Storyline

Two unemployed slackers, Bhola and Ajay come across a newspaper advertisement about a missing elderly gentleman, whose estate is worth millions. They come across this male in the Hanging Garden Park in Bombay, and decide to make him their paternal uncle and take him to live with them in a rented apartment, which they cannot afford. This elderly man, Girdharilal takes an unusual interest in Ajay's girlfriend, Deepa. While Bhola and Ajay try to find ways and means of getting rich by turning Girdharilal in, a number of horrific homicides are committed, all against former business associates of Girdharilal, and the clues all point toward the hapless duo.

Great film-making
30 December 2006 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

This one is a real entertainer. This movie is genuinely funny and genuinely a mystery. Hrishkesh Mukherjee was a genuinely good director and story-teller; something which a lot of filmmakers seem to forget nowadays. You should also watch some of his other films: they are very different from each other and most are in the lower-budget range but with excellent results. Music and songs are also memorable.

Just adding the comment to Yellow_Spider that his comments for this film were being lifted "word-for word" by the presenter of "Bollywood Ke Sunehre Pal" of smashits.com. Watch the November 17th 2006 episode's introduction to Buddha Mil Gaya and the song "raat kali ikk khwab me ayee" Maybe you should be acting as their writer.
