Storyline

Ramprasad is a recent college graduate who finds a job with a finicky man, Bhavani Shankar, who believes that a man without a mustache is a man without a character. Bhavani Shankar is also against any of his employees indulging in recreation of any kind. When Ramprasad is caught by his boss at a soccer match, he has to invent a twin brother, the clean-shaven Laxman Prasad, to save his job. When Bhavani's daughter falls in love with the clean-shaven Laxman Prasad, and insists on marrying him, and Bhavani insists she should marry Ramprasad, things take a whacky turn. A fake mother and a hilarious chase are other enjoyable features involved in this comedy. Written by Vijay

A movie that you can see infinite number of times.
6 January 2003 | by (College Park, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best movies that Hrishikesh Mukherjee gave. A must see for everybody. I don't have words to express how much I like this movie. And I am yet to meet a person who did not like it. Too good.
