Director David Dhawan has a knack for making successful comedies and he is back with another laugh riot called Partner, starring Salman Khan and Govinda.
The two actors team up for the first time in the film releasing Friday. The movie also has Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif who play partners to Salman and Govinda respectively.
The story is simple but with Salman playing the 'love guru' giving tips to Govinda, it can be an interesting watch. While former plays a super cool stud, the latter will be seen as a simpleton.
The film revolves around Salman who is a love guru and earns his livelihood by helping men woo the women of their dreams. His tips always work because the way he understands a woman's likes and dislikes, nobody else does.
The real fun begins when Salman meets Govinda and takes him under his wing and starts giving him training to impress Katrina, the rich and famous daughter of an industrialist.
After going through many hurdles in a comic series, Govinda finally wins Katrina's love.
So far so good. But there is a twist in the tale - Salman faces a real challenge in the form of Lara Dutta, the one woman he truly loves. She works for a newspaper as a journalist and none of his tricks work on her.
The film's USP is the Govinda and Salman team. They are coming together for the first time and trade pundits say they will crackle on screen.
Dhawan's Shaadi No 1 was a moderate success, so he has put his heart and soul into making it a box office success.
