Vijay struggles as a dockworker. Eventually, he becomes a leading figure of the underworld, while his younger brother, Ravi, is an educated, upright policeman. This divide causes problems in their relationship.
Don, a wanted criminal, dies in a police chase. DSP D'Silva is the only one who knows about his death, and to get hold of the gang he trains Don-lookalike Vijay. But Vijay faces danger from the police and from within the gang.
Raghav brags that he can smell a rat or an impersonator automatically, and Dr. Parimal Tripathi decides to take him on - result: funny family slapstick comedy, with a dose of pure Hindi and Urdu thrown in, especially the dialogue delivery by Om Prakash, Dharmendra, and Amitabh Bachchan. Notable songs are :Sare ga ma, ma sa re ga ma...."; "Ab ke sajan sawan me, aag lagegi badan mein, ghata barshegi, magar tarsegi nazar, mil na sakenghe do mahn ek hi aagan mein..."; "Chupke chupke chal di purvaiya, basuri bajaike raas rachaye daiya re daiya, chupke...".Written by
Hrishikesh Mukherjee known for his simple and yet excellent movies gives us a comedy which is so delightful, it is remembered even today
The film has several hilarious moments, especially between Dharmendra-Om Prakash and will make you die laughing especially their Hindi vs English scenes
The film has all ingredients well balanced, comedy, romance and it makes for an entertaining film something we miss from today's comedies especially Rohit Shetty type of rubbish comedies
The first half has several hilarious moments which make you die laughing while even the second half have several hilarious moments and you'll keep waiting for more
Direction by Hrishikesh Mukherjee is classic Music by S.D.Burman is superb, Sare Gamapa sung by Kishore/Rafi is superb while Ab ke Sawan is superb and rest are superb
Dharmendra shows his range as a comedian and does a brilliant job, often known for his action roles, Dharmendra was superb in 70s in all genres sadly post 80's his comedy became terrible But here he excels Amitabh in a supporting role excels in his comic part perhaps his first comic role,his expressions and dialogue delivery are flawless Both appeared together in SHOLAY and their chemistry is fabulous Surprisingly both diverse films in the same year Amitabh and Hrishikesh made several classic films like ANAND(1971), ABHIMAAN(1973), MILI(1975), ALAAP and BEMISAAL(1982) Sharmila is a natural and does a brilliant job Jaya Bachchan too leaves a mark in a smaller role Om Prakash is hilarious in his role, his role is the important part in the film and he excels in his part Amongst rest Asrani in a small role does well and rest are okay
