Movie Review : Partner – Chemistry like never before
David Dhawans Partner starring Govinda and Salman Khan which released last friday is one hell of a roller coaster ride.To enjoy this movie, u definitely need to be in a land of no logics.But u r sure to go back home smiling and feeling good that u laughed a lot.This one is a laughter medicine for those who are depressed and it is sure to create atleast a smile evn on a dead man.
The movie is all about the wonderful chemistry between Govinda and Salman Khan, two senior actors seen for the first time(full length role)sharing the screen space.Each actor is best utilised by the director and the script writer giving no scope for any of them to dominate.The movie is inspired by the Will smith starrer ‘Hitch’, but it has got a identity of its own.’Cool Prem'(Salman) is a love guru and helps anyone who needs to fall in love.but he hesitates to help ‘Stupid Bhaskar'(Govinda) who has fallen for his boss and also one of the wealthiest and most successful woman(Katrina).Somehow Bhaskar convinces his guru and wins his lady love.Meanwhile, Prem himself is head over heels on a journalist Naina(Lara Dutta), but he faces a lot of problems in his own love life.He needs to convince Nainas son Rohan(Ali Haji) to win her heart and finally after a lot of misunderstanding, he succeeds.
Govinda has yet again delivered his best and it is great to see him comeback.He was completely overshadowed in Priyan’s ‘Bhaagam Bhag’ by Akshay Kumar and was lost in an ocean of stars in ‘Salaam-e-Ishq’.Even though Salmans role is quite similar to one he portrayed in ‘No Entry’ and ‘Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai’, he totally rocks in this movie as the helpless guru for Govinda.The two leading ladies has little to perform, but that is totally expected in a David Dhawan movie.The director has once again proved that he is the comedy king of Bollywood.
The movie has some of the best one liners ever and kudos to Sanjay Chell for that.The choreography by Bosco-Ceaser is excellent and it is always a pleasure to see Govinda dancing inspite of his flabs.Both Salman and Govinda dances as if they were in some sort of competition and it is hard to judge who dances better.The songs by Sajid-Wajid are too good and if anyone doesnt own a cd of Partner is sure to buy after watching the movie.The title track ” Do u wanna partner” does justice to the title and you would definitely sing this track all the way back home.
The movie has its own flaws too.The second half drags and there are a lot of unwanted scenes.There is a separate track by Rajpal Yadav playing or rather immitating both the versions of Don.He is good, but was this track necessary at all?A similar track was noticed in David Dhawans Mujse Shaadi Karogi, where Rajpal imitated Shah Rukh in Josh.
Like mentioned before, this is a movie without any logic and so dont expect any.The movie was made only to entertain and make u laugh throughout, atleast that was the way it was promoted. A must watch for the weekends with your family and friends.One would not yawn at any point of time and you “do not wanna partner” to enjoy this movie.
