Storyline

Charandas lives a poor lifestyle in a small town in India along with his older brother, Bhajandas, and Bhabhi. He is unemployed and commits himself to be a wrestler with Ustad Mastram Pahelwan, who gets him to promise to be celibate until he is 40 years of age. But when Charandas meets with a school student, Chameli, the daughter of a low-caste Coal merchant, both fall head-over-heels in love with each other, go on dates, exchange love letters, much to the chagrin of Chameli's dad, Kallumal, who has plans to be the next Municipal Chairman, and mom, Champa, who decide to enlist the help of Champa's brother, Chaganlal, as well as arrange Chameli's marriage with Advocate Makhan, the son of Lachuram, who is of their caste. As events hilarious spiral out of control, Charandas must now decide whether he prefers to be known as the semi-senile lover, Majnu, or as Prithviraj Chauhan, who dared to abduct his future wife, amidst stiff all-round opposition.

very good clean comedy movie

This is a very good comedy movie, which will make you laugh while watching and make you smile after movie is finished. At that time such movies were very rarely made in Bollywood. Hats of to the director Basu Chatterji.

Storyline is very simple. In a small suburban area, lives Chameli(Amrita Singh) and Charandas(Anil Kapoor). Both fall in love. But their parents are against their marriage. Charandas finally with the help of Vakeel Bhaiya(Amzad Khan) make a lot of struggle and marry with the Chameli. Vakeel takes care of changing the opinions of their parents.

Music is not very good and not bad at the same time. The song "Mohabbat Ke Dushman Jara Hosh Me Aa" certainly makes an impact.

Director must be given credits for how he plotted this simple story. Starting from the Charandas becoming Chela of his Guru, he fall in love with the Chameli, their flirting with each other, letter exchanges, Chameli's parents locking her in the room, Charandas asking help from Vakeel all these scenes follow a very good time line. Each character has given some uniqueness and then actors have done justice with these characters. Even small characters like of Mamu(Anu Kapoor) and Master(OM Prakash) makes an impact. Amrita Singh fits equally good as an old school student, so Anil Kapoor, as a bachelor, who fall in love unexpectedly. Special hats to Pankaj Kapoor as in Kalluram. All others are fitted well in the story, and done their part as expected. This movie is a really good and can be kept in a collection.
