Storyline

Sunder Srivastava (Shahrukh Khan) is a young graduate whose main ambition in life is to fulfill his father's dream of starting a school on his half-acre property in his village, though he has no funds to execute his plans. Sunder's childhood friend Prem, a seasoned conman who operates in Bombay, convinces the gullible Sunder to mortgage his land to the village Zamindar (landlord) and fly to Dubai. Prem promises Sunder a handsomely paying teacher's job in Dubai that would give Sunder enough money to start his school within two years. Sunder does as told and arrives in Bombay to meet Prem; not only is there no sign of his friend at the station, but Sunder also gets unwittingly involved with a petty thief who robs him of all his luggage and money. To make matters worse, when Sunder reaches Prem's lodge, he finds an apologetic letter from Prem informing him that he has used his Rs.10,000 to get himself to Dubai instead and will one day repay him. Now at the end of his tether, Sunder ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

A Fantastic Funny Ghost Story
17 August 2009 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

'Chamatkar' is a charming and delightful fantasy comedy. It tells the story of a ghost who has some unfinished business that he must fulfil with the help of a noble young teacher. It's his only chance to redeem himself of his past sins, to mend his relationship with his estranged daughter and father-in-law. The story isn't derived from a novel concept but 'Chamatkar' is treated with sincerity. Some may argue that the movie has a dated feel but for me it was fun to watch how people used to dress during the early 90s in India. I liked most of the songs but the fashion show sequence was unintentionally funny, especially how the backup dancers performed and the way they dressed. Naseeruddin Shah is fantastic as Marco the ghost. Who says this man can't do comedy? The same question can be asked about Shahrukh Khan and Urmila Matondkar. It was really great to see these three actors, whose comedic flair is underrated, work together and make something so funny. Khan is stupendous as the good hearted but gullible school teacher and Matondkar is adorable and vivacious as Marco's daughter and Sunder's girlfriend. They make quite a cute pair and I wonder why these two highly talented actors have never worked together again. Of the supporting cast, Shammi Kapoor stands out. 'Chamatkar' doesn't have the highly advanced special effects and style that could perhaps make it more visually appealing but that didn't bother me because there was plenty of other things that was enough to enjoy this movie.
