Produced by: Yash Johar
Directed by: Mahesh Bhatt
Starring: Juhi Chawla, Shahrukh Khan, Sonali Bendre
Musician: Anu Malik
Lyricist: Javed Akhtar
Rating: 5 out of 10

The Movie:

This is Shahrukh's first film in which he stars in a double role, his co-stars being Juhi Chawla and Sonali Bendre. It is basically about one Shahrukh (Bablu) being an innocent cook, while the other (Manu Dada) being a criminal. They co-incidentially have the same faces.
Bablu always seems to be day-dreaming, and hopes to one day become a chef in a 5-star hotel. Soon, he falls in love with Sonia (Juhi Chawla), the manager of a reputed hotel, and she seems to become part of his dreams too. Manu's girlfriend is Lily (Sonali Bendre), a night-club dancer, and they soon land up in India to continue on their crimes.
This is where the real comedy begins, as Bablu and Manu's tracks keep alternating, until finally, Bablu realises what is going on. By this time, though, he has been captured by Manu at ransom, who uses his name to escape troubles. Then comes a point when Bablu gets aggitated and finally retaliates. He gets his revenge, and hence ends the story with his dream of becoming chef comes true.

The Music:

The music has been given by Anu Malik, who has managed to give an absolutely fabulous piece, especially when refering to "Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam." Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik have once again done a wonderful job on this song, proving that they are one of India's top singers at present. It seems that the beats of this song are slightly similar to those in Virasat, but that does not effect its beauty, especially due to the enhancement made to it by the lyricist, Javed Akhtar.
"Kathai Aankhon Waali" is okay; the lyrics are good, but the music by itself could have been better. You may create a liking for it, but only after listening to it a few times. "Ladna Jhagadna" seems to be sung well, although it shows resemblance of an old O. P. Nayar song sung by Geeta Dutt and Kishore Kumar. "Tum Nahi Jaana" is satisfactory too, and "Wah Ji Wah" is giving critics some chance to oppose Kumar Sanu's singing style.
On the whole, this is another hit for Anu Malik, Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. Abhijeet and Kavita Krishnamurthy have also done quite well, and it seems that people are expecting more quality from Kumar Sanu. His "Ek Shararat Hone Ko Hai" is the only really liked song so far.
