Director: David Dhawan,
Producers: K. Sera Sera and Sohail Khan,
Music Director: Sajid-Wajid
Lyrics: Sanjay Chhel, Shabbir Ahmed and Jalees Sherwani
Starring: Salman Khan, Govinda, Katrina Kaif, Lara Dutta
Prem (Salman Khan) comes across Bhaskar Diwakar Chaudhury (Govinda) who is in love with Priya (Katrina Kaif) the rich daughter of a millionaire business tycoon Raichand (Dalip Tahill). Though reluctant at first, how Bhaskar wins over Prem’s heart so that Prem can help him win over Priya’s heart is the rest of the movie. Yes there are some misunderstandings which are resolved rather quick, as well as an unfinished and unneeded track of an underworld don called Chhota Don (Rajpal Yadav) who seems inspired by both Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Though the basic premise of the movie is the same as well as a number of sequences which have been lifted directly, Sanjay Chhel’s screenplay does give the it’s own look and feel which in turn makes PARTNER it’s own unique movie.

The performances in the movie are absolutely entertaining to the maximum. Salman Khan is very natural in his performance which personifies and cements Salman Khan’s star status. He looks lively and better than some of his just released movies, and performs his comic scenes with ease. Certain scenes in the movie which only he could’ve pulled off. He has done well in moments with the kid and even excelled in his dance.
Govinda really needed a movie like this and yes, he has erased negative memories of the frequent failures of his movies lately. There is a certain magic that Govinda creates when he is in form in a comedy film. It seems the role is tailor-made for him and gives him the chance to to weave the magic on-screen that only he can.
Its Govinda all the way with his absolutely blistering blast of energy, impeccable and flawless comic timing, unbeatable dialogue delivery and masala-filled dance steps which bring smiles, laughter to the viewer till the very end.
