Storyline

Jeetu and Dolly are in love and would like to get married. After seeking Dolly's dad's blessings, they do get married and move in together. They live harmoniously for quite some time, until misunderstandings occur, minor molehills soon become mountains, and they threaten to separate from each other. That done, each goes to their respective lawyers to negotiate a divorce. When Dolly's dad finds out about this, he decides to pay them a visit. Alarmed that he will disapprove of their move to separate, both pretend to live together and show him that they are still in love. But truth has the nasty habit of showing up uninvited, and it will not be long before acrimony breaks out in his presence. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Very enjoyable family comedy about a newly married couple
26 February 2002 | by (St Louis, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is another masterpiece from Basu Chatterjee. This movie is a must see for those who have forgotten how good and clean humor can be in Indian cinema. The story is woven around the life of a newly married couple played by Jitendra and Neetu Singh. Utpal Dutt as Neetu Singh's father is as usual at his best while Rakesh Roshan plays a very good supporting role. The married life begins very happily but trouble comes along when minor misunderstandings escalate into major differences between husband and wife. The genius of Basu Chatterjee is visible from the subtle everyday situations he has been able to bring under the camera allowing the audience to easily identify with the characters and situations in the movie. A must see for all lovers of healthy Indian comedy along the lines of Choti Si Baat, Golmaal, Damaad, etc.
