Storyline

Siddhant Rai is a single father, looking after three young children. All four of them live a wealthy and comfortable lifestyle, which changes suddenly when Siddhant passes away after a car accident. Siddhant's shady relatives hire a former jailbird and con-man by the name of Shekar to pose as their paternal uncle, Raju, which he does for a hefty sum of money. When Raju is introduced to the children, he is an instant hit with them, as well as their Catholic governess, Anna. Then the Rai family are stunned when another young man enters their lives - claiming to be the real Raju Chacha. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

This movie is a bakwaas Trash.
8 January 2001 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

This is the most corrupt copy of Hollywood Classic " The Sound Of The Music." Ajay Devgan is totally wasted in the role. The kids are annoying and look like artificial flowers made to look natural. Watching Rishi Kapoor proves to be a painful experience. kajol tries to save the movie but she can only be as good as a married Bollywood heroine is allowed in a movie ghost directed and acted in by her "Husband". AVOID IT. Watch the original "The Sound Of Music" instead.
