Storyline

Rukmini is well into her early 40s and is still unmarried. She decides to let her orphaned niece, Padmini, live with her, and together they device a scheme to entrap wealthy men, relieve them of their money, abandon them, and move on to better targets. They do succeed for quite a while, assuming various disguises, and names, amassing a vast fortune, until Padmini falls in love with one of her targets, a young man named Raghu, and decides to call it quits. An unstable Rukmini, who owes money to Monty, decides she cannot go it alone and concocts a scheme that will force Padmini to give up on Raghu and re-join forces with her to go on philandering unsuspecting wealthy men. Rukmini's first move is to seduce an equally unsuspecting Raghu and ensure that Padmini is a witness to this. The question remains, will a street-smart Padmini allow herself to be taken in by her aunt? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Cheap, silly, unoriginal, but it's not that bad actually
13 April 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Every film is worth watching for Rekha, and the lady proves yet again she can lead a film no matter how bad it is or how old she herself is. And indeed, Bachke Rehna Re Baba is a poor copy of a Hollywood movie - Heartbreakers (which in itself was quite crappy), but Rekha is wonderful in another sexy comic role, which evidently she invested much energy into. Bachke Rehna Re Baba is, as mentioned, cheap, silly and unoriginal. The writing is for the most part bad and it offers a great share of embarrassing moments, but then again, it's not as bad as some have suggested and is quite a decent one-time watch. The film never takes itself too seriously, it is lighthearted, the music is nice, and some of the locales are breathtaking. Of course the big plus was the presence of Rekha. Many have been critical of her work in this film (which I think has got to do more with the quality of the film rather than her actual performance). Playing a middle-aged con woman must be a tiresome cliché, but sexy Ms. Rekha is hilarious here and is still sizzling and attractive, making everything work just fine and proving her mettle as a true comedienne. You must see how brilliantly she handles a certain scene in which she is forced to taste an octopus and hide her total disgust, or her own singing for a number called "Eiffel Tower", which is awesome and funny. The combination with Mallika Sherawat is also effective, and boy, this Sherawat babe is just so smashing hot that her lack of true acting talent does not even come to mind while watching this. Paresh Rawal is one of my favourites, so all's good as far as casting goes. No doubt this is no some great film, but it's watchable enough, and is much better than what I had personally prepared myself for. Nice, silly fun.
