Storyline

Choudhry, Jagdishbhai, and Inder Sen are old friends in their early sixties, but believe they are in still in their forties. While Choudhry lives with his wife, Sita, Inder is widowed, and Jagdish is divorced. Their weakness is smoking, alcohol, and women. While they are able to satisfy they need for the first two vices, they are unable to openly indulge with women to their hearts' content while in Bombay. When Sita decides to take a religious pilgrimage, the three decide to travel out of town, and have fun with women. They hire a car driver named Sakharam, who takes them to Goa, and once there, he drives them to a night-club, which has a dancer and singer named Anita. All three friends find Anita gorgeous, and would love to be intimate with her. They plan to individually spend time with her, but Murphy's law prevails with hilarious results.

A Masterpiece from the early 80's...
4 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Basu Chatterjee's 'Shaukeen' is one of my all-time favorite films. This delightful comedy is a classic that never gets boring, it's evergreen work.

A K Hangal, Utpal Dutt & Ashok Kumar deliver outstanding performances. Hangal with his English accent is funny, Dutt is excellent, as ever. Kumar is superb, right from the very beginning. Rati as the babe, is terrific. Mithunda is lovable as the 3-oldies's driver. This film has Indian Cinema finest bunch of actors of it's time.

'Shaukeen' is not to be missed, a must see for everyone. Two Big Thumbs Up!
