Storyline

Abhyankar (Amrish Puri) is an orthodox head of his family, a retired police officer, he has values which he wants his family to also uphold. As a result of his values, his daughter is unable to be forthright and is unable to introduce the young man (Anil Kapoor) she loves, and concocts a scheme whereby her father would approve of her lover. What results is quite hilarious. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Classic Clean Comedy
17 October 2016 | by zaynsmithSee all my reviews

This is one of those clean comedy movies which you can enjoy with your whole family. It may not be a laugh riot but it will definitely leave you with a sweet taste in your mouth. Anil Kapoor does complete justice to his role as well as the other actors but Amrish Puri outshone everyone. The only annoying actor was Sajid Khan. The direction was brilliant but the cinematography was awful. But if you want to have a fun movie which you can watch with your whole family then this is the one. Also when i was a little boy I used to go to town with my mom. One day during my birthday i stayed home and my mom she would go and get the cake. So i waited and waited. I could not hold on much more and so i went to look for her. I got lost. And this old man took me to this place where there were lots of other children. But they were disabled in some way.
