Storyline

Raj (Naseeruddin Shah) is a slum dweller, who one day comes to know that he has inherited the business and property from his grand-father worth 3.3 billion Indian rupees. Stunned and delighted at the same time, he gleefully arrives at his former grand-father's estate to claim his inheritance, only to be told that there is a clause attached: which is that he must spend 300 Million rupees in 30 days or else risk losing his inheritance altogether. How can a slum dweller who has never held a thousand rupees in his hands on any given day, be expected to spend 10 million a day? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A pretty nicely made Hindi version of Richard Pryor's 1985 comedy Brewster's Million. Naseeruddin Shah as Richard Pryor Satish Shah as John Candy Cricket as Baseball!! Sunil Gavaskar's cameo is the most creative thing to the director's credit in the whole movie. If you really want to enjoy some laughs, I would recommend you watch the original. Overall the movie is not bad at all. Naseeruddin Shah is probably the only reason this movie was watched and he has fit outstandingly in Richard Pryor's shoes. Supported by a very talented Satish Shah, the movie does not have a dull moment. The mention of the original would've been nice in the closing credits, but just like countless other bollywood copies, it is missing and hence keeps the plagiarism tradition in bollywood alive and kicking.
