Regardless of whether he is playing a nerd or a gangster, he is completely charming and conveys exactly what his dad orders him to.
The script of this movie is a mix of similar jokes acquired from Manmohan Desai films. The sidekick stammers, the hero repeats lines from different masala films, the villain gets blankness when hit by a coconut, a football butt enables his memory to return, and so on.
