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)

Good For Children's
16 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Okay, this movie is not that bad. its a good kids movie in bollywood and it entertain children's a lot. i remember when i was 13 and i used to love this movie and i wanted to buy the original DVD but my dad didn't as he didn't like the movie instead he got me sholay which was alright. This movie has few good songs and the performances were okay, not to bad. its actually about three children who become orphans when they're father got killed and the uncles or who ever they are came to take over the Disney designs house and being nasty to the children so then raju chacha (Ajay) comes to save them... A Cool movie... too kiddish though... ~M~
