Storyline

Delhi-based math teacher Santosh Duggal drives a scooter and lives in a small apartment along with his wife, Kusum; a collegian daughter, Payal; and a school-going son, Sandeep. He also moonlights with a tutoring center called Chatwal Coaching Class in order to make ends meet. Hoping to pacify his family with his income-tax refund, he will instead be compelled to give up its entire amount after his Meerut-based sister Urmi invites them over to a wedding. He borrows a car from a neighbor, Farooqui, and, after a rather dramatic trip, is forced to compensate him as the car gets damaged. Unable to bear taunts that he cannot afford a car, he decides to buy one. It is this decision that will force Payal to seek employment in a call center. Sandeep will confess that he has been gambling, which leaves Santosh with no alternative but to consider accepting bribes from students and risk being exposed on live TV.

Entertaining Middle Class Movie. Makes one proud of a honorable life lived.
20 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent middle class movie. Average teacher lives a honorable life with a wife and 2 smart kids. Does his best in his job every day and helps his students become brilliant engineers and doctors. But teachers job doesn't pay much so faces social status dilemmas in day to day life. Kids and wife love him and have great respect toward him despise their regret with the fact that he cannot bring them luxuries of life that their friends have.

Sensible comedy. Decent action. Relates to day to day life in India in a very proud way.

The movie is about how they overcome day to day events/disappointments/regrets as a result of their social interaction. Rishi kapoor chose an excellent story and role. I associate myself personally with Rishi kapoor and hope to be as strong to resist the life's temptations and live a honorable life. If you cant buy a car, it hurts you that day when somebody points out that fact but you forget it sooner than you think. if you surrender to that temptation and buy a car with undeserved money, you will be less confident and feel the shame for the rest of your life. Its a trade off between 'BigGainNow+LifeLongRegret' vs 'UnhappinesNow+LifeLongPride+RoleModelForYourKids'.

I will not waste any opportunity to show this movie to my family. Should be in my DVD collection.
