Amitabh Bachchan was offered to play the role of Mr India but he declined as he was into politics and was not doing many movies. Shekar Kapur wanted Anupam Kher to play the role of Mogambo but then switched to Amrish Puri as he wanted someone who looked scary. See more »
There is a continuity error while is talking with Anil Kapoor on the sea beach (time approx 1h38m02s). You will see that Sridevi is wearing a rectangular yellow-white earring. In the next shoot the earring is replaced by a circular yellow earring. See more »
As a wise young fellow mentioned, what makes this movie so watchable today is that it has soul. Watching it after 15 years, it brings back a lot of childhood memories. The movie is just full of entertainment and does not look outdated at all. Shekar Kapur's direction is fantastic. Because of his direction, the movie moves on a constant pace and the scenes aren't overdone in a silly way. Sridevi's performance is, as always, top-notch. Anil Kapoor is very likable. The kids are good too (but annoying in the songs and dances). The songs are funny and catchy giving us Sridevi's memorable Hawa Hawai and the sensual sari dance in Kaate nahi. Of course, who could forget one of Amrish Puri's most memorable roles as Mogambo? In my humble opinion this is definitely one of the most entertaining movies that I could watch over and over again with friends or family. If you want to be entertained and have a good time, watch Mr. India.
