     16Slapstick comedy by the same director-star 
     17team responsible for Raja Babu (1994). 
     18Govinda plays Raju, a coolie who falls for the 
     19rich Malti (K. Kapoor). Shadiram Gharjode 
     20(Amrapurkar), a marriage fixer, sees this as an 
     21opportunity to take revenge on Malti’s father 
     22Hoshiyar Singh (Khan). Raju masquerades as 
     23Kunwar Mahendra Pratap, the son of a 
     24Bombay-based millionaire (Kharbanda), and 
     25marries Malti under false pretences. The rest of 
     26the film interweaves Raju’s desperate efforts to 
     27maintain the masquerade, which includes 
     28having to invent a twin brother, with the 
     29millionaire’s evil son’s efforts to kill his father. 
     30In the end, the millionaire, saved in hospital by 
     31Raju (disguised as a woman), disowns his son 
     32and makes Raju his heir. Numerous songs and 
     33a large number of stock characters of the by 
     34now familiar Dhawan-Govinda genre include 
     35comedians Shakti Kapoor as Malti’s Uncle who 
     36speaks with a lisp and Tiku Talsania as the cop 
     37who unravels the whole mystery.
