Storyline

Widower Amar is well-off financially, and lives in a house with his daughter, and servant Dayal. His sister and brother-in-law want him to marry again, so that his daughter can have the love and care of a woman. Amar reluctantly agrees. Together they set out to check out two sisters, Shobha, and Sheela. Amar goes as Dayal, and Dayal goes as Amar, as Amar is not sure if a step-mother will be able to bestow care and love as a real mother. They arrive at the household of Durga, Shanti Swarup, Renu, Sheela, and their servant Geeta. They begin to settle down, Dayal in a spacious room, and Amar in the servant's quarters, which consists of an untidy room with no electricity. It is not long before Amar finds out that he is attracted to Geeta, and not to the two sisters, but in his present state, he cannot reveal himself, and openly propose marriage. In the meantime, Durga starts getting suspicious about Amar, and starts wondering if Amar is actually a servant or a crook. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A witless comedy
5 March 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to watching Nauker. I thought it would be a great and entertaining movie. Well, after all, what else can you expect when you are going to see a film starring Sanjeev Kumar, Jaya Bhaduri, Mehmood and Lalita Pawar? But it was a serious disappointment. I would not go to the extent of saying it was unwatchable, but throughout the film I waited and waited for some turn in the story or something more interesting, but it just remained in the same state, needless to say that I indeed found myself fast forwarding many sequences. The story is quite unimpressive - a widowed man wants to marry some young girl who would be a perfect mother to his little daughter, and in an attempt to do that, pretends to be a servant while having his own servant taking his place. Well, nothing quite worked there. The film is supposed to be a comedy, but it actually lacks humour, charm and wit. The direction is not very good: at times the film has a messy feel to it, at times it is overly melodramatic. On the plus side, I would say the film is mainly watchable for the actors and for RD Bruman's music. Sanjeev Kumar plays a role which does not do justice to his talent. Jaya Bhaduri is the film's saving grace, acting as naturally as ever, but still the role is nothing special to talk about. Lalita Pawar is amazing and hilarious as always in her role of a typical and loud Indian mother. She acts and mouths her lines so effortlessly that you can't but appreciate it. Other actors, including Mehmood and Manmohan Krishna, lend adequate support. Nauker is an ordinary fare from the late 1970s. Watch it with your family, but only if you have absolutely nothing else to do.
