The unstoppable Raja - Dulhe Raja

There will be a rare Govinda sighting this Friday in Raavan, so it is time to remember his films and songs in GOVINDAWEEK!!

Govinda plays Raja, a smart aleck who has a street-side eatery - but it is a huge problem for Kader Khan as the street is a road inside his huge hotel! The eatery is popular with the hotel guests and an eyesore for the hotel owner. Many attempts are made to oust Raja and his eatery but Raja always triumphs and seems unstoppable. Kader Khan has a beautiful daughter Raveena Tandon who has fallen for the scumbag Mohnish Behl and wants to trick her Dad into letting her marry him.

Many twists and turns ensue, and lots of slapstick moments later the Dulha (bridegroom) does get his Dulhan (bride)! The funny moments are somehow less funny than the usual Govinda film. The outstanding sequence is a music and dance showdown between Kader Khan and Govinda - who knew the old man could shake and gyrate with the best of them!
