Where did you watch this movie?

This movie begins in a hospital in India where Sridevi and Govinda are switched at birth. Kader Khan, Sridevi's dad, steals Govinda from the nursery after finding out that his wife gave birth to a girl. He leaves the girl in the arms of the bewildered mother who passes away from a heart attack after discovering that someone stole her baby. As the tragedy unfolds throughout the movie, Govinda and Sridevi eventually find who out their biological parents really are. Both actors meet in a financial scandal and fall in love, but Sridevi resists. Sridevi commits insurance fraud by intentionally walking in front of Govinda's vehicle. She is compensated accordingly, but not before stealing his father Kader Khan's watch. Though the events in the movie are tragic, they are portrayed in a comedic way. This is supported by Sridevi pretending to be a courtesan minutes after the incident.
