Trivia

'Rishi Kapoor (I)' breaks the fourth wall, that is he speaks directly to the audience. While discussing the film industry, Rishi looks into the camera and says he doesn't watch Hindi films because they are all copies of English films. Rafoo Chakkar takes the majority of it's plot from the American comedy Some Like It Hot (1959), which itself was inspired by earlier French and German films. See more »

Funny movie
13 May 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In the year 1975 Rishi and Neetu starred in 2 films Khel Khel Mein and Rafoo Chakkar both were like from similar genre. Rafoo Chakkar pushed the envelope showing same sex love, the disguise part was later carried on in Khiladi(1992) and other films. The film may not have a novel plot and is a remake of Some Like It Hot but the way it's handled is superb. The comedy scenes,confusion is really superb and hilarious,the romance is cute,the film being in 1970s also does have it's nonsense and long lost formula

Direction is great Music is decent

Rishi Kapoor plays to the gallery and is likable throughout like always,Paintal compliments him brilliantly, In 2008 both their sons played friends in Bachna Ae Haseeno. Neetu Singh is good in her part, Rajindra Nath brings the house down with his witty act,Asrani is simply brilliant and makes you laugh, he even won the award for best comedian.Madan Puri is good as usual Sulochana,Viju Khote and others are good too
