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...".

Chupke Chupke is masterpiece by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, I love his style of story telling be it Bawarchi, Rang Birangi, Naram Garam, Golmaal, Khubsoorat, Buddha Mil Gaya, all of which are great movies. All his stories have very simple storyline, powerful cast, lots of human emotion and patriotism towards Indian culture and languages.
Dharmendra is truly amazing, and so is Amitabh Bachchan and rest of the cast supports them well. Since most of the dialogs are in pure Hindi, some people may find it difficult to follow. Hrishikesh Mukherjee through his movies and characters always pointed to some aspect or the other of the lives of Indian people, and hence all his characters always feel very real and get deep inside your skin and you become a part of the act.
The practical joke played by a Botany professor on his brother-in-law is the focus of the movie, as pointed out by other commenter. Chupke Chupke is a film in which the dialogs combine with the situations to collectively impart the comic momentum to the movie which persist till the very last minute, very very entertaining film, highly recommended for the entire family. If you liked this movie, then do give the movies mentioned at the beginning a shot, you would thank me later. :) also highly recommended.
