Raj but his other two sons, Shakti Kapoor and Rana Jung Bahadur and grandson Mohnish Behl are constantly planning ways to get rid of Raj and take over the moolah. And finally when they get a chance, they knock off the old man when Raj is holidaying in Shimla. They also get lucky when Raj disappears in an avalanche and the entire property comes their way officially. But their picnic is short lived as Banne Khan (Govinda?s humshakal???) suddenly appears on the scene along with his Hyderabadi belle (Raveena Tandon) and shocks the crooks. Amidst this predictable yet weird story is Preeti Jhangiani who?s there for the song and dance routine. The end finally sees the real truth out as the real Govinda comes forward and claims his rightful share.
Watching this film makes you wonder what a filmmaker like Manoj Agarwal must be going through in his head while making such rubbish? Banking on Govinda totally, didn?t he realize that in today?s times, it?s Govinda bechara who needs decent scripts and filmmakers to rescue his sagging career? On the technical front too, the film fails to impress. The screenplay and story are pathetic (Rajat Bedi and Ashish Vidhyarthi?s tracks needed more justification) and Jatin ?Lalit?s music is best forgotten. Even the cinematography and dialogues are not worth a mention. But what is most disappointing about this tragedy is apna Chi-Chi bhaiyya. The poor actor looks fat, disinterested and just not in form. Adding to his woes are Raveena Tandon (average) and Preeti Jhangiani (eeeeks). Wonder why the director made a film where no department is up to the mark? The light moments, usually the USP of any Govinda film, fail to evoke mirth and as for the rest of this tacky film, it?s more a tragedy than anything else. Please don?t see this double-trouble, unless you want to go insane!
