After getting into a violent confrontation, Shankar is arrested by the Police, tried in Court, sentenced to live outside the limits of the city, and must present himself at the nearest Police Station for the purpose of attendance. Shankar lives with a friend, Kadak, and one night comes across a woman in distress. He rescues her from some hoodlums, takes her home, and finds out that her name is Namkeen. Subsequently, he also finds out that she resembles a multi-millionaire Mohinidevi, who has gone missing. Shankar asks Namkeen to impersonate Mohinidevi, embezzle some of her wealth, so that the three can live a wealthy lifestyle.

Tadipaar is a good film!
19 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mahesh Bhatt's Tadipaar is a good film from 1993. An entertaining film from start to end, with superb songs, super performances & note-worthy direction.

Performance Wise: Mithun Chakraborty is fantastic, from scene A to Z. Pooja Bhatt looks beautiful and delivers a very good performance. Anupam Kher overacts. Vikram Gokale is impressive in a negative role. Gulshan Grover is decent. Avatar Gill is superb. Juhi Chawla looks pretty in a cameo appearance. Sadashiv Amarpurkar's ma-ha Rani act doesn't impress.

Tadipaar deserves a watch for the pluses mentioned above! Thumbs up!
