Storyline

He travels to another town on a business trip to buy several acres of grape-bearing trees, with Bahadur accompanying him. Although this is his first trip to this town, however, everyone appears to know him and Bahadur, including the Ticket Checker at the Railway Station, the taxi-driver, the Hotel Manager, local Police Inspector Sinha, a Jeweler named Chhedilal and his assistant Mansoor, and to top it all a woman named Sudha claims that she is his wife, and another woman named Tanu claims that she is his sister-in-law, while a third one named Alka claims that she is his mistress. All's not well for Bahadur either for he bears the brunt of this confusion when he finds out that he has a wife named Prema; a normally sane boss, who keeps on sniffing snuff and smoking alternatively, and who yells and slaps him frequently. After a nightmarish night, the hapless duo decide they have had enough and decide ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A 'comedy of "no" errors! '
15 December 2013 | by vinodmohankunalSee all my reviews

Angoor directed by Gulzar is inspired by Shakespeare's play COMEDY OF ERRORS.Angoor is considered to be one of the best Hindi comedy movies of all time.It is also one of the best selling videos in the DVD market.

The story is about two pairs of twins separated at birth( a malik-naukar set each) whose lives collide in their adulthood when pair no.2 comes to pair no.1 's city.The whole film narrates the confusion that takes place henceforth for the next 2 days.All the characters are very well etched and leave a mark.The film has to be watched to enjoy it.

The direction by Gulzar is flawless.The dialogues,lyrics(especially the song 'Preetam Aan Milo'),costumes,art direction,everything is simple,apt,perfect and realistic.The music by R.D.Burman is okay.There are only 3 songs in the film,of which 'Preetam Aan Milo' stands out.The first song could have been done away with,still it wasn't bad or intolerable.

Coming to the performances the late Sanjeev Kumar stands out.His expressions are simply superb.No actor can even touch him.I heard that Angoor is being remade,but without Sanjeev Kumar there can be no Angoor.So, please drop the stupid idea of remaking this classic.One should not mess around with classics.Deven Verma is equally brilliant in his role.Moushumi Chatterjee,Deepti Naval and Aruna Irani are very good. The supporting cast comprising Padma Chavan,Yunus Parvez,T.P.Jain, C.S.Dubey,Col.Trilok Kapoor and Ram Mohan are also very good and leave a mark in whatever little they have to do.Utpal Dutt and Shammi are memorable in their special appearances.

On the overall,Angoor is a continuous laugh riot which has to be watched by everybody!I simply loved it!
