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 film is evenly paced throughout, though it turns out to be a Dharmendra show! Prominent among the hilarious scenes are, when Dharmendra, as a chauffeur, seeks clarification from Om Prakash as to why 'go', 'so' are pronounced in the same way and why not 'to', and the other is that Amitabh Bachchan (English Professor) is shown memorising some aspects of Botany using a college botany textbook under dim-lit table-lamp, because he has to take 'botany tuitions' for his sweetheart (Jaya Bhaduri)! Gulzar's screenplay and dialogues take the cake in this film! A must-have among the VCD collection! 'Chupke-Chupke Chal Ree Purvaiya' is the pick of songs of this film, which too are melodious.
