I LOVED this movie! I have just recently discovered Bollywood films and this one was on TV recently. It was much funnier than Mrs. Doubtfire with less goofiness and none of that hit-you-over-the head type of audience pandering. Even as a Black girl sitting at home I was able to understand and laugh at 100% of this movie. It's not often that I have the patience to sit and watch a movie that runs for 3+ hours but the complexities and hilarity were so well blended that I felt myself drawn to the screen. Not only did it have my rapt attention but I had to READ the entire thing so you know it's good when... Someone commented that they bought it on DVD and now that I know it's available I will do the same!
Chachi 420 is very funny film. I laughed the whole way through. Kamal
has directed a really good movie and should direct even more films and his
acting was superb! Tabu proved yet again what a great actress she
The storyline is the same as the original Hollywood version and Chachi 420 is slightly better than Mrs Doubtfire!
For people who love comedy they have got to see this film! It deserves a 9.5/10!
I first caught this at the Eros Cinema in Bombay. Even without English subtitles this non-Hindi speaker thoroughly enjoyed it. Recently I found this on DVD with the subtitle option and liked it all the more. Much funnier than the original "Mrs. Doubtfire", not nearly so cloying. I first knew Kamal Hassan (writer, director, lead actor) from a Tmail gangster film, "Narayan". That he is so funny, and subtle even in a larger-than-life role, was a great surprise. Don't miss this if you ever get the opportunity. The fight scene in he baazar is an instsant classic!
I saw this film for a comedy class and throughly enjoyed it. It is the only Hindi movie I have ever seen, and it was excellent. It is somewhat similar to the movie, Mrs. Doubtfire, however, there are many style and plot differences. It is funnier than the original without losing the touching family side of the story. It centers around a man, a film choreographer, who loses his daughter when he and his wife get a divorce. She moves back home and he eventually sees an ad to be his daughter's caretaker. He ends up enchanting the family with his super "woman" feats. He also catches the affections of the father of the ex-wife. Very long, but the movie is great from beginning to end. 9 out of 10
Kamal Hassan one of the most talented actors we have This is one of his
most remembered films after EK DUJJE KE LIYE(1981)
The film was also directed by him and the film is a good movie to watch In fact Kamal Hassan looked so perfect as a women that he was unrecognisable
The film starts off well but actually kick starts when kamal becomes a women the film has several hilarious scenes like the entire revelation of the servant, Om Puri's lines The escapades by kamal Hassan and the confusion
Till the climax the film keeps you entertained
Direction by kamal Hassan is very good Music is good
Kamal Hassan is flawless in his role as a women and even as a lover the role got him immense popularity Tabu too does well Amrish Puri is superb always in deadpan humour and he rocks here as well Om Puri too is hilarious in a comic role Johny Walker is good Ayesha Jhukla is okay Paresh Rawal lends some funny moments
Kamal Hasan remakes Mrs Doubtfire and gives an inspired performance as
Mrs Luxmi Godbole, a god-fearing Maharashtrian matriarch. 'Chachi 420'
itself is a bit of a mess. The film is overlong with messy subplots and
Tabu is strangely lackluster. Yet Kamal Hasan makes it worthwhile with
his superb comic timing. It does get overindulgent at times with some
unnecessary songs. Amrish Puri is good as usual. Om Puri has a brief
but funny cameo. There are some risqué scenes involving Nasser, so
family audiences beware. Still, the film is well worth watching on
television or DVD.
