Storyline

Ashok R. Tilak lives in Dinkapur with his widowed mother, and a servant named Bahadur. He travels to another town on a business trip to buy several acres of grape-bearing trees, with Bahadur accompanying him. Although this is his first trip to this town, however, everyone appears to know him and Bahadur, including the Ticket Checker at the Railway Station, the taxi-driver, the Hotel Manager, local Police Inspector Sinha, a Jeweler named Chhedilal and his assistant Mansoor, and to top it all a woman named Sudha claims that she is his wife, and another woman named Tanu claims that she is his sister-in-law, while a third one named Alka claims that she is his mistress. All's not well for Bahadur either for he bears the brunt of this confusion when he finds out that he has a wife named Prema; a normally sane boss, who keeps on sniffing snuff and smoking alternatively, and who yells and slaps him frequently. After a nightmarish night, the hapless duo decide they have had enough and decide ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

This film was supposed to be remade by Rohit Shetty with Shahrukh Khan playing the part of Sanjeev Kumar, but Rohit Shetty had an incomplete script when he met SRK. This is the reason SRK chose the script of Chennai Express and they made that film. They have both publicly stated that they still have plans for a remake of Angoor. See more »

Ample Grapes Of Humour
9 May 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Gulzar's hilarious adaptation of Shakespeare's 'The Comedy of Errors' offers ample laugh out loud moment. Gulzar's poetic writing is loaded with humour and he gives this superb adaptation its own unique touch. He successfully avoids the usually melodrama (that flooded in most Bollywood films) and I liked that he doesn't waste too much time in needlessly elaborating the story. For example, the separation of the twins and how they were raised is told in a simple dialogue (which is adequate). Very quickly, after introducing the charming characters, Gulzar quickly moves to the double trouble confusion and he does it with wit, sarcasm and loads of comedy.

It's also well-made on the technical side. The cinematography is very good and the way the images of the actors are juxtaposed (to show the twins in one scene) is well conducted. There are a few songs but they are well utilized and the lyrics are magic (thanks to a great poet's touch).

Sanjeev Kumar and Deven Verma are turn on their comic flair to the maximum. Their abilities in comedy are very well known and this is a prototype in their careers. A lovely Moushumi Chatterjee, cute and vivacious Deepti Naval and funny Aruna Irani lend excellent comedic support.

Not only does 'Angoor' prove that Gulzar can tackle comedy with class but also that he is one of the most versatile directors today. This is one of India's finest adaptations of a Shakespeare work.
