Storyline

Homi Mistry (Ashok Kumar) has been a widower for several years now, and looks after his four sons, their small house, and a job at the factory. Nargis Sethna has been widowed; is a housewife, has two sons and a daughter, and a large house. Then Soli (David), Nargis' and Homi's friend, suggests that the two get married, then at least the children will have a mother and father, as well as a larger house. They do get married, and hilarious chaos results, as the family and the children try to accomodate each other and fit in with their new family and surroundings.

Hatta Meetha
21 March 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

You can simply say its just another flick with humor and it actually suggests you to do so but you cant rate it as an average film. why? because of its simplicity it touches you. There are no melodramatic scenes characters are near to reality one can connect with the theme and watching Late Mr. Ashok Kumar is a treat. Mr Deven Verna's performance attracts.His song Mummi O Mummi tu kab saas banegi is very good. another song from Thoda hai Thode ki zaroorat hai by Late Mr Kishor Kumar is good to listen. Film is based on Indian Parsi families and shows there life style in brief. Rakesh Roshan and Bindiya Goswami is OK. I gave 8 ranking for it. If you are interested in light comedy it is for you Go & Watch!!
