What do you usually look for in a David Dhawan-Govinda film? Mirch masala, no logic, and you expect it to be a fun film. It’s a complete David Dhawan film, so if you manage to leave behind the 8 grams in your head, you sure will enjoy Kunwara on the big screen. After two consecutive flops, Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge and Chal Mere Bhai, which were both remakes of the previously released movies, David is back with a bang this time and Kunwara only underlines that fact!
This is Govinda and Urmila’s second film together after Hum Tum Pe Marte Hain. Yes, you are right, it’s again the smashing Urmila Matondkar who sure has a lot of glamour to offer in Kunwara.
Kunwara was shot in New Zealand where the story begins. Raju (Govinda) and Urmila (Urmila Matondkar) are the strangers who meet in New Zealand and despite of small fights they fall in love with each other. They fall in love and still don’t know about each other’s family.
Raju has to return to India for some reason and there saves a pregnant woman, Sharmila (Nagma), from committing suicide. She tells all his story to Raju that she was committing suicide because her lover refuses to marry her whose child is in her womb. In Sharmila’s typical family, there is her angry grandfather Vishwanath Pratap Singh (Kader Khan) and a Hitler-type Thakur Balraj Pratab Singh (Om Puri). Raju makes a plan for Sharmila to save her life but he actually didn’t knew what he was doing. The plan actually was that Raju decided to go home with her as her husband and then he will run away from there and therefore Sharmila could lead her life with her child in her parents’ home. He didn’t knew it will ruin his life and destroy his love.
Everything was good so far, suddenly a twist in the story when Raju came to know that Urmila is also a part of that typical family and is a daughter of Thakur Balraj Pratab Singh (Om Puri) and younger sister of Sharmila (confusing, isn’t it?). Then, Urmila thinks that he really is his sister’s husband who was flirting her in New Zealand.
If you are having a bad time or want to have fun, then go watch Kunwara on the big screen. Otherwise, you won’t lost much skipping this one. So what’s good in Kunwara? Well, there’s Govinda as Raju who gaves his 100% performance with his hillarious comedy which makes the film watch able and there’s sexy Urmila Matondkar with tight tops, pants, and skirts of course. There are also Johnny Lever and Kader Khan in some few moments. What else one wants in a good entertaining movie?
There’s a no great songs in the movie except that title song. In a typical Govinda film, audiences want different songs with more masala than lyrics. Anu Malik could have done better than this like he did in Refugee, Josh and forthcoming Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega.
Kunwara will make you laugh and cry. But there’s always a happy ending in a David Dhawan type of film
