If memories of David Dhawan's previous flick still haunt you and you are worried about witnessing some cheap brand of humour again, then dispel the thought! Surprisingly, 'Mujhse Shaadi Karogi' has no cheap stuff at all! It is a wholesome entertainer that will have the audience laughing uncontrollably in most parts. Besides a truly funny story line and screenplay, what goes in the favour of the film is the casting, particularly Salman Khan (Samir) and Akshay Kumar (Sunny). Their chemistry is amazing and it works like dynamite. If Salman charms the audience right from the first frame then the film is elevated with Akshay's entry into the frame. Who steals the show? To be fair to both, each has done justice to his role but Akshay might score a few extra points. While Salman is a sober guy who means no harm to anyone, Akshay is wicked. His character will go down well with teenagers as well as guys. They will easily relate to him.

Now for the story. Samir falls head over heels in love with Rani (Priyanka Chopra), a budding fashion designer. But surprisingly she is more into exercising and striking poses in her balcony or terrace. Anyway, coming back to the Samir-Rani romance, Samir faces rough weather right from day one. Every time he tries to do something, things go wrong for him and he ends up inviting Rani and her father's wrath. Aiding him at every step is his astrologer friend (Rajpal Yadav). To make matters worse, Sunny (Akshay Kumar) walks into his life. Sunny leaves no stone unturned to woo Rani, and manages to woo not just her but her father (Amrish Puri) too. Samir and Sunny's interactions with Amrish Puri are hilarious. Sunny cuts Samir at every step and makes life miserable for him. Things come to a point where Rani starts hating Samir and never wants to meet him ever again. It is a game of one-upmanship like one of David's earlier films, 'Deewana Mastana'. So who finally gets her? For that you have to watch the film, and believe me, it is really worth it. At one point after the interval, the film tends to slacken a bit but is revved up with a climax shot on a cricket ground. Cricket fans will be delighted to watch some of their favourites on the big screen. Navjot Singh Sidhu's expert comments in English will have the cinema halls ringing with laughter.
