After many flops and bad movies Salman Khan came back into track with Partner. In 2007 Partner is the Bollywood first super hit. This movie got good collections in U.S.A and U.K also. This movie’s director David Dhawan was inspired by Will Smith‘s Hollywood film Hitch.
He copied the concept as well as scenes too. He just changed them into Bollywood style. The story is about a Love Guru Prem (Salman Khan) whose profession is giving suggestions to lovers.
One day Bhaskar (Govinda) meets him to solve his love problem. Prem refuses to help him and flies to Thailand.
After returning back to India he falls for Naina (Lara Dutta). He agrees to help Bhaskhar. Bhaskar’s lover Priya (Katrina Kaif) is a wealthy girl. These people convince her. Because of an idiot guy Prem faces some troubles and loses Naina’s love. Later all the people realise about the truth.
In Hitch movie actually Aishwarya Rai had to pair opposite Will Smith but she rejected due to date problems. Sajid-Wajid is also one of the main reason for Partner‘s success. Rajpal Yadav‘s mimcry as Shah Rukh Khan in Don got a very good response.
Compared with Hitch, Partner received some excellent collections and huge response.
