It is said for Govinda movies that keep your brains in your
pockets and enter the cinema hall and if you offer even a
damn to logic, you will be butchered on the seat by the extra
terrestrial happenings on the screen. But what happens when
you adopt the trick and still get butchered? Watch Kunwara
and figure it out. The czars of comedy (good & bad both) David
Dhawan and Govinda team up after almost a year and the outcome
believe it or die, sucks.
for a few sporadic funny instances, this movie replete with
songs erupting every time like bolts from the blue, is absolutely
a vacuum, leaving you gasping for breathe at the end of it.
Story is best not told because there is none. Even if you
spare a mole of consideration for the story or whatever it
is, you just cannot find a link any where for the spooky things
transpiring in front of you.
(Govinda of course) runs a hotel in New Zealand and Urmila
(Urmila Matondkar) is out there for a holiday. Both fall in
love after an imbroglio (and you are suppose to laugh at that)
and Raju has to return to his village. On his way he bumps
into Sharmila (Naghma) whose lover is absconding leaving her
pregnant. Obviously she is about to end her life from the
fear of his martinet father, Thakur Balraj Pratap Singh (Om
Puri) and obviously Raju has to assume the responsibility
of her welfare which leads to an enormous medley of affairs
that gets even ludicrous with Urmila returning home from the
Holiday only to find her lover Raju is now her Jijaji. Thankfully,
David Dhawan realizes that ultimately the movie has to end.
movie which is a remake of Bavagaru Bagunnara in Telugu
has a shade of comfort though with no villainous screams,
no streams of crocodile tears, no tossing of four wheelers
like a sponge ball, no rattling of the 'look to appear real'
plastic trinkets (read guns and rocket launchers and AK 47
s and…) no chest beating of patriotism and goodliness etc.
etc… Govinda is at his usual ease with such kind of roles.
Urmila as Govinda's new partner appeared to be a little bit
amateurish as compared to his earlier partners. Johnny Lever
as Govinda's friend and Kader Khan as the Grandpa of Urmila
are at their usual best and so is Om Puri as the autocratic
father of the two girls.
all this, have you ever heard of the story of the crow that
after looking at swan tries to rub itself with marble thinking
that this will turn it white? Well, that's what David Dhawan
tried to do with Kunwara…….Kabada
