Analysing Aishwarya

"Hum Kissise Kum Nahin" ... a laugh riot.  

When was the last time anyone saw Aishwarya Rai letting her hair down and making you laugh on screen? Try her out in this Friday's laugh-riot Hum Kissise Kum Nahin (HKKN) directed by masala-comedy' specialist David Dhawan. Ash finally gets to work in a purely situational comedy along with Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan. In HKKN, she is the sister of Amitabh, who plays a psychiatrist. Sanjay Dutt is an insecure Mumbai underworld don Munnabhai who comes to Amitabh for treatment and subsequently falls in love with Ash. But she has a lover, Ajay Devgan, and Sanjay Dutt wants to eliminate him!

Then the David Dhawan masala' starts boiling over. Amitabh for a change is not a strict father nor is he robbing a bank! He in a recent interview has said that he thoroughly enjoyed doing this cool comedy'. The trade is happy that David Dhawan, once considered the Midas of Bollywood, may churn out a bigger hit than last year's Jodi No:1.

HKKN is said to be a rip-off of Harold Ramis-directed Analyse This starring Robert De Niro as a crazy New York gangster getting in touch with a psychiatrist played by Billy Crystal. This amusing comedy was supposed to be a parody of The Godfather. Can Aishwarya, the current queen of hearts along with Dhawan and company, make the box-office smile?
