Storyline

Anju and Manju, identical twins separated at birth. Born to a rich father who is paralyzed, they are brought up in totally contrasting environments. Anju is brought up in her father's house, bullied by her stepmother and her brother. She is constantly terrorized by them and often ends up in tears. Manju is a street smart girl, dancing in a hotel and ready to take on the world. They accidentally exchange places; Anju lands up in Manju's house and Manju in her father's palatial house. She takes up cudgels on behalf of the down trodden and soon discovers that she has a twin. She soon turns tables on Hattangadi and Kher. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

15 December 2009 | by (delhi) – See all my reviews

Chaalbaaz was one of the best comedies of the late 80s with some landmark performances from Sridevi in a double role , Anupam Kher as the evil uncle Tribhuvan Das , Shakti Kapoor ,Rohini Hattangadi and Rajnikant.The movie also has Annu Kapoor in a special role and a young Aftab Shivdasani as Sridevis young brother.It also won Sridevi a Best Actress Award for 1989.The " Jaani ye Chaaku hai" scene is legendary and unforgettable.A typical bollywood formula film with Twin Sisters separated at birth and with strikingly different personalities .Sridevi was the real " Hero" of the film .I remember I had copied it on my VCR as a kid and used to watch it everyday ! A most memorable film .
