Storyline

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...".

A botanical farce!
28 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The wikipedia defines FARCE thus: A farce is a comedy written for the stage or film which aims to entertain the audience by means of unlikely, extravagant and improbable situations, disguise and mistaken identity, verbal humor of varying degrees of sophistication, which may include sexual innuendo and word play, and a fast-paced plot whose speed usually increases, culminating in an ending which often involves an elaborate chase scene.

Was it Hrishi Da's intention to create a farce in Chupke Chupke? The situation was unlikely, the set-up improbable, there was mistaken identity, lots of verbal humor in many different languages, there was sexual innuendo and some quite explicit goings on for a Hrishikesh film. In fact except for the chase seen all other elements were in place.

A few things that I found particularly hilarious: 1. The fixation on the Jeeja Saali relationship.

2. The hilarious use of Botany - and particularly Corolla! LOL! Jaya wanted the Botany Prof to teach her about the corolla, and it took him all night to study that up! And everyone would walk about with a flower in their hand.

3. The students who were most fascinated by corollas and by the handsome professor were ALL women. Was this Hrishi Da's wink wink nudge nudge at Botany being a pursuit for women? In fact a classy British store has a women's cardigan line called BOTANY! 4. Dharm was simply awesome. "Main jab ghabra jaata hoon to haklaata hoon, aur haklaata hoon to Urdu bolne lagta hoon!' His comic timing was perfect.

5. Amitabh was excellent too - his over-hyped nervous impersonator who studies up corollas all night and then starts off in a booming Shakespearean mode "There are ten types of.." only to be cut off by Jaya as she tell him she studied that part already! The film ended on a slightly unsatisfactory note but I don't know how else it could have culminated. All in all I gave it a 8/10, a lot of laughs and fine acting by the lead due. The ladies did very well too.
