Ghosts and ghouls, dead and alive!, 9 September 2007
Author: HeadleyLamarr from United States

A cute film about a simple village school teacher Sundar (Shahrukh Khan) who is duped by his friend and robbed of all his belongings in Mumbai. He ends up in a graveyard and causes the "resurrection" of a ghost Marco (Naseeruddin Shah). Marco, a die hard criminal, was killed by his henchman Kunta (Tinnu Anand) the day after his wedding as he wished to renounce his bad ways and return the spoils of his crimes. Now Sundar is Marco's connection to the real world and his only way to redemption and eventual release. Along the way Sundar falls in love with Mala (Urmila Matondkar) and helps her and her grandfather (Shammi Kapoor) save their college from Kunta's greed. Who is Mala? Will Marco get his revenge? Watch Chamatkar to find out.

The story is simple and familiar with some new twists added in. The young couple are super cute - Shahrukh looks and lives the simple good soul Sundar, Naseer is amazing as ever, Urmila is vivacious. Ashutosh Gowarikar has a meaty role as one of the bad guys. Shammi Kapoor is immense but still entertaining. The film has some good songs - my favorite was Is Pyar Se Meri Taraf Na Dekho, Pyar Ho Jaayega - funny and melodious. The only thing that prevents me from rating this film better is the atrocious fashion show song and dance spectacle. Other than that this is a sweet, simple entertainer with a lesson. It is possible to redeem yourself and simple goodness can make good things happen.
