Storyline

MR. BECHERA (Anil Kapoor) is a shy printer and, since the passing of his wife, a single father to his infant son--but his quiet life is shattered by the schemes of Dr. Dayanand (the one-and-only Anupam Kher), a medical man with techniques so unorthodox they border on complete lunacy. Dr. Dayanand has a beautiful amnesiac patient named "Asha" (Sridevi), and he wants Bechera to pretend to be her husband and the father of her child. The two couldn't be more mismatched, yet as time passes, they begin to rely on each other. The lies of the doctor, however, begin spiraling out of control, with both humorous and poignant results.

The cutest baby in the whole film industry!

Mr Bechara was not a hit, which is the most surprising element first of all. But compared to films such as Army, it was of a much stronger compared to other Sridevi movies of the same year such as Army.

Firstly this is a story of how one man, looses his wife and gains another by no choice of his own. But the woman he gains thinks she was the original wife, and she does not know that she had an accident and has lost her memorey.

Anupham Kher is vitally funny through the whole film. Nagrujana does not get much of a role. Sridvei looks good in the film, apart from the end when she is in her wedding dress! Oh god! make sure u have your sunglasses for that.

From the original soundtrack of the film, one song was not included that being Dehkoh Dehkoh bara bajhee.

Best quote of the whole film is when Sridevi gets a slap on the face from Anil Kapoor, and she replies, "You have started hitting me, wait till you get home I will also start hitting you."

But the star of the film is the cute baby, and Sridevi really shows her love for the child for him as if it was her own Jhanvi!

The film is a must see for all Sridevi fans, Anil Kapoor again pairs of well with Sridevi. This film must been seen on good quality and not bad print or you will not enjoy this film at all. I give this film 8.5 out of 10. Shame it was not a hit!
