Storyline

Kishore, also known as Funtoosh to his friends and family, is an unemployed loafer who falls in love with the pretty Meena. Meena's father is a crazy, but kind, scientist working on a secret formula being sponsored by an evil businessman whose son is also in love with Meena. When Kishore stumbles upon the scientists basement lab he is zapped by iron rays which turn him into a semi-hulking strongman. Later his superpowers wear off and he begins to shrink at a very rapid rate. A rare Bollywood foray into the science fiction genre done up as a comedy with the usual song and dance numbers. Written by Michael Barnum

One of Bollywood's Earliest Science Fiction Films
29 January 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Shreeman Funtoosh is a story of an unemployed youth Kishore(Kishore Kumar)who falls in love with a beautiful girl Meena(Kumkum). Meena's father Mr.Verma is a scientist(Harindranath Chattopadhyay)who is crazy about his scientific discoveries. Meanwhile,a businessman named Shyam Lal(S.K.Shyam)wants his son Ranjan(Anoop Kumar)to get married to the scientist's daughter Meena.But,Meena loves Kishore. One day, Kishore visits Meena's place and he accidentally gets in contact with the iron rays in her father's laboratory which is also situated in their home. Now, after coming in contact with these iron rays, Kishore becomes a destructive iron man. Whoever gets in contact with his body or touches him gets hurt very badly. After some time, Kishore starts shrinking rapidly at a fast pace and his superpowers start diminishing. On the other hand, the evil businessman Shyam Lal who is also the sponsor of the scientist's project warns him that if he wants to live safely then he will have to marry Meena to Ranjan & he will have to kill Kishore by misusing his scientific knowledge.What happens next? Would Mr.Verma be able to kill his daughter's lover? Would Meena marry Ranjan? What would be the fate of Kishore?To find out watch 'Shreeman Funtoosh'. Acting of all the artists is nice.I don't know if this film was a box-office success or not when it was released in 1965 because the concept of this movie was quite unique for the Hindi movie audiences who were used to watching romantic & social films in the 1960s. Science fiction was a new concept then.
