Wealthy Janki falls in love with poor Jaiprakash, much to the displeasure of her parents, and ends up getting married, and living with her husband. She subsequently gives birth to a daughter. Differences surface between the couple, and Janki leaves Jaiprakash and moves back in with her parents. Jaiprakash wants to see his daughter, but is prevented by Durgaprasad, Janki's dad, so he assumes the guise of a woman, calls himself Laxmi, and starts working as a nanny for his daughter. Complications arise when Durgaprasad gets attracted to Laxmi and wants to marry 'her'.Written by
Kamal Haasan has directed this superb movie where he disguises as a woman to win back his ex-wife and daughter from the father in law.
It has many funny and extremely hilarious moments throughout the movie and is my go to movie multiple number of times.
The music by Vishal Bhardwaj is like a breath of fresh air and add to it the lyrics of Gulzaar sahab provide an subtle touche.
Kamal Hassan has excelled in the titular character and is a complete genius. The support cast with their perfect comic timing are a treat to watch.. Kudos to Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Nassar and Paresh Rawal. They keep the humor going throughout.
Worth repeat watching!
