Munna is very naughty in this movie . . :)
20 December 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Every body who has seen any comedy movie of Kishore Kumar would like it and this movie arguably tops all the other movies in a sense that KK is pretending to be grown up with a kids brain (Munna) in this movie and still flirting successfully with the beauty queen Madhubala. The theme itself is worth a pot of gold besides all the songs in this movie are funny and Hit. Watch it, you won't regret it though the climax was grossly messed up.
