Great movie....great performances
19 April 2005 | by shashikrishnaSee all my reviews

'Muskuraahat' was one of the most under rated movies of its times. As a teenager I loved the comic approach this movie took. The story basically takes place in Ooty where Jay Mehta and Annu Kapoor are guides for visiting tourists. Amrish Puri plays a strict retired army man who lives his life on his own terms. Revathi plays a mentally challenged girl who ends up in these people's lives. The movie has me laughing even today due to the witty lines and extremely competent performances by the unknown Jay Mehta and of course, the immensely talented Annu Kapoor. Revathi once again proves that she is a fine performer with her (possibly first) Hindi performance. Amrish Puri is super cool as ever. The movie also had some very soulful numbers including "Gun gun karta aaya bhanwra..." Its a shame this movie did not do well at the box office, but its a perfect movie for a lazy afternoon when all you want to do is be in bed and laugh your head off.

I give it a cool 7 out of 10 for the laughters.
