Bhagam Bhag: A Comedy

In the last 2-3 months, we have seen some successful movies in Bollywood. Don, Dhoom 2 had huge success in the box office. Well, we now have a serious movie like Kabul Express. What many of us would want to see was a comedy. Who can be better than Govinda when it comes to comedy? So, Bhagam Bhag has perhaps come at the right time- after all the action, fighting, romance.

About the story of the movie, I am quoting here from Wikipedia:

Champak Chaturved (Paresh Rawal) has a theatre group in India and he performs shows all over the country. Bunty (Akshay Kumar) and Babla (Govinda) along with others are actors in the group. Both are very naughty natured guys who never miss any chance to flirt with girls, even the girls in the group. At the completion of one show, an organizer offers Champak's group to perform 30 shows in England. They all get very excited but as per the contract they need to leave for England on the same day. Unfortunately the heroine of the play opts out due to Bunty's misbehavior.

They reach London and through Gullu (Rajpal Yadav), a taxi driver, Babla and Bunty try to find a girl for their play but it leads to many misunderstandings and a series of funny sequences. In this process, Babla and Bunty fall into trouble involving a drug baron and other mishaps.

Thereafter, the trio discovers a girl Minni (Lara Dutta), who suffers from amnesia to act in their drama and just as Bunty and Minni fall in love, her memory returns and it brings chaos into their lives, including a murdered husband!

From here the story leads to its climax in which a major conspiracy gets exposed.

The story seems funny enough to me. I just wish that Govinda and Akshay Kumar can make it successful. A lot depends on how they perform in this movie. So, find out, you have to wait for a few days.
