Raghav brags that he can smell a rat or an impersonator automatically, and Dr. Parimal Tripathi decides to take him on - result: funny family slapstick comedy, with a dose of pure Hindi and Urdu thrown in, especially the dialogue delivery by Om Prakash, Dharmendra, and Amitabh Bachchan. Notable songs are :Sare ga ma, ma sa re ga ma...."; "Ab ke sajan sawan me, aag lagegi badan mein, ghata barshegi, magar tarsegi nazar, mil na sakenghe do mahn ek hi aagan mein..."; "Chupke chupke chal di purvaiya, basuri bajaike raas rachaye daiya re daiya, chupke...".

This is vintage Hrishikesh Mukherjee for you. His forte is light comedies which can be watched with your entire family right from great-grand-father to great-grand-kid. And this one in particular is very funny. Amitabh and Dharmendra team up together once again after sholay(the biggest indian hit) to deliver another sterling performance as a team well supported by sharmila, jaya and ashok kumar. Film is too slow in first half at times but more than makes up for it in the second. Music is kind of disappointing though. But a good story, good dialogues (a little too incolloquial hindi though) and very good performance by the entire cast makes it a movie worth watching with family.
