     14Munnu and Bunnu (Govinda, Pandey) form a 
     15slapstick comedy duo as the wayward sons of 
     16the jeweller Hasmukh (Khan). They become 
     17entangled in a plot to create via plastic surgery 
     18a double for the Chief Minister (Babbar in a 
     19dual role) in order to arrange the release of the 
     20criminal Natwar Shyam (Grover). The first half 
     21of the film consists solely of the duo’s antics as 
     22they fall for Priya and Ritu (Rageshwari, 
     23Shivpuri). In the second half, Munnu is 
     24abducted by the criminals and loses his 
     25memory, whereupon the film produces two 
     26more character doubles, Hasmukh’s long-lost 
     27twin (Khan again) and his son Gaurishankar 
     28(Govinda again). Gaurishankar is wrongly 
     29kidnapped along with his father and 
     30grandmother (Pathak), and eventually the two 
     31brothers, aided by a wayward policeman, 
     32Pyare (Amrapurkar), get the criminals. The film 
     33continued the enormous 90s success of 
     34lowbrow, rapidly cut action musicals with 
     35strident soundtracks featuring Govinda. 
     36However, the film’s main feature is that it 
     37seems to be in the grip of a compulsion to 
     38repeat, obsessively doubling its characters.
